Scenes of Wartime Germany.
18 December 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was one of the last motion pictures made in Germany during World War II and gives one the feel for mid war period in that country.

While the Nazi Government is never mentioned, the film appeals to the German's work ethic in crafting the aeronautical tools for Victory, final victory as in "Endsieg". From the background one can see that the movie was filmed on site at Heinkle Aircraft's Rostock on the Baltic facility. Matter of fact the "owner" of the factory even looks like Ernst Heinkle, the real owner of Heinkle. There are nice line ups of the standard Heinkle 111 bombers of the period, and if you look closely you'll see The secret Heinkle 177 "Greif" in a background shot that the censors must have missed. "Production for the Front" should be the sub title of this movie as the factory scenes involving the young apprentices spending every moment for a few weeks working overtime producing cockpits for the He-111 to replace those lost in a "fire" (wartime bombing?") seems to be the message of the film. The theme music and pieces through out the movie are catchy if you see the movie more than once you may find yourself humming some of the tunes next day! The cast is very professional, my German is not that good, but most of the words can be easily understood and the plot followed. Actually quite a few plots thread through this one but that seems to be common in German wartime movies.

Eberhard Krüger at the young age of nine or so is easily recognised as the, now older, Hardy Kruger of US movies. The rest of the cast puts on a very impressive performance considering that this was made to induce a younger viewing population to consider working in aviation production at an early age.

If you like what you see the first viewing, try and see it a few more times to completely understand it.
