A German war propaganda movie- but well acted
8 April 2001 | by (Dublin, Ireland) – See all my reviews

A longtime civil servant in Lübeck is unjustly forced to retire, but he voluntary returns to his post after his city is hit by Allied bombing in World War Two. Heinrich George, who plays the lead, is great to watch as always, and although being a typical propaganda feature this German movie is one of the few of its time that depicts everyday life in Germany during the war.
