Now playing at a bunker near you
18 November 2001 | by (Huntington, NY) – See all my reviews

KOLBERG was an attempt by the Nazi Party to make a GONE WITH THE WIND sized epic to boost morale. There were some small problems. First, many soldier, supplies, etc that were to be used in the real war were diverted to the shooting location of this big period piece and used there. The film was finished circa April 1945, when the Nazi party was reduced to a few frightened fanatics huddled in bunkers, awaiting surrender or certain death. Third, except for a few well staged moments, this is a boring, overly sentimental epic. As on criitc put it, "It's music score is so sweet, it makes THE SOUND OF MUSIC sound like punk rock." A film worth having in your video collection.
