Lowkeyed, but intense drama - well acted
16 May 2000 | by (Schleswig, Germany) – See all my reviews

In the summer of 45 this film was shot as the bodies of executed resistance-fighters were still not quite cold. It is done with great respect for their achievement, but still with a very realistic touch (except for the escape, I think). So close to the war it conveys the thoughts and feelings of the insecurity and longing for an end to the german occupation of our country.
