Decent WW2 Doc
20 June 2008 | by (Louisville, KY) – See all my reviews

Your Job in Germany (1945)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

WW2 propaganda film from director Capra tells young troops why they should overtake Germany as well as why they should put them in the ground so that they can never rise up again. The film tells how Germany has always been evil and when given a second chance they ruin in and send another person like Hitler. I know these films were made to rally troops during WW2 but looking at them today you can't help but call them rather racist. This film here at least says you should respect their customs yet it then follows that by saying you shouldn't talk to their people because you can't trust them. The film runs just over ten-minutes and pretty much tries to pump up Americans and throw a fear factor into things. This is certainly a film of its era and I'm sure most will find it boring but if you're interested in these films its not too bad.
