One of the most realistic WWII war movies and a great finale to the trilogy
5 November 2011 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

I should write this review in German - because although this movie has been translated into English as far as i know, it's really pointless to watch it if you don't know about the era, don't understand the historical context and don't understand the real meaning of certain terms - and i don't mean your standard 08/15 schoolbook knowledge.

This movies was made by those who experienced it FOR those who experienced it. And it's not at all (as some people nowadays claim) sympathetic with the Germans. But it doesn't categorically vilify all Germans either. We are all human and there are some good guys and some assholes in every country and you can't devalue people based on their country or race or profession etc.. That's a lesson people learned the hard way after WWII. But nowadays we claim to be so much smarter - but we really aren't and we are still devaluing people. And such prejudiced, standard 08/15 people won't get this movie - they won't even get the meaning of the title and they will think of it as a movie portraying the Nazis in a good light -when it really is one of the most ingenious anti-Nazi movies there are.
