Good German war adventure.
24 June 2009 | by (Portugal) – See all my reviews

In my opinion,it's really interesting to watch this sort of films and see to the other side of the hill,i mean the war by the perspective of the Germans.There is another title that i strongly recommend to those who intend to experience something different from all the American and British war movies easy to consume in which the "GOOD GUYS" beats the "BAD Nazis",the film i am referring to is DER STERN VON AFRIKA. I could cite other recent examples where one can have some knowledge of the war stories and adventures from the "enemies" point of view, but i think the great deal here is that we are talking about works made at a time close to historical events what shows some sort of authenticity and that is the case of ROMMEL RUFT KAIRO including the fact of being filmed in real locations at Cairo and Sahara desert.
