Storyline

A young American serviceman, stationed in Germany after the fall of the Third Reich, jeopardises his position with the Marshall Plan relief effort by breaking the non-fraternisatiom rule and falling in love with a young German woman. He uses his position to obtain food and luxuries for her that are in short supply, and all seems to be going well for the couple. What he doesn't realise is that the Werewolves, the Nazi guerrilla movement, have plans in which he features heavily. Written by Mark Thompson <mrt@oasis.icl.co.uk>

Fullerian lunacy, hundred proof
17 March 1999 | by See all my reviews

Only two directors could get away with Beethoven's Fifth coming in under the Columbia Pictures logo--Jean-Luc Godard and Sam Fuller. This movie, a B-minus take on JUDGMENT AT NUREMBURG, may rank as the nuttiest of all movies about the National Socialist Party; Fuller's admixture of fetishizing of and loathing for the Nazis may make you feel cuckoo birds are flying out of your ears.
