Surprisingly good!
10 March 2007 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

I finally got a copy of There Will Be No Leave Today (It has German subtitles, which helped a little since I know some German, but the dialog does not matter that much).

The film is about solders who have to remove WWII bombs which where found under a public road and drive them outside the town where they will be blown up.

It surprised me how good it was. There is very little of the Tarkovsky touch here and the camera movements and the editing are quite traditional (but still very well done). It could almost have been made in Hollywood.

What surprised me the most though was how good Tarkovsky was in directing a thriller. I was biting my nails midway though the film. See it if you possibly can.
