Storyline

The Spanish Civil War in the year 1936. Five brigadiers are singled out to stay behind in the Spanish Sierras and fend off the fascist enemy while the rest of the troops recede. They are supposed to rendezvous with a radio operator, but when they get to the meeting point there is nobody there. In search for the missing man, Kommissar Wittig is shot. Before his death he hands over a piece of paper with an important message which the remaining men have to transport across enemy lines. The paper is torn into five pieces and each piece is hidden in a cartridge. An odyssey across the mountain desert begins - with constant fear of enemy fire and dehydration. Written by c.winter

Trivia

Because filming could not take place in Spain, and filming in Bulgaria was limited to a few weeks, production designer Alfred Hirschmeier and his crew painted whole mountainsides white, likening the relief in Germany to the one in Bulgaria. See more »

Five o(w)n it
8 September 2011 | by See all my reviews

This movie was part of the retrospective at the Berlin International Film Festival in February 2011. A pretty solid entry into the war movie genre, it also might feel a bit dated to a few people. The acting is pretty decent and you have a very enticing story that you can follow, connected to 5 characters.

Don't expect there to be too much action though. It is more story driven if you will and you shouldn't expect too much of the action either. But that shouldn't be the main criteria that you judge the movie for. Hopefully it isn't because you probably wouldn't like it all then. But if you let yourself into that time and into the movie, then you can enjoy as much as most people who voted for it did
