Excellent french-German war movie
8 April 2007 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

A really funny war movie and even today still worthwhile seeing. Tells a lot about the mentality of Germans and french...! Not only in the army but also about the people - even today. The 'movie-buffs' will know what I mean...a pity this film is far underrated and not very well known. Intense acting, riveting plot, keeps one glued to the story! Hardy Krueger and Lino Ventura are simply great actors! Hopefully these comments may change that the movie is better known in the future because it has all the chances to become a "war classic". Does anybody know if the film is available at least on (an European language version) VHS-video?
