Interesting that this film is featured on the IMDb
19 July 2001 | by (Sllih D'naldoow, Ainrofilac) – See all my reviews

This isn't really a feature film, and it's hardly a short. What it actually is is a home movie with a plot. 15-year-old Steve Speilberg thought his dad's 8mm camera was pretty cool, so he made a movie about brave soldiers fighting nazis during WWII. A lot like the other Speilberg film Battle Squad, filmed the same year, with a bunch of kid soldiers. Lot's of fun, even though all we see are a few seconds of the film.
