COLD AND UNINVOLVED
18 May 1999 | by (Amsterdam, The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Götz George has a fine role here, but that is about the only feature of this WW2 film. Director Zbonek never gets a real control of things, the film is cold and uninvolved; and a real tension in the relationship between the two brothers is never established. With some doctoring on the script we could have been spared an introductory exposé that is awkward and very 60's-modern, and that is rather separated from the main story.

One of the many WW2 films that only repeat WW2 without adding something new.
