Trivia

Mike W comments: "There is also a very strange Moog synthesizer score, repeating an electronic loop every few minutes again." This "loop" was mainly caused by a machine fault during the recording of the music in the studio. We increased the fault mechanically - no modern effects black-box at that time! - and the result is what finally went into the music track at the mix. See more »

German predecessor to Brian de Palma´s "Casualties of War" (1989)
11 February 2002 | by See all my reviews

Michael Verhoeven´s "O.K." is a Vietnam war drama that takes place in the forests of Bavaria and all actors permanently speak with a Bavarian accent, although they play US-soldiers... Sounds funny, but it isn´t: the story is based on a true incident, when four American G.I.s brutally raped a 16 year old Vietnamese girl and murdered her afterwards. Only on member of the group, who didn´t take part at the crime tried to bring his companions to court-martial...

Sounds familiar? Brian de Palma later filmed the same story under the title "Casualties of War" that starred Michael J. Fox and Sean Penn. But in comparison to de Palma´s stereotype Hollywood-pathos, Verhoeven´s movie is a legendary cult flick, which caused an immense scandal on the greatest German film festival in Berlin what even led to the break-off of the event.

The film itself is shot in muddy black&white-pictures, it contains no score and this idea was later used in "I spit on your grave" again. However, "O.K." is not as loud as the US-movie! It is another hidden gem, notorious for its reputation and one of the most interesting cinematic experiments I´ve ever seen!!
