A Film about an austrian hero
21 February 2004 | by (Vienna,Austria) – See all my reviews

This semi- documentary Film is about the austrian pacifistic and very religious guy: Franz Jägerstätter. Born 1907 in St. Radegund in Upper- Austria. When World War 2 started, he refused to fight, because he didn´t want to kill other people. The refusion of the military service was a sin, at the point of view of the NS. So they decided to bring Jägerstätter in front of a military court, where he was condemn to death. On the ninth of August 1943 he was execute.

Sadly this is an austrian true story. Director Axel Corti (1933-1993) filmed this movie in black and white, because this time (1938-1945) was so depressing, that there "was no colour". Actor Kurt Weinzierl (1931) a famous austrian actor plays still fantastic. A masterpiece.
