This is an action war film, and the amount of realism thrown out the window is no more than most, probably equivalent to the more famous "Force 10 From Navarone". This is another partisan against Nazi film, by the way.
At first, this looks like another silly foreign film full of cliché shots that echo, and characters who all try to talk tougher than any one else.
We realize the doctor, a sort of anti-hero, will be the major character early on, as the characters begin in a prisoner of war camp. There is the inevitable escape, and then more action, as six escapees join the partisans against the Nazis.
What could have been very cliché turns into very unpredictable and fresh material. We get a very good look at a multitude of interesting characters which makes this film come very alive, and show the waste of war very well. This is an excellent script, and was well directed. All parties involved did a good job, and this is one foreign war flick you will probably enjoy a bit.
