A remarkable film
20 January 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Wholeheartedly agree with other comment.

I first saw "One man's war" in the late 1980s, when it was shown at an art cinema here in Manchester in the UK. I have long been fascinated by the occupation of France during World War II-a peculiarly horrible but fascinating period, when all the norms in society were turned upside down-the crooks became the cops for example.

This film is a remarkable one, for its juxtaposition of wartime newsreels with commentary drawn from Ernst Junger's journals with a beautifully chosen soundtrack.

I know this film is very much a minority interest-there were only five other people in the cinema when I saw it.

I would dearly love to know what all the pieces of music in the soundtrack are-can anyone help?
