The truth in German courts on result of war criminal cases
27 September 2003 | by (Philippines) – See all my reviews

This is based on a true story, it is a pity that it is still not available today on DVD, I would love to see this film again.

But I do remember watching it with a damp handkerchief, and thinking their is not much justice in this world, but hopefully the guilty will get their just deserts in the afterlife, at least thats whats keeps me sane when watching this film.

It looks a little dated now, but the acting is very good as you would expect from these outstanding actors, what can I say, 10 out of 10.
