This movie has one special extra in its cast: A very particular extra, as the world only still operational German Tiger II tank. This tank belongs to the tank museum of Saumur, in France. It is one of the many still running tanks the museum keeps. It is a rare event to see this giant machine running. The museum's participation has been important to the making of this film. Transporting the Tiger on location has been an event too. It has required the usage of a special railroad flat-bed car that is also kept for this only purpose: It's a specialized German railway car captured at the end of the war. Another participant to this film is a vintage steam engine. The movie is still not released on DVD. It's been aired on a French TV channel in the mid 90's. Unseen since again then on TV.
