Did You Know?

Goofs:
Factual errors: Several times throughout the film, SS officers are seen wearing the famous 1930s era black SS uniforms. This is very common mistake in many WW2 films. The Black SS uniforms were discontinued at the start of the war in 1939 and replaced by the green/gray uniform. Only Waffen SS tank crews wore black uniforms in combat. This was not, however, the all-black uniform worn by the pre-war SS, but rather a short, black waist-cut coat similar in style to that worn by tank crews in the Wehrmacht.See more »

a stunning accomplishment, 19 December 2002
Author: RKIRCHHOFF from Santa Paula, CA

one of the greatest French films of the last few decades yet, sadly, a film almost entirely overlooked by most critics...including the Lelouch-bashers of the contemporary French film industry.

make no mistake: most of those who have seen it--certainly everyone I know who has seen it--tend to regard it as a genuine classic of world cinema and the finest film of the year of its release.

powerful, skillful and impassioned, I can recommend it without reservation.

a triumph for all concerned.
