Storyline

Beatles' "significance" pushed to the breaking point in this bizarre documentary that juxtaposes their songs (sung by a number of rock stars) with World War II newsreel footage. Helen Reddy sings "Fool On The Hill" while Hitler relaxes at Bertchtesgaden, and Rod Stewart husks "Get Back" while Nazi troops goose step. Written by Anonymous

Oddly compelling
22 November 2007 | by (Northern California) – See all my reviews

This film isn't perfect but it does get under your skin. The music combined with the war footage can evoke feelings you might not have expected. Even though the songs were not written to be the soundtrack for World War II, they have been remixed here to do an unusually evocative job.

This film for sure was ahead of its time, mixing media from generations to help convey a time in our history where civilization was on the brink of destroying itself.

Most people don't realize that many of our first rock and roll 'heroes' were WWII War babies, the music that came out of them was planted by the experiences they had as children growing up in a war torn country. So though it was not written for collage of WWII footage, there's an eerie fit.

Keep in mind that when watching some of this footage, there are real lives being lost. The sacrifice of that generation should not be forgotten and this film helps to preserve it a little.

BTW - If you want to see this film, write me.
