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

Excellent!
6 September 2005 | by (Chile) – See all my reviews

It's a fantastic film. I had the chance of listening to the music, first and the I went o see the movie and both experiences were great, something that I'd really like to repeat sometime again. I strongly recommend it. The atmosphere created by the director and the songs are really well matched with the II World War scenario. May be I got stuck on the music, because the performers are really great, just to name a few: Rod Stewart, Leo Sayer, Jeff Lynne, Elton John, Ambrosia, The Bee Gees, Keith Moon, Richard Cocciante, and the London Symphony Orchestra, it's really great! Maybe now the film is available on DVD, is it? And I'd be very pleased if you could tell me: Where can I get the soundtrack on CD? Sincerely, Álvaro
