Masterpiece from an underrated director
26 April 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It is a shame that people need to die to get the attention they deserve. Raffaele Andreassi was a very good director. I have seen some of his documentaries and they are all very good but this movie is really something special, a true masterpiece! The plot is very unique. I have seen over 1000 movies but never something like this. It is a really different and brilliant World War 2 film. The originality makes this movie along with a storyline which isn't easy to figure out how it will end. Fred Robsham does a great job as Heinz, the German soldier and main character. The other actors do a very good job as well. This is a movie you should watch people. Rest in peace Raffaele!
