Storyline

Early morning on 12 January 1939. A convoy of prisoners arrives in a concentration camp. The tired prisoners are goaded by the guards as soon as they arrive. Morning roll-call in the camp: one loss is recorded. A prisoner was shot as he tried to escape during the night, his corpse hangs from the barbed wire fence. A block leader discovers that two of the prisoners covered themselves with rags and empty cement sacks to keep off the worst of the cold. They will be punished in the evening. Work brigades set off and those remaining in the camp are ordered to dig a pit in the parade ground. No-one knows what for. The new arrivals are given camp clothes and their hair shaved off. The block leader interrogates the prisoners. Anyone who does not give a satisfactory answer is routinely beaten. An old man working on the pit dies of exhaustion. One of the other prisoners who tries to help him is put in solitary detention. The camp commandant dictates letters. Among other things, he reports to ... Written by Anonymous

Harrowing,political prisoners,face terrible times in a German concentration camp
15 December 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is probably the best film i have ever seen.From the moment the film starts you can feel for the prisoners in the camp. Scantily clad political and religious prisoners so harshly treated and in what seems to be such a cold and desolate place. With just a thin prison garment and many having no shoes,with the sleet coming down almost constantly.The prisoners are constantly being beaten for trying to keep warm but wear anything under your prison garment even a newspaper and you are savagely and mercilessly beaten. Even for having a religious view one prisoner for not penancing god was hauled up on a post by his hands that were tied behind his back. Show that you are a bit frail and the guards will work you to death. As the sleet falls one prisoner dies and there is a scramble for his wooden clogs.If you ever want to see a film that is Drama of the very best then watch Tag you will never forget it and it will be etched in your mind forever.
