Trivia

During their first night in the bunker, when Kreuzmann is expressing his worries to Ebert about an American attack and the bunker being "not quite right," at the end of the conversation he says "God with us." Aside from being an obvious religious statement, it also refers to the saying that was inscribed on Germany Army belt buckles: "Gott mit uns" or "God with us." This was also common inscription on armour in the German military until the end of the Third Reich, and has a history and usage in Germany dating back as far as the Teutonic Order. See more »

Goofs

At one point a German general refers to George Patton's "Third Division." General Patton commanded the U.S. Third Army, an organization considerably bigger than a division. See more »

Quotes

LCpl. Schenke: Deserted or dead, either way, we can forget them.
Cpl. Baumann: Oh, you're all heart, Schenke.
LCpl. Schenke: [Slaps Cpl. Baumann] Shut your mouth, you bloody coward! You had your chance to find them, from what I hear, you prefer to hide away in the dark and do nothing!
Cpl. Baumann: If you're looking for a fight, Schenke, you'll have to try harder than that! When will you realize I am not fighting the same war as you?
LCpl. Schenke: Isn't that the truth?

intriguing, flawed, but still powerful
25 August 2003 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

yes. part of me desperately wanted a monster to come flying out of the woodwork, all teeth and claws and shredding horror. but in the end, what i got was an intriguing psychological horror film about the madness of humanity and the splits that occur both in social groups and in the mental structure of individuals. the first 65 minutes are a fairly hard slug, i didnt think it would make it at first. there was just too much build up for them ever to be able to actually pull it off. but they did, and how did they do it? understatment, simplicity. some people here have stated they were confused. yes it is somewhat confusing, there are some plots points that are a little fuzzy which dont help, but for the most part, the confusion comes from the very fact that the characters themselves are confused. the audidence isnt allowed to sit comfortably on the sidelines and get away without thinking about what is going on. there is an awful lot left unsaid in the film which is implied. and in the end it all boils down into a destruction of the most horrifying and realistic type. most people wont care for it. most people wont get it. but for those who do, they will remember this film, for managing to get under their skins and do something original with a worn out plot.
