In 1942, Friedrich Weimer's boxing skills get him an appointment to a National Political Academy (NaPolA) - high schools that produce Nazi elite. Over his father's objections, Friedrich enrolls, seeing this as his ticket out of factory life to university and a good salary. During his year in seventh column (fifth form), this innocence is altered as Friedrich encounters hazing, cruelty, death, and the Nazi code. His friendship with Albrecht, the ascetic son of the area's governor, is central to this education; a night in the forest hunting for escaped Russian POWs brings things to a head. Written by
Before watching this film I checked the comments first on IMDb, and I already expected to see a good movie, but when this film was ended I was left absolutely astonished and I was staring into the nothing for the next 30 minutes thinking about it.
This film is absolutely a great masterpiece. The storyline, the things that happen in this film, the cruelty of some characters completely blew me away and made me forgot my average life for quite some time.
This movie will be one of mine all time favorites, if you can get your hands on this movie, go see it!
This film is one of the most underrated films on IMDb, it's great! absolutely amazing I can't say it enough.
10/10, no doubt about that.
