D-DAY 6.6.44 a Semi Documentary Movies
24 February 2005 | by (Indonesia) – See all my reviews

D-DAY, the greatest and famous military invasion during the World War II, is still a great story to tell. There's so many movies, documentary, literature, have been made to honor the men and women who sacrifice their life, for the name of freedom. D-Day tells the epic story of the preparation and execution of the Allied invasion of Normandy. It tells the story of the defense of the Western Front by the forces of the German Empire, and of the complex and deadly secret war fought by the men and women of France and mainland Europe. D-Day brings to life the dramatic and astounding tales of courage and sacrifice, joy and despair, love and betrayal.

D-DAY 6.6.44 brilliantly produced By Richard Dale (The Human Body, Walking with Cavemen, Teachers). Narrated by Ian Holmes, this semi documentary movies, trying to dramatic the preparations, and the execution itself. If you see this set of DVD, it will remain you the format of "Band of Brothers" mini series. There are stories that tell by a few old man/woman, which actually lived as a real actor on the D-DAY.

The war scene is good enough, if you don't compare them with "Saving Private Ryan" and "Band of Brothers", to describe and tells what happened on the hours of the D-DAY. The actors are really well chosen, e.g Rommel actors is very look a like the real person.

Maybe a little cons for the story is, it's only mention the landing of the troopers at the beaches, and lack of story which paratroopers who parachutes, and dramatically scattered on landing, in all over the Normandy area, where no one has the right point landing at the early morning of D-DAY. The portion for this story is very little, which only mentioned the British 9th parachutes regiment. There're no story about the famous US 101 Airbourne paratrooper landing.

But above the all, if you a World War II histories lovers, this DVD set is a must to you. This is another well done D-DAY story.
