Goofs

In the English language version, during the bombing raid early on in the film, the British airmen in the bomber refer to enemy aircraft being at 'oh-eight-hundred hours' and 'oh-twelve-hundred hours'. This is clearly a mistranslation of the usual RAF way to refer to enemies by positions of the clock, in this case eight o'clock or twelve o'clock. See more »

Not for students of WW2
17 February 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I was hoping this would be of the calibre of Das Boot and echo the stark realism created by acclaimed German Director Leni RiefenStahl in her documentaries, sadly I was monumentally disappointed. The story line is implausible and defies credulity. An RAF airman is shot down and somehow finds his way to a hospital in Dresden. Anna a nurse whose father runs the hospital and is about to become engaged to a doctor she works with falls in love with the airman and they make love. The next evening at a lavish engagement party the airman turns up disguised as a German officer and dances with Anna. Although well directed and acted, to me it is soap opera of the lowest order.
