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 »
When you are going to watch a movie called "Dresden", it's logical to think that historical bombing of Dresden must be the main argument in it. Unfortunately in this movie the bombing is almost residual in its plot.
We can see a beautiful (but unbelievable) love story between a British officer of the RAF and a pretty German nurse (all in a few days). No real problem about this, but for my was a disappoint because I waited for something different, for more history and less story.
Finally, bombing of the city happens, of course, but it results no impressive. It was one of the most terrible bombings made in history, but in my opinion this is not reflected in the movie, and this is the main cause of its fail.
Briefing, not a bad movie, but if you want to see a war movie or a disaster movie, try another.
