In 1944 many Germans in Eastern Prussia believed like Lena von Mahlenberg, daughter of a local aristocrat, that Hitler would surrender and spare them from being invaded by the vengeful Russian Red Army. He didn't and they had to flee.

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 »
Good to see for anyone who's interested in the bombing of Dresden
I have no idea how historically accurate this movie is, but it gives a good idea of what the bombing of Dresden was like. Yes, there's all sorts of drama and even romance woven into the plot. To me that's expected, otherwise it would be a documentary and maybe even boring. It's really well done for a TV film. The acting is good. The storyline is believable. The effects are very realistic. I don't think this movie was made so that Germans can feel sorry for their suffering under Hitler. Instead, I think it's an acknowledgement of the suffering and it gives the current and future generations a view of the horror of the past. I wish there were stuff of this caliber made for American TV. I hope this gets released with English subtitles so that English speaking audiences get to see it.
