Goofs

In using stock footage to depict the wartime bombing of Europe, some of the footage, seen just before the scene where two British officers are arguing over the value of bombing German cities, shows a US B-29 Superfortress. Such bombers were never used in the European theatre of World War II - they were only used against Japan. See more »

Excellent cast in a convincing anti-war drama
9 March 2006 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

A fictional love drama set on the background of Dresden at the end of World War II achieves to illuminate the complexity of human characters under the life-threatening terror of the Nazi-regime and the war.

The excellent cast with Felicitas Woll, John Light and Benjamin Sadler as main figures involve the viewer into a very personal drama. As the screenplay avoids black-and-white-painting, multi-layered characters invite the viewer to a differentiating point of view.

Realistic fire-scenes, carefully computer-animated flying-sequences and the participation of both British and German historians in pre-production contribute to a gripping movie about a sensitive point in German history.
