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 »

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.
