Trivia

Many of the German soldiers in the movie were not Germans, but Hungarians, Russians, Norwegians, Swedes, Americans, British and Canadian people. Many of which were students from Universities from around the Kansai area, like Osaka and Kyoto. Thus, when the soldiers were going to shout and talk and make noises, only the German people and people who could pronounce perfect, or good enough German were allowed to say something. See more »
