Rookie got his gun.
3 February 2011 | by See all my reviews

There was a FRench movie called "Un Taxi Pour Tobruk" in the early sixties but it has nothing (or almost nothing to do with "Tobruk" except for the historical context).Based on a true story ,it deals with the plight of young Czech volunteers who were sent to war without any training.This is a situation which is still happening today when even children become recruits.This is a realistic depiction ,not very story like ,sometimes close to documentary ,depicting the sufferings and the small joys (the mail is one of their one pleasures but some of them do not receive any letters ).Even the cliché,as old as the hills ,of the sarge with a heart of stone,is avoided.Not exactly an entertaining movie ,but an honest one ,which shows war for what it is : young men dying when their life has barely begun.
