Emelie's sniper rifle is a Mosin-Nagant M91/30 PU. This is a Soviet weapon which would have been found on the Eastern Front and highly unlikely to show up in Southern France (or anywhere in France for that matter). Even the ability for her to get ammunition (during the war) would have been near impossible. See more »
As a fan of the World War II genre, I can say that this movie is so much more than the sum of its individual parts. The acting was believable and if one overlooks a few of the plot gaps, this is an enjoyable way to spend 100 minutes.
Saints and Soldiers leaves you with feelings for all the main characters, something that many big-budget WWII productions lack. It's not a classic by any stretch of the imagination but when the movie is over you will feel satisfied.
The movie is currently available on Netflix so it's easy to overlook. Don't, you'll be missing a movie well worth watching.
