Deserves a 11 instead a 10., 7 January 2005
In my opinion is the best war film I've ever seen. The story is one o
the best examples of the nonsense and madness of war. Seems incredible
that this movie has been done by Germany and released after 14 years
since the end of the war. You can see a traumatic passage from
childhood to maturity in the principal characters. The film is from the
late fifties so there is no big special effects like "saving private
Ryan". Also, the movie is not showing a major and historical battle,
with a lot of soldiers and tanks fighting between explosions. In
fact,the war scenes can be seen only in the last half hour. The final
scene on the bridge is one of the most disturbing scenes of war films.
