Crop And Save
The War of the Vendee (2012)
Why a cast of children? Was the goal to save money? The film was badly written, poorly acted and the costumes were worse than most school plays. Truthfully it felt like a school play all throughout the film. While the goal was religious teaching, I find it appalling to watch children kill children in the name of religion. The film makes a mockery of very important events that shaped Europe and French history. It praises an awful Monarchy which is the best thing about the film. In other words, it might be the strangest film I have ever seen. It felt like evangelicals possessed some Catholic writers to create the world's strangest film.
Simply a great film that shows the efforts that a few Jewish refugees went through to return and fight the Nazi war machine. I saw it at the GI film festival. The film moved me because of it's strong story and by the end I was in tears. The filmmakers did an excellent job in presenting the stories of the troops. They also showed the effect that the holocaust had on them both before and after leaving Germany. The fact that the one of the men was used as an interrogator by the US troops was amazing and the response from the Nazis needs to be seen. I wish more documentaries were like this one.
