Watch it, if only for spite
11 December 2018 | by pesic-1See all my reviews

When ridiculous and utterly laughable WWII Allied propaganda poses as a film, you are very unlikely to see descriptions like the one for this film. In the very first sentence it says the film 'purports' to present the life of Horst Wessel. Because, you know, nothing made in Germany back then had any truth to it, and was a nasty lie. Meanwhile, a work of total fiction, like Schindler's List, a movie based on a book which explicitly says it is NOT based on actual events, is being shown to schoolchildren as virtually a documentary.
