Anti-War and love
14 April 1999 | by mifunesamuraiSee all my reviews

An anti-war film that explores the importance of humanity through a romantic love affair. At times it may seem like an overblown soap opera, but the restraint Helmut applies to the strong narrative pleases both the cynics and the romantic at heart.
