a good movie though involving a great amount of communist propaganda.
according to some sources the total casualty of Czechoslovakian civilian in WWII is about 40000. that means even they were all killed by gestapo....it was 22 per day in whole Czechoslovakia.. but in this movie, there are 20 killed every day in just one city.. impossible.right? also,arguably, gestapo killed more people near the end of the war not in the beginning...
personally, i think there were less than 10000 killed by gestapo.. and most of the victims were members of different resistance groups.
BTW that Germany actor was typecast as Nazis, traitors, and various villains in eastern European cinema .. what a tragedy for him..but why he looked so cunning and cruel??
