In expressive, melodic tones, the fraternal pair debate God's true message and intent for His creations, a conflict that leads their followers - in extravagantly choreographed song and dance - towards chaos and sin.
Great performances of uniformed men (Nazi's?) in town, great musical arrangements on the side and a lot of cultural references and newspaper headlines here. Furthermore a pretty boring total spectacle, for next to some religious philosophy the film itself only offers us some nice images, mostly the faces of the Nazi men responsible for it remain on the back of your head after viewing this flick. What beautiful eyes those Nazi boys had! As if the direction was focused mainly upon pardoning one's own responsible activities in the Second World War. But why didn't the woman near the ending have no armpit hair where there definitely should have been knowing the Germans in those days the way I do??
