Goofs

The movie shows a formula for the distribution of Holy Communion in the Roman Catholic Mass (priest says "Corpus Christi", communicant says "Amen") that was introduced in 1969. In 1954 the priest would have said "Corpus Domini nostri Jesu Christi custodiat animam tuam in vitam aeternam. Amen" and the communicant would have remained silent. See more »

good war movie
6 January 2003 | by nuechtiSee all my reviews

The movie is a good war movie. What is a good war movie? No heroes, no suicide attacks, no nonsense behaviour. It is quite a while since I've seen it, but I still remember having been touched deeply by the feeling the movie left after having watched it...any movie accomplishing that is worth to be seen.
