Storyline

Western Europe, 1945.

The pair stumble across a ragtag group of orphans who have been trained as ruthless killers. The two soldiers, the orphans, and the two adults who serve as surrogate parents to the children are forced to make a desperate stand against a Nazi tank battalion who have them trapped inside an old crumbling building.

Goofs

One of the AWOL soldiers is a paratrooper from the 82nd Airborne Division. He wears the correct airborne-style helmet, which has a chin cup and extra reinforcing straps. The other GI is a regular ground infantryman whose helmet should have a standard, simple strap with no chin cup. However, he too is wearing an airborne helmet. See more »

Well worth your time
10 July 2004 | by hoodcsaSee all my reviews

It's good to see there are still some filmmakers out there who push their craft beyond some tired formula. Despite a low budget (which shows at times) this film is obviously a labor of love for the director and the cast. The scenes involving the children are superbly handled and director Jeff Burr deserves enormous credit for their effectiveness. I love war films and this one works on that level, but it can't be pigeon holed as just another war movie. There's a lot going on and sometimes the filmmakers' reach exceeds their grasp, but more often the movie is very, very effective. This movie will have you talking.
