Deals with idea that some of us may not leave any hint about our presence in this world for next generation
Confused, pretentious, with lot of aimless dialogs. Deals with idea that some of us may not leave any hint about our presence in this world for next generation, trough a story about German army medical doctor in Russian front (WWII). A lot of cruel and cold killing is present which should show us how the life and war are senseless, and how human life could be erased easily (the theme which is 100 of times used and developed better before).
Some nice photography is present in this B/W movie.
Movie doesn't urge you to think about it in any way, upon leaving the cinema.
