Great film. Be sure to check it out.
15 February 2007 | by eggworkSee all my reviews

This is a terrific film. It's presented in a unique event-based style that is pleasing whether you're a fan of documentaries or not. The combination of investigative reporting and archival footage made me gasp as I was transported over 6 decades of time. Be sure to check this film out at your local film festival. I would highly recommend getting a copy of this movie for any World War II history buffs in your family. In addition, the film incorporates cutting-edge graphics and music. I can understand why Sundance 2007 gave the film an honorable mention. Looking forward to seeing the next film from William Lorton. This is a true gem.
