Did You Know?


The tanks depicted rolling on the wheat field are German Pz III Ausf D, which are correct to the date, but alongside with them are some StuG III Ausf G tank destroyers, which were not produced until late 1942, more than two years after the events of the invasion of France. Though could seem that two years are not relevant, the StuG III are at least three generations more advanced that the early tanks available in 1940 so this would be similar to show machine guns in the American Revolutionary War or modern F-117 or F-22 fighters in Vietnam War, as examples.

War is Hell on earth.
2 May 2018 | by atwardziak-17124See all my reviews

I was deeply moved by this film. Most war films focus on the combatants, or the horrible genicide of the Holocaust, but this one captured the plight of refugees reluctantly leaving their homes in a hopeless attempt to avoid occupation, as their region was in WW1. The characters depicted totally captured my imagination. Their fear and suffering brought me to tears. My gauge of a very good movie is one where I completely forget I'm watching something on a screen. Acting, directing, cinematography, editing, musical score, and story...excellent.
