The worse side of humanity
22 August 2014 | by davidbelandSee all my reviews

Amazing images, great presentation, awesome music, effective narration and excellent colorization job. A bit confusing here and there (unlike "Apocalypse: la 2eme guerre mondiale") due to the complexity of that war i guess, but i'm not an expert in politics or historical facts, so it was expected somehow.

The music is really efficient and the sound effects are well made but i was surprised by the bad audio mix from time to time; the level of the narrator (Mathieu Kassovitz) is unequal and sometime buried by the music.

I will watch it a couple times because there's a tremendous amount of information. The horror of the war and the worse side of humanity is very well pictured and of course some scenes are quite disturbing.

Really fantastic images, it's definitely a "must watch"!
