Private Lombos, tied to his family and his homeland by a strong loyalty, is serving in the Royal Hungarian Army. Due to an administrational error, he cannot go back home on leave. Despite his sorrow, he does his duty and takes up arms again to march further into the hell of the eastern front.

They talk through the night, and the old man's words tremble his unbroken faith in his family and his country. As the dawn approaches, soviet shtrafbat soldiers find them and Private Lombos falls into captivity, then soon he's forced to join the "mine tramplers", a penal battalion whose soldiers clear minefields by stepping on them. Lombos has a hard time fitting into this new scenery, but the ...

A very well done film
29 October 2018 | by abarks-99277See all my reviews

This movie can be found on the Drága Elza! YouTube channel with English subtitles.

First off, I don't know what the budget of this film was, all i know is they Nailed it! the actors were great. The special effects could sometimes be seen slightly out place such as snow falling be a screen effect, things like helmets, uniforms, and some props ect. looked a little to "clean" but not enough to were it seemed completely out place, mainly because the authenticity of the weapons and equipment used was well done. overall quite impressed.
