Virtually unwatchable .
22 September 2019 | by horst69See all my reviews

There is an almost constant overlay of a voice reading letters , while a somewhat decent war movie is shown - in the background .

That war movie would have been quite ok, without the tacky - and constant - recitation of terribly corny letters .

Which makes it even more annoying .
