Trivia

The art department used 275US t debris to dress the central set - the crossroad. They had to take care, that there wasn't any foam concrete within this debris, which wasn't invented back in 1946. They added metal and pieces of furniture, that it fitted for this area - but no wood, as it has already been fueled during the hard winter 1945. See more »

Goofs

Sara wears high heeled shoes with her uniform, which would not be allowed. The proper footwear would have been low heeled oxfords. See more »

Great movie great casting
23 September 2019 | by runewinja-948-483180See all my reviews

I don't understand why so many low ratings. The movie has a great casting with a moving plot line that is more sad than comedy but touches you. A classic german movie I would say.
