A magnificent story
26 March 2020 | by dorsautbmSee all my reviews

Hi all

I have seen many comments criticizing the English dubbing but having seen the film in French VO I will not allow myself to judge as rajotd.

This film is a loyal historical testimony concerning the brave soldiers (american and french) who fought in the pocket of Colmar and the links between them.

Very well shot and with complete historical realism we note however the small budget allocated to the effects, more real than special ;-)

However, where the film draws all its excellence, it is in the singular story that it tells and in the links between close characters that it brilliantly highlights.

Throughout each scene, the director's passion is felt and during the course of the film we understand how the script has been worked to achieve this result.

Therefore it is a touching, realistic and ultimately both simple and complex film for the story it tells!
