Dull and 50-ish style
2 February 2014 | by airborne60See all my reviews

This movie has a style and acting quality of the 50:s, more like the three "08/15" movies than anything produced in 1989. Also the music...makes me wonder in what decade the film was actually made.

The story is somehow vague, and it is difficult to connect to any thoughts on how it actually was in those late days of WWII. Most movies, good or bad, try to depict some feeling, some theme or some statement on what the director wants to come through with. This completely fails in this film, possibly due to the lame acting. Kirst's book is a masterpiece and gives, obviously without any pictures, a far better feeling of the times.

One of the few positives is that the film is actually German, meaning that the language is correct.
