Plot better than the movie
18 November 2002 | by jerebronSee all my reviews

Despite terrible dubbing and some amateuristic scenes, the movie keeps the viewer in it's grip. The tribulations of an American GI during the Ardennes offensive and the people he encounters, keeps you riveted all the way through the unexpected ending. Great characters in a cold and snowy Belgium. I saw this movie in the early 70's and still remember it clearly. Most movies I usually forget.
