Schmonzette on the costs of the sudeten germans drama at the end of WW2. The movie barely gives insight in the facts indeed, but this background seems to have been enough to try to build up a movie on it. Hoerbinger the most convincing, Adorf not that much and Ferres, even in the suicidal role, shallow as quite often. Scratching dangerously along the kitsch in the first half, the peak is definitely reached towards the end. A happy end, of course. That adding an exotic location can't help is just a side note.
Near to be a complete waste of time. A typical german style try, although failed, to overcome the sad happenings, I guess.
