In 1992, a cast of relative unknowns was assembled for this unusual war film, set during the Ardennes campaign, in 1944. Gary Sinese, Kevin Dillon, and Ethan Hawke, went on to greater things, and some of the reasons why can be seen in their earlier performances here. A small detachment of American soldiers stumbles across some German troops during the fighting. The Germans want to surrender, so a mock battle is staged, after which the Germans become prisoners. However, the truce is tested by events, and eventually breaks down, with a bloody outcome. Intelligent and different, yet still familiar in structure, this interesting film will leave you thinking about another side to war.
