Two of the friends are brothers, the eldest, Wilhelm (Volker Bruch), who is a junior army officer, and his pacifist brother, Friedhelm (Tom Schilling), a private in the army, are shortly off to participate in Operation Barbarossa, the German invasion of Russia, which begins on June 22nd 1941. Two are girls, Charlotte (Miriam Stein), who is in love with Wilhelm, and Greta (Katharina Schuttler), an opportunistic, somewhat cynical would be singer, working as barmaid. The final member of this group is Viktor (Ludwig Trepte), who is Jewish and therefore, perhaps, the most unlikely. Some critics were left `open-mouthed' at the improbability of any twenty-something German's, having had nine years of Nazi indoctrination, enjoying friendly relations with a Jew. However, Viktor and Greta's relationship is a little more than friendly and in the opening scene during which the group assembles in the bar for the last time before they all have to go their own way, Greta establishes a fateful relationship with an SS officer who interrupts their party, in order to save Viktor from discovery.Read more ›
This was a truly gripping drama showing the horrors of war and how it affected the lives of the young protagonists we meet in the first section. It was so interesting to see it from the German perspective for a change - I watched a recording of a panel discussion on it when I had finished. It has been very controversial and criticised in some of the countries where it has been screened. I thought the ending was a bit unbelievable but I appreciate it was a drama not a documentary.
The Germans and the Russians fought the greatest battles in history. The tank battle set in Minsk in Russia was the decisive battle that changed the 2nd World War, and was the biggest tank battle scene ever, with over 7,000 tanks taking part.
The Germans had most of their tanks destroyed by the Russians, and from then on the Russians advanced rapidly towards Germany and the defeat of Nazi Germany.
The way the Germans killed Jews and partisans in huge numbers was typical of the Nazi outlook.
During that time I was a young boy in the UK and plotted the armies on a war map on the wall in the 1940s.
It was good to see the German dvd as they, the Germans, fought this war with Russia.
90% of the German army was stationed in Russia.
The shocking winter in Russia with deep snow caught the Germans unprepared. Planes could not fly, tanks refused to start with frozen oil.
I thoroughly enjoyed this movie.
