- Customer reviews:
Sam Peckinpah's only war film follows the story of a doomed German platoon facing annihilation at the hands of the Russians in 1943. Non-Nazi German soldier Steiner (James Coburn) resents the arrival of arrogant Prussian Stransky (Maximillian Schell) as his new commanding officer. Stransky is desperate to win an Iron Cross - a medal Steiner has already earned, but considers worthless - and so promotes the highly-recommended Steiner to sergeant. During a siege, Stransky hides in his bunker, terrified of battle, only to later file a report claiming that he himself led a victorious counter-attack. However, when Steiner disputes this Stransky takes measures to remove him.

Very good HD transfer, maintaining the original and fascinating dirt and grain, with a pretty good audio quailty and interesting extra, including a long abstract of Passion and Poetry, a german documentary on Peckimpah.
One of his best and least known. A brave and bitter tale of misery, courage and desperation from the "wrong" point of view: that of the german side.
You find his main topics like honor, rebellion toward authority, pervert fascination for violence and war and an even bigger sense of nihilism and lack of hope.
With a gigantic James Coburn (maybe at the levels of Leone's Duck you sucker!") and James Mason, subtle, mean and however fragile and passive/aggressive like he could only do like that.
