5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely brilliant, 28 Dec. 2002
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dark Blue World [DVD] [2002] (DVD)
I saw this film whilst visiting my girlfriend in Prague - the film was easily the most memorable movie that I saw last year.
The variety of languages used did not at all detract from the plot - the initial scenes were sub-titled in English, followed by some scenes where the Germans are taking control of the Czech airbases - but the German language used is quite easy to follow even without the subtitles. But once the Czech pilots had joined the RAF, many of the scenes were in English with Czech subtitles! I speak no Czech and very basic German, but after the movie I really didn't feel that I had watched a foreign language film - instead I felt strangely multilingual! The consistent use of local language whether that be Czech, English or German gives the film a lot of atmosphere and realism.
This is a beautiful, emotive and action-packed film that explores an unusual facet of second world war history. I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone who is in search of an original story line, an exciting new war movie, or who is simply interested in Central/Eastern European culture.
