An excellent film that is really not just a war film nor just a romance film. This is definitely one for anyone's movie library who loves quality drama/romance/war films! Superb acting and story!
Plot: In 1944, a company of German soldiers on the Russian front are numbed by the horrors and hardships of war when Private Ernst Graeber's long awaited furlough comes through. Back home in Germany, he finds his home bombed. While hopelessly searching for his parents, he meets lovely Elizabeth Kruse, daughter of a political prisoner; together they try to wrest sanity and survival from a world full of hatred.
The dvd is encoded REGION 0(PLAYABLE WORLDWIDE).
Excellent remaster on dvd! Plus a strong subject, played and with scenario dialogues, very true for the dark cruel events of WW II, - all enveloped in mixed romanced story. A must for my collection.
