One of the best anti-war movies ever ... it's unusual to see German soldiers portrayed in a human light, much less courageous teenagers who think they are doing the right thing.

a devastating portrayal of enthusiasm for the glories of war, fueled in equal parts by youthful naiveté and political indoctrination, crashing against the realities of human bloodshed

That it is Hitler doing the exploiting has little relevance to the overriding theme of tragic history humanity remains doomed to repeat: sending naive young men--and, at some times and places, boys--to their ends.

... a searing portrait of young soldiers unprepared for the realities of war thanks to the fantasies of Nazi propaganda.

Wicki brings a tremendous sense of confidence to the project, letting the details of life on the home front heighten the tragedy to come.

Director Bernhard Wicki's precise and gripping staging of the final battle brings the tragedy of war sickeningly alive.
