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 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.

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

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