Critic Reviews for The Bridge (Die Brücke)
Director Bernhard Wicki's precise and gripping staging of the final battle brings the tragedy of war sickeningly alive.
One of the most confrontational war movies of its time. An act of profound audacity.
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.
Audience Reviews for The Bridge (Die Brücke)
A really great and interesting view of the war. I really connected with the kids and found myself pleading that the Americans would'nt come over the bridge, even though I'm British. A heartfelt story or the useless war losses.
