The Fallen Photos

Movie Info

With the final days of World War II looming over the greatly weakened Axis powers, German and Italian soldiers face the grim reality of steadily approaching defeat. Leading one such troop of soldiers, German Lt. Gunther (Thomas Pohn), accompanied by Italian Lt. Gianini (Fabio Sartor) and his men, attempt to hold the lines in northern Italy, with divided loyalties tearing them apart. Meanwhile, American Sgt. Malone (John McVay) must deliver supplies to the Allies on the front line.

Critic Reviews for The Fallen

  • War is hell, it maintains -- and though we've heard that before, Taub and his crack international company make us feel it.

    May 11, 2006 | Rating: 3/4
  • You care for these warriors, no matter which uniform they're wearing.

    March 10, 2006 | Rating: 3/4
  • Directed by Ari Taub with a naturalistic style and a nonpartisan eye, The Fallen finds its humanity in the dailiness of a soldier's life.

    March 9, 2006 | Rating: 3.5/5
  • This multiethnic, polyglot war epic successfully marries its grand ambitions to a minuscule budget.

  • The photography and period detailing are excellent, and Taub, who displays real feeling for the innocent bystanders of war, finds the occasional small, surprising moment.

  • Italian locations, strong acting in three different languages, and sharply written snapshots of individual soldiers from all four sides of the conflict add up to a multifaceted close-up of daily life on the lines.

Audience Reviews for The Fallen

  • Jan 25, 2008
    A squad of German soldiers is reinforced by the Italians in the final days of the war in the face of certain defeat by the advancing allies. The version of this film I saw was re-edited, removing the majority of the American involvement and renamed "The Final Sacrifice". For some reason. It's an interesting take on the WWII film focussing on the soldiers on the ground and their day to day lives as they bicker, reminisce and basically do what anyone else would do if they were stuck in muddy hole for days on end. Its multi-cultural aspect is the most interesting in that it shows the relationship between the Germans and their Italian "allies" who are treated as second class citizens and torn between a soldier's duty and loyalty to their conquered country. In a lot of ways it's more like a soap opera set during a war than a "war film" as such but thanks to solid writing and strong performances the characters and their relationships are completely believable and it engages through to a poignant ending. A story about ordinary people stuck in an extraordinary situation, The Final Sacrifice wisely avoids politics (let's face it, Nazis are hardly the most sympathetic protagonists) and concentrates on those caught in the middle of events bigger than themselves. A man can have the right motivations and be a "hero", even if his superiors have not.
