    Unique telling of WWII. Haven’t seen the story told quite like this and from an Estonian perspective. The cinematography is great, and the story well written. Worth a watch!

    Starts off more like a WW1 movie and a little bit boring the action while serviceable is one step away from the amount of gore really needed. One problem I also had is that a lot of the actors kind of look the same, so when they start dropping like flies it's hard to remember who was who. What the movie does pull off well is a twist halfway through where the main character is killed off and a POV shift occurs to the other side of the same battle where we finish the second half of the movie with. So the movie does do a decent job illustrating how Estonians got screwed over by both sides. So entertaining and solemn enough for a watch.

    This Film is an Documentary/Drama of ESTONIA historical events from 1944 on which you can see a WW2 scenario but on reality is story of friends fighting both sides to avoid been kill by the other.

    It was one of those few movies that shows the perspectives of the not only the both sides but soldiers and civilians that are trapped in the war that is not theirs...

    Estonian movie of action / drama movie about the role of the Estonian military population on WWII - the country had it enroled by two oposing forces, first the soviets then the nazis. The story tells the tale of two regiments, one fighting under each country army, in a central core story (very well written). Excellent action scens and photography, good actings. Shame on many Hollywood produtions that don't have this quality and realism. 8,0 / 10,0

    11/4/16 You Tube Another war is hell movie with a twist and an interesting historical background. This Estonian film is well acted, well shot with realistic battle scenes and accurate arms, planes and armor. Well worth trying to track down and watch.

    Bom filme sobre a segunda guerra mundial que separou a Estônia. Uns lutavam por Hitler, outros pela união soviética. Volta e meia eles se encontravam no campo de batalha e eram obrigados a tirar a vida de seus próprios conterrâneos.
