Audience Reviews for A Time to Love and a Time to Die


a wonderful film and one of the finest of sirk's career. even john gavin can't spoil it. a rare look at world war 2 from the german soldier's point of view. sirk's own son died a soldier on the russian front after he was forced to leave him behind in germany so this was an extremely personal project for him
