Originally released as The Battle of the Neretva, this sprawling epic is a tribute to the Yugoslav partisan fighters of World War II. Yul Brynner stars as a guerilla leader whose mission in life is to eradicate all Nazis from his homeland (recently revealed instances of Yugoslav collaboration are dispensed with in this uncomplicated actioner). Hardy Kruger costars as Brynner's principle German antagonist. Originally released at 175 minutes, this $12 million spectacular was ruthlessly whittled

The most expensive Yugoslavian production of its day ($12 million) and an Oscar nominee for Best Foreign-Language Film.
Despite being mauled in the editing suite, this remains a fine war movie and a powerful reminder that WWII was fought on many fronts.
