Audience Reviews for Sutjeska (The Fifth Offensive)


I have a film by the same name (not this one) made with Richard Burton, a Serbian release in 2007 of a movie made in the seventies or sixties. The actors RT mentions in their synopis is not the same as this film, but the plot is the same. It could very well be the same movie but RT messed up. No english spoken nor subtitles, we can only imagine the storyline. Not being able to understand the language made this difficult to watch. As a result, a boderline fresh as it was made professionally in every way. Action takes place during WWII in 1943. Concerns a battle for Sutjeska against the Germans. The former Yogoslavia commissioned the movie and paid quite a price for its making. Great for Serbian RT fans, the rest of us must lip read. The rating is purely a guess.
