Audience Reviews for The Battle of the Rails (Bataille du rail)

  • Jan 11, 2018
    Featuring dramatic recreations, "La Bataille du Rail" is a highly suspenseful ode to the heroics of the railroad workers of France during the Nazi occupation. While most passengers had their passports checked by officials crossing the border, others were smuggled right under the Nazis' noses. First and foremost, sabotage was the main occupation of the railroad resistance, slowing down or downright wrecking the Nazi war effort. At first, the Germans said that they were all on the same side which of course nobody believed. So, firing squads were set up, shown in one expertly crafted scene that eschews the hyperrealistic approach of the rest of the film. Still, the sabotage continued, especially after the cat was out of the bag with D-Day.
