I actually already saw this movie but since it was maybe 20 years ago, I was quite eager to check it out again. To be honest, the only things I really remembered was the fact that there was this weird little boy and that the whole thing really had fascinated me at the time. Well, eventually, it must be one of the weirdest WWII dramas I have ever seen. I mean, half of it was a rather straightforwar... read more
