Excellent movie

This is an amazing movie. There is some nudity and some language. I think that it was well put together and shows what happens sometimes during WWII.
age 18+

Reality of the effects of WW2 never discussed

The reality of what happens after war it's really sad the effects on people and the stereotypical judgement . The depression no one talks about this it's really important because war goes on for years after it's finished physically. noine ever talks about what it does to society we needed world war II happen because the Germans would not stop . It affected more than one country so many people the hate-filled anger they had was horrible

This title has:

Too much sex
