Edgy war drama
- The Bridge review by HM
16 year olds are to defend a bridge so German soldiers can escape the advancing Americans in last days of WWII. Not much use really as once Yanks get to the bridge nobody is going to cross it are they? First half of the film introduces the characters and domestic circumstances, then we move on to the war bits!
The Hitler Youth boys have a hard time doing their duty as relatives try to persuade them to abandon their posts and come home. Tensions grow between the boys as threat approaches. Eventually heroics abound as they fight the on-coming enemy. Reminiscent of Stalingrad the movie really as we are invited to side with them despite the usual Germans are the baddies depiction in most films. Entertaining and plenty of realistic action.
I don't suppose there will be many Germans are the heroes films but this is one of them. Worth a watch for entertainment value
