If you're looking for WW2 movies, this is a choice
Great german war movie. Sort of an "All quiet on the western front" except in WW2 and the eastern front rather than WW1.
Good war movie, better in realism than American made war movies
Good movie. I like how they told it from the German perspective.
Surprisingly enjoyable, with a good ending.
Super film et surtout solidement réalisé. Ça fonctionne bien !
The Nazis were humans like you and me. And while that might be difficult to take in, that's what makes humans so dangerous.
Haunting. Captured the horror of Stalingrad well.
Dark, gritty, brutal. Interesting take on Stalingrad battle from the German perspective. Very good.
A WWII classic. Must watch!
In April of 1945, Germany stands at the brink of defeat with the Russian Army closing in from the east and the Allied Expeditionary Force attacking from the west. In Berlin, capital of the Third Reich, Adolf Hitler proclaims that Germany will still achieve victory and orders his generals and advisers to fight to the last man. When the end finally does come, and Hitler lies dead by his own hand, what is left of his military must find a way to end the killing that is the Battle of Berlin, and lay down their arms in surrender.

A drug cartel boss is arrested in a raid and coerced into betraying his former accomplices as part of an undercover operation.
A ticking-clock thriller following Winston Churchill in the 24 hours before D-Day.
Shot in documentary style from the perspective of an almost alien observer, the film is an exploration of the ravaged oil fields of post-Gulf War Kuwait. An effective companion to his earlier film Fata Morgana, Herzog again perceives the desert as a landscape with its own voice, as he glides over seas of oil, geyser-like infernos, monstrous smoke plumes and ashen roadways. With musical accompaniment by Wagner, Prokofiev and Pärt to boot, he observes the soot-covered creatures allured by the blaze.
In the Nazi-occupied Netherlands during World War II, a Jewish singer infiltrates the regional Gestapo headquarters for the Dutch resistance.
