Bet he's still spending the royalty checks for "Eidelweis".

I vote for "The Producers" (the original version) Then the Germans can do a dance number to "Springtime for Hitler"

Finally got around yo watching all of this. That's some cracking footage there Gordon :good: really highlights what a perfect match the site is for the Sevastopol area!
“I wanted to come to the Volga at a specific location at a specific city. By chance it carries the name of Stalin himself. So don’t think I marched there for this reason – it could carry another name – but because there is a very important goal... this goal I wanted to take – and you know – we are very modest, we have it already."
Adolf Hitler, November 1942

"Comrades, Red Army men, commanders and political workers, men and women guerrillas! It is on your perseverance, staunchness, fighting skill and readiness to discharge your duty to the country that the defeat of the German-fascist army and the liberation of the Soviet land from the Hitlerite invaders depend! We can and must clear the Soviet land of Hitlerite vermin."
Joseph Stalin, November 1942

We gave up half way through "Come and See". It was just too relentlessly depressing and downright weird. How about "Red Star" I think it's called, about the usual 5 man elite squad (yawn) behind German lines. It was actually really good, but our LoveFilm disk was dodgy and we never got to see the end. No spoilers please.

Yes, The Star is quite good, if a little stylised.

I think it is worth slogging through to end, there are some beautiful images in amongst the slaughter and mayhem, although the Einsatzgruppen chaps and chappess in particular are disgusting and disturbing in equal measure, certainly not as enticing as Amon Goethe. It isn't entirely depressing all the way through, certainly not at the end.

Having just seen "Fortress of War", I'd suggest that for you guys. A story of heroic Soviet defenders under siege from the German hordes? Sounds perfect. It's also a VERY good film.

I haven't seen it yet... but, whilst there was lots of Soviet suffering depicted... let's not forget that Brest-Litovsk is in the middle of Poland, which they had invaded! :roll:

Actually these days it is in Belarus. The place has changed hands more times than Jordan has had boyfriends. Plus it was captured by the Germans not the Soviets in 1939 and then handed over- so they actually had to take it twice. :slap:

The right or wrong of the Soviet troops being there doesn't diminish what those inside went through holding the place, or the quality of the film to my mind. Does the actions of the British empire in Africa stop you from watching Zulu? Or the Japanese in the Pacific stop you from appreciating Letters from Iwo Jima? Well ok Iwo Jima was their territory but hopefully you get the point.
