The brutal depiction of war in this film totally traumatised me when I watched it as a child - I was perhaps 6 years old... The scenes of the bombing, the sorrow, and the devastating last image of the survivors walking alone on the road.
My parents and all the people were mourning the loss of our country. I should watch it again and readjust my feeling regarding it.
A rare film.
