Die Brücke

Bernhard Wicki Bondsrepubliek Duitsland, 1959

Log Lady's rating of the film The Bridge

Like All Quiet on the Western Front (which I love as well!), but less sentimental, and in a lot of ways more brutal. I feel like I got to know the boys, so caring about their fate made everything all the more hardhitting. Excellent cinematography and amazing performances. The glee of a successful shot, and the desperation and fear when you realize you're in hell. An absolute gem, and from an often neglected POV.
