The film is explicit and kind of shocking.

It is a well made film although a dark subject matter. Considering it is based on a true story it indicates just how chaotic things were behind the front line, let alone in the Emsland Camps.

Saw it last night and re-watched some parts for character details. Interesting film. The ending scenes with the credits stumped me if they were staged or if they were the actual reactions of modern day citizens.
Reading the actual experiences of Herold have me thinking a more historical film would be as interesting. Presumably court records still exist to catalog his activities while dressed as a captain.

Terrible film, so many faults and holes in it, I'm kicking myself I did not walk out.
