"Germany - Pale Mother"

 
"Germany 1939.  Hans and Lene marry the day before the war breaks out, and Hans is sent to the Eastern Front.  During a bombing raid their daughter Anna is born.  The house is destroyed and Lene and Anna moves in with relatives in Berlin.  Hans survives the war but he is not the same person as in 1939, and he and Lene find it difficult to live together again."  This is a great flick that shows the hell of war through the eyes of a German family and it is riveting.  I couldn't find it in English but the German one is below so give it a go if you can.


Worth a watch for sure,
Brian
