Die Brücke (The Bridge)
Bernhard Wicki's directorial debut, this is an excellent little film with little plot and no known names on the roster. In the final days of World War II, German teenagers join the Nazi army in a futile attempt to stop the enemy invasion. A sympathetic officer places the boys as guards of a seemingly unimportant bridge. The seven youths are thrown into battle when American tanks unexpectedly appear and try to cross the bridge. The film has a definite anti-war message. ~ Dan Pavlides, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Director Bernhard Wicki's precise and gripping staging of the final battle brings the tragedy of war sickeningly alive."
