“Generation War”…

is a German drama. In German it’s title is “Unsere Mütter, Unsere Väter” The 3-part series shows the life around Nazi Germany and WW II
I recommend it with “fifteen out of ten”
It comes in three parts, each 1,5 hours.

I have been discussing the movie with Michael for a day because it has moved us both. I wish there was a book written, but there isn´t. There are simply so many questions that arose in my head- why did he do that? Why did she do that? What are they thinking? What are their excuses? In a book all the emotions and thoughts make characters way more transparent. While it is sometimes interesting to make use of your own imagination and think for yourself of the why´s and the how´s, with this movie (from this genre) it would be useful to have a better insight into characters thoughts.

Michael thinks they could have displayed more of what the Red Army was doing behind the lines- the truthful actions of theirs.

I found myself thinking- people turned into animals.. sorry, beasts, because it would be an insult to animals… and for what? For who? What a waste of life, brilliant young minds that were mashed by bullets and gruesome sights.

    Aga metsistumine? Eks meil, kes me selles košmaaris mitu aastat ei elanud, ongi raske nende inimeste muutumist mõista.
