This was actually a good movie. It shows the brutality of the "rescuing" Russians and testosterone gone wildly out of control in their assault on women and their own selfishness. Subtitles were good and although it could seem long like one reviewer mentioned, I think time depicts its own sorrow, loneliness, desperation and waiting that the characters feel and express in time of war and its desolation.

Way too long. the Russians were savages just like the Germans. Did a lot of pauses and rewind with closed captions. War is hell.

Excellent portrayal of the German experience of defeat at the hands of the USSR in 1945. Savagery to match the USSR defeat at the hands of Germany only a matter of months earlier.

Based on memoir of the same title. Some of the women were raped so many times, they made cynical jokes about it.

Women in defeated countries always end up as sexual toys of the conquering armies. Possibly less so in modern times. But the German defeat in the East would be the profound exception. Along with everywhere else in WWII.
