War movies are all the rage again, so I'm just being fashionable...
Although set towards the end of World War II, this is very different from other recent offerings from that period. The action takes place in a German POW camp. A privileged young officer, the son of a senator, is denied access to the officer's bungalow, and sent to sleep with the ordinary soldiers. Things start to get really ugly when two black officers arrive, and are also denied access to the officer's bungalow. One sergeant is particulary racist, and before long, is discovered murdered, with one of the black officers standing over him. Since our senator's son was a law student, he is assigned to defend the alleged murderer at the court martial. Although it looks as if the outcome has been predetermined, there is a surprise in store... |
