| It's Hard to Forget This Movie
Of all the WWII movies I watched as a child, this one made the deepest impression. In fact, I suffered through bad dreams afterward, but I'm not sorry I saw it. Since I haven't had the opportunity to view it as an adult, this is not so much a review as a testimonial to the power of the film. The message that stayed with me: Children can be heroes too. Fighting for one's country may cost your life, but it's worth it. I remember the film as shot in grainy black and white, almost like a newsreel. It felt real because we knew what actually had happened in Stalingrad, as the Russians, defending their city, fought the invaders house to house. Some scenes were shockingly brutal--Nazis shooting a child in the stomach comes to mind. But it was a story about courage that I will never forget.
