| Good Historical movie...
"El Alamein - The Line of Fire"; war movie of 2002, directed by Enzo Monteleone and based on the true testimonies of the Italian veterans of the Africa campaign, during the Second World War. The movie shows the various aspects of trench life, with which, the soldiers of the division: "Pavia" had to "fight", such as: hunger, thirst, heat, lack of reinforcements and ammunition, the sense of abandonment and frustration. One aspect that I really appreciated in this movie is the fact that the plot focuses on the lives of soldiers and not on fascism and its politics. However, there are some flaws about special effects and some combat scenes, but all in all they are negligible errors. This movie is great for those who are passionate about history and for those who do not know the story of Italian soldiers during the Africa campaign. I recommend you look at it, see you and see you next review.
