PG-13 | | Action, Adventure, Biography
German biopic loosely based on the World War I fighter ace Manfred Von Richthofen, nicknamed the Red Baron by friend and foe alike.
Although this is a movie made in Germany it was actually spoken by all performers in the English language. This surprises many viewers who think it was originally spoken in German and dubbed into English later. However the developers were interested more in reaching the widest audience possible. They felt that the German viewership would be minimal and so it turned out. It is an interesting fact that even English actors in the movie such as Lena Headey who played a German nurse acted with a light German accent! Ms Headey will be remembered for her later starring role in Game of Thrones. She was born in Bermuda her father being British and stationed there at the time

Kaiser Wilhelm II did not speak English with a German accent; his mother was Queen Victoria's daughter who was also King Edward VII's older sister, and he spoke English like a member of the British Royal family, which he was. However, as most of his dialogue in this film is "translated" from German, his German accent may have been the producers' way of representing that fact.
