Viewer Review: "This is one of those old-style painstakingly flawless films – you know, where almost every shot is beautifully composed and it's all directed with a certain dramatic fervor.There's plenty of sweeping shots of thousands of extras battling, charging, or marching through the snow as far as the eye can see. Excellent unflinching air attacks and artillery bombardments sparing us nothing of the constant suffering and loss of life. You really get a great sense of how furious the German high command was and how frustrated they were that the Partisan army could not be knocked out. This film deserves a perfect 10."
