Letters from the Dead
Northern Italy late 1944. A German Army lieutenant waits for Italian reinforcements. The reinforcements finally arrive, but they are in worse shape than the Germans they are supposed to support. Cooperation between the German and Italian Officer breaks down and the men start to fight amongst themselves. Weary from Allied bombardment and Italian partisans attacking from the woods, the German and Italian Lieutenants have to find a way to work things out, before the enemy does it for them. Filmed on a very low budget this movie proceeds Clint Eastwood's "Letters from Iwo Jima", by looking at the enemy's point of view and showing a war from two sides. See the Allied POV in Ari Taub's other film "The Fallen."
