Basic Story: Follows the nine day assault on Brest Fortress by the Nazis in June 1941.
Fan Thoughts: The story is told through the eyes of a child in the army band, who witnesses all nine days of the attack and ultimately escapes to tell the story of what happened. It starts out well, but drags through the second half by getting bogged down in the prolonged fighting. It ties up at the end quickly and neatly after moving so slowly. The film quality is good and the action sequences are well done, just needs a bit of a trim around the middle to keep it engaging the whole time. Overall its not bad to have on in the background!
Warnings: typical war movie violence, implied rape
