Hi guys!
For those of you who have been looking for some kind of "Band of Brothers" series for the Germans, I'll like to show you a tiny trailer from "Unsere mütter, unsere väter".
It's not the "Band of Brothers" which you would think of. But you follow two German brothers into the early war until the end of the war.

It's worth taking a look!


The trailer speaks for itself.

I'll have to have a gander at that. The acting seemed pretty good.

Seems I may have to have sex with darkest nation while razor sprays us with whipped cream. But thats fine.

CANNES - Theatrical distributor Music Box Films has picked up U.S. rights to Generation War, an acclaimed German-language TV series billed as a German equivalent to HBO's Band of Brothers, from sales group Beta Film.

Music Box is planning a platform theatrical bow for the six-hour
Generation War in selected U.S. cities, to be followed by a roll out on VOD, home video and TV. Music Box has experience with handling international series, having scored successes with the U.S. bow of the Swedish Millennium crime trilogy, released as three feature films and a six-part TV series as well as the original Swedish version of the Henning Mankell proceduralWallander.

Hopefully this results in it being sold on Amazon or shown on HBO or Netflix.

For the record, I am not going to say that I support downloading this stuff for free, but it seems very hard to find it elsewere!

Sorry guys. As much as we all want to see this film, we can't post links to torrents on the company website / forums. - JBG Forum Moderator

I would really like to see it on Netflix, though haveing it in box edition would be sweeter!

The acting seemed pretty good.

Was pretty good. I wanted more combat scenes, though.

Some news for you guys across the pond. Ok, it's a month old, but it's new nonetheless.

BBC2 to air acclaimed German drama series Generation War


A second world war drama dubbed a "German Band of Brothers" that sparked a national debate in Germany about ordinary people's role in the conflict has been bought by the BBC.

Generation War follows the lives of five young German friends between 1941 and 1945 and was watched by record audiences of more than 7 million viewers when it aired on German broadcaster ZDF.

The three-part drama was described by Der Spiegel as a "turning point in German television", featuring explicit scenes of violence traditionally shied away from in German TV depictions of the war.

The BBC's head of programme acquisition Sue Deeks said the programme had a "truly epic sweep".

Nice, they're playing it on BBC2 soon. I'm definitely recording that and forcing everyone I know to watch it.

Wow,
I just watched the french version.
And I need to say, it's one of the best fiction war movie/serie I've seen so far.
Great, excellent! The end is a bit fast tho. I wish I would have seen a 4th episode to soften the end.
Also, the Bataillon 500 isn't depicted in my reading as my little historical reading.

I just saw the first episode and must say that I was hugely dissappointed.
Reason being that the trailer gave me so differend expectations.

I thought this would be about war, but there was only one good (but short) battle scene, and after that it was 50% love story and 80% about jews suffering (not kidding).
I kind of feared this after knowing that germans had made this series.
It is shame that you cannot just tell straight war story about soldiers without love, drama and politics messed up with it...

Well, I'm looking forward to see the two more episodes, maybe it turns into war series after all...

Saw this thread, thought "wow a German war movie nowadays?!" and was disappointed. I also had that feeling they would've lamed it up and digressed from the war with "love" and "never4getdasixmil"...

I want something thats just war, the internal and external, not this rehashed sort of war story.

The Pacific did the same thing as well with all the focus on the home front. Honestly I liked UMUV, but it's still a stretch from a good company level war story like BoB.

Second episode was much better than the first one.
Although it still was mostly about holocaust, there was more combat scenes and better story telling overall.
Pretty ridiculous that one of the soldiers took a rifle shot next to his heart and after a surgery was acting like nothing had happened (strutting around with no visible pain) couple days later...

Edit: about the third episode...

Basically it was all about polish resistance and jews suffering again.
Russians were portrayed as liberators and they were saing things such as: "how are we going to build new Germany?". :rolleyes:

And when the famous raping was about to start by russian soldiers a woman officer walks in and says: "We are russian soldiers, liberators not rapists".
I laughed out so loud! rofl
All in all, this might've been the most anti-German movie/series I've ever seen in my life.
Except I don't know that should this be called a war film, since it was mostly about other things but not about the actual fighting...
Way to go! :thumb:
