Synopsis

A small Ukrainian village is attacked by the Nazi as part of the German invasion. Erich von Stroheim, a brutal German doctor takes the children of the village and uses them to transfer blood from them to wounded German soldiers. As the children start dying, the villagers organize an attack.

Our take

A pro-Soviet Goldwyn production, Lewis Milestone’s Oscar-nominated invasion drama is truly one-of-a-kind: a song-filled war film set in a besieged Ukrainian farming village inhabited by Anne Baxter, Dana Andrews, and Walter Huston. With cinematography by James Wong Howe and music by Aaron Copeland!
