Average User Score: 7.9Jan 20, 2014I just absolutely love this mini-series and how the story line conveyed was just magnificent! When I heard about Unsere Mütter, unsere Väter,I just absolutely love this mini-series and how the story line conveyed was just magnificent! When I heard about Unsere Mütter, unsere Väter, I thought it would be like the German version of the Band of Brothers; in the perspective of the German Wehrmacht fighting with their 'band of brothers' in wars like Op. Barbarossa and in France but it was completely something else, something deep. Although it does show some perspective of the war through the Wehrmacht soldiers (just like Maj. Winters, Nixon, etc. in Band of Brothers), this focused on the lives of 5 friends, which 2 of them shares experiences of their life in the 'homefront' and what is happening in Germany itself; not entirely focused on the war effort. I cannot say much without giving too much spoilers (which is all of what I was going to say after this); you just have to watch it. I do not know whether this "Generation War" move is condensed or made shorten, I'm not sure because I don't want to watch it because I've watch the original. But if the critics gave this an average score based on the cut version or condensed version to fit into the theater, they should watch the miniseries.
Btw, Katharina Schüttler's song "Mein kleines Herz" is excellent and very deep and sad! I just had to buy the song after I heard it.… Expand
