Hailed as the German answer to HBO’s Band of Brothers, Generation War is a multi-award winning international success story which is currently wowing audiences here in the UK on BBC Two. Eight years in the making, the mini-series was watched by over 7.5 million viewers when it first aired in Germany last year, and has since gone on to be a hit across Europe and in the USA. To celebrate the DVD and Blu-ray release of the epic Second World War drama this coming Monday (12 May), we have THREE DVD copies of Generation War to give away to our readership, courtesy of our friends at Arrow Films. This is an exclusive competition for our Facebook and Twitter fans, so if you haven’t already, ‘Like’ us at facebook.com/CineVueUK or follow us @CineVue before answering the question below.
Generation War begins in Berlin, 1941, as Hitler stepped up his assault on the Soviet Union. Five friends – soldier Wilhelm, his sensitive younger brother Friedhelm, Charlotte, Viktor and Greta – say their farewells, with the promise to meet again after the war, which they are convinced will be over by Christmas. Little do they know how long it will go on to last, nor how much the unfathomable experiences, deprivations and terrors will change them. It is the experiences of friendship and betrayal, belief and disappointment, illusion and insight, guilt and responsibility, which will change their lives forever. In Berlin, Greta makes a name for herself as a singer, with the help of a high ranking party official. Her Jewish boyfriend Viktor is betrayed and deported to a concentration camp in the east.
Generation War is from the production team behind which critically acclaimed film about Hitler’s last days?
b) The Great Dictator
c) The Rise of Evil
