War Movies

German occupation during World War 2 changed the Dutch society forever - some people just tried to survive the terror, some joined the resistance and tried to save the Jews from being sent to concentration camps, some joined the Nazi effort to clear the country of any Jewish people. This turned neighbours against each other, people simply stopped to trust each other since the only way to know who your friends is was to put your life in his hands. But there was another group of people, people like Dries Riphagen, who played by their own rules.

While 1960s were rather bad times for American cinema, stuck between disaster movies and musicals, war movies were doing just great, mostly due to Cold War tension and the World War 2 nostalgia.

War Movies

While World War 2 had clearly split countries on two camps - Axis and more or less rest of the world - in cinema it wasn’t that clear, which is hardly surprising. After all not many people would like his own country being depicted as the bad guys, but rarely there were exceptions. The Burmese Harp deals with not World War 2 or heroism of the soldiers, but rather with what happens when the war ends.

The 1960s in America were turbulent times - the assassinations of Martin Luther King and President John F. Kennedy were just small part of the social revolution that was aiming to stop the violence and stop the racial segregation.

Flags of Our Fathers 2006 American war movie

War Movies

The problem with modern American war movies is that either they were made as adventure flicks that had very little to do with reality or they try too hard to be important, to be accurate, to be patriotic and tell the true story from war times. Flags of Our Fathers is unfortunately the shining example of trying too hard.

Soviet invasion on Afghanistan in 1980s was first, but unfortunately not last, modern war that took place in that country and it was a warning for any future plans for the aggressors that the mountainous Afghanistan is one of the worst places to invade unprepared.
