While I think I should totally give Saving Private Ryan and Band of Brothers a shot, I also kinda wanna get a "German Perspective" thing going. Here's a bit of a list. Not sure where I could find the movies yet. Wouldn't wanna buy the DVDs, though, becasue I'd run the chance of it being like with Dresden - no English dub and all in German. SO ANNOYING. I hate subtitles - I end up reading the entire time instead of watching the movie :/ Anyway...

The Edelweiss Pirates
The Boy in the Striped Pajamas
The Downfall of Berlin: Anonyma
Swing Kids
Enemy at the Gates

I heard that last one has pretty major historical inaccuracy issues though. But, still, a Soviet-Germany stand off that's not entirely from the Russian/Soviet perspective? Yes, please :)

I would recommend these:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Die_Weiße_Rose_(film)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Max_(film)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Tin_Drum_(film)

Prolly there are others but these spring to mind.

I liked Band of Brothers, even if it was American. My uncle was at Stalingrad. He walked back to Germany. I've never wanted to watch Enemy at the Gates because I have heard there are historical inaccuracies.

Do you have any WWI recs? I'm doing WWI for a big project.
