The German - A Short Film

The Complementary Spouse's uncle sent me this yesterday. Given that the Oscars are tonight, I thought the timing was appropriate.

It is a short film featuring aerial combat between an RAF Spitfire and a German ME-109 during WWII. What makes this film so unique is the surprise ending. That and the attention to detail including the Webley revolver and the SMLE rifles.

The short film is approximately 10 minutes long. If you want to know more about the movie and how it was made go here.

  1. The story was awesome.

    And I'd love to see them remake The Battle of Britain with the special effects. At least on a PC the arial combat looked real.

  2. Looks like Ireland is trying to paint over their despicable treatment of Irish vets after WW2. Most don't know that Irish soldiers were blacklisted and discriminated against when they returned home.
