The Young Lions


The destiny of three soldiers during World War II. The German officer Christian Diestl approves less and less of the war. Jewish-American Noah Ackerman deals with antisemitism at home and in the army while entertainer Michael Whiteacre transforms from playboy to hero.

The Young Lions is a piece of a really strong cinema. This movie literally has no weak scenes and no weak moments throughout the whole movie. I sat in the cinema for a long time after the end of the screening of The Young Lions, reflecting on my thoughts, and returned home in a calm and meditative mood. The Young Lions is a revelation in the cinema. It is an unbelievably vivid picture in which it cooks up from the subtexts, emotions and hidden pursuits. There is not a single thing wrong with that movie. It sets the 10/10 standard for every other movies in existence for me. The sum of detail and small things of the movie that you can long time later is really amazing. Althought The Young Lions is very underrated movie.... Show more
