a wonderful film and one of the finest of sirk's career. even john gavin can't spoil it. a rare look at world war 2 from the german soldier's point of view. sirk's own son died a soldier on the russian front after he was forced to leave him behind in germany so this was an extremely personal project for.
So, when I saw "A Time to Love and a Time to Die" at a used book store, I was excited to read it. I had hoped that "A Time" would live up to the high standards of "All Quiet". I was not disappointed. A Time" is arguably an even better novel than "All Quiet". Now, the allies had taken to bombing the town, and the bombing raids brought the horror of war home to Germany. But even worse than the bombing raids, the Nazi party had turned neighbor against neighbor and brother against brother, until nobody could speak openly about anything. It seems that the Nazis destroyed Germany once, and the allies destroyed the country a second time. Ernst returns home to find his family home destroyed and his family missing. While he's in town he runs into Elizabeth, a young woman whom he had known in school but had never given a thought to before.

This is the last time. We were born to die. Мы были рождены, чтобы умереть. Come take a walk on the wild side. Давай дадим волю чувствам, не думая о последствиях, Let me kiss you hard in the pouring rain. Sometimes love is not enough. Порой любви недостаточно, And the road gets tough.
