I was rather upset when I received it, I did not remember putting it in my Queue at Blockbuster, but I watched it anyway. First to warn you: it is about 2 hrs and 45 min and is subtitled (German language-English subtitles)...BUT OMG! The movie was incredible. It is the true story of Harry Melchior a German grand champion swiimer who escaped into West Berlin in 1961 and spent a year building a tunnel with the help of some friends to get out his sister and other friends and family. SO GOOD. I was bawling by the end of the movie. So well written and acted. I was drawn into the stories of each of the tunnel diggers and their families. The woman trying to get her fiance. The man whose pregnant wife was captured and imprisoned. The son trying to get his elderly mother. AWESOME. I highly recommend this film to anyone interested remotely in historical films or foreign films!
