Fabrik der Offiziere by Frank Wisbar( Visual )

9 editions published between 1960 and 2011 in German and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Kriminalfall in einer deutschen Offiziersschule während des Zweiten Weltkriegs: Ein Nazi-Fähnrich, der mit einem absichtlich herbeigeführten Unfall seinen Vorgesetzten getötet hat, wird überführt, jedoch von der Gestapo gedeckt. Die Bemühungen eines idealistischen Oberleutnants scheitern tragisch. Regisseur Wisbar ("Hunde, wollt ihr ewig leben") liefert nach der Vorlage von Bestseller-Autor Kirst ("08/15") ein durchaus respektables Widerstandsdrama, das über dem Durchschnitt der westdeutschen Filme liegt, die sich in jenen Jahren mit dem Nationalsozialismus befaßten, obwohl es mit einigen zeittypischen Mängeln behaftet ist: Die Rollen von "Gut" und "Böse" sind allzu eindeutig verteilt; die Rebellion des aufrechten Offiziers ist rein individuell bestimmt, der Weg zu einer politischen Moral (und damit zu einem kritischen Geschichtsbewußtsein) wird nicht aufgezeigt. Eindrucksvoll das Kinodebüt von Helmut Griem. [film-dienst]
