In September 1942, the German Afrika Korps under Rommel have successfully pushed the Allies back into Egypt. A counter-attack is planned, for which the fuel dumps at Tobruk are a critical impediment. In order to aid the attack, a group of British commandos and German Jews make their way undercover through 800 miles of desert, to destroy the fuel dumps starving the Germans of fuel.
September 1942 - With Erwin Rommel's Afrika Korps on the march through Egypt, a British special forces unit, composed of German Jews who serve with the British despite the mutual resentment between both, kidnap a Canadian officer who is an expert topographer and who is held prisoner by the Vichy French in Algeria. The officer, Donald Craig, must negotiate a company of British and German-Jewish commandos through 800 miles of the Sahara to aide a pending amphibious landing against Tobruk's massive fuel storage base - a mission that sees one impediment after another, and which discovers an undetected German armored force ready to win the battle of Egypt. .

(nl) wrote: Bakski created an animated work of art of his urban schema.The film follows Michael Corleone through a psychological odyssey of a rough New York, propelled by, as an artist, his own imagination and interpretation.The visually complex film derives its story from Michael's twisting of his real-life; his cartoon and "real" worlds are intertwined. He gives a portrait of his dysfunctional family, inserting black comedy and commenting on the bizarre characters of the underbelly of the city throughout the film. This is the essential and most effective force in the narrative: the interaction between Michael and his girlfriend Carole and the people in their lives they become dissident towards. For example, Angie, Michael's Italian father, resents his dating a black woman, and puts a contract on his son. Michael's need to escape such overwhelming pressures and assert himself sexually is the driving force throughout the story.This makes the story compelling, as we learn to dislike the characters, but in their exaggeratedness find them novel and funny. The moral disconnect here and the many undercurrent conflicts, (like the conflict of Michael's parents in their guiding their son) disorient the viewer but provide an ample amount of thought-provoking messages, many of them subliminal in the visuals.The look of the film is tremendous, perfectly capturing a grubby city, but also giving a stylized verve to the characters. The direction of animation succeeds also in using obtuse compositions to make the environments have certain effects.Because of the racial and violent content, the film might seem repugnant, but it is an uplifting, completely compelling experience that is completely distinct and demands more than one viewing to fully comprehend. The issues cannot be magnified to seem overly relevant or original and the story is not profound, but as stressed before, there is a demand of art direction and character that makes the film stay in a crazy kaleidoscope of urban commotion and devious activity. Therefore, the experience and overall effect are hard to forget.
(it) wrote: Not a favourite Godard film here. Sure - highly original, cerebral work that demands significant research and a literate background to get all the references. Also a film with the usual Godard touches. The film is generally about society's descent into a new, ugly Paris - and the inhabitants who too fall into a new, ugly and empty life. The film shows us a Paris inhabited by the noise of construction and cars. References to many authors, particularly to Brecht, abound. To a Godard fan, this film will be considered a masterpiece. However, to the casual viewer 2 or 3 Things may be more of a tedious film and I might argue Godard could have certainly made it a little more entertaining and a little more "watchable" - it is tough to watch a film when many of the references Godard is making are just lost. Perhaps it would have made more sense at the time it was made? Nevertheless, a unique, important - and challenging - work that is certainly worth watching.

(mx) wrote: It's Woody Allen at his quirky best. A fantastic dark comedy, just loved Joaquin in the leading role. I was worried after the snooze-fest Magic in the Moonlight that Woody didn't have another great film in him but at 80 years old he has produced another corker. Fans of his warped humour should love it.
