Kino International in Berlin/Germany - "Die Abenteuer des Werner Holt" 1965

Die Abenteuer des Werner Holt / The Adventures of Werner Holt  is a 1965 East German film directed by Joachim Kunert. The script was based on Dieter Noll's 1960 published novel Die Abenteuer des Werner Holt (Part 1).
The plot: Werner Holt (Klaus-Peter Thiele), a young Wehrmacht soldier stationed on the eastern border of Germany in the last days of World War II, is awaiting the attack of the Red Army and he recalls the last two years of his life.
The movie released on 5 February 1965, and it is still today cited as one of the most notable films that, using a modernist style, challenged the traditional East German anti-Fascist narrative by introducing a more personal perspective to the theme.
