08/15 The Complete Trilogy DVD
The 08/15, a WW1 German machine gun, was widely used and very unpredictable ... sometimes it worked, most often it did not. During WW2, 08/15 became a German slang expression meaning "standard issue" or more often "F.U.B.AR" or "S.N.A.F.U". A scathing black comedy based on the popular books by Hans Hellmut Kirst, this award-winning film trilogy is a tale of a small group of winners and losers, opportunists and survivors of the German Wehrmacht of WW2. Separately or together, they are nervous, sometimes pathetic, often profane, and always a bit crazy! 08/15 is an anti-war satire of epic proportions. Parts 1, 2 and 3 follow Asch, an idealistic young soldier, from basic training to the end of the war with many unexpected turns in between.
