This movie is up there with countless others as great Nazi Germany/www2 movies. It's so heartfelt and beautiful that I was crying buckets throughout the whole thing. It feels like an Invasion of the Body Snatchers, except it really happened. Robert Sean Leonard is one of the most brilliant actors in the world, even though he's highly under-rated. Esspecially check out the dance scenes, unlike other swing movies, this one seems far less choreographed and pre-planned, it gives the film spontaneity. My favorite scene though is at the end when Willy's saying good-bye to Peter screaming "Swing Heil, Peter! Swing Heil!" I just lost it.
So for the love of God, please see this movie which is staggering in brilliance. It's super-mergentroid!
