To make a corridor look longer than it actually was, the crew created an optical illusion by putting a mirror in a 45° angle at the end of it. At the Bavaria Filmstudios, where the movie has been filmed, you can still take a guided tour around the set. The effect with the mirror was so good that one day a tour guide ran into the glass and broke it. See more »

I was fortunate to come across this wonderful movie in the late 1980s and have since viewed it a few times. It has always been on my list of favorites. Although I now feel it may have dragged a bit, the combination of special effects, fine performances and the poignant message it sends, makes this film worth seeing. For parents, this is a movie that instead of focusing on blood and guts and the misguided lesson that blowing up people is something to cheer about, teaches that learning to love your enemy is the finest reward.
