This WW2 psychological drama plays out at Christmas. US GIs hold an isolated cabin in the Ardennes against a handful of Germans cut off from their main force. Combat-weary and short of rations, both sides are determined to survive.
Set in 1944 France, in the Ardennes forest region, an American Intelligence Squad locates a German platoon wishing to surrender rather than die in Germany's final war offensive. The two groups of men, isolated from the war at present, put aside their differences and share a Christmas celebration. The surrender plan includes a mock battle that turns bad when one of the soldiers is unaware of the surrender plan.Written by

Filming took place during the coldest winter in Utah in 83 years. The temperature dropped about thirty degrees during the night, when much of the action takes place. See more »
I'm not exactly sure what country we're in. Could be Belgium, Luxembourg, France, or even Germany. I don't know what day it is. I have no watch, so I don't know what time it is. I'm not even sure of my name. The next thing you know, they'll be making me a general.

I thought this movie was good. I throughly enjoyed it. I like the story and I like the craft. I like the cast and thought they did a perfect job. The characters could not have been better. If you see it on the big screen, you may be more pleased with it than you would on the small one.
