Banned with Just Cause?

Given the reaction of this film’s extras, then Germany’s ban on pro-Nazi propaganda still might be a good idea, as reported in the Times yesterday:

“About 700 extras turned up early yesterday morning. One was Volker Behrens, who had driven 500 miles to be there. He had brought his own coal scuttle helmet and wartime overcoat. “It was worth it,” he said, “I just love the uniforms.”

The making of the film has given many the chance to perform illegal acts. “Where else in Germany can you shout ‘Heil Hitler’ at the top of your voice?” said one extra.”
