The Bridge

  • 1959

  • War

Boy soldiers stationed at an unimportant bridge end up defending it to the death, with the exception of one who escapes. Flawless first directing job from Wicki along with surprisingly good performances from no-name actors. Nominated by the Motion Picture Academy for Best Foreign-Language Film for 1959 (it lost to BLACK ORPHEUS).
