Based on a true occurrence, THE BAREFOOT BATTALION tells the story of a group of young people who fought in the Greek Resistance during WW II. The kids steal from the Germans in order to finance their exploits and to help the poor. This film is a tribute to the pluckiness of the teens and

tots who made up Greece's youth battalion during those dark days. Regrettably, the technical aspects of the film are so dismal that any interest in this inspiring story will be dulled. But if you can get past the look of the film, you cannot fail to be touched by the story. Just two of the

children who appear are professional actors, and director/editor Tallas has coaxed heartrending performances from one and all.
