WHAT A MOVIE GUYS! I just watched The Bombardment on netflix, and due to a communication error in an allied forces air strike, the target that would be the Gestapo HQ turned out to be a French school. I’M FINISHED. It’s a movie to think about in the present day. pic.twitter.com/dV0pQlkIUC

I watched the bombing on netflix just now, about an error in an air attack by the allied forces that were supposed to bomb a gestapo HQ and hit a school killing 120 people being 86 children, what a painful movie, it has its flaws in a certain plot, but that agony and what a pain

‘The Bombardment’ (Netflix, 2021), by Ole Bornedal, would be a poetic and cruel film at any time in the history of human stupidity, but the chance of its release at this moment makes it unmissable to understand the drama of childhood lost amid the barbarity of adults. pic.twitter.com/EZUVOUdPhe

I started watching the movie “The Bombardment” (Netflix) for the plot related to World War II and, right away, a pleasant surprise: Alex Høgh Andersen, better known as Ivar the Boneless, from Vikings.
