Red Baron trailer
The trailer for the film The Red Baron has arrived, although it's the German dubbed version for the moment, the film still looks interesting with the flying sequences looking stunningly real.
The film stars Matthias Schweighöfer, Til Schweiger, Lena Headey and Joseph Fiennes and tells the story of Baron Manfred von Richthofen, the most feared pilot of the German air force during World War I.
To him and his friends being a fighter pilot is something to be proud of, and they carry great honour for each other and their enemies. However he falls in love with a nurse and begins to have his eyes opened to the propaganda around him and how he is being used in the war. Soon he finds that his previous love for the war has gone, but he's torn between his honour and duty, and his new love and beliefs.
The Red Baron sounds interesting, although I am concerned that there's a lot more romantic moments than actual concentration on the Red Baron and his exploits. I wonder if this is going to turn away from the factual knowledge of his air exploits and turn into a simple love story?
