Glad some folks enjoyed it. I read too much stuff. Some makes it to the brain receptors and some falls right out of the ears.
This one stuck.

I watched part of the film. I will have to be in a different frame of mind to continue this film. So far, it is incredible........however it is also disturbing. VERY real and acting is magnificent! I want to say "THANKS" joint but at the moment, I am digesting what I watched. I know the thanks is coming but the mind right now is mushy..........images of the film.
Wow.

yes, it is absolutely disturbing. i watched it in maybe in age of 18, not like i regret, but unlikely will watch it ever again, some say its same like that war - great but you dont want it again, definitely not popcorn movie, veterans that made it must had been wounded in heads, it unwatchable without appropriate mood, wanted to warn you that viewer discretion is strongly advised, but didnt expect you gonna watch it without watching some review first, sorry smile

Re: Prokhorovka. Interesting read.

joint there is absolutely NO REASON for apology. I am going to sit back and absorb the movie, however like you say, have to be in the right mood for this one. I am thankful you suggested it. I love reading and seeing films about WWII. My Father fought. Make me older than dirt.
Those veterans and actors are incredible what I watched. My better half will NOT watch it with me so its not a popcorn movie. She read "Unbroken" by Laura Hillenbrand, after I read it. That one was too much for her so she will NEVER make it through this movie. More graphic than a book.
THANKS joint. Much.
