The German TV mini-series “Generation War,” now presented as a feature film in the USA, follows five friends from 1941 through WWII.  Although the film has received mostly favorable reviews, some critics balked, describing it as a continuation of “the self-deceiving lie” that the average German was a victim of Nazi rule, a “work of apologia” or a film projecting a “strange queasy zone between naturalism and nostalgia.”
