The following is a direct translation of the German review of this film:

A stolen hen is the "corpus delicti" in this military farce, which takes place in occupied France during the Second World War.  A film, which is not only disqualified as a work of art by its crude and vulgar humor, but also by is trivialization of the Nazi war.

To the reviewer:  Don't hold back!  Tell us what you really think!  A little too soon after the War, huh?  Admittedly, when first viewing this film before processing it, I was shocked to see a comedy with actors wearing what appeared to be Wehrmacht uniforms only ten years after the end of the war.  Surely, they must have been Bundeswehr outfits; but no, they weren't.  Folks, if even *I* think something is tasteless, it must really be bad.

Ein gestohlener Hahn ist das "corpus delicti" in einer Militärposse, die während des Zweiten Weltkriegs im besetzten Frankreich spielt. Ein Film, der sich nicht nur durch platte, ordinäre Komik disqualifiziert, sondern auch durch seine Verharmlosung des Nazikriegs.

DVD-R is in German with no subtitles.  Approx. 89 mins.  See film samples for audio and video quality!
