Unforgetable Musics in Unforgetable Movies /11

Lili Marleen
Director: Rainer Werner Fassbinder
Main actress: Hanna Schygulla (Lale Andersen)
Theme song: Lili Marleen from a poem by Hans Leip "Lied eines jungen Wachpostens" (1915)
Music by Rudolf Zink.

Amazing true story of a song which, beyond the stupidity and abomination of the 2nd World War, became an hymn on both sides, all over Europe and further, for all those hoping absurdity will end soon.

Eventually, right after the war, Marlene Dietrich will record her version which remains the most known and probably the best one.

Goosebumbs garanteed or get out of humanity..

90-year-old man recounts a remarkable experience he had in WWII.
