Honnecker's SED regime must have loved this!
4 January 2006 | by Josef_SchweikSee all my reviews

Think "Dances with Wolves" but with a ton of ideological overtones added by the East German communist regime. The movie has an average plot but nice sets and sceneries, shot most likely in Yugoslavia (?). I saw this movie sometime in 1975 or 76, growing up in Czechoslovakia. I remember it being quite boring - even for a 10 year old who wanted to see every cowboy-and-Indian movie in sight. This movie has since all but disappeared - and it is no loss.

After his immigration to East Germany, "Red Dean" was used as a poster child for every propaganda campaign the government could think of, mainly in music and movies. Even Dr. Goebbels would have been amazed.
