Nach der Landung in der Normandie starteten die sieggewohnten Allierten im September 1994 die Operation "Market Garden". Ihr gewagter Plan sah vor, den 2. Weltkrieg durch einen raschen Vorstoß ins industrielle Herz Deutschlands in kurzer Zeit zu beenden. Doch eine Kombination aus kriegspolitischen Querelen, ungenügender Aufklärung, Pech und schlechtem Wetter führten zu einem Desaster. "Die Brücke von Arnheim" ist die epische Verfilmung eines tragischen Fehlschlags. Sie schildert die Ausführung eines ehrgeizigen Plans, dessen Scheitern mehr allierten Soldaten das Leben kostete, als die Invasion in der Normandie. Mit einem bemerkenswerten Staraufgebot, historisch exakt und an den Originalschauplätzen verfilmt, verdeutlicht der Film, wie gewaltig die Chancen, aber auch die Gefahren waren, die hinter einem der größten militärischen Wagnisse der Geschichte steckten.

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com (ISBN 0792839730, DVD)

This massive 1977 adaptation by director Richard Attenborough (Gandhi) of Cornelius Ryan's novel features an all-star cast in an epic rendering of a daring but ultimately disastrous raid behind enemy lines in Holland during the Second World War. A lengthy and exhaustive look at the mechanics of warfare and the price and futility of war, the film is almost too large for its aims but manages to be both picaresque and affecting, particularly in the performance of James Caan. The impressive cast includes Robert Redford, Gene Hackman, Anthony Hopkins, Laurence Olivier, Dirk Bogarde, Sean Connery, and Liv Ullmann among others. While not a classic war film, it nevertheless manages to be a consistently interesting and exciting adventure. --Robert Lane
