Ballade vom kleinen Soldaten

Werner Herzog, Denis Reichle West Germany, 1984

misgenc's rating of the film Ballad of the Little Soldier

This documentary manages to capture the innocence of the kids so well. Even brainwashed, we see how childish and happy they are and they don't even know what fighting is actually going to be like.
