Jan-Christopher Horak: Jean Oser, who served as editor on Comradeship, recorded audio responses in 1988 for film scholar Hermann Barth. Although the juxtaposed miners tend to blend together as far as characterization, Pabst allows Andree Ducret to standout as the reluctant girlfriend of one of the French miners. Some excellent war-time flashback sequences, wherein a trapped French miner lashes out in violence as the tapping of the metal piping recalls the sound of bullets ripping through the air from his time in the trenches, lends a certain suffocating hopelessness to the narrative, which succeeds as a humanistic treatise against what we’re led to believe are impossible odds. If you can find a copy I recommended it, but still this film pales in comparison to Claude Berri's 1993 adaptation of "Germinal".
