The trailer has been released for upcoming Netflix film Blood & Gold, a fun and bloody-looking WWII action-comedy from Germany.
The film is set in the final days of the Second World War and tell the story of German deserter Heinrich (played by Robert Maaser, Barbarians), young and courageous farmer Elsa (Marie Hacke) – and a whole host of Nazis. On his way home from the front to his daughter, Heinrich stumbles into the clutches of a marauding SS troop. Their leader (Alexander Scheer, Blood Red Sky) leaves him hanging in a tree. But he is saved at the last minute by Elsa, who hides him on her farm. Meanwhile, the SS is searching for a Jewish treasure hidden in a nearby village, meeting bitter resistance from the fed-up villagers, who want to keep the treasure for themselves. Soon, Heinrich and Elsa are unwillingly dragged into this action-packed hunt for the gold, culminating in a bloody showdown at the village church.
This one comes from director Peter Thorwarth, who previously directed Netflix’s vampires and terrorists on a plane flick, 2021’s Blood Red Sky. The screenplay was penned by Stefan Barth (Cologne P.D.).
Watch out for Blood & Gold, being released on Netflix on May 26th.
