In one scene, a stationary shot of a German soldier firing a machine gun is intercut with a shot traveling from left to right, showing one soldier after another felled by brutal gunfire. The result is a graphic pattern of alternation—stasis, motion, stasis, motion—that imitates the workings of a machine gun, with its rapid but unbearably systematic motion.
