Not bad but rather slow paced
20 March 2000 | by (West Virginia) – See all my reviews

Overall this is a fairly good movie but it suffers from a rather slow pace. The script should have been "punched-up" a bit so that the story would move faster. There are times when the viewers mind is tempted to wander because of the slow pace. The actors are first rate but deserved better treatment from the script. The scene where a bunch of schoolkids start singing the French National Anthem while Nazi soldiers are storming through their classroom looking for French resisters is so corny as to be painful. But, if you enjoy stories about allied pilots hiding out in occupied territory you will likely enjoy this film.
