A blend of wartime action, drama, comedy and romance.
22 September 2001 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

This otherwise routine propaganda piece, intended to lift spirits during the war, is redeemed by its focus on the personal effects of war. We can sympathize with the tough moral choices faced by the occupied French population, while we still have time for a laugh and a languid kiss before getting on with the serious business of outwitting the Nazis.
