Strange Title For An Effective Little Movie
6 September 2003 | by (NY, NY) – See all my reviews

The flag-waving toward the end gets a little too intense. Considering the time, though, it makes sense.

People on their way to work reminisce about how they end up at a munitions factory. Margo is very convincing as an emigre French chanteuse. It works really well, all told, and is touching and engrossing.
