Poignantly conveys the pain of war.
18 May 2000 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

Made during the second world war when people were really suffering the pain (not just remembering it), this low budget simple tale of high ideals and patriotism is more powerful than many a later battlefield re-enactment. A tense commando operation is blended with touching personal scenes such as a mother and son meeting in occupied territory but too afraid to recognize each other. All combine to bring home the horrors and heroism of the wartime experience in a way that truly tugs the heart strings. Listen for the musical score by famous English composer Ralph Vaughan Williams.
