British Cinema at it's best
30 October 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I recently stumbled upon this film on Channel 4. Thankfully I only missed the first ten minutes as it turned out to be a most enjoyable film.

If you're reading this review then you have most probably seen the movie so a synopsis is not needed.

All I really have to say is that the mainly female cast is absolutely superb. I defy anyone to pick out a single performance that stands out from the rest. Phyllis Calvert, Patricia Roc, Thora Hird..the excellent cast just oozes British actresses who went on to even greater performances.

The only thing that let's this film down are the actors who play the British soldiers. Whilst they are good, I found them maybe a little too old for the parts.

All in all though, it is a splendid film. If a remake were made today, it could boast an amazing cast of todays British talent.

I checked IMDb after watching this film and sadly, most of the cast are with us no more. It is as a tribute to them that I write this little review.
