Deeply moving
28 March 2002 | by (Hollywood) – See all my reviews

This film was quite a hit in post-war England as it touched upon an emerging social issue, i.e. whether the German people individually could be held accountable for the crimes of the Nazis. The plot revolves around Frieda, a young German nurse who saves an RAF pilot from a concentration camp. He marries her and takes her home to England where his family (and their community at large) now have to deal with having a German in their midst.

Of course, the film gets off easy on several counts -- Frieda is very pretty which, let's face it, makes it easier for her to be accepted, plus she's obviously a decent person so the dramatic conflict has to come from some contrived suspicions that she may be a Nazi. Some very real dramatic moments emerge in the first half of the film in which Frieda is treated as if she had the plague by the English villagers -- until they eventually warm up to her. A well-made, well-acted human film with a very touching conclusion.
