Confusing and really bad film
15 June 2001 | by (los angeles) – See all my reviews

A strange and confusing film that goes thru four time periods of wars in England's history. Very dull and boring as you try to figure out the whole point of the film. It actually starts out well when the husband returns from WWII after a long five years. How things have changed in those five years. Suddenly the star of the film, Anna Neagle bumps into a wall and now we start time travel with Neagle as the only constant. This is the kind of movie that you fast forward alot.
