Storyline

Set in a German theatre after the Second World War, two British soldiers are holding a disparate and hostile band of refugees (displaced persons) in this theatre, prior to returning them to their homelands. The soldiers have difficulty dealing with the rivalries between Serb and Croat, resistance fighter and collaborator, Pole and Russian, etc. The threat of plague briefly unites them, but eventually even this wears off and the refugees unite in their hostility to the British.

The 26 Year Old Richard Attenborough
17 November 2003 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

There was an honesty and an integrity in the way that Dickie Attenborough portrayed his role in this film. He demonstrated that he could capture a character well and bring him to life in a film. He was certainly developing as an actor by this stage in his career.
