During World War II, tug boats conduct what are called salvage missions - picking up disabled ships. Not well equipped with weaponry, the tugs are sitting ducks for enemy fire. As such, the crew working the tugs have precarious lives, many with deep seated emotional problems.

Chris currently shares a flat with a young beautiful Italian-Swiss woman named Stella, who came with the flat and who lives a reclusive life there.

little-known film with interesting and original topic.
Little known but interesting and original in its theme film combines action and romance. Hopelessness, fear and courage to overcome them are common to all the characters in the film, they both try to cope war as his own inner battle. All this takes place without prejudice as bombings of action at sea, ships on fire ...-. The only failure the film is at its end, something rushed, and could have developed better.
It is a little-known film by the general public, has a stellar roster, W.Holden, S.Loren, T.Howard and direction of British Carol Reed ("The Third Man"). It is quite interesting, is not pleased that his long-term becomes too heavy.
It should be noted at a very young Sophia Loren meets well with your paper giving life to a beautiful woman at the sea tragedy is leaving the one after another without lovers.
W.Holden gives replica playing a captain of a tug boat offshore torpedoed by the Germans, who tries to assist with risk involved.
In the third level we have Trevor Howard and also some wisdom we briefly explore the presence of Michael Caine. I think the biggest flaw of the film is that halfway remains what we want to become, torn between the romantic drama, intrigue and mystery ... and finally the military action.
To conclude an interesting film, which seems somewhat forgotten and Sure liked the stalwarts of the Italian star.
