Storyline

Mike, the co-pilot of a US, England-based World War II bomber, is injured aboard. Although an almost complete recovery is likely, the loss of his 'manhood' drives him to suicide. For Mike's skipper, captain David, a gentle, well-educated Pittsburgh virgin, this seems a wake up-call that he must start his sexual life. After a ghastly failure with one on the airbase's women, David goes AWOL. The he bumps into even shyer, charming English barmaid Jean. She not only hides him from the MP's, but falls in love with the handsome officer even more desperately. Written by KGF Vissers

Anxiety unbound in Furie's smartly scripted piece.
1 October 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

During One Night is written and directed by Sidney J. Furie and stars Don Borisenko & Susan Hampshire. Story tells of a soldier (Borisenko) who after seeing his friend suffer castration during an accident, takes leave from his unit to lose his virginity. But upon meeting Jean (Hampshire) his ideals and fears are turned in another direction.

A little unknown piece that occasionally shows up on British TV in the early hours of the morning, During One Night is far better than any plot synopsis suggests. It's a very tender movie, one that is impeccably acted by Borisenko & Hampshire. Very much dialogue driven, it finds two people confronting issues that affect them psychologically. Brought together by chance, they each have to go deep into themselves to hopefully reap the benefits. Will they make it? What does life have in store for them? Thankfully we do care what happens to this couple because it's so well written. For those willing to give their undivided time and attention to a human interest piece then this is certainly recommended. 7/10
