A British Masterpiece.
13 February 2003 | by (London) – See all my reviews

`It Happened Here' Directed by Kevin Brownlow and Andrew Mollo is a Classic of British Cinema. The Film is remarkable in its authenticity, given the fictional scenario, the invasion of Britain by the Nazis during World War Two.

The look of the Picture is very raw and earthy which adds to its realistic style.

The German soldiers look perfect, I say this because it is so rare that Directors make such a concerted effort for perfection.

Andrew Mollo and Kevin Brownlow are two of the most talented and unrecognized Directors in Britain. This Film is an example of the best of British Independent Film making and should be seen.
