A pretty good yarn

A very pleasing war movie from UK, written by Brian Clemens - the famous screen writer already guilty of dozens of thrillers and TV shows such as THE AVENGERS - and produced by the Dantzigers Borthers. And there are many films from him I don't know about, as you can guess. This one gives us an interesting point of view, about a British pilot who, during WW2, is parachuted in occupied France and has to get help from the natives, the french resistance. And that's where it becomes interesting. Some of the people accept to help him, and the others refuse. Because they want to remain in peace with the German troops.

Characters are well described, for such a B movie, a very short one, only 57mn. And the ending is somewhere predictable, but not so either. Predictable for someone like me who have seen thousands of films, I mean...

The final shootout may remind us a western, in a small Texas or Arizona town.

A very good picture I highly recommend.

Directed by the very prolific Monty Tully.
