The plot of this film concerns a British Army Officer being court- martialled for the murder of a fellow officer on a WW2 battlefield. It is told in flashback through the eyes of witnesses and the accused himself. There is a good script and the acting is never less than acceptable. What lets the film down is the very low budget. At first it's hard to tell when this court martial is taking place as the hairstyles of the servicemen and the hairstyle and clothes of the sole female star seem to suggest the 1960's rather than the 40's. The budget is also a problem when it comes to battle scenes. An attempt has been made to combine archive and newly shot footage which is totally unconvincing and just looks cheap. Overall the film has the look of a TV episode. Despite the above I found this film held my attention throughout it's brief running time and there is a good twist in the tale at the end. I intend watching it a second time which is some kind of recommendation, although I think that the charity shop will be it's ultimate destination.
