A very different type of war or in this case, anti-war movie. Effective plane crash at the beginning, I wonder if this is where the current TV series 'Lost' got some of its insperation. This is a cleverly written piece, with the similarities between sides and the appreciation of command and position brilliantly observed. I think Frank Sinatra was hugely underrated as a movie star. However, I found him disappointing here. Sure, he can play a drunk with his eyes shut, but the doctor is a complex and excellent potential character role that we never saw explored. Sinatra looked as if his mind was elsewhere and probably as director, it was and his character was totally unbelievable. This is not to distract from an original, well acted and in truth, touching piece that has a very strong message to deliver.
