Superb suspense film, unique 'thought' dialogue
1 October 2002 | by (England) – See all my reviews



Superb film with no actual spoken dialogue which enhances the level of suspense. The whole approach gives a completely different twist to a war film.

Well worth watching again if only it could be found. I saw it perhaps 20 or so years ago. - Fantastic!
