The false army that Faber finds in this film is based on historical fact. Germany knew that the D-Day invasion (known as Operation Overlord) was coming, that it was likely to be in early June, and even that the likely points of attack were Normandy and the Pas de Calais. Operation Fortitude was designed to convince the Germans that the Allies' major strength would be focused on attacking Calais, so that most of the German forces would be defending that spot instead of Normandy. It worked so well that, even after June 6, the Germans kept many forces stationed at Calais, in anticipation of a second wave attack there. See more »

Sutherland was never darker or slicker, Kate Nelligan was never more heroic or attractive, and the outcome of World War Two was never so thoroughly in doubt. Suspenseful all the way, this movie convinces us that the Allied-Axis struggle was determined by the violent, romantic interplay among five people on a storm-tossed British isle. See it!
