I saw this film during the 80's on three separate VHS video tapes and I watched it over and over until it went out of circulation. I have been trying (unsuccessfully) to get a copy for the last decade and I hope that now, during the Anniversary year, that it has been re-released. I have no hesitation in recommending this film for viewing and it deserves the "10" that I rated it. Although a French film Michael York is an English actor and the accents and language are easy to understand. The film is a must to see and anyone interested in this period in history must definitely see it. The story is very sad and is a reminder of a period in history that must never be forgotten and never repeated.
Does anyone have a copy or know where I can buy one?
