Storyline

Brady is an airman shot down during World War II over the Hungarian Plateau who is hidden by the local people. They are ranchers, occupied by the Germans who speak very little English, thus most of the film is communicated by action. Brady and a boy from the village try to go by horseback across country and avoid the German patrols long enough to reach neutral territory. Written by John Vogel <jlvogel@comcast.net>

If viewed as other than a war flick, it was good.
20 June 1999 | by (Port Charlotte, Florida) – See all my reviews

I heartily disagree with the evaluation of the movie as boring. It was, in my humble opinion, a movie which inadvertently became a wonderful horse story. From the opening scene to the very end, I was entranced with the bonding of the horse and rider. The movie may have been intended to be a war time adventure, but in the eyes of someone who rides and enjoys a solid relationship with her own mount, it was a very moving story. I enjoyed this movie tremendously and have recommended it to many other horse people who have watched it and enjoyed it as much as I did.
