Excellent adaption of Waugh's novel
18 September 2001 | by (Kgs. Lyngby, Denmark) – See all my reviews

This is an excellent screen-adaption of one of British author Evelyn Waugh's most entertaining books. A young man (played very well by Michael Maloney) who writes a weekly newspaper column about British rural life from his family estate, is mistaken for a war correspondent by confused subeditor (Denholm Elliot) and is sent to the suspected action site of Ishmaelia somewhere in Africa. On his journey he meets an elusive man of mystery (Herbert Lom), a stunning German blonde (Renee Soutendijk) an insane Swede and various other strange characters. And nobody seems to know exactly where the war is... Having read the book as well, I must say that this movie adaption resembles the book very well - I don't think Mr. Waugh could have hoped for more.
