When An Guardian Angel Brave Woman Saves Many Lives in Times of War
28 March 2004 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In Second World War, the English Countess Mary Lindell (Judy Davis) and former Red-Cross nurse in the First World War lives in France with her son Maurice Lindell (Christien Anholt) and her daughter Barbe Lindell (Kate Beckinsale). When she sees the Major James Leggatt (Sam Neil) wounded and wandering in an occupied Paris, she does not hesitate to risk her life to save him from the Germans. This is the beginning of her support to the Allies (specially British and American soldiers) in France, helping them to escape to Spain. This true story has a powerful performance of Judy Davis in the role of a splendid woman. Mary Lindell, as presented in the film, was the guardian angel of many soldiers, saving many lives along the war. Unfortunately this is a television movie, otherwise Judy Davis should have deserved to be Oscar nominee, having such a performance. A great movie, recommended for all audiences. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): `Correndo Contra o Vento' (`Running Against the Wind')
