Trivia

The end credits indicate that this film was based on the book 'No Drums ... No Trumpets' by Barry Wynne, and that Mary Lindell, its subject, won her second Croix de Guerre from the French government for her activities during World War II. Lindell had also received one for her actions with the French Red Cross during World War I. The statement also says that she represents one of the extraordinary escape stories of World War II.

Quotes

Countess Mary Lindell: I don't know if you realize what it's like - bailing out in a foreign country, occupied by the enemy, not knowing anything, and suddenly being handed over to someone and thinking, "Oh, God, it's a woman! This is dreadful, isn't it?". Yet suddenly they felt safe. I love the whole lot of them. They were too sweet - too ridiculous, most of them. And I never even knew their names.

Whatever I have to be.

"One Against the Wind" is an American production filmed in Luxembourg that takes place in France, stars an Australian and a New Zealander playing British citizens, and is acted almost totally in English. So, as you might imagine, authenticity is not a major strong point here. The editing also isn't quite up to standard. Scenes often move quickly from one to another, possibly to fit within a forced running time for airing. If time was such a concern, it might have been preferable to remove some scenes altogether to get a little more more breathing room. But, in spite of merely adequate TV movie standards and unimpressive direction, the script and the actors help to make it quite a good film.

Judy Davis is the real meat and guts that holds it all together. She creates a driven, tough and gritty character. It's a welcome change from all her late-career neurotic personalities, which frankly aren't very interesting. She is wholly convincing, as always, but this time as someone you can really connect with, identify with. I'm not disappointed I watched this.
