Storyline

Amos and Cyril are a pair of British veterans from WWII, going back to Normandy 50 years after D-Day to visit an old buddy's grave. There, they run into Waldo, an American WWII vet. And both Waldo and Cyril run into a French woman they were both enamored of in their soldiering days and begin squabbling over her. Waldo's son and daughter-in-law are putting up with him and each other. And the entire group meet up with a woman who has come to visit the grave of her brother. Together, they form an odd camaraderie, bound by the past as they share their memories Written by Kathy Li

From tears of hilarity to tears of pathos
17 September 1999 | by (Miami Florida) – See all my reviews

A truly beautiful little film. The acting is English, restrained and pure character. It starts as a comedy with delightful badinage between the American and English World War II vets. The dialog is sharp, incisive. You think this will be just another clever amusing story. Then, in the second half, we are catapulted into one of the saddest stories as the details of their pasts and the tragedies of war are gently revealed.

Do not expect guns, bodies and fights - but do expect tears. This film has remained etched in my memory for years.
