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

The best tribute to those who fought in WWII
15 March 2000 | by (Aberdeen, Scotland) – See all my reviews

Probably the greatest tribute to those who died and those who survived, touching on the aspects of loyalty and camaraderie. A great tribute, and perhaps the best way to see WWII veterans as they were

  • ordinary men doing an extraordinary job.

Probably the greatest film I've ever seen, with an excellent cast who compliment each other extremely well.
