Trivia

When Sharpe tells Harris to go home and write a book with lots of shooting in it and he will become a rich man. This is a direct reference to what some of the 95th Soldiers did do after the wars were over, and some did indeed become rich, due to the hero status that riflemen had at the time See more »

Fine addition to excellent series. A candidate for best Sharpe episode.
23 April 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

All of the usual elements of a Sharpe adventure are here: intrigue, in the person of a French spy-catcher and possible traitors within the English ranks; romance, in the form of a mute girl who nurses a wounded Sharpe back to health after a bloody night action; and another terrific battle recreation as Sharpe's riflemen attempt to overrun a french fort outside the town of Villafranca.

The usual cast are superb, as ever, and Michael Cochrane nearly steals the movie as arrogant aristocrat Sir Henry Simmerson. Look for Emily Mortimer as the mute girl.

As usual, the best aspect of the film is its wonderfully authentic period detail and lovely Spanish scenery. Recommended.
