One of Paul Schofields most recent films
10 October 2006 | by (london) – See all my reviews

This TV movie recently turned up on Channel 5.I decided to watch it because it starred Paul Schofield who has appeared in relatively few films and none at all for the last 10 years.There are no explanations as to whether this is a true story .It incorporates many of the clichés of the last 20 years namely a bad German,played with great relish by Malcolm McDowell and a good German who aids the villagers in the quest to save the eponymous figures.It does rather stretch credulity as 5 years pass as events unfold and yet the American girl gets no older,physically or mentally,which i believe is a major drawback of this film. Paul Schofield performs a role that could have been undertaken by any elderly actor.If truth be told the film does tell a rather implausible story.
