Storyline

Based on actual accounts, this film portrays the days and hours before and during the invasion of the Falkland Islands by Argentina, which eventually lead to the Falklands War. As the Argentine forces land on the main island and make their way towards Government House, the British Royal Marines batten down the hatches and prepare to defend Governer Rex Hunt, his family and their fellow islanders from the invaders.

21 September 2002 | by (skegness, lincolnshire) – See all my reviews

this film was simply awesome, it captured the shock and surprise of what happened superbly. the cast were fantastic too. however, im disappointed that as far as im aware it has only been screened once, i have tried every avenue possible to track this film on video or dvd. it must exist somewhere, if it does could you tell me where please, or of any plans for future release or showing. i would love to see it again, even better own a copy,

yours hopefully dino angeloni.
