Should win the Oscar for most multilingual film
5 December 2000 | by See all my reviews

An intelligent script overcomes any shortcomings of a reasonably formulaic story, that of a soldier captured by the enemy, who subsequently falls in love. Any film that is said to be based on a true story deserves a degree of harsh scrutiny, as many of this genre are obviously overpadded. This film's strengths come from the sensitive acting and portrayals by a good cast, helped though if you have a knowledge of the Welsh language. Bewilderingly, five different languages feature in this film - Welsh (predominantly), English, French, German and Polish. I don't think there are too many linguists fluent in all these languages, mercifully we are saved by subtitling
