Excellent, very memorable movie
12 July 2014 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

An excellent movie. I first saw it long, long ago on television, it stuck in my mind, and in the years that followed I often thought of it and wanted very much to see it again. But I could not remember its title or any of the actors who starred in it, so could not find it on IMDb.

After long searching all over the Internet, using all sorts of keywords, and following many wrong trails, I finally stumbled across a site where someone like me had wondered what it was called and someone else put a name to it: A Flame to the Phoenix. At last!

Then, again after much searching, I found that it had been put on DVD, albeit not by anyone major, and the transfer was not of the very highest quality. But the prize is now in my library. And it is even better than I remembered.

It is an excellent evocation of Poland in 1939 before Hitler invented an excuse to rip its heart out and the Second World War began. A fine cast, mainly sterling British actors, do an excellent job.
