A beautiful combination of historical account and personal drama make this film multidimensional and gripping. I was surprised to hear several people in the audience weeping, though not surprised by their emotions. This is perhaps just one of many historical events that have been forgotten, but embody the character of people in that time and under those conditions. This film should bring a great deal of pride to Canadians who did sacrifice greatly for the freedom of others. People should also be very proud of Paul Gross for creating such a well made movie and gathering together a collection of talented people to portray the supporting characters. I will look forward to Paul Gross's next film.
