A road movie - 2 old men (and hitchhiker) revisit their WWII memories., 13 December 2009
Author: purplexs2-607-122895 from Australia

Albert (deceased) is one of 3 British WWII vets, whose 2 remaining friends honour his wish to be buried at the site of their shared wartime experience, in Germany.

It's classification as a comedy is inadequate. It's gently mocking tone evokes smiles rather than laughter, and it's sentimentality gradually builds to show troubling memories shared by the 2 aged vets, which their bemused hitchhiker tries to soothe.

The use of artifice is restrained, cinematography and soundtrack are plain but effective, and the downbeat dialogue and acting suits the story.

The languid pace of this film may deter some, but it richly rewards those viewers who watch it in full: this is a film of rare beauty and power.
