Storyline

Nice film
8 June 2017 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

Vera Lynn was a wonderful singer with a beautiful voice, with some great songs under her belt, her most famous being "We'll Meet Again". Named after that song, 'We'll Meet Again' is her film debut in her first of her five films.

While not a great film, it is worth seeing for fans of Lynn. 'We'll Meet Again' is not the most visually or technically accomplished film, and the story structurally and sometimes momentum wise isn't the best, occasionally a little heavy-handed.

It is however well worth watching for Lynn, essentially playing herself but doing so with enormous charm. She is well supported by irreverent turns from Frederick Leister and Betty Jardine and a moving one from Brefni O'Rorke.

The music is lovely and makes great use of Lynn's wonderful voice. The script is fun, sweet and charming and some of the pacing is sprightly enough, the film assuredly directed.

Overall, a nice film. 8/10 Bethany Cox
