  • Italian POWs are billeted on the Black Isle during 1943 - They are lusty and virile and one of them falls for the wife of a local farmer. Luckily, he is an cold and uncaring sort of guy, and so roamnce and blossoming occurs. Sadly.local girl is raped by POW, at same time heroine is with her boy - he has no alibi, unless she provides one - she does, with logically trgic consequences. Subtle film, beautifully shot and hinting at the same sort of power of land of Sunset Song. Very much worth a look - especially for the extra giving the worst display of onscreen cigarette smoking ever seen - that was me!!!
