Storyline

McCallum plays a WWII German special agent assigned to take out a team of Titov resistance fighters in Yugoslavia. He locates their leader in a camp within a ravine in the dead of winter. However, the leader's code name beliest that the resistance is being led by a resourceful young woman. After McCallum captures her, a heavy blizzard strikes the ravine, forcing him to take shelter with her in her cabin. The storms seals them away from the war, and they develop an attraction for one another. Eventually, the weather clears and he must make a decision: to take her prisoner or to turn her loose. He decides on the latter. Dressed in their snow camoflage, they each depart along separate sides of the ravine... Written by Anonymous

interesting twist on familiar theme
20 February 2000 | by rover-9See all my reviews

I guess this movie is not to everyone's liking but if you are a David McCallum fan you will enjoy it. It is a love story with a different twist. It has been a long time since I first saw this movie on TV and no one seems willing to air it again. Also,it is not currently on video which is a shame. I would very much like to view it again.
