I recommend this movie for sure, watching carefully
25 November 2016 | by svoboda_kSee all my reviews

First of all I do not understand why this film, is well worth watching, no the higher rate? The film I first watched nearly 30 years ago, and then at me, just like recently, when I watched it again, left a strong, a good impression. Screenplay, photography, directed (by Alan Bridges) as well as the protagonist of the film acting as a totality worthy of higher ratings the spectators.

The theme itself, a moral attitude peacemaker Henry Buchanan (who plays excellent David Warner) and its environment, and that before World War II, is such that it is always on it can be discussed.

The film correctly develop the story of the relationship of the new environment, a small town in Canada, and the man who is for conscientious objection suffered a many inconveniences in life. He had to even move from his native England in distant Canada, in the hope that there will come across a better understanding of of his attitude about the war.

This film contains sufficient, the exact number needed dialogues of his protagonists. In the best manner of I. Bergman where practically no: the emotions visible on the faces of the characters, grimaces, gesticulations etc. with what is otherwise unnecessarily overcrowded most of the movies!
