Goofs

When Berger enters the camp in the borrowed car wearing the borrowed uniform, just before the MP raises the barrier, Berger wears sunglasses. The next shot, from the side, shows him in the car rolling through the gate without glasses. The next shot shows him front again, with the glasses back on. See more »

Love this movie
30 December 2020 | by kssw-28291See all my reviews

I watch this at least once a year. What I've come to realize that this is a love story - not between Claude and Sheila - but between Berger and Claude, although I don't think Claude realizes it until it's too late. Next time you watch it, keep it in mind. It deepens the emotional impact of the incredible ending.
