Average wartime motion picture with large cast and spectacular landscapes
The film talks upon a Basque shepherd (Anthony Quinn) whose assignment results to be the leading a family (James Mason , Patricia Neal , Kay Lenz and Clemens) through the Pyrenees mountains (France) until Spain . But they are relentlessly pursued by an evil Nazi officer (Malcolm McDowell) .
The movie is set in Second War World when Hitler invaded France and ruled the collaborating government from Vichy under command of general Petain .
In the flick there are shocks , action , thriller , shootouts , drama and deal of violence and tortures in charge of Malcolm McDowell .
Acceptable acting with all-star-cast . Anthony Quinn and James Mason are good and give nice performances ; also Christopher Lee acting as an agreeable gypsy , changing his usual villain role .
Malcolm McDowell's interpretation is overblown , he plays as an evil , sadist , wry and murderer Gestapo officer .
The final confrontation between the starring family , the Basque and the Nazis across the snowy landscapes is breathtaking .
The flick was regularly directed by J. Lee Thompson .
The yarn will appeal to suspense , emotions enthusiasts and WWII buffs .
Rating : 5.5/10 , mediocre .
