In the early years of the 20th Century, two British yachtsmen (Michael York and Simon MacCorkindale) stumble upon a German plot to invade the east coast of England in a flotilla of specially designed barges. They set out to thwart this terrible scheme, but must outwit not only the cream of the German Navy, but the feared Kaiser Wilhelm himself.Written by

This must be one of my favourite films. It is so beautifully made and features a wonderful cast. Simon MacCorkindale is really great alongside Michael York who always puts is a great performance. Jenny Agutter is so beautiful and works so well beside the two male leads. This film captures the whole period very well and is a real boys own adventure sort of film. Alan Badel is great as Dollman as is Olga Dowe as his cranky wife Frau Dollman. She is the perfect foil for the beautiful Agutter. The baddies in this film are really great. What a shame we don't see more performances from Juergen Andersen, Michael Sheard, Hans Meyer and Wolf Kahler. I particularly like the scene where Michael York is in town having his breakfast. It is delightful and sums up his stiff upper lip Englishness. The village where he breakfasts is also truly delightful. Don't miss the beautiful scene on the beach with Agutter either. Do see it as you will enjoy the journey if you like romantic adventure films. It is beautiful.
