Storyline

In April 1944, an allied agent is sent to France in order to rescue an "overlord" captured by the Germans. (An "overlord" is one of the few men who know the date and place of the D-Day invasion). To achieve this goal, he will be supported by a secret friend of the Allies, a very important German officer and the French resistance. But the S.S. is not resting.

Gus Lang: We didn't tell them about the decoy run? You mean to tell me we never told Allied Command what we were doing?
Colonel Peters: This was the one that we couldn't leak, not even to Allied Command.
Gus Lang: Hell, Hitler doesn't even need an army with Allied Intelligence on the job!
Colonel Peters: Well,there's a little bit more. Survivors reported that some of the men in the water were picked up by the Germans, and THAT'S why we're in this bloody Jeep driving out to bloody Devon, and we're going to pray every inch of the way that Himmler ...

Spy game with high stakes showing Paris off at her best
22 August 2018 | by clanciaiSee all my reviews

The problem of this film, like of many others of the same kind, is, that the further away in time you get from the second world war, the more the plot and the film must be almost painfully discernible as contrived and artificial. Reconstructing reality must be more difficult and appear less convincing the further in time from the reality exhibited you get.

This is a very good story and very intelligent plot, the actors are all superb, especially Ed Harris, here young and fresh with many great roles ahead of him, and Max von Sydow as the honest German officer. Also Horst Bucholz is doing well like all the others, and of course Eric Stoltz as the prisoner. Helmut Berger adds an appropriate portion of nastiness as a very convincing fanatical German Nazi, in some ways he makes the deepest impression in his radiance of constant extreme but well controlled menace, and Cyrielle Clair provides the necessary female bit.

In spite of the obvious artificial construction of the plot and story, it is well worth seeing and rewarding indeed for those in chase of excitement, and for those who love Paris. It is all filmed in Paris and France.
