The Scottish Viaduct shown in the first scene is the Glenfinnan viaduct, it has also featured in other films, notably the 'Harry Potter' series where it carries the Hogwart's Express. See more »
In the opening shot of the train crossing the viaduct, the coaches are BR Mk1 ones, which were not built until the 1950's yet the interior shots of the train show LNER on the antimacassar, which would be correct. See more »
It all seemed so simple. We were at war. The Nazis were the enemy. And because good must triumph over evil, so we would triumph over them. How could we have know that war ever trades in such certainty? That we are nothing is unthinkable. Anything could be true. Even a lie.

My wife and I watched this film last night. We both enjoyed it very much. However, I was disappointed to see such a low rating on this website. I think the film is worthy of at least a 7.
I think that several people are missing the point about language. Charlotte did not speak English when she landed; she spoke French. All you have to do is use your imagination. The director obviously chose to use English to avoid having to use subtitles. Besides, acting must be hard enough without having to speak your lines in a foreign language.
Miss Blanchett is high on my list of favourite actors. I thought she played her part exceptionally well. I challenge anyone to say that they were not moved by her displays of emotion. If anyone can recommend any of her other films, I would be grateful.
