Goofs

The protagonist, a Brit, uses a Russian Mosin-Nagant military rifle he would have been unable to obtain at the time. It may have been used as a stand-in for the similarly looking British Lee-Metford rifle, a likely choice to equip someone in his position. See more »

Really nice flick
10 February 2018 | by denisemichelle-18990See all my reviews

Overall great story, unique plot, great acting, and a beautiful location in this film to boot. I initially thought this film was about space aliens according to the poster but I was quite wrong and pleasantly surprised it wasn't. I'd say this is a movie somewhat like The Shape of Water but this story kept my attention unlike that film. Just a nice change of pace for a different story line and if you come across this film, I highly recommend it.
