Did You Know?


The tanks depicted rolling on the wheat field are German Pz III Ausf D, which are correct to the date, but alongside with them are some StuG III Ausf G tank destroyers, which were not produced until late 1942, more than two years after the events of the invasion of France. Though could seem that two years are not relevant, the StuG III are at least three generations more advanced that the early tanks available in 1940 so this would be similar to show machine guns in the American Revolutionary War or modern F-117 or F-22 fighters in Vietnam War, as examples.

A Beautiful and moving film
3 October 2019 | by chessiebarbara-67260See all my reviews

This is a beautifully done film with an excellent script well acted with characters you come to care about and take to your heart, especially the father and little boy who desperately try to reunite after being separated during the War. Matthew Rhys is perfect as the gutsy British commander who has lost his entire battalion but stays to fight another day, knowing full well he may not survive.

Ennio Morricone's score is inspiring an perfect for the terrors and longings in the film. Bravo to the director, writers, actors and all involved. A film like this seldom comes along. But thank heavens it did and cheers to Cohen Media for making it available.

With sub-titles and a serious theme, it's not a money-maker, alas, not a slasher nor a horror nor an action film to bring in money, but we are grateful it got made. We have need for films like this.
