Storyline

In the middle of World War II, in turbulent 1942, the fearless Wing Commander, Max Vatan, lands on the desert dunes of Morocco to meet with the skilful Parisian member of the French Resistance, Marianne Beauséjour. After a suicide mission in the heart of Casablanca, Max and Marianne will flee to England with plans on making a family; however, heavy clouds of distrust and suspicion will burden their relationship, when Max receives a shocking call from the Secret Service Division. In disbelief, with a terrible task in his hands and crushed under a devastating dilemma, Max must find the courage to seek for answers in the perilous streets of a bombarded London, regardless of the outcome. In the end, amid duty and love, who shall live and who shall die? Written by Nick Riganas

Quotes

Max Vatan: What are you doing?
Marianne Beausejour: [blouse unbuttoned] Testing you. The way you tested me. I know you're armed with a weapon, Mr. Vatan, I'm just checking your safety catches and range.
Max Vatan: [chuckles]
Marianne Beausejour: There, we had our first fight. Now we're okay then, yes?
Max Vatan: Marianne, we both know people fucked each other, and they fucked up, but now they're fucking dead.
Marianne Beausejour: Well, that's a lot of fucks.
Max Vatan: Button yourself back up.
Marianne Beausejour: [buttoning her blouse] Actually, Max, mistakes make people in these situations isn't fucking. It's a feeling.

Really wanted to like it
3 December 2016 | by jasontheterribleSee all my reviews

This is the kind of film I go in to with a very forgiving attitude. Historical dramas are among my top choices and it was fantastic watching two of my all-time favorite stars trying to play multi-layered characters and doing pretty good. Then Zemeckis decided to add coke heads and other modern Hollywood projections in scenes of WW2 Britain. Not only was the language, behavior and attitude not historically accurate, it was so distracting and unnecessary in a period piece. Beautiful cinematography and set pieces and a good story all ruined by a need to desecrate old, traditional behavior and values. And by the way, people in the 40's rarely said F but here it was in every sentence. Sad and disappointing.
