Outstanding
12 December 2019 | by frederickwiddowsonSee all my reviews

A well-done low-key drama that didn't try to overwhelm the viewer with blood and gore. It still was able to bring home the tragedy and keep the narrative flowing. I recommend it as being as good or better than most war movies and the acting was decent. Very nice score by the guy who gave us Downton Abbey's music, if I am not mistaken. Definitely worth watching in an evening.
