User Reviews

 
Entertaining but not of any spoiler alert
24 January 2021 | by patrick-180-667941See all my reviews

Entertaining but we know right from the start that the horrible plans of the nasty Germans will be foiled.

Anachronistic in several aspects: antisemitism was not something rare, neither was racism or even eugenics in the Anglo-Saxon world. So why all the terrified looks and thrilling music when we discover this. Neither was listening to German radio for German girls in an Anglo-German school.
