Conclusion: Set in the bleak, featureless landscape of Holland in the waning days of the Nazi occupation, this tells of a young boy who chances upon a downed RAF pilot and tries to help him escape. It has its moments of drama but is slightly hampered by a young lead who is hard to empathise with and a pilot who's even more so. It certainly looks the part with its wintry snowscapes but ultimately we come away feeling as cold as the characters clearly do.
Summary: While a little one-dimensional this is, nonetheless, a satisfying movie which captures its period very well (one of our members is a 70-year-old Dutchman who was living in Holland at the time this movie is set). Some great acting and stunning winter scenery flesh the movie out.
