I picked this up at the library yesterday and we watched it last night. The film is losely based on actual events that occured in the days just before the Allied invasion of France. Any film that honors the courage of the French Resistance is usually a film I want to see. This one is a little disappointing in the script which could have been tighter.. yet I really found it quite gripping even though it's lengthy as well. I think this is a classic to see. And, this is a drama you can invite the husband to watch with you.
