"Personal! Powerful! Human! Heroic!"


  • Director: Lewis Gilbert
  • Genre: Drama, Action & Adventure, Art House & International, Classics,
  • Studio: 20th Century Fox
  • Subtitled | Widescreen | Black & White | Duration: 110 Mins

The postwar British film industry relied heavily on "now the story can be told" accounts of engagements that helped turn the Second World War in favour of the Allies. Too many were smug action adventures that devalued the true heroism of the exploits they depicted, but this fine film fully captures the tensions, dangers and complexities of battle by concentrating on the unsung back-room planners as much as on the combatants themselves. There are necessary caricatures on both sides, but at the same time there is a respect for the enemy that is missing in many previous flag-wavers. An unusually restrained Kenneth More is first-rate as director of operations at the Admiralty.
