Marianna S. (Angeloudi) from HOLIDAY, FL
Reviewed on 12/31/2008...
I ordered this movie partly because it has my favorite French actress, Sandrine Bonnaire, in it. It is set in 1944 in Nazi-occupied Belgium, where an American pilot is shot down, then hidden and nursed back to health by members of the Maquis, the organized Resistance group fighting the Nazis. He is hidden in the home of Claire Daussois, wife of a Resistance leader. Part love story, part war movie, this film shows an ultimate act of heroism at the end. In French with English subtitles.

"Sorry to say, but this may be the single worst perfomance by a leading actor in a film that I have ever seen, and I have seen thousands of films. Julia Ormand is fine, but Bill Paxton is beyond just bad. This is a movie about the Belgium resistance against the Nazis, complete with the execution of half a village, and here comes Paxton like he is in a Mary Poppins movie. It boggles the mind. Perhaps it is just me. I can't wait to hear what other viewers thought of this film."

"This movie is so bad that it is annoying. Bill Paxton plays a pilot shot down over Belgium. Taken to the house of a member of the resistance, he proceeds to have a corny affair with the guy's wife while the guy and other members of the resistance are fighting to protect him."
Corny but romantic

"This movie is not too bad. I don't think it was supposed to be a great
war epic. Bill Paxton just seemed like a typical American placed in a war torn, more reserved European culture. He's having some fun and kidding around and everyone else is ravaged by war and scared to death. He just hasn't gotten it yet. The best parts are the romantic ones. Some of it is pretty good. The background for the movie: the old house, the village, the other village people, is all pretty authentic. This is a movie that you can watch just as a story, not about war, not about great acting,
not about special effects. Just a story."
