    Really enjoyed this film, kept my attention from start to finish. The entire cast were brilliant but I thought Julia Depardieu in particular gave an excellent performance and will look out for her other films in the future.

    Frankly a bit disappointing. Unremarkable and already a week after watching it, I can't remember it

    An excellent film which conveys the terror of undercover agents in France during WWII and their emotions brilliantly. Sophie Marceau played the leading female role really well (I didn't expect much after only ever having seen her in that Bond film) and the acting in general I felt was of a really high standard. The predominant language throughout is French due to the main protagonists being, well, French but some English and German is thrown in occassionally which can be confusing, and it was somewhat surprising to watch Gestapo and Werhmacht army officers speaking French most of the time. That's the only noticeable criticism I can find, yup. Fully recommend this film!

    Not for the Hollywood blockbuster fan but a good story drawn from a reality that doesn’t get enough exposure. An entertaining story which should inspire you to appreciate the heroism and sacrifice which shaped our way of life.

    Great story, well acted, had me hooked from the first few seconds to the close. A story of bravery, betrayal, duty and fear, one of the few films I would describe as unmissable.

    I bought this based on some reviews - I was expecting some kitsh tv movie thing - probably because of the title. It is however extremely brutal and and powerful. Thoroughly engrossing well made film.
