    I knew very little about Violette Szabo before I saw this film, which is probably the best way to watch it - it turns out I've seen a painting of her dozens of times over the years as she is memorialised on a mural outside Stockwell Underground station. Virginia McKenna gives an entirely believable and sympathetic performance as a recently widowed young woman who reluctantly joins the war as a spy for operations in occupied France. The true story of the course of her training and the dangerous missions she was sent on make for a great, exciting war film - and one that deserves to be much more widely seen (only 26 checks at time of writing) - she was clearly an exceptional woman and this is a very good film. 7 years 8 months ago
