    "It addresses something I've always been profoundly interested in – what it means to be English ... it is about bigger things than the war. It takes a longer view of history which was an extraordinarily brave thing for someone to do in 1943, at a time when history seemed to have disintegrated into its most helpless, impossible and unforgivable state."
    —Stephen Fry, interviewed by the Daily Telegraph, 2003

    Much to Churchill's annoyance, Powell & Pressburger question the gentleman's rules of warfare underneath the veil of a romantic epic. Wonderful, epic and subtly heartbreaking. ••• 6 years 3 months ago
