    "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

    Anton Walbrook is unquestionably one of the greatest actors of all time. He is just sublime in this film. 7 years ago
