William D One of the worst movies I have ever seen. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 04/18/24 Full Review Steve D More of a well intended lecture than an actual film. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 05/31/23 Full Review Jon C Good but neglected WWII spy/resistance film This film is unjustly neglected, though it's readily available on DVD. Other comments here give a good plot summary, so I'll just comment on the film's strength's and weaknesses. The main weakness is that for what is basically a spy film, the suspense isn't very suspenseful -- it kept occurring to me how much better Hitchcock would have done it. But on the positive side the film is otherwise well directed, with very good acting (especially by Gracie Fields) vividly realizes the atmosphere of both Paris and the French countryside, and is beautifully photographed by Lee Garmes, one of the best Hollywood cinematographers. The ending turns surprisingly moving, and the score is one of the better ones of its time. I'd call it a film of broad interest which everyone will be glad to have seen once, especially if you appreciate good cinematography. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 08/09/16 Full Review Audience Member bennet produces & stars in this espionage mystery drama Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Stirring 'Resistance' yarn which flies the flag gracefully for the Allied war effort. It's completely one-sided, but it's hard to expect anything less from a movie with a purpose, but the story is interesting enough. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Read all reviews
