The movie looks past the fat, bald military man with the walrus moustache, and sees inside, to an idealist and a romantic. To know him is to love him.

The rarest of cinematic treasures: a historical epic that is also intensely personal and emotionally earnest.

Combustible Celluloid

It's a blatant bit of World War II propaganda and very talky, although with an undeniable spirit and some Lubitsch-like comic passages.

A 1943 Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger collaboration so unambiguously satirizing the military mind-set that Prime Minister Winston Churchill tried to have it banned.

Few British films from this period seem to mythologize the pre-war period of Churchill's youth and early career quite as potently.

Its status as a national treasure is assured, thanks to Roger Livesey's protean lead turn, Deborah Kerr's three incarnations of his ideal woman and the mastery of the medium that typified The Archers at their height.

This glorious film is about the greatest mystery of all: how old people were once young, and how young people are in the process of becoming old.
