Movie Info

This subtle, unadorned British war drama was the second collaboration between "The Archers," Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger. Six British bomber crewmen are obliged to bail out over Holland. To escape detection from the Nazis, the crewmen accept the hospitality of several Hollanders, all dedicated to the freedom-fighting activities of the Underground. The film is constructed along the lines of the earlier Powell-Pressburger film The Invaders, except that the escapees are British rather

Reconciliatory spirit trumps jingoistic trumpet-blowing

i'm a big sucker for briitish war propaganda and this is one of the best. only the second film for powell and pressburger as the archers and it's clear they make a great team. the film involves a bomber crew forced to bail out over holland and try to make it home with help from the dutch resistance. gripping stuff

Might be the best WWII film made during the war. A tribute to the Dutch resistance as well as the RAF.

A great Powell and Pressburger film, overshadowed by 'The Red Shoes', 'A Matter Of Life and Death' etc, but should not be missed.

The film was intended as a propaganda piece and has a documentary like feel.

Also, two names to look out for. Peter Ustinov in his first film role as the Priest, plus David Lean, who was editor.

    1. Else Meertens: Do you think that we Hollanders who threw the sea out of our country will let the Germans have it? Better the sea.
    2. Jo de Vries: You see. That's what you're doing for us. Can you hear them running for shelter? Can you understand what that means to all the occupied countries? To enslaved people, having it drummed into their ears that the Germans are masters of the Earth. Seeing these masters running for shelter. Seeing them crouching under tables. And hearing that steady hum night after night. That noise which is oil for the burning fire in our hearts.
