Hanover Street Reviews

  • Jun 02, 2018

    This is a 1979 movie so you need to keep an open mind with the genre, music (makeup) and styling of the movie. Harrison Ford is made for this role as an American soldier (& hero ??) and Christopher Plummer does a superb job as his "pleasant" side kick. Lesley Ann Down is quintessentially charming with her British ways. Richard Masur is so authentic. Pasty Kensit is delightful. There are many great lines in this movie and a warmth and subtlety you don't allways see in modern flicks. How can you not fall in love with Hanover Street.

    Filled with irony, this contrived WW2 romantic drama tried to make an affair ok with a redeeming act.

    Good plot,. Exiting action, even if a bit contrived.

    Watch this to see a young Harrison Ford and Christopher Plummer! The story is decent enough to not get boring.

    Entertaining WWII romance - action/adventure that holds up well over the years.

    The movie info isn't correct. Halloran isn't assigned to work behind enemy lines he is the pilot who is supposed to take an agent into the skies over occupied France and have him parachute out of his bomber. He ends up getting shot down and the agent and he are the only survivors. Halloran ends up working with Margaret's husband as a way to escape from the Germans and get back to England. There is a lot of good scenes in this movie but overall it is just your average war flick.

    The wartime romance is almost a melodrama by the handsome couple but relatively simple portrayal of the characters and justice prevent the move from being it. Scenes, clothing and music are beautiful.

    The romance was a bit cloying, but the section with Ford and Plummer was excellent.
