Movie Info

May 1940. To escape the German invasion, the inhabitants of a small village in the north of France take to the road, like millions of other French people. On this exodus, the villagers take with them a German child, whose father opposed the Nazi regime and who has been jailed in Arras for lying about his nationality. During the chaos, the father is freed and sets out to find his son, accompanied by a Scottish soldier who is trying to get back to England.

Critic Reviews for Come What May

All Critics (19) | Top Critics (9)

With its old-fashioned gloss, the incident-packed story proves only mildly engaging and finally has little to say.

"Come What May" is a paint-by-numbers account of a real-life World War II event, the displacement of eight million people from their homes in France.

September 15, 2016 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

If you ever wanted to see a wartime movie that feels directed by a kinder, gentler Michael Bay, Come What May is right up your alley.

There's nothing excessively imaginative or distinguished about the film, but it has some of the solid narrative pleasures of a good, old-fashioned Hollywood war epic.

"Come What May" is ... too pretty of a movie. It is often sentimental and, worse, schematic.
