Nostalgic look at London during WWII has sex, mature themes.
The precision of the characters and the performances that John Boorman draws out of his actors make this a pleasure even when when it's a bit pokey and aimless.
The Blitz as a comedy: Director John Boorman offers a warmly nostalgic view of his childhood in a London suburb during WWII.
Touching World War II remembrance of Blitz-torn London
A wonderful and touching story about life during wartime.
One of Boorman's best, most personal films.
A classic chronicle of civilian life during wartime
The antics of the colorful characters and its fast-paced story line give Hope and Glory all the spontaneity of a child at play.
Simply one of the best growing up movies out there. Stands the test of time.
Time has only strengthened the appeal of this minor masterpiece. If you liked it 25 years ago you'll absolutely love it now.
War time movie about a boy and his family during the London blitz. The Germans bomb London during the World War II, families homes are destroyed, neighbours die and people are displaced. Even with the war around them, they find time for family, fun and celebrations.
A very moving, funny and thouching look at a young boys life in England during World War II. I loved this film immediately upon first viewing and having enjoyed it everytime that I have watched it since.
