Audience Reviews for Ill Met by Moonlight (Intelligence Service) (Night Ambush)

  • Sep 08, 2011
    A true story about a group of British agents and Greek resistance fighters performing an audacious operation right under the noses of the cream of the German armed forces. Beautifully played and paced in an endearingly modest and understated British manner this film is something of a classic.... And if anyone doesn't know - the title is a quote is from A Midsummer Night's Dream by another famous Brit.
