This could have been a great thriller about an underground resistance but it moves at a snail's pace. It's beautfully shot but the whole film focuses on the unlikely relationship between a Nazi officer and a young woman who has been abandoned by her husband and it lacks pace which means I lost interest several times.
Boring, Soap opera bad - overly dramatic, uninspiring, unbelievable. And ultimately pretty unwatchable.
From the start it looks like a bad low budget made for TV movie. My first thought after a few minutes of watching this was: Hey is that Michael Sheen? Looks like him, it can't be. What is such an accomplished actor (B-List?) doing in this movie.
First the premise of the alternate scenario of England having been invaded is not a new one. It's been done in other movies in a lot more interesting way. Incidentally who knows, if Hitler had one the "Battle of Britain", and knew that Germany could have had air superiority with a little more push, that "Operation Sea Lion" (England invasion plan)could have happened.
From the start the acting, and, or, the characters are bland. It doesn't hook you in. You know this is going to be a long boring watch.
There are much better WW2 and for that matter any other genre movie to watch. Skip this one..
