The first of four made-for-television movies (the other two being this and The War) based on the diary of Helen Reddy, a woman who served in the First World War. The idea of using real people in the film has a certain amount of realism to it, but there is a great deal of historical inaccuracy. The inclusion of one soldier in the film who was a black man (who was a black German) does not help the problem. One of the things that did work for me was the conflict between the soldiers and the German occupiers. I found it a fascinating character study of two different kinds of men. The Germans were portrayed as being more cruel and inhuman than the Allied soldiers. The relationship between the two, which was supposed to be very tense, was almost non-existent. The British soldiers on the other hand, were portrayed as being much more empathetic, and there were many moments where I found myself tearing up. The "Furlong" character was the only one who really stood out in my mind as being more than a little bit of a jerk, but even he was more than what he seemed. Overall, this film is pretty much an accurate portrayal of the horrors of war. It also has some good acting performances, especially from Robert Carlyle and Joanne Whalley, who are great in their roles. The film is also well-made. I found the pacing of the film to be quite good. The only thing I found a bit slow about the film was the introduction of the characters. But once they started to have a story to tell, I found the pace to pick up. Overall, this is a very good film. I recommend it to anyone who enjoys war films. It's a very good one. 7/10

I have seen the film a couple of times and I really like it. It is based on the memoirs of a German prisoner of war in the French colony of North Africa who, as the narrator puts it, was the last survivor of the "factory" of his family. The French colonial authorities were convinced that they could use the prisoner as a propaganda tool and so they put him in a French prison, a similar one to the one where he served. There he was housed in a cell of the same dimensions as the one in which he had been sent, but the cell was larger and better equipped with a kitchen, a toilet and a shower. His diet was not prepared from scratch, but the French government decided that the prisoners would be fed a diet which was free of carbohydrates and high in fats. There were some issues with this approach. First, many of the prisoners were mentally retarded and not able to think for themselves. Second, there was a shortage of French prison staff. The French government decided that it would be better to try to find some British officers to run the prison and then send the prisoners to them, rather than hiring the British police to do the job. I think the story is not as bad as it is made out to be. It is based on facts, but it is not that bad. I like the idea of the British officer and the fact that the prisoners were not allowed to take any medicines. It was pretty much like a factory system. There was only one thing which I did not like. I was not happy about the treatment of the prisoners. The French colonial authorities wanted to make sure that the prisoners were treated humanely, but I think they were a little too humane and that is why the prisoners were killed. It was not necessary to do that. In the film, the prisoners were taken to the camps and then to the camps for execution. I think that would be a little too slow. I was not too sure about that. In the film, there is a scene where one of the prisoners dies, but he is not killed. I think it is a little too slow, because in a movie like this, the main character is supposed to be in the same situation as the main character. It is not a very good movie. It is based on a memoir, but the story is not very good. I think that this is a good film to see, but I think it is not as good as it could be.

As I watched the movie, I realized that this was not a typical anti-war film. That is, until I saw the ending, which I have to say was rather far-fetched. While I could not bring myself to have my blood pressure rise when a character dies, I did feel a little bit of sympathy for the soldier who lost his leg. I also liked the character of Lenny, and thought that he was somewhat of a sympathetic character, even though he had absolutely no reason for wanting to die. The script, as well as the acting, was excellent. It was certainly a very interesting film to watch. I will give the film some credit for not giving the viewer an easy out by showing the soldiers' reactions to the events that were taking place, but the film did not try to convince the audience that the soldiers were justified in their actions. It gave the viewer an image of how they felt, and the movie just followed that image. I would also say that the acting was not very good. I am not familiar with any of the actors, but I do believe that the main characters were better acted than the main characters in The Deer Hunter. I also thought that the character of Lenny was underwritten. While he was a noble character, I found him to be somewhat of a moron. He was clearly acting stupid, but in a way that was supposed to be funny, but was not. I also thought that the character of Aida was underwritten. While she was an intelligent character, she was not given much to do. She was shown as being somewhat of a victim of circumstance, but it was difficult to figure out why. In the end, I thought that the film was very interesting, but I do not think that I would have enjoyed the film more had I not been a war veteran.
