A low-key treatment in semi-documentary style about the true story of Allied spy Violette Szabo (played by Virginia McKenna), who parachuted into Nazi-occupied Europe during World War II. Betrayed, she was captured, tortured and eventually executed by firing squad in Ravensbruck, France.

This year I bought both the book Carve her Name with Pride and the dvd. I have not been able to get her story out of my head ever since. I wonder how anybody can have been so brave. How a young girl could volunteer to be parachuted or be landed by plane in occupied France knowing how the Germans were likely to treat them when and if they were captured.......is supreme courage.
The dvd is excellent as is the book. It is based on fact which makes it serious reading. There were many other young people who did what she did and I have a great admiration for them all. Thank goodness there are books to read and dvd's for the next generation to see so that they are not forgotten.
You will not be disappointed.
It proves that the women of the Second World War did more than sit at home knitting glove.balalavas and socks as so many people thought.
BE WARNED - before viewing make sure you have a box of tissues handy.
It is a real "weepy" movie but at the same time it fills you with pride
especially if you are a British woman. I am proud just to own this DVD.
This film did make me cry, the title is very evocative and I think today when perhaps WW2 is becoming increasingly forgotten, its necessary for us to remember those who made the ultimate sacrafice. Those who gave their lives to protect their families and us as a nation should not be forgotten and we should be proud of them.
That didn't mean to come off as a jingositc review but it kind of did. My apologies. Buy this movies!
Made in 1958 the costumes do look more 50s than 40s but that is a minor quibble. The spirit of the period is well drawn in the family scenes as well as the action ones. It would have been difficult in that time to show the full graphic horror of what Violette endures in France. The camera work is adept as building the suspense showing the approach of danger before veering away to allow sound and your imagination to fill in the blanks. The effects are convincingly portrayed by lead actress Virginia McKenna. The poignant ending had me welling up.
An excellent film portraying the real wartime experiences of a heroic woman.
