Fairly interesting story about a resistance group infiltrating American agents into a German flame thower installation in Normandy followed by attack by US paratroopers in the night leading up to D-Day, with a bit of romance thrown in for good measure. Lots of action and not a bad story, with reasonably authentic uniforms and equipment even if most of the actors look far too old for active front service, a common fault with many war films.
Unfortunately, the technical quality of the film is frankly appalling. It looks like a third generation VHS transfer and sounds even worse with a constant crackling throughout. Obviously a widescreen transfer to full screen, you have the inevitable dialogues with people off-screen. The picture is always blurred, sometimes faded and sometimes so dark it is hard to see what is going on. You need stamina to sit this one through.
The small print on the cover admits "Some quality may have been lost during the transferring process". Yes indeed!
