The plot is highly interesting and the acting superb. A very practical point; it is very difficult to negotiate progression through the episodes, which could have been made much simpler as it was in the past. The designer also seems to assume that everyone has telescopic vision to read the tiny ,scrappy text titles. Some accompanying notes or a documentary about the author, the activities of "the circus" at the time and the cold war background would have been welcome.

The film starts with some explanatory texts printed in such minute script they are unreadable...so you are off to an unpromising start.Actors" appear, shamble about like demented morons and speak some incomprehensible language with not a single consonant or clear vowel sound.Chimpanzees could speak and act better.Many American films are a disgrace.It would be helpful if all films were clearly marked; British or American speech, and we would make our own choice.Such appalling low grade
material should never be put on the market...a con. I HAVE rated this film. Zero is what I give it.

The film is of its time...acting not very good, showing Hollywood influence. One has the impression that the resistance workers do very little substantial work, as the film focuses on sentimental concerns, and what now seems like patriotism which is partly the result of brainwashing.The producers show sloppiness and ignorance as some of the German is incorrect. Violet szabo's story should merit a new filming with more appropriate casting and better focus.

The book contains ideas about the privatisation of medicine and the consequences.The film is unacceptable.The diction is so sloppy, the actors often speaking as though with their last dying breath,and with backs to the viewer...their speech is a lot of the time incomprehensible..it is hard to credit that it is English.The director seems to prefer showing some sexuel sequences,having some loud music and filming some shabby dance routines to actually telling the story with any clarity.A five year old could have done better.Why approach a story in this adolescent and crazy fashion?Viewing the film one had the impression that the technical equipment was failing as the volume kept fading. There were no reviews, so I had to purchase on trust.
