5.0 out of 5 stars Totally blown away., 2 Oct 2005
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: When The Wind Blows [DVD] (DVD)
I first saw this in 1987. No one watching that film that day walked out of that theatre with a dry eye. It is the story of Jim and Hilda, a nice old couple who could be your parents or grandparents. They live out in the country having retired and their life harks back to the glory days in the "last war" and when the government knew best. While the rest of the world is inching towards nuclear conflict, Jim begins planning for the attack in the only way he knows how, he reads the government documents and acts on what they say. When the bomb falls, they are the unlucky ones and survive the initial onslaught; the following days are harrowing for them and immeasurably sad for those of us left watching. The end, when it comes for them is so incredibly moving that it cannot fail to leave you thinking of your own family and what future we as a species might have on this planet.
