D-Day has failed and Britain is under Nazi occupation. Following on from its acclaimed cinema release, RESISTANCE comes to DVD and Blu Ray in March.
Sarah Lewis (Andrea Riseborough), a 26-year-old farmer's wife, awakes one morning to find that her husband has disappeared along with all the men in the valley. Assuming they have joined the Resistance, the women of this tiny community pull together, taking on the running of the farms, and wait, desperate for news. A German patrol arrives in the valley, the purpose of its mission a mystery. When a severe winter forces the two groups into co-operation, Sarah begins an acquaintance with the patrol's commanding officer, Albrecht (Tom Wlaschiha). Cut off from the surrounding war, the lines between collaboration, duty, occupation and survival become blurred.
Based on the critically acclaimed novel by Owen Sheers, RESISTANCE features sensational lead performances from British rising star Andrea Riseborough (Brighton Rock, Made In Dagenham) and Tom Wlaschiha (Enemy At The Gates, Valkyrie, Brideshead Revisited), and co-stars Michael Sheen (Frost/Nixon, The Damned United).

A small party of German soldiers is detached to the area, and their thoughtful, war-weary officer senses an opportunity for a quieter life in rural Wales, away from the brutality of the eastern front. Although his men receive a hostile reception from the women, they gradually become accustomed to each other, and the delineation between cooperation, confrontation and collaboration becomes blurred with increasing familiarity and the simple, shared tasks of day to day life.
With a brilliant set-up like that, this should have been a stunning film. Instead it's curiously stilted and muffled. Iwan Rheon puts in an excellent performance as a young lad indoctrinated to be a resistance fighter, no matter what the personal cost. But his mentor, played by Michael Sheen, makes only a few strangely stunted appearances, and the German characters -- commanding officer apart -- are scarcely given the opportunity to rise above two-dimensional caricatures.
The miserly special features (three miniscule mini-docs and a commentary; no subtitles) reveal part of the problem. Resistance on DVD runs to less than an hour and a half and the book is far longer, and the behind the scenes footage shows that whole story arcs, characters and important scenarios have been hacked out from the final edit.Read more ›
the same name by Owen Sheers, and directed by Amit Gupta.
The biggest difficulty for me was the disconnect between what we
know happened and what might have happened had the Nazi's actually
Set in 1944, we have to assume that the D-Day landings have failed
and that the UK is under the occupation of Hitler's regime.
The film opens with the women of a small Welsh farming community
finding that all of their men folk have disappeared. As the film
unfolds, we learn that the men have gone to join the British
Resistance. Michael Sheen in what seems more like a cameo performance
rather than a full role, plays Tommy Atkins a resistance leader, who
is mentoring George (Iwan Rheon) a young resistance messenger about
Captain Albrecht (Tom Wlaschiha) is a young German officer exhausted
from the Russian Front and now seeking a quiet life keeping order in
the Welsh valley. Sarah (Andrea Riseborough) in the role of shocked
farmers wife, with a totally expressionless face throughout, plays
the female lead.
As the film unfolds, we learn that Albrecht is a Medievalist and has
been sent to steal art treasures for the Reich. He stumbles across the
famous Mappa Mundi from Hereford Cathedral which has been hidden in a
cave, he shows it to Sarah who seems unimpressed.
The film tries to convey something of the difference between cooperation
and collaboration with the local populace and the invading army, but I
feel that it fails miserably in that the Director leaves his viewers
with little substance.Read more ›
I would really like to give a better rating because as I say, the cast is good but the direction, in my view, is just too minimalist.
