Product Description

Wartime drama starring Eric Flynn, Petra Davies and Francis De Wolff. In the small French town of Mereux there is a great deal of unease when a German garrison is stationed there in 1940. The local men quickly form a resistance group and mount an attack which goes horribly wrong, resulting in two of their members being captured, tortured and publicly executed. One of the dead men was the brother of Maria (Petra Davies), who, after his death, vows to exact revenge on the German officer responsible and so decides to help the French Resistance any way she can.

By C. FULLER TOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 1 Oct. 2009
This is one of a batch of 3 films released by Pegasus Entertainment and they are Danziger Brothers B pictures.
This film stars Eric Flynn, Petra Davies & Francis de Wolfe and is directed by Max Varnel. Dating from 1962 this has very much a studio/theatre feel and the principals plus Martin Benson are all excellent. Clearly the budgets were modest but the storyline by Brian Clemens is well constructed and he learnt much of his craft with the Danzigers. The picture quality is clear and fairly sharp but the sound at times is a little low (to my ears!). Overall an interesting film and worth watching. Look out for more titles in October 2009.

Afficianados of 'Ello 'Ello may find some of the accents in this curious little film familiar. There is, in fact, little attempt to recreate the period or the place faithfully, and the whole effect is of cheapness and cliché. The women's hairdos and dresses are very much 1962, not 1940. The set is as generic as the one Universal used for almost every film set in "Europe" for decades. Production values are generally low and the film quality poor. Then there are the clichés: amongst the enemy, we meet the good, troubled German, the wicked, sadistic German, and the workaday, decent sergeant who really ought to have been played by Michael Ripper; amongst the French, the appeaser, the passionate hothead, and the coolheaded organizer are all represented; clichéd too is the plot itself, with a local maiden, whose young brother is shot by the Germans, persuaded to exploit her hold over the good German in order to get information from him about troop movements--a task she finds remarkably easy, even as she begins to fall for him herself. The Resistance seems to find destroying German troop-trains and local infrastructure fantastically easy and we see no more reprisals. The only slight surprise is that the film does avoid Hollywood's usual demand for a neat resolution and a happy ending.
