Review

A star rating of 2 out of 5.

It's odd to find Peter Hyams directing this glossy Second World War weepie, as he is more usually associated with sci-fi action adventures such as 2010 and Timecop. He's certainly more at home with battle sequences than romantic clinches, as is his star, Harrison Ford, who often looks distinctly uncomfortable here as an American pilot whose air-raid encounter with nurse Lesley-Anne Down leads to trouble with her husband, Christopher Plummer. Apart from some lovely photography from David Watkin, it was all done much better in the 1940 Vivien Leigh/Robert Taylor vehicle, Waterloo Bridge.
