    After a steady diet of murder and mayhem in movies during the last few years -- since the advent of CGI -- it is such a nice relief to see a film that depends more on character development than special effects. My wife and I enjoyed this movie and it is one that stays with you. It's a good story that cries for a sequel since the plot thread between the French resistance fighter and Corporal Rossi is left unresolved. The film also boldly allows for the possibility of good guys on both sides of the conflict. In short, I will look forward to adding this to may film collection when the DVD appears. It is a worthy companion to its predecessor.

    PS: I had a very close friend who was shot down three times behind enemy lines while on B-17 bombing missions into Germany. During the last of these missions he was nursed back to health and brought back to American lines by a young lady of the French resistance who was very much like Emily in the film. She was shot and killed immediately after delivering him back to safety.
