This is an excellent war film from Ealing which depicts true events.It succeeds despite the lack of acting skills on the part of Tommy Grinder.What is rather interesting about this film is the way it highlights the activities of enemy agents and the fifth column,lifesaving the more famous"Next Of Kin".With the exception of the boat captain nearly every Frenchman is depicted as in league with enemy,hardly very flattering but obviously reflecting a common held view at that time.Even the army officer turns out to be an enemy agent.Gordon Jackson is impressive in an early role and Constance Cummings is clearly cast with the American market in mind.
