CGiii Comment

It's a good old [expensive] war/spy/romance drama...that has plenty of twists and turns to keep you interested.

Brad Pitt's character has a very [surprisingly] outre lesbian sister. She's not in it for very long...but, her scenes certainly make a lasting impression! Who knew that war could be so much fun!

Everything about this film oozes quality...it has received a fair amount of unfair criticism for not being bigger than it is, for not being this, for not being that...

What it is...is a damn fine story told damn well...with performances to match. At its heart, this is a love story...and, it certainly questions the definition of love with surprising and heartbreaking results.

Beautifully photographed, beautifully scored...searingly effective.

The(ir) Blurb...

In the middle of World War II, in turbulent 1942, a plane flies over Morocco and drops a Royal Canadian Air Force paratrooper who comes in to land on a drop zone, somewhere in the desert dunes outside Casablanca. Just in time before anyone notices him, the fearless Wing Commander Max Vatan gets in a car and heads to the town with orders to meet Parisian Marianne Beauséjour, a skillful member of the French Resistance. On a mission to assassinate the German Ambassador in Casablanca, the two operatives must convince every one of their true feelings as a married couple, while in the background, they need to make the necessary preparations for the critical soirée. Without delay, after the success of this suicide mission, Max and Marianne flee together to England with plans on marrying and making a family, regardless of the war.
