R | | Romance, Thriller, War
A ruthless German spy, trying to get out of Britain with vital information about D-Day, must spend time with a young woman and her crippled husband.
The helicopter portrayed in this film is supposed to be a Westland Dragonfly, one of Britain's first, mass produced, military helicopters which went into service several years after WWII ended. However, when the helicopter lands on the island towards the end of the film, you can see that this helicopter is in fact a Westland Widgeon fitted with a false, perspex nose.
The war has come down to the two of us.
In the scene where Lucy is getting away in the truck, we see it has normal peace-time headlights, not the black-out ones during the war.
