| Easily one of the best CFF films
Many CFF films were puerile or just plain cheap looking. Here we have a really decent and serious effort with good acting and good production values. The look and feel of the film is about right, it doesn't get boring and from what my father told me (he too was an evacuee) not far off what life was like for a city child living in the middle of the countryside during WW2.

The plot about two London boys living on a farm who believe they have seen a German bomber plane crash nearby but nobody believes them only to find the pilots still alive may seem a bit far fetched but actually things like this really did happen. The pilots are well portrayed too, not demonised like other films have done.

This is an intelligent, realistic, entertaining and well directed little film that uses its locations and its small budget well. It was admittedly made towards the end of the existence of the CFF but its is certainly one of the better CFF efforts and definitely worth a watch with appeal to adults and children alike.
