R | | Drama, War
Two young British soldiers during the First World War are given an impossible mission: deliver a message deep in enemy territory that will stop 1,600 men, and one of the soldiers' brothers, from walking straight into a deadly trap.
Inspired by Sam Mendes' grandfather's experiences in WWI: "The Autobiography of Alfred H. Mendes 1897-1991."
They're walking into a trap. Your orders are to deliver a message calling off tomorrow mornings attack, if you fail, it will be a massacre.
Scofield joins a convoy that is temporarily blocked by a fallen tree. Several Tommies are shown manhandling the tree out of the roadway just enough so trucks can get by. When the convoy continues on its way, the camera looks back at the road - the fallen tree is now missing.
The opening logos are shortened and tinted blue.
