At some point, I tried to watch the classics directed by Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger, especially since their movies were considered as the Golden Age of British cinema. This one was the 2nd movie they directed together and it would be their first critical and commercial hit.

" Probably the best photographed, gorgeously shot and epic propaganda war drama that was made during WW2. It has a great acting trio in Roger Livesey who gets better with more and more makeup on him, Anton Walbrook likeable as a (God forbid!) nice German and Deborah Kerr in a fascinating triple role. It can be a confusing film as it mixes all genres: comedy, drama and war epic into one big cauldron and doesn't really give into any of them, but I loved it and the cinematography is gorgeous.
