    'The Victors' - an often ignored 1960s WW2 film. It is a splendid film which concentrates on the impact of war on the individual rather than action and heroics. I saw it at an event to launch the re-issue of the novel upon which it was based: 'The Human Kind' by Alexander Baron.
    Much to the author's eternal regret, the film took British characters and 'Americanised' them. This upset the author since his novel had effectively told stories he remembered from his own wartime service. Whilst I sympathise with the author's view, i believe it is to his credit that the film makers were able to do this without diluting the stories impact. It indicates that he had told a story that was international and could relate to anyone. If the characters had been German, Russian, British or American the story of the impact of war upon them would still have been relevant.
    One of the best war films ever made. Fantastic novel.
    If you have a genuine interest in WW2, and want to see an alternative to the faux-heroics of so many war films/novels, i recommend checking out both the film and the novel.

    I just heard a review of this on the radio this morning, and while the trailers didn't interest me, the review certainly did. I'll be adding it to the "must see" list.

    My wife saw "The Artist" last night and said it was phenomenal. I can't wait to see that now! And yes, it's silent, sans music.

    People think they are so rebellious and original, when really they are just banal, boring and dumb.

    Does that "restored in color" mean colorized?
