Excellent TV movie from Australia's golden age
28 June 2017 | by jecesq-28604See all my reviews

Top telemovie about a genuine heroine from WW2. Filmed mainly in France from the look of it,with an Australian/British cast,what it lacks in production budget it makes up for in quality direction and pacing. Noni Hazlehurst is a star,with John Waters and Shane Briant giving good support;some of the minor characters are a bit lame,but overall it's well worth a look,particularly if like me you didn't know anything about Nancy Wake (a Kiwi I think)and her heroics with the French Resistance. Oz made some quality movies and TV mini-series in the 1980s,most of which have been forgotten,but many were very good viewing,and this is one of the better ones that still stands up well today.
