In this World War II drama the D-Day mission has failed and Great Britain is under Nazi rule.
The women of a small farming community find themselves having to cope with the ruling enemy forces while the men of the village are away fighting.
The intriguing premise soon fades, leaving behind a dreary tale of forbidden attraction between one of the wives and the commanding German officer.
Even a brief appearance from the usually excellent Michael Sheen (Frost/Nixon, Unthinkable) doesn’t help raise the interest level.
A dull plodding affair with no compelling characters and a very anti-climactic ending.
Resistance is available on DVD in the UK now courtesy of Metrodome.
