Film: Resistance

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.

Ric’s Rating: Poor


  1. If it centers around something historical, dull is not good.

  2. I had high hopes Alex but this didn't deliver.

  3. Oooh, I love me some Tom Wlaschiha :) Can't wait to see him in GAME OF THRONES next month

  4. At least that should be more interesting than this one Dez!
