Editorial Reviews

Harry (David Jason A Touch of Frost) and Frank (David Warner Titanic) promise to honour their friend Albert's dying wish to be buried on the hill in Germany where the three fought side-by-side in World War II. Feeling too old for adventure, but determined to keep their word, they set off across Europe in Harry's black cab on a journey full of surprises. Hopelessly lost in France, they pick up German hitchhiker Vicki, who intuitively uncovers the dark secret that has haunted them for over fifty years - and helps them find their way.

What a lovely, wonderful story this was. Sure it's way too brief at just 68 minutes, but the cinematography, the expert camera work along the way, and the story line itself is just so great to behold and settle into a cozy chair to watch unfold.

We begin the story watching flashbacks to three soldiers in the war, showing them to be who they are today. David Jason, as we progress, shows none of his Frost or Del Boy quirks here, which is good, and we soon forget about those characters and believe in this older one. David Warner hasn't been around on US screens for a while, and as this film was made for ITV Television in Britain in 2009 - and is seeing its first release in the US on this DVD - it seems most likely his US cinematic days are done.

Shame though as he puts in a stellar role alongside that of Jason. When the two men are 'liberating' the corpse of their friend, Michael Jayston, Jason whispers, "He's in here." To which Warner replies, "Why are you whispering? He's dead, not resting!"

Once in Germany they, for no apparent reason save for she might be able to help them read the maps, pick up a young, blonde German hitch-hiker called Vicki, who they continue on their adventure with. 'Albert's Memorial' may be about a task that 70-year olds should never have undertaken, but felt they should do is definitely a "black comedy" for sure, but comes complete with some serious, thought-provoking moments too.

Revolving around the "last wish" of one of a trio of World War II soldiers to be buried in Germany on the hill where the three were stationed in Hindenburg, the reasoning of such a request is revealed in more ongoing flashbacks.

This is a well done movie that takes the viewer into a past that still haunts the present men from WWII and the guilt they feel for an act they could not have prevented. It's well acted, touching with humor in between and a grand touch of what lengths we all may be willing to go for our friends.

Very well put together "happening," which is leaves one happily sad !! Well acted, (as always) - would recommend it and in comparison to the violent, almost pornographic, film productions of today, it is almost peaceful to watch ! Buy it for a good story.

I liked this movie though it reminded me of another film A Foreign Field. Albert's Memorial is about two friends keeping a promise to their dying friend and comrade. All are caring guilt of what happen there in Germany during the war.

This is a lovely film, almost like a rowing boat trip down a gentle river, with occasional slight rapids, ending in a glorious picnic reminiscent of Wind in the Willows.

Subtle, but not underplayed. The ending was fairly obvious soon after they got to Europe, but that did not interfere with the enjoyment that the film caused.

Seeing David Warner as an older man, with such presence, makes me optimistic about my own future.

This is a film to put your feet up to, and relax, and enjoy.
