Few World War II flicks showcase the absolute beauty of the European countryside. In "A Bridge Too Far," the landscape, made all the more picturesque in its contrast to the gore and destruction, is certainly an additional star and supports the wisdom of shooting this expensive epic in the Netherlands. The wide-angle approach, as well as the moving score, give balm to eyes and ears now accustomed to the tortorous naturalism of "Saving Private Ryan." Attenborough pulls back, thankfully. In its final scene, "A Bridge Too Far" achieves poignance without dialogue, without bluster, and without the common contrivance of summoning tears with half-baked, insipid bathos. Sir Lawrence Olivier and Liv Ullman stare straight ahead, the fresh graves of British paratroopers lining their path from an elegance destroyed, from an order and faith utterly shattered. The scene is perfection. And the film itself is close to it.

There will be plenty of good debate on this, but in my opinion at least, this is the best film made about WW II. Read morePublished 7 days ago by Roy Hobbs
Almost great, a bit uneven, like the operation itself. A tribute to troops on both sides (except that Wehrmacht trooper who gunned down the old lady looking for a taxi). Read morePublished 20 days ago by Christopher Purcell
