Movie: Charlotte Gray

cover

Feeling tired but a little restless after a day of climbing, we settle down to watch this World War II movie about a Scottish woman who goes into German-occupied France to assist the resistance. It’s a good story, highlighting how a person’s ideals and emotions can be changed by war. The cinematography is gorgeous throughout. I couldn’t get comfortable, though, with all French people speaking English – I think subtitles would have been more effective. The soundtrack gets a little overbearing at times. Ann remarked afterward that it made the war look almost too glamorous. We can deny enjoying it, though.
