Flying the Flag
4 November 2019 | by richardchattenSee all my reviews

Only last night I saw people being coerced by the use of torture into treading on Christian icons and imported items being brought into 17th Century Japan being inspected for concealed crucifixes in Martin Scorsese's 'Silence'; and today I saw the significance still given to inspirational objects such as the Belgian flag that men (and women) were still prepared in the 20th Century to risk their lives to preserve and smuggle them to safety.

Boasting an evocative title; although clearly made very quickly and cheaply in a variety of formats ranging from obvious back projection and models to beautiful sylvan location work - and with both Belgians & Germans mainly speaking in received English - the obvious sincerity lying behind this film and the moving music "specially composed" (as the credits put it) by Ralph Vaughan Williams makes the whole thing touching to watch. It's also doubly poignant to see the lovely Jane Baxter in a rare wartime role making one of her final film appearances.
