The Colditz Story

Film, Drama
The temptation to label this escapist entertainment is just too great. Actually, it's a prosaically inspirational docu-drama on PoW heroism in the notorious World War II fortress, which unambitiously substitutes an obliquely nationalistic self-portrait for the critical resonances of an ostensibly similar film like La Grande Illusion.
