Time Out says

In 1944 Hitchcock made two British shorts - Bon Voyage and Aventure Malgache - for the Ministry of Information; they were shot in French and intended exclusively as propaganda for liberated French territories. Bon Voyage, from an idea by Arthur Calder-Marshall, unfolds through flashbacks. A Scottish RAF officer (with an Etonian burr) is debriefed in London after his escape through Occupied France. Hitch is right at home with the man-on-the-run scenario, but what's most interesting is the cleverly structured shift in perspective, from the subjective testimony of the officer to the overview afforded by his superiors. Essential viewing for completists, but not, perhaps, for others.
