A beautifully filmed movie, with a beautiful woman starring. The story, however, was lacking. The viewer is introduced to two lovers, passing like trains in the night in WWII London, with the (male) pilot sadly called out for duty. BAM! Suddenly we see Blanchett as a pseudo "G.I. Jane", parachuting covertly into Nazi occupied France to help the Allied cause, but mostly to look for her fly-boy Romeo. Not nearly enough time was invested in developing the above romance in film's beginning to justifiably warrant Cate's undying devotion, and definitely not enlisting for spy missions for it. The only consolation for the thin storyline for me was, as I said, she really did look exceptionally beautiful.

Starts out nice but unravels as it goes. By far, the best thing about this is the strong period feel, but all the spies and resistance fighters are just too inept to survive, especially the principles, Blanchette and Crudup.
