A Foreign Field - BBC DVD


A heart-warming comedy/drama about old comrades reuniting through love and bittersweet memories. Originally shown as a part of the BBC One's series of plays for Screen One in 1993. Two veterans of the D-Day landings, Cyril (Leo McKern) and Amos (Alec Guinness) return to Normandy for the first time in 50 years. Amos, who took some shrapnel in the skull during the battle of Normandy, has been mentally scarred ever since. Cyril has brought Amos to visit the grave of their wartime buddy, Briggsy, but is also keen to catch up on another wartime friend, Waldo (John Randolph).... Reminiscing about Angelique (Jeanne Moreau), a French woman they were both enamored with in their soldiering days, Cyril & Waldo decide to try and track her down, and fight for her affections once again, but where is Angelique, their former French sweetheart? And who exactly is Lisa (Lauren Bacall) the sorrowful American staying at the same hotel, and what is the guilty secret she appears to be nursing? Secrets will be revealed, rivalries stoked, and memories evoked at the Normandy cemeteries as the parties converge to pay their respects. [show more]
