In 1944, the D-Day for the invasion of Normandy by the Allies has failed and Europe has not been released from the German forces. The men of an isolated Welsh village disappear and their wives believe that they have joined the resistance and soon German soldiers arrive at the village. The farmer Sarah Lewis (Andrea Riseborough) and the German Commander Albrecht (Tom Wlaschiha) befriend to each other along the year. There are great views and it did capture the theme of occupied and occupiers. It was interesting to see the interaction between soldiers and the women of the valley. The Germans were not quite as nasty as they were in the alternative universe of reality in occupied Europe of the real war
Movie Quality: 8/10

Final Thoughts

Overall, ‘Resistance’ starts off rather slow and might turn off some that may not have that great of an attention span. There are flaws in the film, but it was quite entertaining to see something from an alternate reality out of WWII.
Overall Rating: 8/10
