A film by Kevin Brownlow and Andrew Mollo, a must for anyone interested in a ficional occupation of Great Britain during WW2.
The film is available on DVD and can be found on Amazon, 97 minutes long, the film is highly recommended. It was also shown on Channel 4 recently.
Perhaps one of the greatest British films about World War Two ever made. It is one of the few films to consider the concept of WHY the war was fought or at least from the point of view of the British standpoint. It is not so much about the fighting, although that is in there too, but it is more concerned with the social and political effects of a fictional occupation of Great Britain, and as such takes on some very hot social themes.
The film is all the more incredable because it is made mostly by amateurs and some of them went into the WW2 reenactment hobby about ten years later and became my personal friends. Although the film had a very small following during the early years and failed to make it to the box office, due to various reasons including the demand that several scenes be excluded for 30 years by the distributors (including a sequence showing genuine British Fascists airing their beliefs).
The fictitious "Immediate Action" Organisation, based on the 1930´s British Union of Fascists (BUF), some of the scenes were filmed spontaneously without script.
The fictitious Waffen-SS "BLACK PRINCE" Division shortly before they were gunned down by partisans after surrendering in the last minutes of the film.
The same scene, this time showing a close up of the "BLACK PRINCE" cufftitle.
A film poster available on Amazon.
The fictional newsreel was very well made and thought out.
A collection of film stills, it should be noted that the film was made on location in the UK and no original wartime film was used at all.
"Mirror on the World" Newsreel. A ten minute fictional newsreel which is shown in the film scene where Pauline Murray is sitting in the cinema, very clever and realistic with the additional touch because the BBC´s own Frank Phillips narrated the newsreel. (The start of the film uses the voice of John Snagge and another scene uses the voice of Oswald Mosely). This filmclip is also available on its own as an extra on the film DVD.
"It Happened Here" The original US film trailer, which cost as much to produce as the whole film itself! As it happened the film was not released in the USA and the trailer was never used. It can also be found as an extra on the DVD.
