Good despite some plot holes, including the downed pilot's miraculously quick-healing leg. Based on a popular semi-autobiographical 1972 novel by Jan Terlouw. Nice acting from Martijn Lakemeier, who turned up again in the good 2013 film It's All So Quiet. However, the 1975 TV miniseries based on the book is rather better, despite lower production values.

An above average WWII film. Good story and good acting.
