Movie Review by Movie Addict
June 8th, 2007

Where do I stand for a corner kick?

John Huston, Oscar winning director of The Treasure of Sierra Madre, gives us an entertaining film about a football match between The Germand and Allied POWs during WWII.

Until the actual game, this was just a routine POW movie with the usual obnoxious British Officers, and the one that thinks outside the box (Michael Caine) and makes it interesting.

The actual football match was held in Paris and the Germans fielded their National Team (actors) against a collection of real players from Belgium, England, Poland, Holland, Scotland, Argentina, Ireland, and the great Pele from Brazil. The field judges were, of course, bought off by the Germans.

An escape was planned for halftime, but the game continued and escape occurred later. Like I said, except for the football, this was a routine POW film.

Sly Stallone played an American in the camp that met with the French Resistance to set up the escape. He was actually rather good.
