Interweaving spectacular archival WWII images, at once seductive and repellent, with fictional narrative, this remarkable film follows an ordinary young man, Tom, as he sets off to join Operation Overlord (codename for the invasion of Normandy). The film segues between the intimacy of Tom's ill-fated journey (his dalliance with a young woman, worries about his cocker spaniel, his reading of David Copperfield) and the grand, horrific spectacle of the actual D-Day invasion. The result is utterly transporting.
