Entertainment Reviews:

Uncut - 10/01/2005
"[A] mystical paean to a disappearing England..."
Entertainment Weekly - 07/28/2006
"It's the English version of magical realism, as only Powell and Pressburger can do it: tart, never sentimental, with gorgeously shot landscapes."

Product Description:

While World War II rages, an American G.I. and three Britishers find themselves en route to the hallowed cathedral on the same Pilgrims' way taken by travelers some 600 years before and reported in Chaucer's epic poem.

Rating 5.0 Beautiful film with memorable characters Movie Lover: from DECATUR, GA US -- March, 15, 2008

Another masterpiece from Powell and Pressburger, this film accomplishes what is most difficult -- characters we care about in the first two minutes. The World War II drama played out in a small village sets the stage for the final scenes in Canterbury, with moving surprises and a fitting ending. The southern England scenery is breathtaking, sharply contrasted against a backdrop of total war. I recommend this wonderful film to anyone looking for strong character development, humor, and beautiful filmwork.
