The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp

Directed by Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger
1944    2h 43m    Not Rated
War, Drama, Romance,
General Candy, who's overseeing an English squad in 1943, is a veteran leader who doesn't have the respect of the men he's training and is considered out-of-touch with what's needed to win the war. But it wasn't always this way. Flashing back to his early career in the Boer War and World War I, we see a dashing young officer whose life has been shaped by three different women, and by a lasting friendship with a German soldier.
