  • Ehsan's rating of the film 49th Parallel

    The most striking moment in this masterpiece was Nazis' meeting with the farmers. Only a master like Powell could show us that fascism is only a concept based on various issues like money, power and public mania. And how fragile is this outward order and discipline! how stupid and savage!

  • Dave's rating of the film 49th Parallel

    Yes it is war-time propaganda, but it is also just great storytelling as only The Archers could do. I rate this one even higher than most P&P fans and consider it among their finest.

  • Ethan's rating of the film 49th Parallel

    This is an interesting chase film from the magical team of Powell and Pressburger that offers up some good anti-Nazi propaganda in a part of the world where we don't usually see a WWII movie take place. Definitely a riveting piece of cinema even if it is a product of its time.

  • Algitya's rating of the film 49th Parallel

    Like 'One of our aircraft is missing' in reverse , This anti-Nazi triumphant tale satisfy them who seek to get astounded by (perhaps) the greatest ensemble ever happen. ( Olivier - Howard - Massey both against the silly-vicious Nazi )

  • Tibulle85's rating of the film 49th Parallel

    Réalisé en 1941, il est logique qu'un film de ce genre véhicule des messages de propagande. Il n'est cependant pas impossible de le faire avec finesse et nuances (cf. certains films de F. Lang de la période). Ici, après une 1ere partie assez palpitante, le film s'enfonce malheureusement (comme un sous-marin torpillé) dans un patriotisme naïf et la caricature (le chef nazi peu crédible, car totalement outrancier...)

  • Ludovic72's rating of the film 49th Parallel

    Après un démarrage assez laborieux, l'aventure prend du rythme et de l'intérêt quand les six Allemands se retrouvent livrés à eux-mêmes. Dès lors, la dénonciation tous azimuts des aberrations de l'idéologie nazie devient magistrale, quitte à recourir à certaines caricatures ou symboles un peu lourds. Après tout, mieux valait ne pas faire dans la finesse... surtout au milieu de paysages grandioses !

  • Hector Camero's rating of the film 49th Parallel

    Great storytelling. I find this film familiar with Grand Illusion in a sense that both portray mankind, fragility, even though there's an permanent intention on punishing the Nazi ideology. Anyways, I don't like elocuent stuff such as "In this country (Canada) freedom is respected, not in yours" kind of lines. Ironically, for instance, you start to emphatize with the germans being in a hurry, don't you?
