  • Daniel S.'s rating of the film The Virgin Soldiers

    ***1/2. I love dramatic comedies when death unexpectedly appears in the middle of a comic scene. Italian directors master this difficult genre but you can still find hidden pearls in World Cinema as Americans elegantly and tactfully call non US movies. So here's a British film of the late 60's which may quench your thirst. Antimilitarist yes but classy. Discovery of the month. Recommended.
