Quotes

Hans-Dieter Stromelburg: [in full Nazi uniform, entering the ornately decorated office, where Catherine, her clothing in some disarray, sits handcuffed] The young lady is asking herself where we have met before. It was in a restaurant here in Paris. You were having trouble with a drunken oaf. Lamentably one of my own men. Happily I was able to be of service to the young lady. And I see that once again you are in need of my help.

A bit unbalanced but worth watching
14 January 2000 | by I.KSee all my reviews

Fall from Grace describes the war of the young English-French Catherine, her mother is killed in 1940 during the German campaign against France, Catherine escapes to England where she eventually volunteers to become a spy.

The Movie is based on a book by Larry Collins. Tara Fitzgerald as Catherine does her job well and manages to pull off some touching scenes in the last scenes of the film.

However Richard Anconina as Paul is not nearly as convincing as Fitzgerald, he lacks touch and does not fit to his role.

York and Fox give good back up as all experienced actors should, the Director does his bit nicely and in all I´d say this movie is not bad at all, I give it 8 from 10.
