Year, production: 2001, Czech Republic/UK/

Cast: Ondrej Vetchy, Krystof Hadek, Charles Dance, Tara Fitzgerald, Linda Rybova, ...

Runtime: 112 min.

This is a Czech movie and very good one. It is about Czech pilots that fought in division 311 in England. After Germans came in Czech lot of pilots went to England to fight there. The same was with Polish pilots (division 303) but I don't know any movie about it. Maybe there is something in movie "Battle of Britain" but I don't remember now. Czech pilots and Polish were much appreciated in the battle of England because of their very good skills.

After the war these Czech pilots who fought for free Europe and free Czech were put to prison by communistic government because their were consider as enemies of the new government. It was the same with Polish pilots/soldiers.

In the movie there is not that many fight scenes. There is also some romance, friendship but it is not boring. If you want to see some European movie this one is worth to see.
