Amanda Nørgaard

Love Story (1944)

When a concert pianist learns that she has a serious heart problem. she vows to enjoy what time she has left.

A typical old-fashioned tearjerker tastefully made and played so that the outlandishness of the plot is hardly noticeable.

Halliwell (no stars): "Novelettish love story which became popular because of its Cornish Rhapsody."

Nastassia Lindes

Breach (2007)

Based on the true story, FBI upstart Eric O'Neill enters into a power game with his boss, Robert Hanssen, an agent who was put on trial for selling secrets to the Soviet Union.

Intensive character study but a bit lacking with the figure of the young investigator.

Maltin ***: "Solid, straightforward drama with a superior performance by Cooper that reflects the many facets of Hanssen's personality...although we never really understand what makes him tick."

Force 10 from Navarone (1978)

During World War II, several oddly assorted military experts are teamed in a mission to raid and destroy a bridge vital to enemy strategy.

Typically good-humored WWII star vehicle with a plot with a few twists too many.

Halliwell (no stars): "Routine war hokum with plenty of explosions and sudden death, but not much sense. Nothing, really, to do with The Guns of Navarone."

Maltin BOMB: "Awful sequel to GUNS OF NAVARONE, poor in all departments, although Shaw, Ford, and Nero give it a lift..."
