The Cockleshell Heroes ★★★

I expect the music in these fifties films to be a bit front and centre, but this was beyond -every five minutes was interspersed with some manic symphonic variant. It was a bit wearing by the end. 

On the plus side I did like the composition of loads of the shots, really looked nice. So, down to rest of it, it seemed a bit off with the jauntiness of the training versus the drama of the action could’ve done with a lot less preamble to get to the action . Though I did like the lieutenant hanging casually about while one of his soldiers gives a civilian a pasting with his blessing.
