The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp
From the celebrated Powell And Pressburger comes this artistic masterpiece detailing the experiences of a British officer, Clive Candy, through the trials and tribulations of his army career. During the Boer War, Candy is sent to Berlin to trap a spy. There he befriends a German Officer, Theo, who marries the girl Candy is in love with. During the First World War, Candy marries a girl who resembles her and helps Theo - now a POW - to get repatriated. He comes back in the Second World War as a Brigadier General and once again encounters Theo. He is captured, however, and the two are forced to either aid or betray each other.
