DARK BLUE WORLD (Jan Sverák) Rating: NNN
Dark Blue World tells the story of a pair of Czech pilots (Ondrej Vetchy and Krystof Hádek) flying for England during the second world war. It's remarkably old-fashioned, a buddy movie full of shots of planes taking off, landing and occasionally blowing up against a cold blue light and an "English" countryside that looks rather too mountainous. Tara Fitzgerald is on hand as the English girl who falls for an English pilot (Charles Dance in the Trevor Howard role). Well done, if you like that sort of thing. 119 minutes.
