Enthralling thriller set in wartime London. At the height of the Second world war, a disparate group of men and women gather together to be trained as British operatives. But one of them is a traitor…


Ealing imported from France Simone Signoret, one of several British films she made.

The film appeared in early 1948, too soon after the end of the war to be part of the revival of interest in the subject which was to occur in the Fifties. As a result its box office performance was disappointing.

The title of the film was taken from some lines by Byron: 'Yet Freedom! yet thy banner, torn but flying, Streams like the thunderstorm against the wind.'

I would love to make this page different to the countless Dvd pages on Against The Wind that are out there in the cut and paste world that is the web. You know, brief outline, thumbnail of cover and, if you're lucky, the back cover. Very little content is original and you'll find that on alot of releases. Any reviews leave out the fact that each movie has a heart and soul and touches people in different ways down the years. So if you would like to add anything on the film, whether good or bad, or trivia on the film - indeed anything like how it made you feel when you first saw it - then e-mail me here ( and I'll add it within 24 hours, crediting you with just your first name.
