      The problem with this wartime movie is that it's too polite. There's no sense of menace or danger in the Belgian setting, where the Nazis are in occupation. That's partly the fault of the screenplay and of director Anthony Asquith, who hadn't the temperament for such a story.

      Eric Portman, an entertainer, and Phyllis Calvert revive a patriotic underground newspaper, La Libre Belgique, only to be betrayed.
