    MOVIE REVIEW

    At a fashionable dinner party in Hong Kong a pilot is coaxed into revealing details of a dream in which eight persons take off from Bangkok in a Dakota bound for Tokyo and crash in the Japanese mountains. Amongst those listening is Air Marshal Hardie who is due to fly to Tokyo the next day. Hardie initially dismisses the dream because he is scheduled to fly out in a Liberator, but as Hardie arrives at the airport he discovers that the Liberator has developed mechanical problems and has been replaced by a Dakota. When, just before the flight is due to depart, two soldiers board the plane making a complement of eight, Hardie fears that the Dream may be coming true and he is destined to die.

    I would love to make this page different to the countless Dvd pages on Night My Number Came Up 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 (ihuppert5@aol.com) and I'll add it within 24 hours, crediting you with just your first name.

    I'll start it off: this is a gripping movie. In fact I find it more watchable than the more esteemed Ealing movies and yet I can't put into words just why. Certainly the story frame doesn't help it as you know from the start that there has been a crash but despite knowing this there is tension right to the end. But it isn't the story that holds me - it's the feel of the movie I can't quite convey. It's ethereal, magical, a trip near to the Other Side without quite getting there but it's there, always there - in the shadows or behind that mountain, that cloud.

    I love it. Don't let my clumsy words put you off it's a must see film. I'm surprised it isn't more popular today - it's kind of been half forgotten, relegated to a footnote in the illustrious history of Ealing Studios. But it's worth far, far more than that.
