Rating: A- -- The rarely seen film, a gem, is loosely based on a 1940 magazine story by Graham Greene. Full Review

WENT THE DAY WELL' is the innocent-sounding title of one of the most subversive films to come out of World War II, a British drama that was unsettling in its day and is even more so now.

4 stars out of 5 -- Made as a propaganda piece to warn against complacency, this has stood the test of time as a genuinely nail-gnawing British action-thriller.

Rating: 5/5 -- A wartime conspiracy thriller, a black-comic nightmare and a surrealist masterpiece in which stoutly English-seeming army types reveal themselves to be Nazis, like the reflected figures turning their backs on us in Renà (C) Magritte's mirror. Full Review

Rating: 5/10 -- Its jingoistic nastiness and nationalist aggrandizement makes this film exactly the kind of nonsense Powell & Pressburger's The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp was made in response to. Full Review

Jan 12, 2019
Long the cineaste's favourite wartime propaganda movie, Cavalcanti's darkly comic invasion drama still surprises and delights with its unexpected second-act change of gear and genre.

Rating: B -- Part paranoid propaganda, part thriller and part quaint period study, Went the Day Well? is an entertaining oddity begging for an update. Full Review

Product Description:

Made in 1942, when the possibility of a German land invasion of Britain seemed all to real to the citizens of England, WENT THE DAY WELL' was originally intended as a propaganda film. Being superbly made, however, it has managed to maintain its power in the interceding years. A group of soldiers arrives in a small British town with orders to be interred there for a period. The townspeople are happy to have them, until they discover that the soldiers are in fact German spies. With no help in sight, the people find that they themselves will have to fight back against the Germans. WENT THE DAY WELL' transcended its wartime propaganda purposes to become a classic of British film.

Product Description:

During WWII, British villagers hospitably receive a platoon of soldiers who will be billeted with them. But as it turns out, they're actually German paratroopers who hold the village hostage. Produced by Michael Balcon. Written by John Dighton and Angus M
