I've sent off for it, but haven't got the DVD yet

I will give them another week or so then chase them up again

I finally found the address to order a copy as it was not in the 11th day site.

For those interested it is on the TEST site of this forum.

I think it would be a good idea to update this thread when (if) we start getting copies delivered

I may be getting cynical in my old age but I suspect these guys aren't the most professional in the world

my greek isn't up to that!!  

I struggle with english! (i'm from Lancashire  )

I must point out in Archangel Films defense, I got an email from them today saying they didn't have a mailing address for me and as soon as i re-send they'll get my film off...can't wait  

I also received a press release about the film which is quite good, i am not sure if i should post it or not???  

one interesting thing that caught my eye was :-

Fermor's participation in the film marks his first on-camera interview in over 50 years—just one reason why so many World War II historians and enthusiasts have been so eagerly anticipating the film's debut. Another reason for the film's robust fan base is that the story of the film’s creation is as much of an underdog story as the film itself.

I didn't know Paddy made an appearance

I have finally got my copy, I would describe the film as a documentary-drama I suppose, The film is a number of interviews with surviving veterns, with parts of the story acted out in rather general terms, more like something you'd see on channel 4 or the history channel than something you'd go to the pictures to see

Paddy Leigh Fermor is interviewd and featured, he comes across very strongly, The OSS get a good part as well (I always knew the americans won the war  )

Archangel films have sent me an extra copy by way of apologising for the late delivery so If anyone would like a copy for a fiver....... email me!!
