Al­lied

Film / 9pm / C4

TV Times - - Saturday -

a good old-fash­ioned World War Two ro­mance with Brad Pitt star­ring and Robert Ze­meckis (For­rest Gump, Back to the Fu­ture, Cast Away) be­hind the cam­era, Al­lied tells of Pitt’s dash­ing Cana­dian in­tel­li­gence of­fi­cer fall­ing for French Re­sis­tance fighter Mar­ion Cotil­lard while on a job in Casablanca. But what do the lovers re­ally know of each other? That’s the key ques­tion for the sec­ond part of the movie and it shapes ev­ery­thing. It’s a hand­some pro­duc­tion with classy act­ing through­out, al­though it’s Cotil­lard who shines bright­est, eclips­ing even the usu­ally ra­di­ant Pitt. There may not be any­thing new here, but the jour­ney is a hugely emo­tional and ex­cit­ing one.
