One Against The Wind Mary Lindell works for the French Red Cross in Occupied France during World War II and helps allied soldiers who have been shot down to escape to the unoccupied side. Her activities are complicated by her high profile and her daughter’s love affair with a German officer. Based on the true story.


One Against The Wind I’m a huge Judy Davis fan, so this may be biased. Anyway, this was my 2nd glimpse into the magnificent works of the great and talented Judy Davis (my first was “Life With Judy Garland” which was even better!). The way she portrays this woman is more than words can say. I love how she usually portrays women who are very spirited in what they do. The chemistry between Sam Neill and Judy Davis is wonderful, too! This was their 2nd movie together. Anyway, I’d give this 10/10!

When An Guardian Angel Brave Woman Saves Many Lives in Times of War

In Second World War, the English Countess Mary Lindell (Judy Davis) and former Red-Cross nurse in the First World War lives in France with her son Maurice Lindell (Christien Anholt) and her daughter Barbe Lindell (Kate Beckinsale). When she sees the Major James Leggatt (Sam Neil) wounded and wandering in an occupied Paris, she does not hesitate to risk her life to save him from the Germans. This is the beginning of her support to the Allies (specially British and American soldiers) in France, helping them to escape to Spain. This true story has a powerful performance of Judy Davis in the role of a splendid woman. Mary Lindell, as presented in the film, was the guardian angel of many soldiers, saving many lives along the war. Unfortunately this is a television movie, otherwise Judy Davis should have deserved to be Oscar nominee, having such a performance. A great movie, recommended for all audiences.
