Aroview: From the dir. of KOLYA and based on the story of Czech pilots who fled the Nazis in WW2 to fly alongside the RAF, this is an unsentimental, yet romantically-depicted slice of a little-known area of wartime history.

Fashioning an old-fashioned love-triangle between Ondrej Vetchy, Krystof Hadek and Tara Fitzgerald, its journey is perhaps a little predictable, but is certainly memorable for its beautifully-shot aerial battles and faintly self-deprecating Czech humour.
