SYNOPSIS

A lyrical eulogy to the resilience and heroism of the National Fire Services during the London blitz and unarguably the greatest achievement of the Ministry of Information’s Crown Film Unit. The brilliance of the film is in its haunting imagery and perfect rhythm, from the leisurely opening to the frantic pace of the firefighting sequences to the symbolism of the closing shot. A flawless piece of cinema.
