The Great Escape

Description
A powerful adventure and perhaps a different kind of comedy about the prisoner escape from Stalag Luft III in Sagan (now Żagań present in Poland) in Nazi Germany under the leadership of Hitler. Prisoners begin their mission by turning the escape from the prison by digging a tunnel to escape, but they are surprised by the presence of guards. The adventure begins for these prisoners because they use boats, trains and planes to get out of occupied Europe in an adventure that is the most insane and risky.

Each group of characters get their own riveting planning sequences, all skillfully told. This is one "heist" film where knowing the details of how the escape is supposed to go down before it happens only strengthens the suspense further.
