The film opens on a quiet, sunny and eerily empty town square, that could be anywhere in central Europe but which is obviously set-designed to look a lot like 20th Century Vichy France even though all the signs, notices and storefronts are written in English and everyone seems to be American. A small child runs across the empty street and is quickly scooped up by a worried parent and whisked indoors.

IMDB Rating: 7.5/10

The camera pulls out from a close-up of an inscription that’s carved into the plaque at the base of the commemorative statue dominating the centre of the square; erected at the end of the First World War, it reads: “In memory of those who died to bring peace to the world”. As we register these words, the sound of engines fills the air and the old-world pleasance of the square is suddenly disrupted as it is besieged from all sides by German tanks, local people nervously emerging to stand and look from their doorways. A notice has been pasted up outside the town hall.

It seems to adopt a reassuring tone and is signed by the Mayor, and a small crowd gathers around it; the notice claims that home law will continue to apply in civil cases and that no ordinary citizen going about their daily routine need notice any difference in their day to day life, or in the running of their schools, courts, police or public offices. Only those who oppose the Nazi military presence with violence will incur censure by the German District Commandant, Major von Keller. The message ends with a plea begging all citizens to co-operate in obeying regulations, ominously concluding with the words that this is the best way to help keep civilian life free.

The rest of the film is to follow the lives of a small group of ordinary people who range across the wide social spectrum that makes up town life, from the local school to the rail yards and on into the town hall itself. The positions these citizens usually occupy in the life of the town are to be affected in a multitude of ways by the Nazi presence, and each person is to be challenged by their interactions with the military forces: tempted either to collaborate out of simple fear for the future, or encouraged just to ignore what’s going on and turn a blind eye in the interests of preserving an easy life.

The film starts by sketching sympathetic, often quite gently comic characters and situations which are beautifully rendered by the illustrious cast; but then goes on to show how the personal and private spheres they occupy are unavoidably intertwined with the politics of public life under a totalitarian regime, and a previously good-hearted people can quickly become grievously morally compromised if sufficient vigilance isn’t maintained against the creeping internal taint that is the end point of just ‘going along with the flow’.

This Land Is Mine (1943)

This Land Is Mine is a 1943 American war drama film directed by Jean Renoir and starring Charles Laughton, Maureen O'Hara and George Sanders. The film is set in an unspecified Nazi-occupied European country. Laughton plays Albert Lory, a cowardly school teacher in a small village "somewhere in Europe" (according to the film's opening title card) who is drawn into the actions of the Resistance through his love of his country and fellow schoolteacher Louise Martin, portrayed by O'Hara.

The film is one of the more acclaimed of the propaganda-tinged war films of the era. It won the 1944 Academy Award for Best Sound, Recording (Stephen Dunn). Having opened simultaneously in 72 theaters, the film set a record for gross receipts on an opening day upon its 7 May 1943 release.

Recovery Volumes (.rev)

Recovery volumes or .rev files are special files which can be created by WinRAR/RAR and allow you to reconstruct missing and damaged files in a volume set. They can
only be used with multi-volume archives.

This feature may be useful for backups or, for example, when you post a multivolume archive to a newsgroup and some of the subscribers did not receive some files. Reposting recovery volumes instead of usual volumes may reduce the total number of files to repost.

Each recovery volume is able to reconstruct one missing RAR volume. For example, if you have 30 volumes and 3 recovery volumes, you are able to reconstruct any 3 missing volumes. If the number of .rev files is less than a number of missing volumes, reconstructing is impossible. The total number of usual and recovery volumes must not exceed 255 and the number of recovery volumes must be less than the number of RAR volumes.

WinRAR reconstructs missing and damaged volumes either when clicking on .rev file, or when using rc command or automatically, if it cannot locate the next volume and finds the required number of .rev files when unpacking.

You may use the "Recovery volumes" option in the Archive name and parameters dialog or a similar option also appears in the Protect archive command to create recovery volumes. In the command line mode you may do it with -rv switch or rv command.

Original copies of damaged volumes are renamed to *.bad before reconstruction. For example, volname.part03.rar will be renamed to volname.part03.rar.bad.
