Synopsis:
Andrija (Tom Conti) stars as a likeable and good-natured lifeguard at a tranquil Yugoslavian summer resort. It's the last summer of the German occupation, and he has yet to save a life. However the calm is disturbed when a platoon of Nazis set up camp on the opposite bank. Then a young widow (Susan George) and her son ask him for a place to hide from the Germans. Andrija falls in love, then saves the life of a drowning man. But whose life has he saved? This unique and gripping World War II drama captures the warmth of this idyllic land, and the evils of war that affect all of their lives.

Very Dated and Showed its Age - That Summer of White Roses review by KW

Spoiler Alert
19/02/2019

Not the greatest of transfers to DVD, and the disc I has was a rather grainy picture quality. Watchable but at times the plot seemed to being stretched to ensure a 90 minute film. Tom Conti as the central character did his best with a thin script, helped by a series of cameo performances from the likes Rod Steiger, Susan George, Alun Armstrong, plus a continent of Yugoslav actors.
