The Story of Hitler's England

"The German invasion of England took place in July 1940 after the British retreat from Dunkirk. Strongly resisted at first, the German army took many months to restore order. But the resistance movement, lacking outside support, was finally crushed. Then, in 1944, the resistance movement reappeared."

In Kevin Brownlow and Andrew Mollo's brilliant and chilling re-write of history, Germany has won World War II and Nazi troops occupy England. Pauline, an apolitical nurse, hopes only that normal life will return to England. It is only after she accepts a nursing job with Nazis that she slowly begins to realize the horrifying reality behind the occupation. It Happened Here is a masterful, terrifying vision of what might have happened if the Allied effort had been in vain.

Brownlow was 18 and Mollo only 16 when they began this monumental war drama. After eight years of incredible obstacles and bad luck, they persevered with the help of hundreds of volunteers and several saviors (including directors Stanley Kubrick and Tony Richardson), creating one of the most accomplished and remarkable films in independent cinema.

This print features the controversial sequence of genuine British fascists airing their beliefs, a sequence originally cut by distributors.

This is a real oddity amongst films set during or after WW2.
It has a real gritty feel that does make you think about what could have been.
