Set in 1942 in Morocco, France and England, the story is of Canadian air force intelligence officer Max Vatan (Brad Pitt) and French Resistance fighter Marianne Beausejour (Marion Cotillard). They meet and undertake a deadly mission together behind enemy lines pretending to be married. Later, their relationship is threatened by doubts about her loyalty to the allies and the extreme pressures of the war.

Robbie Collin says in his 4 star review in The Daily Telegraph "This is a film where couples look like a million bucks in direct sunlight and five times that in shadow, and talk in that heightened movie-speak where every line feels like an airborne shuttlecock: playful, arcing, nimbly swatted."

Matt Prigge says in his 4 star review in Metro "Once its real plot belatedly kicks in and our heroes find themselves in the thick of it, it's one of the best things Robert Zemeckis has ever made."
