What is it about The last escape?

The plot takes place in the summer of 2014, when Bernard Jordan, an 89-year-old World War II veteran, escapes from his residence to join his comrades in Normandy, commemorating the 70th anniversary of the D-Day landings.

This act of rebellion and nostalgia not only resonates with the indomitable spirit of a rapidly fading generation. It also reveals Bernie’s deep need to come to terms with his past and overcome the traumas of war.

Beyond the story, we tell you why you should watch it

The D-Day landings in 1944 marked the beginning of the end of World War II, but also left deep scars on the survivors. Bernie, aged 19, took part in this historic operation, and his return to Normandy 70 years later is a testament to the bravery and perseverance of his generation. The film, based on his incredible escape, celebrates his daring adventure and the enduring love between Bernie and his wife Rene, played wonderfully by Glenda Jackson.

Director Oliver Parker said in a statement released by Diamond Films that he hopes audiences will immerse themselves in the moving story and leave the theater with a greater understanding and empathy toward war veterans and their families.

The last escape is not just a film about war, it is an exploration of redemption, eternal love and forgiveness. Through Bernie’s eyes, we see how an older man faces his demons and finds peace at the end of his life. This message that it is never too late to seek redemption resonates deeply, inspiring all viewers.

Glenda Jackson describes the Jordans as a couple who found meaning in their postwar lives, always focused on community service and mutual love. Their story is a reminder that even in the darkest moments, love and dedication can prevail. So yes, you surely cry either because of the struggle of a veteran, the emotional strength they have to continue in life or the immense love that pair had for each other.

Is a movie that takes you on an emotional journey, making you laugh and cry as you reflect on courage, love and redemption. Michael Caine and Glenda Jackson deliver unforgettable performances that capture the essence of two lives intertwined by fate and love. It is a tribute to an extraordinary generation that invites us to live each day with courage and love, reminding us that it is never too late to seek inner peace.
