Hoping to entrap Maria von Gall, who runs a courageous underground railroad for Jews in France, the Nazis kidnap her son Thomas, a brilliant 11-year-old chess master. An exchange arrangement goes awry and he sees her die in a hail of bullets; but he is rescued by his American father, whom he has never met before, and who plans to flee with him to Spain. However, Queen Maria had solemnly entrusted her little pawn Thomas with a precious secret and a terrifying mission, and it was time for him to move. A pawn may become an important piece by slowly, quietly advancing all the way through the enemy's ranks. Or a pawn may die trying. Retreat is what a pawn can never do.

There's just TOO much going on. LIke, the film couldn't decide what it wanted to be. A spy film, a romance or a war film? On top of that it also It has some comedy mixed with some songs. It works better if you see it just as a romance and also it's better to just not take it that seriously however I did find it entertaining despite it's weaknesses. It helped that the film had strong leads. I had only seen Julie Andrews in Sound of Music and Mary Poppins, so this was my first time exploring her work outside of those two famous films. She's one of the most beautiful and talented actresses ever, her singing in this film is just as good as her more famous films. Her pairing with Rock Hudson was fun to watch. They both are very charming together and both give great performances. They were the highlight of the film, it wouldn't have been that enjoyable without them.Overall, a good watch but I would only recommend it to Julie Andrew fans :)
