故事橫跨四十多年,歷經一戰和二戰。男主角是出身英國貴族的戰鬥英雄。他聽說有個不負責任的記者在德國撰寫侮辱英軍的文章,便隻身前往德國,因而邂逅了愛迪絲。出於英國人的含蓄矜持並未表白愛意,返英後才意識這位偶然邂逅的佳人是自己的真愛,從此苦苦尋覓與之相似的影子。

Considered by many to be the finest British film ever made, The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp, by Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger, is a stirring masterpiece like no other. Roger Livesey dynamically embodies outmoded English militarism as the indelible General Clive Candy, who barely survives four decades of tumultuous British history, 1902 to 1942, only to see the world change irrevocably before his eyes. Anton Walbrook and Deborah Kerr provide unforgettable support, he as a German enemy turned lifelong friend of Candy’s and she as young women of three consecutive generations—a socially committed governess, a sweet-souled war nurse, and a modern-thinking army driver—who inspire him. Colonel Blimp is both moving and slyly satirical, an incomparable film about war, love, aging, and obsolescence, shot in gorgeous Technicolor.
