Convincingly shows how men and women in love during wartime wrestled with the contradictory demands of loneliness, desire, conscience, community, and erotic passion

Audience Reviews for For the Moment

I have to watch this movie every time it shows up on our TV. The story is interesting - dealing with life, love and death in a World War II pilot training school in my backyard. The movie was filmed in Manitoba - and I recognize most of the scenery. I love Pachebel's Canon which is featured in the movie. Russell Crowe is pretty good as a young leading man.
