Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Forgive Our Foolish Ways debuted as a British TV movie in 1981. The film is set in 1946 Yorkshire. Schoolteacher Kate Nelligan makes the acquaintance of German POW Helmut Becker, who has been assigned to work on a farm. Kate and Helmut fall in love, much to the dismay of the locals, who can't forget what German bombs had done to the countryside a few years earlier. Forgive Our Foolish Ways made its American bow in 1984 on the Arts cable TV network (you know that service today as Arts & Entertainment).
