English Summary:

Yanks is a 1979 drama film directed by John Schlesinger and starring Richard Gere, Vanessa Redgrave, William Devane, Lisa Eichhorn and Tony Melody. The film is set during the Second World War in Northern England and features no combat scenes.

The film depicts the relationships between American soldiers stationed in semi-rural England and the local population during the build-up to Operation Overlord in 1944. In particular, three romances between US service personnel and local women are shown, in order to explore the effects of the cultural differences between the brash GIs or "Yanks" and the more reserved British population.

A small northern town soon finds out that a large U.S. Army base is being established for the build-up to the Normandy landings. Soon thousands of rambunctious American troops, or "Yanks" as they are known to the British, descend upon the area. On leave in the town, Technical Sergeant Matt Dyson, encounters Jean Moreton while out to the cinema. She is the fiancée of Ken, a British soldier fighting overseas, and initially rebuffs Matt's advances. He is quite persistent, and she, doubtful about her relationship with Ken, eventually accepts him. The handsome, brash American is in stark contrast to the restrained Englishmen she has known. Soon, she is keeping company with Matt, though it is largely platonic at first.

 

Hungarian Summary:

1942-től Európa megszállásáig több mint egymillió amerikai érkezett Angliába. A katonák vagy a fronton, vagy az amerikai bázisokon teljesítettek szolgálatot. Eközben természetesen a helybéliekkel is kapcsolatba kerültek. A film három angol nő történetét meséli el, akiknek életét megváltoztatta a jenkik jelenléte. Helen, a Vöröskereszt önkéntese. Férje a fronton, ő otthon a kisfiával és számtalan, megoldásra váró gondjával. Nehéz ellenállni a kedves és gondoskodó John közeledésének... Mollie, a kalauznő szemtelenül fiatal, szemtelenül csinos és nyíltan vállalja, hogy imádja a jenkiket. Jean érzékeny, visszahúzodó lány, gyűrűs menyasszony. De amikor megjelenik az életében Matt - egy újabb jenki - rádöbben, hogy csak a szülei akaratát teljesítené, ha a vőlegényéhez kötné az életét. Érzelmei és a szenvedély Matthez hajtja. Szerelem a háború árnyékában.
