Deeply nostalgic moviemaking is rendered with digital precision in Robert Zemeckis' highly manicured World War II romance "Allied".In "Allied," with Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard, he has resurrected the espionage thriller in all its classical glamour with a knowingness that's both impressively grand and stiffly hollow. The film begins with a lone parachutist drifting as softly as a leaf onto the Moroccan desert in 1942 .He is Max Vatan (Pitt), a Canadian spy working for the British, so handsomely outfitted that he could have fallen not from the sky but out of another firmament – "Lawrence of Arabia". Pitt, particularly, comes off too flat in the film's first half.Marianne and Max, as a couple, are forged in an unguarded moment amid war.The fog of war is so thick in "Allied" that it blows even into the bedroom of two people in love.
