Synopsis

The "ice cold" of the title is an ice cold beer, and "Alex" is Alexandria, the Egyptian city that's a distant destination for the two British soldiers, two nurses and South African officer driving an ambulance across the desert during World War Two. They have the merciless landscape to deal with, along with the threat that the Germans will find them. Rather than being an epic war film, this is an understated, some would say "typically British" story about a group of ordinary people struggling through an often terrifying situation with grim humour - and that modest dream of a cold beer at the end of it all.
