11 May 2000 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

Although the subject matter here was of intrinsic interest to me ( I was born in Belfast) this woeful attempt at drama has "tommies" (as British soldiers were known in World War I) with long hair bursting out of their caps, Margot Kidder trying & failing to achieve an Irish accent and the Irish portrayed as murderous, stupid or both.

There's shocking over-acting and a ridiculous ending with dozens dead.

This production never got within 100 miles of Belfast and is best ignored.
