Unique and Beautiful Film
2 October 2004 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

It has been a while since I first saw Lamb - but I remember being struck by its sensitivity and compassion. This is not for those looking for a chick-flick/action movie/happy-ever-after type of film. For those that are prepared to be a bit more challenged, make sure to watch it. It will grab your heart-strings and won't let go.

Both Liam Neeson and Hugh O'Connor put in great performances and considering the age of young Hugh O'Connor he is pretty amazing in the role of Eoin. Liam Neeson has stated that it is one of his own particular favourites.

Enjoy.
