"Lamb" focuses on the relationship between Brother Michael Lamb (Liam Neeson), a teacher in a Roman Catholic-run institution for troubled boys in Ireland, and 10-year-old Owen Kane (Hugh O'Conor), the school's most unruly pupil. Dumped into the institution by his abusive mother, Owen is an incorrigible mess who smokes cigarettes, curses, wets his bed, picks fights and has epileptic seizures. Written by
One of coldest, driest, most painful film ever made in England. A love story with sad irony, but no humorism. You will appreciate a young Liam Neeson, in one of his first effort as protagonist. And the lovely and desperate little Hugh O'Conor: he will face the priests' life again, as one of them,in Lasse Halstrom's CHOCOLAT (2000). A picture you'll never forget.
