A gripping, intense film.
20 May 2001 | by (Cwmbran, Wales) – See all my reviews

It's a long time since I saw this film but I remember it especially for the conflict between the young squaddie (British soldier) and the sargeant who is trying to stitch him up for the murder of a catholic. The film makes the classic points about poor working class lads being recruited into the army. The twist of this story is that the young lad is from a poor Welsh speaking, deprived area who over time begins to empthasize with the struggle of the Irish against the British army occupation.

If you come across this it is definitely worth seeing.
