An examination of the malevolent London underworld with its despicable criminal underground. Ray (Mick Rossi) just finished an eight-year prison sentence after getting set up. Now he is back on the streets to settle the score.
In 1941, as part of an effort to remain strictly neutral, the Dublin government made a deal with both Berlin and London whereby any soldier, sailor or pilot captured on Irish soil, whether of German or Allied forces, would be interned for the duration of the war. What the Irish failed to tell was that they would intern everybody in the same camp. It is here that Canadian pilot Miles Keogh and German pilot Rudolph Von Stegenbeck meet after a fight in which both their planes were downed. Outside the camp, both fall in love with the same woman, an independent Irishwoman who refuses to take steps in their private little war. Written by

The Brylcreem boys is a terrific film and is a must see for all history buffs. The events in the story are all true and give us a feel of what life was like during war-time Ireland. As an Irish person I related to the anti-war theme. This is a film that can be seen again and again,a nd enjoyed by all age groups. I highly recommend it. Ayn Madigan. London-Dublin
