Best film ever about N. Ireland conflict.
31 January 1999 | by (LA, CA.) – See all my reviews

This movie really surprised me. It's one of the best films on

the Northern Ireland conflict I've seen, ranking with "Cal,"

"The Crying Game," "Michael Collins," and "The Boxer" to tell

the very personal story of two brothers feuding in the middle of

the cease fire declared several years ago. As someone with a

younger brother, the story really touched and resonated with me

on a very deep level. Kudos to the writer and to the entire

cast, especially the Irish actors who played the brothers and

the entire supporting cast. It's an experience I won't forget.
