Storyline

This film hypothesizes that someday in the future, Great Britain will be racked by a great civil war with its ancillary countries that are under the regime's thumb and that females will be recruited into special units to fight the war. The film examines the women who are combatants in one of these units. However, the film concentrates mostly on the emotional under-pinnings of these women rather than any war experiences.

A script that deserved better
27 July 2000 | by (Helsinki, Finland) – See all my reviews

A disappointment, I must say, since it's based on a play by Jeff Noon, one of my favourite writers. A psychedelic futurism is sought, with lots borrowed from A Clockwork Orange, but the weird photography doesn't quite fly and it does all get a bit stagey. The cast is very good though, but again, the performances are more theatrical than cinematic. The script is in itself quite oddball enough, and could have taken a more deadpan, or highstrung, or subtle rendering. Just imagine Kubrick behind the camera. Some very memorable moments, my favourite: the prince visiting the newlyweds. It should have been better, but it's still worth seeing (for those who like this sort of thing); ordinary it ain't.
