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.

Woundings is an arty futuristic film full of action and romance.

Woundings is a futuristic film, but has no real time scale to it, set on a remote island after a war(which is loosely based on the Fauklands war), we have a group of British soldiers who are living amongst the islands local inhabitants, when the British government recruit young women to move there to start a new colony. The film is packed with action, adventure, love and romance, and some humour!! It has a great script and is directed well, and boasts an exceptional cast, it's not your average post war film, but has many memorable moments. There is a great section to look out for where the "prince" visits his troops, I won't give away what happens, but you may see that the "prince" is based on what Prince William (England) would look like in the not so distant future!!! anyway, I recommend this film, and I think you will all enjoy it!!
