The Exquisite Pain of Love
1 March 2009 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I know of no other drama to equal this film for sheer intensity. The passion of the main characters is almost unbearable, rendered the more so by the brilliance of the acting and the fact that every facet of the story reflects only too truly the tragic reality of recent Northern Irish history. The personal, the spiritual, the social and political dimensions are perfectly interwoven to produce a dramatic masterpiece.

There is plenty of humour, and a fair bit of sub-plot, but the shocking twist towards the end is what really makes the film inspirational. If anyone needs to experience the difference between love and sentimentality, or to feel the outrage of hypocrisy and betrayal, this is the film. In view of the superficiality of modern taste, it's no wonder it's been buried !
