A brilliant Irish film from a different perspective!
27 October 2005 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

An excellent film with an alternative perspective to Irish history, in this case the rebellion of 1803 led by Robert Emmmett told through the eyes of a young woman, Anne Devlin.

The film is remarkably intelligent with the script opting to explore the realities and problems of planning a rebellion at the start of the nineteenth century as oppose to merely romanticizing the events. Significantly the actual rebellion or battle itself is not shown, for the simple fact that the protagonist, Anne, was not at the scene during it and this reflects the director's wish to ground the film with the central characters' perspective. The film has been somewhat overlooked internationally but hopefully in the fullness of time will be appreciated for championing the views and the voices of those figures who still continue to be ignored by history books.
