Starts light, but delves deeper and darker.
27 March 2003 | by (Omagh, N. Ireland) – See all my reviews

This film starts quite light, I thought, in the same vein as the Field, with a southern mapmaker making a map in a rural border town, plagued with all the sours of N. Ireland, and exposing them comically. However, it soon gets very dark, focusing in on a young boy who is determined to find out why his father was really killed by the IRA.

There's not really much more to say about this film, without giving too much away. But a very fine premise, perhaps not fully fulfilling promise, but not very far off.
