When Michael McElhatton was researching the prison scenes for this film he went to one of Ireland's Prisons. While he was there he met prisoners who were huge fans of the series Paths to Freedom in which Rats first appeared. Some of the prisoners had taken the character of Rats to their hearts that they wrote some of Rats' sayings on their cell walls. See more »
I always loved the Paths to Freedom mockumentary so I went to see this film as soon as it came out. The characters are as brilliant as I remembered them, Tommo being particularly hilarious. This film will probably only do Ok in Ireland, but I think it will become a real cult classic. Can't wait for the video.
