amazing acting
29 November 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A piece of drama such as this can only be pulled off with an actor of enormous depth and talent. I wasn't a huge fan of Jason Isaacs before i saw 'scars', i always thought he was a good solid actor, but never saw him in a role that moved me or that was genuinely outstanding. He deserves all the praise in the world for his portrayal of 'chris', i have not seen a better performance for a long, long time.

I would strongly urge you to seek this excellent drama out, a tale of a violent man desperately trying to change for his young son and partner, realising that he can never undo the violence and pain he has inflicted on others. 'i fear for my son so much, that he will bump into someone like me one day'. see it if you can
