Storyline

When Anton O'Neill returns home after five years at sea, he finds that 1970's Ireland is a radically different place to the one he left behind. Northern Ireland is in flames, and civil unrest has spilled south of the border to his beloved home in County Cavan. Blinded by hatred and misguided patriotism 'Anton' is led into an illicit world of violence and is forced to choose between his family and his country. Hunted and on the run, Anton is drawn into a battle of wills with the law and his former accomplices, ending in a showdown in which he must risk everything to protect the woman he loves.

A subject that was bound to meet with criticism- But a good Flick!
2 September 2014 | by (Dublin) – See all my reviews

Trapped AKA Anton (2008) was Graham Cantwell's first Directorial success as it was nominated for 3 IFTN's. A very brave subject matter (1972, beginning on the day after Bloody Sunday, and deals with the "Troubles") that was bound to be met with a lot of criticism (And did) , personally I liked it a lot. First off the Original Score is beautiful and the cinematography is sometimes bold which I love. What I appreciate about 'Trapped' is that it delves into the relationships surrounding Anton during this time. It has a somewhat problematic time frame but does ultimately explain the dilemma Anton is in- which solves that mystique. Local Gardai detective Lynch played by Gerard McSorley plays menacing at its best. One has to pay respect to the film makers as this was a very low budget film that did make it straight to DVD. It is political but it is also fresh in it's mini plots and angles.
