When you get to the alehouse, see a way to get a message to my wife.
Anything, Friend. Anything.
Tell her... tell her I hate her. Tell her I did burn her father's barn. 'Twas payment for forcing our marriage. Tell her I loved her sister. Who I had. Many times. From behind. Like a beautiful prize sow.
If I'd have known that, I would have paid you more respect, brother.

This movie is about ninety minutes of purgatory, I think.
Four men from the time period of Oliver Cromwell, I think, during a battle, I think, escape the perceived carnage by falling through a rural hedge. They form a four-man band and in a weary, bedraggled condition, trudge a field with ale on their mind. What follows then is plain and simple, puzzlement.
After spending an hour figuring out what I had just viewed I've plumped for, what you reap in life is what you sow in the afterlife.
I also watched the director's vague explanation of what the film is about and I am none the wiser. I think my assessment will at least give a future viewer something to mull over.
