Storyline

Coward is a moving and insightful drama that takes us from the idyllic pastures of Ireland to the brutal and senseless trenches of the First World War, as Private Patterson tries to keep a family promise to look after his younger cousin. A promise that proves near impossible to fulfill in the relentless and hellish onslaught of the battlefields of 1917 Belgium. Courage and commitment collide in a story, inspired by real events, that underscores the tragic nature of war and illustrates how justice can often be a casualty of warfare. Written by slogger

A short version of Paths of Glory.
14 February 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Coward is a shocking Word War 1 short film that shows us the brutal inhumanities of trench warfare. We follow two Irish soldiers in the Royal Army, Private James Hill (Sean Stewart) and his friend Andrew (Martin McCann), from their home in Ireland to the brutal fighting in Ypres, Belgium. After a long battle with the Germans, Andrew is shell shocked and has to face trial. He has no one to represent him in court because his commanding officer Major Pound (Paul McNeilly) does not believe in shell shock's existence. Coward is a short but brilliant film about trench warfare. The plot s very similar to that of Stanley Kubrick's Path's of Glory. The acting is good and you really feel for these characters. I highly recommend it.
