A short version of Paths of Glory.

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

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.
