There is an enormous amount of interest in this film, and rightly
It defies a low budget production to deliver that rarest of things in film - atmosphere.
The apparently simple plot-line belies a truly astonishing climax. I have seen this film reduce an entire cinema audience to stunned silence on several occasions.
Edward Woodward gives a performance of such understated power it is difficult to envisage anyone else in the role of Sgt. Howie.
The whole production just weaves its magic spell - music - location - cinematography and direction all combine into a masterpiece.
