A film that you never forget - a genuine cult classic., 15 August 2000
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
The apparently simple plot-line belies a truly astonishing climax. I have
seen this film reduce an entire cinema audience to stunned silence on
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.
