Different slant on Irish "troubles"
13 July 2000 | by eddie-83See all my reviews

As a Northern Irish exile the subject matter here was of intrinsic interest. A Welsh soldier (Richard Lynch in a strong central performance) becomes aware of the contradictions involved in policing the Irish. When he shoots a rioter in self-defense during what it has to be said is a most unconvincing riot he is arrested and subjected to what I hope is exaggerated prison brutality.

The languages of the film are Welsh and English including a rare opportunity to hear "Heartbreak Hotel sung in Welsh but the Northern Irish accents come and go a bit and the style of this drama is most fragmented.
