Powerful movie dealing with the IRA problem
12 June 2001 | by MRBICKLESee all my reviews

This is a highly unknown movie about the problem of North Ireland and the IRA, but the message is shown even with more power than for example IN THE NIGHT OF THE FATHER (1993). The movie follows the life of a little town where they suffer the IRA activity and that of the british army too and all is done with much reality and an insightful and not positioned view of the subject. Highly recommended. 8/10
