Haunted by the responsibility she feels for the death of an Iraqi child, she becomes obsessed with the safety of her own daughter, feeling the need to protect her against a threat that doesn't seem to exist. As Suzy's paranoia builds, her behaviour becomes more and more erratic, until finally, she puts her own child in serious danger.Written by
If you want to see the effects of psychological stress disorders after war this movie is for you. It was hard for me to take some scenes there are graphic, sexual and fascist/racial scenes of violence throughout the film. The main characters battle story didn't seem logical to me but I don't think that was the point of the film, though it does make you think. I never realized how scarred British troops were coming back from war. I think the film could have had a bit more story, maybe regret after decisions made maybe a psycology session or two with a shrink. I think It's important I should say that not all soldiers come back scarred some respect the people and love the country they fought in so not all of them are lunatics after war. I give this film 6/10 because it's one of those that makes you think but had some story problems and also not everybody likes to watch films with happy endings. So this is for all you sad people, enjoy ;)
