A powerful story of conflict between two former enemies, one, who killed the other's brother in an ordered IRA style execution, the other, a boy blamed by his parents for doing nothing to stop it. This explores the struggle of how both men try to resolve the nightmares they have lived with since the event. A no-holds- barred and totally realistic depiction of life as it was in Northern Ireland during the troubles and the wash up effect it had people after the event.
There is something to be learned from it, especially in this day of terrorism, of how young men can be brainwashed into thinking they are doing something for a noble cause.
A great movie to watch at least once. An honest portrayal of yet another aspect of the conflict in Ireland.
...also you just can't have too much of those wonderful Irish brogues and beautiful scenery!
Really glad I hired it.
Maintained fantastic amount of tension throughout and the sparse documentary style of film made it even more effective at giving us an insight into the reality of the Northern Ireland situation. Great performances by Liam Neeson and James Nesbitt.
I enjoyed the movie as I knew alot of the history in Ireland
a very dramatic story, renacting a true happening in troubled Ieland about a youngboy wittnessing the shooting of his older brother by one of the young youths called Alister, that was part of the Ulster movement and how it ended up ruining the lives of all of his family, where they had trouble coping with the loss, his mother particullary blaming him as he wittenessed the shooting,and also the guilt that Alison the boy who shot the brother had in later life , after serving a prison term for the crime,he wanted to meet him to say how sorry he was,a very emotional meeting though not as planned, with both men eventualy leaving the demonds behind, with James Nesbitt and Liam Neeson as the main characters, very good
This is a gripping and realistic story. Worth seeing.
Started off well then lost my interest. Seemed more like a play than a movie.
Worth watching. Well acted.
