Flicks Advisor (comments from our film promoters)

A very well done account - and bit of humour amongst the hardship and injustice.

This was generally enjoyed and people found it interesting and rather tragic. There was some feeling that it was a touch long and slightly lost its energy because of that, but the storyline was effective and great character acting.

A brilliant film not as bloody as I thought it would be but it is hard to watch in some parts! I recommended watching it
