My wife and I throughly enjoyed this film, the film was portrayed as a mixture of romance and humour and we were extremely entertained by the whole performance. Our Son found the film a little on the slow side, but he is used to the big time action films so to a degree on another wave length, (Plus of course the plot was for prisoners of war, so the action expectation bit would be some what subdued, never-the-less there was some good action albeit more of the typical day to day life of big boys falling out with one another (over a girl etc.) rather than military engagements).
We have seen so many WW2 films over time and subsequently have a sound appreciation of a film cut above the rest!
The scenery is awsome as the Emerald Isles indeed are, and the plot is good (different) the acting was excellent and the whole movie was well put together.
Will we watch the film again, absolutely you can bet on that one.
