This is an interesting film, but one which depends on the viewer having knowledge, and interest in the subject matter. It reveals a realistic, and sordid existence of republican prisoners in the H blocks of The Maze prison. There are no attempts at sensationalism, and much of the film exposes the utter tedium, loneliness, and uncleanliness of life for those prisoners 'on the blanket'. Unlike the other two films about this period, 'Some Mother's Son', and 'Hunger', this film shows the daily grind of prison life, and the strength, and determination of the republican prisoners, not through the extremity of events so much as the corporate defiance, amidst appalling conditions. The sense of incaceration is compounded by the long periods of inaction, and by the world outside only being seen though the prison wire mesh covering the windows of the cells. Claustrophobic!

I haven't had time to watch the film yet however I would like to rate the seller. I was delighted at how quickly the DVD arrived it was well packed and was obviously new as it is still in it's original packaging. I would certainly buy from this seller again if opportunity arose.

Excellent film that was not widely advertised. I only came across it on Amazon by accident. For anyone requiring further information on the Hunger Strike from a dramatic point of view, this is ideal.

At last! A great account of life for Irish political prisoners. Nearly there with accuracy and disclosure of what it was like. Some good acting as well as some bad but better than the more recent film Hunger which although shows accurately the violent manner they were treated and no wash policy is actually a pretty poor protrayal of Bobby Sands.
