4.0 out of 5 stars Heart wrenching 9 Aug 2011
Format:DVD
A deeply moving film showing the unreported and unseen side of warfare; that is, what happens when these highly trained killing machines go home and have to switch off their training and reintegrate to normal family life.
Joanna Froggat is excellent and well supported by a strong cast - having the soldier in question a female brings all sorts of other issues into the film as well.
To say this film is enjoyable is not accurate as with many war films (such as The Deer Hunter) it is disturbing to watch but it is a film that needs to made and seen and you will be glad you did.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Indie Brit Film in a Long Time 19 Nov 2011
By Tim Kidner TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
I'd recorded this from Sky Movies Premier, where it sat in the graveyard shift, onto my provider's box. Normally I watch such films whilst doing computer work.

After only a few minutes I'd surrendered to the film. It had grabbed me by the throat and wouldn't let go. It looked serious, as was its subject matter and the acting being of a seriously high standard too.

We've all seen The Fourth of July and many of the others that attempt to spotlight the after scars of war. Supremo Brit, now Hollywood, director Paul Greengrass made his first feature 'Resurrected' in 1989 starring David Thewlis and was about a British soldier dealing with his demons around the time of the Falklands conflict. Never heard of it? It remains as well known as this one currently does (hardly at all).

The equivalent here is a young female soldier just come back from Iraq and who had witnessed an innocent Iraqi child get killed. The same age roughly as her own little girl and unavoidably, as the flashbacks show, the parallels are obvious. Her partner, an aggressive, paranoid and volatile soldier, also having seen action in Iraq and father of their little girl, gives Suzy (an excellent and film, but not TV, newcomer) Joanne Froggatt a REALLY hard time. Not just coping with local thieves but they also with the well - and not so well - meaning friends and relatives, who are either stifling, or insensitive.

The cracks start to show; a fellow serviceman Suzy worked alongside with on the front line is threatened by Mark (the partner - an also excellent Mark Raido) when he, after an invitation from Suzy, is found drinking beer at their home and chatting to her when Mark comes back in a foul mood one night.

5.0 out of 5 stars IN OUR NAME [DVD] 25 Jan 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I LOVED IT, CAME IN PLENTY OF TIME, PACKAGED WITH CARE AND CONSIDERATION. PERFECT FOR GIFTS AND TO WATCH. I WOULD DEFINATLY RECOMMEND THIS AS IT SHOWS HOW HARD IT CAN BE TO GET USED TO HOME LIFE FOR SOME SOILDERS COMING BACK FROM WAR.
