Irish drama, starring Gillian Anderson and Robert Carlyle. Young Donal (Tyrone Mckenna) lives with his single mother Kate (Anderson) in Belfast, and works after school at a greyhound trainer's to help make ends meet. The trainer (played by Ken Stott) agrees to let Donal keep one of the dogs if he can train him to win three successive races. At the same time, a mysterious figure from Kate's past, known only as 'O' (Carlyle) has returned, and as Donal gets closer to O, and as the dog trainer goes back on his deal, the young boy learns some harsh lessons about life.

With such an array of fine and accomplished actors it comes as no surprise to see that the characters are realistic and the gritty nature of the subject matter is shown. Andersons Belfast accent was a pleasantly well executed surprise. However on the subject of executions... as an animal lover I was horrifed to see the graphic portrail of violence against the dogs that was sadly necessary to portray the real life cruelty of what goes on in this "sport".
Don't watch this if you are squeemish but this film is good in that it brings home to you the truth about what happens to these poor defenceless creatures.
If you enjoyed Kes, then you will enjoy this. In fact it pretty much is Kes with greyhounds.
lad (Tyrone McKenna) who works under the watchful eye of Greyhound dog
owner (Ken Stott) in kennels and at racing tracks.
A reasonably straight forward real life drama with no-nonsense
attitude. It might possibly narrow it's audience due to the strong
Irish accent, but this is one of the many important ingredients that
make, what could be a very average film - really good.
Some inspired British style camera work together with a Dub-Celt
soundtrack really give this film it's feel. And it all seems plausible,
but not predictable. What does work particularly well is how each
character and sub plot seem carefully balanced with their own
importance in the storyline, nothing is wasted or filling time.
Natural performances from all the small cast and a surprisingly good
combo of Carlyle & Anderson adds a close personal feel and keeps this
story easy to contain.
If you don't mind a bit of swearing and kids smoking then this film is
great for all ages and generations.
