The Wind that Shakes the Barley...
In all fairness political movement pictures are certainly not my favourite film genre...yet I found this quite captivating/ moving. The Irish accents were very strong so I was forced to concentrate to understand each work spoken for the first 1/3 of the movie. Cillian Murphy is an extremely talented actor and was very convincing in his role as the Irish rabal rouser during the 1920's. A bit shocking that this was the big winner at Cannes (but then again I thought last years L'Enfant was not even close to worthy of that title).
