Review

Made for Channel Four, but shown with great success at the London Film Festival, this Frontroom Workshop Production deals with a dramatic and provocative situation in Northern Ireland in an unsensational but highly effective fashion. Piecing his film together in a fragmented but skilful way, director John Davies makes the most of the tension (and unexpected humour) that emanates from the subject - the death of a girl from a British soldier's bullet while a film crew is making a documentary there.
