Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Tue Dec 4, 2012, 05:13 PM

Has anyone else seen "The Wind that Shakes the Barley"?

I had limited knowledge of the Irish revolution, so this was educational for me, but boy was it hard to watch.

Just curious how others may have reacted to it.

The Wind That Shakes the Barley
2006TV-142hr 7m

As political tensions brew in early 1920s Ireland, brothers Damien and Teddy (Cillian Murphy and Padraic Delaney) abandon their civilian lives and take up arms to liberate their country from the oppressive "Black and Tan" squads of Britain. Winner of the Palme d'Or at the 2006 Cannes Film Festival, Ken Loach's provocative drama examines a microcosm of civil war in Cork, Ireland. Liam Cunningham co-stars.

5. That movie actually was physically painful to watch.

Lot's to think about. They became the thing they hated. Every war starts as a class war, and class wars are created by bullies. To me, all war is bullying stemming from greed.
