Set against the backdrop of the Irish War of Independence (and the subsequent civil war), THE WIND THAT SHAKES THE BARLEY constructs a conventional familial melodrama around a framework of political monologues. In other words, it's a Ken Loach film. This one stands out primarily due to the fascinating historical setting which, to be frank, allows for easier digestion of the more radical concepts in Loach's immersive agitprop.

In typical Loach fashion this is a starkly political film, but one which focuses on the characters first, showing them as agents of the politics and particularly giving a very personal view of the events of the film. "A film about the Irish civil war" may be the easiest way to describe it, but it's really more about the people and their passions and frustrations, and successes and failures, within that context. Really well done and some of it really lingers with you.

Certainly of varied quality, but if politically you think this should have been less "one-sided" and "not so black-and-white," fuck off.

So at one point the movie looks like it coming to an end and I'm thinking "these were some of the longest two hours of my life" and then I looked at the timer and realized it had only been a little more than one hour.

While this is a film about Ireland, it's about something more elusive than that; it's about "freedom", whatever that word might mean. More specifically, I'd say this film is about compromise. And when the question of compromise occurs, often there is a divide between two camps. Camp 1: Those that believe in ideas; and Camp 2: those that don't and decide to settle for less instead. And, as is often the case in revolutions, the tension between these two camps leads to murder; brother vs brother.

(spoilers) A powerful, tightly written drama about the traumatic splintering of a community and a family over political disagreements. Thge film making is tough, sinewy without being showy-every scene crackles with motion and energy-and the writing keeps the character motivations in clear focus. The way Damien's execution near then end of the film is made to echo Chris Reilly's near the beginning is particularly effective.
