«The Wind That Shakes the Barley» is a 2006 Ken Loach film set during the Irish War of Independence (1919–1921) and the Irish Civil War (1922–1923). A sympathetic look at Republicans in early 20th century Ireland, and two brothers who are torn apart by anti-Brit rebellion. Ireland, 1920. Damien and Teddy are brothers. But while the latter is already the leader of a guerrilla squad fighting for the independence of his motherland, Damien, a medical graduate of University College, would rather further his training at the London hospital where he has found a place. However, shortly before his departure, he happens to witness atrocities committed by the ferocious Black and Tans and finally decides to join the resistance group led by Teddy. The two brothers fight side by side until a truce is signed. But peace is short-lived and when one faction of the freedom-fighters accepts a treaty with the British that is regarded as unfair by the other faction, a civil war ensues, pitting Irishmen against Irishmen, brothers against brothers, Teddy against Damien. Widely praised, «The Wind That Shakes the Barley» film won the Palme d'Or at the 2006 Cannes Film Festival. Loach's biggest box office success to date, the film did well around the world and set a record in Ireland as the highest-grossing Irish-made independent film ever.

Very well made!01 August 2011

A truly good war drama, covering a conflict that is not widely used in cinema, making this plot somewhat original. It is an interesting film, that captivates the audience after 15 minutes and hooks you till the end, focusing on a deep dramatic conflict. Well acted, interesting directing and a... more

A lot of yelling...10 March 2010

I liked this movie but there was an inordinate amount of yelling in almost every scene. It was a sad movie but showed great loyalty and determination for freedom. Many fine actors in this. Because of the accent you\'ll need to listen carefully to what is being said. I loved the Irish speech... more
