  • 4.1
An unlikely friendship develops between a kidnapped British soldier and his captor, an IRA volunteer named Fergus. When the hostage-taking ends up going horribly wrong, Fergus escapes and heads to London, where he seeks out and begins dating the soldier's lover, a hairdresser named Dil, who knows nothing about Fergus's IRA background. But there are some things about Dil that Fergus doesn't know either.

Somehow less than perfect, but excellent character development and terrific performances by Rhea,

Bernard and Whitaker. A novel twist to a straight forward plot makes all the difference. Love finds

a way through it's complex matrix of imperfect circumstances, human needs and desires. Good pace,

and for me no dead spots; and effective humor to fit nicely with a plot twist, which today would seem

dated, even perhaps laughable. Still, very good film making.
