The Wind That Shakes the Barley
1 why : I have choice The Wind That Shakes the Barley because is a 2006 Ken Loach film set during theirsh war of independence (1919–1921) and the Irish civil war (1922–1923). The film opens in 1920 as Damien O'Donovan (Cillian Murphy) with his brother Teddy (Padraic Delaunay) commands the local flying columm of the Irish Republican Army. Furthmore thisfilm won the Palme d'Or at the 2006 Cannes 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.

2 about director/mains actors: The film stars mostly Irish actors and was made by yhe famous British director Ken Loach. He succeeds in creating a spontaneous, realistic atmospherein scenes and many actors, from Dustin Hoffman and (Robert Duvall)to Robert Carlyle and Petter Mullan in My name is Joe and Bread and roses with Adrian Brody.

3 do you like this film: for me"The Wind that Shakes the Barley" is a fantastic film,and extremely apt given the current socio-economic climate in Ireland. We seem to be losing part of our heritage everyday, once again slave to foreign influences (both sides of the water) and willing to lose sight of our past to embrace the future.This is one of the better film in the categorie of realist war film that I have seen. It was extremely objective and a credit to Ken Loach for the accuracyof his research.For example when a group of I.R.A. men return from a successful battle and discover a farmhouse being attacked and destroyed by a group of British soldiers. The rebels, who have no munition left, are forced to look on, concealed in the bushes; they watch powerless as the farmhouse's inhabitants are abused. We watch along with the characters, just as helpless as they are.This sceneis very hard but is the reflect to the style of the film very intense . 4 does the film help me for understand the society : The film shows how the Black and Tans quickly gained a reputation for brutality and torture. They retaliated against any IRA attacks by punishing entire communities and murdering suspected IRA and Sinn Fein members or sympathizers.The Barley is a radical film about arevolutionary war and that therefore it is also a success as a radical work of art  . Ken Loach would be the first to agree that the last two propositions don’t always follow. The Wind That Shakes The Barley does have strong qualities – besides the fact that it makes an attempt to give a radical account of the development (1920-1923) and influence of an IRA Flying Column on the political divisions in a Corkvillage.On one level, it marks a reaction by some of the most unapologetic sections of the British ruling class regarding the bloody history of British imperialism in Ireland. It’s possible at the same time connected his film with Iraq, and drawn parallels with resistance to imperialist occupation there. The

reaction against the film reflects hostility towards any opposition to thisunbridled(pillage) imperialist plunder (dechainé).

5 short summary of the story : 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...
