    Nikki Adams

    A defining piece of British cinematography. This is a brutal depiction of one man's mission to avenge his brother; yet amoungst the violence, the film is strangely touching. A word of warning: this film is not for the faint hearted! The violence is graphic and cold, but more than this; this film is psychologicallty chilling; not because of any big Hollywood style special effects; but because of the strange oxymoronic feelings that it provokes: brutal-tenderness, angry-serenity and satisfied-angst! A real Britsh masterpiece that will leave you with a very bitter taste in your mouth!

A blend of horror, the supernatural, comedy and social realism. Richard (Paddy Considine) has always protected his simple-minded younger brother, Anthony (Tony Kebbell), but when Richard leaves his rural Midlands' village to join the army, Anthony is taken in by Sonny (Gary Stretch), a vicious local drug dealer, and his gang of thugs. Anthony becomes the gang's pet and it amuses them to bully him and corrupt his innocence. Seven years later Richard returns for revenge.

Please note this is a region 2 DVD and will require a region 2 (Europe) or region Free DVD Player in order to play. Two brothers return to the home town they left years previously. Richard, the elder, is strong and purposeful. Anthony is the younger, more hesitant, keen to mimic the actions of the sibling he reveres. As the brothers set up camp in the hills overlooking the town, the local crew of small-time drug dealers begin to question their return. One by one they are tracked down by Richard as he embarks on a terrifying quest for revenge as a brother's love sparks calculated violent retribution.
