    Whilst in Asda today I copped Tumbledown on DVD.So I bought it.Have'nt watched it yet so I'm after your opinions as to if it's a good film.I may have seen it when it came out,not sure.Obviously I'll make up my own mind but not being Infantry,I'd like your views,particulary from the Old Sweat who were in at the time.
    Cheers guys.
  2. the movie was highly thought of at the time and i remember watching it as a 13 yeasr old or so and enjoying it a lot too. So critic and 13 yo agree...
  3. Very good.

    Controversial at the time because of the issue of treatment of returning veterans.

    Seems nothing has changed.
  4. A damn good performance by Colin Firth. Very much captured the essence of squaddie humour when making light of his injuries.

    Some quite harrowing scenes of his reaction after the fact to his experiences. Well worth a watch.
  5. Contains actual footage of the individuals head wounds aswell. Pretty grim stuff.
