Mark of Cain, The


UK 2007, 95 minutes
Dir. Marc Munden
Rating: [R16]
Genres: Action/Adventure / War, Hostages & Terrorism


Aroview: Based on real first-person accounts, this fictional British war drama explores the effects of the Iraq conflict on two young soldiers who can escape neither the military nor the memories of their front-line actions, once back home.

Convincing portrayals, and impressively and realistically re-creating the mess that is Iraq, the film won Amnesty International’s ‘Movies That Matter’ prize. Veers toward preachy at times, but for the most part, a brutal, honest depiction of the war machine and how it can affect ordinary people on a tour of duty.
