The tale of a group of soldiers in WWI Europe, including 16 year old Private Charlie Shakespeare (BAFTA winner Jamie Bell from Billy Elliot) are stranded in a trench caught between the Germans and who knows what. As fear, claustrophobia and exhaustion set in the men start to turn on each other and, if they don’t get out quick it looks like a bloody death is the only thing they can be certain of.
Pathé Distribution Limited are all set to release Michael J. Bassett’s disturbing tail. Although not listed as a Special Edition – the disc features 5:1 sound, 16:9 picture, 3 Commentaries (including two film commentary by Bassett and the main players, and a technical commentary by the director alone), making of featurette, deleted and alternate scenes, interviews, behind the scenes peeks and the obligatory theatrical trailer. If that isn’t a special edition I think some of the other companies should take a leaf out of Pathé’s book and buck their ideas up!
