The Wind That Shakes the Barley by Ken Loach( Visual )

7 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 1,174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ireland, 1920. Damien O'Donovan is leaving for London for an internship, until the dreaded Black and Tans attack his hurling mates, killing one for not speaking English. Thus sidetracked by the Irish War for Independence, Damien is convinced by his brother Teddy to throw his lot in with the IRA. Damien is a purist, an idealist, and therefore marked for a tragic destiny, while Teddy is a fatefully pragmatic politician. These differences between the brothers propel the film through its terrible final act, as the signing of Anglo-Irish Treaty establishes the Irish Free State, splits the Republican movement, and unleashes the Irish Civil War

Irlanda, 1920. A discapito di un brillante futuro come medico in Inghilterra, Damien decide di unirsi al fratello Teddy nella vittoriosa lotta contro l'egemonia britannica.

Damien e Teddy, una volta uniti dagli stessi ideali, si troveranno divisi su fronti opposti. (laFeltrinelli.it)
