  • ‘What a remarkable film, 'A Terrible Beauty'. The Irish language with sub-titles, the even-handed portrayal of both sides, the documentary style with the personal stories and the archive film footage and the close-up horror of death. It was gripping - without the 'Hollywood' style 'glamorising' of war.’ Ann Towey, Irish Diaspora Foundation.

  • A Terrible Beauty is a measured and very impressive docu-drama. The unobtrusive English narration is by Peter Coonan (Fran the Man from Love/Hate), but a particularly effective way of telling the story is to have the actors, in character, tell the tales of the people they portray: the testimonies are taken from a wide range of sources and give a voice to the vivid human drama. Indeed, the dramatic reconstructions in A terrible beauty set the bar high for the documentaries that are bound to follow over the next few years.
