Ken Loach United Kingdom, 1990

Bilouaustria's rating of the film Hidden Agenda

Ken Loach won the Jury Prize at Cannes 1990 doing his thing : a political and emotional film that leaves you tormented with this feeling of injustice. The explosive situation in Northern Ireland was never so well examined and this, disguised as a crime story, has a documentary feel. Loach´s camera disappears behind his story and characters (great cast as usual). No fancy directing in here but plain good writing.
