  1. Harriehhh's rating of the film The Wind that Shakes the Barley

    Besides I, Daniel Blake – which I loved and highly recommend – I've found it really difficult to sit through almost everything else I've seen from Loach. Perhaps you need to be more interested in early 20th century Irish history than I was here, but The Wind That Shakes The Barley just seemed dull, uninspired, and didn't move me like I would've expected.

  3. Alexander Dunkelberger's rating of the film The Wind that Shakes the Barley

    A sweeping saga of Ireland’s fight for independance, with a standout performance from Cillian Murphy, and some effective neorealist techniques. It’s a wonder a story this dramatic could be displayed and composed in such a realistic way.

  4. Nachtreich's rating of the film The Wind that Shakes the Barley

  5. FISCHER's rating of the film The Wind that Shakes the Barley

    Sobriété, efficacité, émotion, dans une percutante dénonciation, limpide, lucide et politiquement assumée d'un dramatique épisode de l'histoire irlandaise... www.cinefiches.com

  6. Gabriele Mariotti's rating of the film The Wind that Shakes the Barley

    Reading the real facts on Wikipedia is more entertaining.

  8. Thomas Dods's rating of the film The Wind that Shakes the Barley

    Really great story telling, in regards to the personal as much as the wider political context of the time.

  10. Ayinde Anderson's rating of the film The Wind that Shakes the Barley

    Great portrayl of an inner town clash between the authority and the people. Predictable ending, but still powerful nonetheless.

  11. smndvdcl's rating of the film The Wind that Shakes the Barley

    A Loachian classic and rightful winner of the 2006 Palme d'Or.

  12. cinegeek.de's rating of the film The Wind that Shakes the Barley

    (...) Wer den Titel des Films googelt stösst auf einen revolutionären Song von Robert Dwyer Joyce aus dem späten 18. Jahrhundert. Der Song handelt davon, dass der Wille eines Einzigen das Schicksal von Generationen verändern kann und diese Kraft spüren wir in Loachs Film(...)

  16. Ghostman's rating of the film The Wind that Shakes the Barley

    Astonishingly powerful, Ken Loach makes cinematic fireworks out of nothing. Puts most of the 'historical epics' to shame.

  19. Amandio Filipe Moura's rating of the film The Wind that Shakes the Barley

    Loach casts an excellent social focus on Ireland's troubled history (4.4/5)

  20. stair_well's rating of the film The Wind that Shakes the Barley

    Occasionally flat acting. But some unforgettable depictions of recent history

  21. ihor's rating of the film The Wind that Shakes the Barley

    As with almost any Loach movie politics with a sharp Marxist interpenetration is dominate that too often, unfortunately, is overdone. The second half of the film stands out in the Irish Civil with brother fighting brother, and the practicality of revolution questioned somewhat. Still although it is tender it sometimes feels like cliched revolutionary romanticism.

  22. Lynch/Fellini's rating of the film The Wind that Shakes the Barley

    One of the weakest films to win the Palme d'Or and am shocked it unanimously won... this was a bland motion picture that felt incredibly by the numbers... disappointing!

  23. Lthm2's rating of the film The Wind that Shakes the Barley

    Ken Loach didn't care a bit about style and it really threatens the story's goal.

  24. Vincente Oristivar's rating of the film The Wind that Shakes the Barley
