A worthy film that is both too long and too short.

This is a long film. This can be forgiven for a film that has both historical significance and contemporary relevance. However, for this film the balance of the story is wrong: there is too much time on the context of the massacre, and not enough time on afterwards. What would I cut - some of the musical preparations. The audience does not need to see so much music practice on the moors. What would I add: more funerals, perhaps a sequence where they blend into each other, scenes showing what little effect the massacre had. In terms of acting and production values there is little to criticise, though some of the distant backdrops could be spotted. My overall feeling is that the story needs telling, but that this rendition risks losing a significant part of its audience, and thus the message.

Slow historical drama. A play within a film

A slow work up to the massacre. Incredible massacre scene. Would have like more on the aftermath as the film ended abruptly. Overlong I thought.

The 1819 Tiananmen Square

This is the first review I've ever done, but was moved to do so by some reviews that I have read on here since watching the film. So apologies to you experts, but here's my tuppenceworth. On the down side, a bit overlong, could have been a bit less wordy and faster paced. But, I left the cinema with the same feeling that I did in the early 70s after seeing Soldier Blue: stunned by the brutality of "the authorities" over the disenfranchised. Forensic in its drama/documentry approach and absolutely true to events (I have since checked various historical sources). This is what happens when people feel they lack a voice and does resonate with today's UK. I thought the lighting was superb and the epic, grand scale setting rare in a UK film. A must watch for teenagers who will not have heard of this event in history at school.
