A Belfast Story (2013)
Monday 20th January 2014
What is peace? Is it when the bullets stop or the wounds heal? Starring Colm Meaney (Con Air, Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa, Layer Cake), A Belfast Story, released on DVD and Blu-Ray by Kaleidoscope Home Entertainment on 20th January 2014, explores life after terrorism.
Set in a city which has weathered hundreds of years of hatred, 30 years of bombs, and a war without winners, just victims. A new era brings new risks. There is peace, but that can also be deadly. Colm Meaney stars as a man weary of doing right. Times are changing, car bombs are less common and terrorists find themselves out of work, but old habits die hard. And while most go quietly into the night, he must find the few who won t comply.
Haunted by his own past failures, he knows that he may only get one last chance to repeat the same mistake, and this time, the blood will be on his hands. When a series of murders awaken dormant memories, many fear the worst. A greying assassin has stopped walking his son to school, purely precautionary. And his old comrades are also refusing to die gracefully. Someone is laying plans for the future, but first they must secure the present.
Gripping characters, fiercely intelligent action, and deadly consequences, A Belfast Story is a film about the passing of a way of life and the dangers that brings, because in Ireland, someone always has to buy the last round.
