Editorial Reviews

Niall Ó Faoláin and Fiona Ní Fhathaigh's film, Torann na dTonnta, tells the story of four fishermen aboard the fishing vessel 'An Naomh Garbhán' during WWII. The four men, desperate to feed their famlies during a time of rationing and overfishing enter dangerous waters where they find an Allied mine caught in their nets.

An incident at the end of a long and terrible war, it happened in neutral Ireland on May 2,1945, the day the Russians hoisted the flag over the Reichstag and news of Hitlers death swept acrosss Europe.

*Irish Language/English subtitle*

Scéal tragóideach é seo ó Niall Ó Faoláin & Fiona Ní Fhathaigh faoi
cheathrar iascairí a bhí ag iascaireacht ar bhoird an 'Naomh Garbáin'
le linn Chogadh Domhanda II. Bhí brú mór orthu bia a fháil, ag iascaireacht i
uisce chontúirteach, áit a fhaigheann siad mianeach sa líon.

Eachtra é seo a tharla ag deireadh chogadh fada uafásach. I tír neodrach,
Éire, ar 2 Bealtainne, 1945, an lá a chuir na Rúisigh an bhrat go h-ard os
cionn an Reichstag tar éis nuacht a fháil faoi bhás Hitler.

The item decription said it was for all regions. The dvd didn't work in my dvd player. I put it in my computer and it said it was regionally coded and couldn't play. I exchanged it the first time, the second copy they sent me didn't work either so I'm getting a refund.

Amazon should not be selling this as all regions and at the same time stating that the format is PAL. These are two incompatible statements as Amazon should know.

Taobh amuigh de sin, d'éirigh liom an scannán a chraoladh ar an ríomhaire. Clár teilifíse a mhair leath uair a chloig, leis an bhfírinne a rá, a bhí ann. Mar sin féin, is dóigh liom gurb é seo an chéad chlár ar chuala mé riamh a raibh canúint na Rinne lárnach ann. Bhí an chanúint soiléir go leor taobh amuigh de roinnt focal mar "dinnéar" mar shampla a raibh faumú aisteach ar na gutaí.

Tugaim 5 réalt ar an scannán ach ceann amháin do Amazon as an scannán seo a dhíol mar cheann atá oitiúnach do chuile réigiún.

Received my copy in the post yesterday and wached it last night. I have to say it provided a great insight into the lives of the ordinary local people of Ireland during WWII. A fantastic look back at how Ireland once was and how well the community responded in times of need. Highly recommend it.

This is a wonderful production and an excellent account of the untold tragedies of World War Two. Beautifully filmed and the soundtrack was a perfect complement. Should be included in school curriculum.

The film description should explain that this film is a documentary not a drama. No acting in this film. The interviewees tell a story of one incident in WWII. Interesting but not what I expected.
