A Field in England (2013)

If you like your 'war' films full of bish-bash-bosh then this isn't a film for you.

This is a film by Ben Wheatley (who is perhaps slightly more famous for doing J.G. Ballard's "High Rise" starring Tom Hiddleston).

Shot in monochrome, the film follows a small, disparate group of individuals who have fallen off the edge of a battle. But not deserters! They are going for a pint.


En route to the pub they stop and eat a mushroom stew, some of which have, shall we say magical properties.

They then set off to pull a rope, have a major group dynamic change, hunt for some treasure, and...

...but that would be telling.

Very sweary, some nudity.

An interesting film, I mean 'interesting' in a good way. So if you like your films more arthouse than Hollywood then you might enjoy this film.
