The Irish in Film
A Complete List of Irish Films

 Title  I See a Dark Stranger
The central figure of this film is a young woman, Bridie, who is filled with hate for the British. Her father, who claimed to have fought with Sinn Fein during the Easter Rebellion, has instilled in her a fierce, if militant love for Ireland. Bridie is a complex mix of nieve farm girl and independent woman. When she comes of age she tries to join the IRA in Dublin, but ends up spying for the Germans in England during WII. But this is a British film putting a positive spin on all things British. What could be potentially a truly dark affair becomes light, even romantic at times. There is even a bit of comic relief including Irish/English culture clash and, not surprisingly, the traditional inept British officer. Link to reviews Click picture
