Movie Info

Stuart Urban's war film An Ungentlemanly Act transpires during the first few hours and days of the Falkland Islands War. Ian Richardson portrays the political head of the Falklands, who, surprised by the invasion by Argentineans, focuses on getting his wife to a secure location just as much as he does on protecting his citizens. Major Mike Norman (Bob Peck) leads an elite group of soldiers in combat against the enemy. Meanwhile, the citizens of the islands discover how their previously placid lives have been altered by the beginning of the war. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi

Audience Reviews for An Ungentlemanly Act


Detailing the beginning af the Falklands conflict from the viewpoints of the Marine garisson and the islanders this is a very typically old British production, whimsical, factual, modest, determined and fatalistic much mirroring the very old British character of the islands and islanders. The tragedy of the conflict is a clear theme but the most entertaining feature is the relationship between the highly professional Royal Marine garrison and the, apparently, slightly eccentric locals with much humour in the face of imminent disaster occurring - as a side note, I believe that some locals complained that they were made to look a bit TOO eccentric almost to the point of comic relief. In my opinion this production strikes a pleasing balance between unbiased reporting of the facts and entertainment - a quality which is rare in film and TV these days. The cast and performances are excellent and it is very well shot - much of it in the challenging location of the Falkland Islands. Generally great entertainment and required viewing for anyone interested in the conflict.
