This looks quite good on the trailer. And it's based on a true story. I don't know if anyone outside Britain will get it but it might be worth a look?

"Wipers" from the mispronunciation of "Ypres," yes?

Looks interesting.

Yes. It was the soldiers' nickname for Ypres.

"Something like Punch, but with jokes." That makes me want to see this. Maybe it'll come on BBC-America.

Just watched it and if you get the chance, watch it.

It's extremely good. And funny and sad and tragic and just really really good.

Watched it last night. Superb. Loved the 'being more offensive' bit. :D

Well hell, I don't see anyway for me to check that out here until it goes on sale. Shame, I've started reading up on WWI recently and would love to watch this, but I'll keep an eye out to see if it coms available here someway soon.

Definitely watch it if you get chance, Johnny. One of the best things I've seen in a while.
