'Hedd Wyn' is a 1992 Welsh anti-war biopic. Ellis Humphrey Evans, a farmer's son and poet living at Trawsfynydd in the Meirionydd countryside of upland Wales, competes for the most coveted prize of all in Welsh Poetry - that of the chair of the National Eisteddfod, which in August 1917 was due to be held in Birkenhead (one of the rare occasions when it was held in England). After submitting his entry, under his bardic name "Hedd Wyn" ("Blessed Peace") Evans later departs from Meirionydd by train to join the Royal Welsh Fusiliers in Liverpool, despite his initial misgivings about the war. Ellis is sent to fight in the trenches of Flanders. 'Hedd Wyn' was the first Welsh-language film to be nominated for an Oscar.

American Graffiti was to the early 60's, was what Dazed & Confused was to the 70's, was what Fast Times at Ridgemont High was to the 80's, and was what Remember the Daze was to the late 90's. I was class of '86 and there is something that just rings true to me in all these movies.

Just a dull, tedious, surprisingly inoffensive piece of faux snuff that makes "Trash Humpers" look like "Gravity"-level production values by visual comparison. Quite possibly the worst film I've ever seen.But I watched all 71 minutes of it, so go ahead and judge if you must.I came out less alive than when I'd entered. Which I guess is true of any movie (LOL because time/space) but it's felt especially here. So thanks, Fred Vogel. (0/100)

Bruger ca. 3 min. paa at saette plottet op, og saa koerer det bare derfra. Ikke helt uhyggelig nok til at vaere topklasse, men har nogle habile sekvenser - og saa maa jeg erkende at filmens scarecrows ser temmelig ubehagelige ud.
