Daniel Craig Collection: The Trench/Kiss and Tell
Enhance your purchase
Two top titles starring Daniel Craig (James Bond, Casino Royale, Quantum of Solace) who has become one of the most recognizable and celebrated actors today. Known for his intense character portrayals, you can see him in this exciting feature collection. Kiss And Tell - The difference between reality and fiction is blurred in this gripping thriller about a young undercover policewoman posing as a lonely heart to entice a confession from a man the police believe murdered his wife. As their rapport begins to grow, her relationship with one of her supervising officers, Matt Kearney (Daniel Craig), clouds her judgment. As Kearney investigates the case and the man he suspects of murder, frantic searches and striking new evidence bring about a truth he never expected. The Trench - The Trench tells the story of a group of young British soldiers in the summer of 1916 on the eve of the Battle of the Somme, the worst defeat in British military history. Against this ill-fated backdrop, the movie depicts the soldiers' experience as a mixture of boredom, fear, panic and restlessness, confined to a trench on the front lines. At the center of the troops is 17-year-old Billy Macfarlane (Paul Nicholls) who, alongside his older brother Eddie (Tam Williams), has volunteered for service. Like their fellow squad members, they are boys dressed as men. Their survival is in the hands of war-hardened Sergeant Winter (Daniel Craig) and bookish Lieutenant Harte (Julian Rhind-Tutt). However, when word comes that the squad will join the first wave of the attack, they all face an equal fate.

"The Trench" is a riveting and claustrophobic tale of life and death in the trenches of World War I. And again Mr. Daniel Craig brings something wonderful to the table as a hardened Sergeant who knows that he must keep his boys busy to keep them sane. It is a pleasure to watch him particularly in the "Jam" scene. The range of emotion he shows at the beginning of the scene when the boys can't see him as he eats from a jar of homemade jam sent by his wife is stunning and real, near tears he shoves the jam in his mouth as if to stuff down his impossible sorrow. Watch as this brilliant actor moves on to offer some jam to his superior officer. This is brilliant work by an actor who even in 1999 and early on in his career had a grasp of what it is to be a multi faceted human being and the talent to project that onto the screen. Daniel Craig is one of the best there is in world cinema.
The film is well worth seeing for these reasons and many more. At times very graphic and violent and still deeply touching and sad beyond the deepest wounds of war and the human heart.
With the second film here in this package we get a real treat in the form of "Kiss And Tell". To be honest I was not expecting much from the description of the film. Boy was I wrong. Here is a tightly wound mystery that kept me on the edge of my couch trying desperately not to reach for the remote to fast-forward out of the more chilling scenes. The suspense was that compelling. Mr. Craig shines in the role of a cop who is still in love with his colleague played by Rosie Rowell. (Miss Rowell also gives a compelling tight performance here.) He and the entire cast just give so much spark and excitement to this cat and mouse tale of murder in suburban England. I really was engrossed by this film, a wonderful surprise and a great addition to anyone's library that might be a fan of great acting, good stories, or Mr. Craig.
Both Films are Must See in my book.
For the drama lover they will enjoy Kiss and Tell.
