A great movie

I never really like twists in the movies but this one was, for me, completely unexpected. It is really weird movie which cannot be classified and it is is Neil Jordan's best movie so far. The story was just really fascinating and so unexpected. The less you know about it, the more you will enjoy it. Definitely worth a look.

WatchMojo’s Top 10 Movie Plot Twists (10 movies items)

"In this flick, a guilt-ridden IRA terrorist falls for the girlfriend of the British soldier he helped kidnap before befriending, and ultimately felt responsible for killing. Though it seemed like it would delve into a straightforward, if not so honest romance, things took a decidedly hard turn. Namely, “she” was actually a “he”."

"The tearful and vengeful "interrogation" scene between a gun-toting Dil (Jaye Davidson) and IRA volunteer soldier Fergus (Stephen Rea), whom Dil had tied to his bed after finding out he had been complicit in the accidental death of his ex-lover - British soldier Jody (Forest Whitaker), as the song "The Crying Game" played on Dil's tape deck; Fergus told Dil that he loved him, would do anything for him and would never leave him - with Dil responding, as he laid his head on Fergus' chest/shoulder:"

thescriptlab's Top 10 Best Film Twists (10 movies items)

"The Crying Gameis a little Irish film that could. The only thing more surprising than its worldwide success, is its surprising plot twist. An IRA fighter, Fergus (Stephen Rea), holds a British soldier hostage. Despite their unlikely friendship, the situation goes horribly wrong. Fergus escapes, only to track down the British soldier’s girlfriend Dil (Jaye Davidson). The relationship between Fergus and Dil blossoms, due to Fergus’ guilt. However, just when the couple is about to heat things "
