WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Byrne is a hard man. A fixer. His journey through the ganglands of Glasgow’s East End has taken him from teenage truant to petty criminal to gangster and to prison. The Hard Man is an intense and stylized exploration of notorious gangster turned artist Jimmy Boyle’s early life and of the cult of male violence on the streets of Glasgow - a world dominated by struggle and brutality, success and failure, victims and perpetrators.
