Mapmaker

In this scenic 2001 thriller from Irish director Johnny Gogan, a cartographer (Brian F. O'Byrne) comes to a town on the border between Ireland and Northern Ireland to prepare a tourist map for the local heritage society. In the course of his survey he finds a corpse, that of an alleged informer executed by the IRA, and soon finds his own life in danger as he is unwittingly drawn into the sectarian intrigues simmering just below the surface of the community. While not above cliche—stare downs in the pub, the headstrong local lass (Susan Lynch) who falls for the hero—the picture works both as a whodunit and an insightful look at a divided community. 93 min.
