Tom (Freddie Cunliffe), an alienated 15 year old boy, finds the that opportunity for close observation of his father, after their move from London to rural Devon and the birth of a new baby, reveals a world run through with darkness and pain. Tom is unable to reconcile the life he''s known what he sees with his own eyes, and blames his 18 year old sister, Jessie (Lara Belmont). Both Tom and Jessie struggle to find some path to truth and sanity as the human forces around them work in polarity with their isolation to either assist them, or destroy them.

TriviaGoofsShowing all 5 itemsAt a public screening of this movie during the 1999 Toronto International Film Festival, one viewer was so upset and devastated that he rose to his feet and shouted that he couldn''t take any more, then headed for the exit, intending to pull the fire alarm. ''Tim Roth'', who was in attendance, intercepted him at the door, and it took 20 minutes of intense conversation to calm the man down.

According to director ''Tim Roth'' the bunker scene was so difficult to film that the sound man almost ruined a take by crying into his microphone. Ray Winstone also found acting the scene upsetting and nearly left the production because of it.

Tilda Swinton had just given birth to twins before starring in "The War zone", which was helpful for the film, where the display of the bodies play an important role, and her character had also just given birth.

A newly updated and fully revised 20th Anniversary Edition of The War Zone (novel) was published in 2009, including both the original British and American opening chapters, an Afterword by Tim Roth and a Diary of the Making of the Film by Alexander Stuart.

Despite the fact that this was shot with J-D-C anamorphic lenses, "Filmed in Panavision" is listed in the end credits.
