    Hi everyone.

    Please help me identify this film.

    A group of men in a brutal working party.

    They send money home.

    Not a war film.

    There is an awful scene where a deer comes into the camp...

    The men are determined to kill it and they surround the deer. Then they see how terrified the deer is and they realise how brutal they have become.

    Not the Deer Hunter!

    That's as much as I can remember.

    Anyone?

    Many thanks

    I think this is The River (1984):

    Hello Euryale

    Thanks for your reply, and the link.

    I've had a good look at the iMDb page and sadly I don't think this is it.

    This seems like a film about a family on a farm?

    I'm looking for one with a working party of men who are away from home.

    I also think 1984 is too late.

    I also can't find any mention of a pivotal scene with a deer in it...

    Can you let me know what makes you think it's this film? May be I'm missing something...?

    Best wishes

    Perfect, thank-you.

    Sorry, hadn't realised you'd replied, I don't seem to be getting notifications...

    Glad to have helped - I should have put up the book extract to begin with, rather than the link to the IMDB.
