And in contrast to the violent subject matter, there lurks a rather droll Scottish humour hidden away in this film. He then attempts to turn them both against each other, transpiring in much blood spilled, with Ferris caught up in the middle of the crossfire. The underrated actor shines, alongside Hannah, who is sinister and unpredictable in his role. A few years on and Ferris — now a young adult — finally gives in to his violent compulsions when he brutally stabs his tormentors, and the thrill felt when doing so gives him a rush like no other. There are also people involved even more villainous, which means we almost end up rooting for him, which seems somewhat unjust. Assembling a host of esteemed Scottish performers, Ray Burdis presents The Wee Man, a cinematic depiction of the real-life story of infamous gangster Paul Ferris. We are made to feel sorry for him, which therefore brings us closer to the character, allowing us more of an emotional investment to the overall story. Although being a well-made film, Burdis does seem a little too inclined to steer down the path of shock value, which is often less effective than simply insinuating it.
