In the suburbs of Dublin, more than a dozen strangers find their paths colliding in sometimes violent, sometimes absurd ways in Intermission, the first feature from director John Crowley. Setting the chain of events in motion is Lehiff (Colin Farrell), a small-time crook whose most recent petty theft has him on the run from Jerry (Colm Meaney), a self-aggrandizing police detective who's even more full of himself now that he's being constantly trailed by a TV news documentary crew. Meanwhile, Lehiff's friend John (Cillian Murphy) is going though a trial breakup -- or… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The great thing about Intermission is that you barely have time to spot the gaps."
‑ Anthony Lane, New Yorker
"Intermission bursts with the energy of a documentary filmed on the run with a stolen camera."
‑ Carrie Rickey, Philadelphia Inquirer
""Intermission" is a bloke-and-smoke spin on "Love, Actually." It's for women seeking a romantic comedy that doesn't reduce relationships to cutesy-poo homilies. By adding shootouts and car chases, it's slso for guys who are just not that into goo, either."
‑ Nick Rogers,
"Dizzily paced and structured, the Irish import Intermission charms with a never-let-'em-see-you-sweat exuberance"
‑ Jay Antani, Los Angeles Alternative
"A well-acted and interesting dark comedy, but the convoluted writing becomes the big drawback."
‑ Jules Brenner, Cinema Signals
"Not real Irish, but the movie kind: the latest to stumble off the [John] Ford assembly-line."
‑ Geoff Pevere, Toronto Star
"Intermission is the first movie in ages to show us what Irish native Hollywood star Farrell is capable of."
‑ Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel
"A direção bem-humorada e a montagem ágil exploram bem o ótimo roteiro e o elenco impecável."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"...the performances keep things moving, even through some of the more superfluous moments."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"It doesn't add up to much profundity and tries too hard to be amusingly quirky."
‑ Jim Slotek, Jam! Movies
"Such are the dangers of teaching foreign cultures to yelp like Reservoir Dogs."
‑ Stephen Cole, Globe and Mail
"One of those films that should keep you entirely entertained but that disappears from memory almost immediately."
‑ Terry Lawson, Detroit Free Press
"A gritty Irish Love Actually. No, you heard right..."
‑ Oz,
"Una de esas que, al salir de la sala, te deja con la maravillosa sensación de haber disfrutado una buena película."
‑ Alex Ramirez, Cinenganos
"Attentive viewers will be rewarded with several intriguing story lines, a host of fine performances and a darn good time at the movies."
‑ Forrest Hartman, Reno Gazette-Journal
