    Outstanding performances all round, beautifully filmed and edited, with a screenplay and OST that complete a magical experience. See it in a theater. There are Academy Awards all round or no justice in this world.

    Life is lonely and good friends are hard to come by on a small island off the coast of Ireland. Hanging on to family and friends is a matter of life and death. When his best friend Colm (Brendan Gleeson) "divorces" him so that he will have space to create something lasting with his music, Pádraic (Colin Farrell) desperately tries to get him back. It features bleak landscapes, funny Irish characters, and dialog that sounds like music. It seems like a good fit for the stage.

    Heavy and dark movie but excellent acting, beautiful scenery and very moving. Very glad to have seen this.
  • Rating: 1.5 out of 5 stars
    Poor story line, gratuitous pointless deaths of an innocent animal and of an endearing young character, wooden acting, threatened violence towards a dog, scenes of fingers being chopped off - all with absolutely no deeper meaning whatsoever. What a waste of a film resource. However, lovely scenery and sailing craft but I should have walked out.

    Very slow moving and depressing
  • Rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars
    Loved the acting, the characters, the beautiful scenery, the Irish music and witty jargon. But was not expecting just how depressing it would be. And it certainly didnt end as I expected either. But it was well done and still recommend.

  • Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars
    HahahahahaaWAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!! That is me laughing and then bursting into ugly tears at the end. Me. Bawling over Colin Farrell, because he is that good. I mean, obviousy, Brendan Gleeson is. Everyone is. The animals give beautiful performances. It's just so heartbreaking! Gleeson's character destroys the purity of Farrell's, and UGH. WAHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!

    Soul-touching movie with stellar performances and beautiful scenes which visits one of humanity's oldest problems: fear of death. You're in for a treat.
