6/10: glad i saw it, but everything was disappointing
Saturday, December 7, 2019

Im fresh home from the cinema, and i felt a strong urge to review this movie. i made an IMDB account just for this!the camerawork threw me off for about 90 percent of the movie. i didn't understand it at all and constantly tried to keep up. i couldn't focus on the dialogue- because there would be about 30 unnecessary camera angle changes in every shot! this would have worked for a little-dialogue moody film, but certainly not for something that labels itself a comedy. i'll paint this as an example of a scene which just wasn't funny, in, again, a comedy movie. (this scene stuck out in my mind, but certainly wasn't the only wasted potential in this movie. it was littered with this type of thing). Louis is anxious about getting into the hearse, and says hes not. Daniel says he'll have to, and Louis says no. Daniel says they...

10/10: A cardigan of a film, in the nicest possible way
Monday, May 25, 2020

This is the sweetest film I've seen in ages! It's funny, warm, quirky, action packed. It's strong cast includes Colm Meaney, Jim Norton (The bishop in Fr Ted), Niamh Algar (Calm with Horses), Michael Huisman (Game of Thrones), Samuel Bottomley (Wolf Hall), Eleanor OBrien. Written & directed by Irish newcomer, Aoife Crehan. It has a constant stream of crazy comedic capers, which include a car being driven from West Cork's Inchydoney Island to Antrim's Ratlin Island with a cardboard coffin tied to its roof rack, a Garda chase, two funerals (tho we're not weeping), a hold up, a stand off...etc etc! For me, the nub of the film is the most endearing portrayal of everyday life of witty teenager, Louis, who has autism It is very real, yet light and natural. Boldly written, yet exquisitely tender and funny. Wow! Esther McCarthy, film critic on Newtalk's Sean Moncrieff Show highly recommends it, describing it...

6/10: If you have time, and liked the trailer.. maybe watch it at a higher speed
Wednesday, October 28, 2020

It's certainly not the best movie I've seen this year, but it has a lot of heart in it, and lots of messages and lessons to give in a well-crafted package. And while it lasts around 1 hour and 40 minutes, it felt longer to me.. like a tv series of sorts. I was half-way there when I started to wonder how much was left. It's quite a bit of drama! But somehow felt "childish".. yet very realistic. The characters are not those you'd easily fall in love with, and their interactions are not as memorable. And some of their choices are questionable, but it's that sort of film that makes me wonder how I'd react if I was in their shoes.Still! It's a plot I've never seen before.. and got "out of hand" at times, which I appreciate, because it's better to be surprised than bored.Just...

6/10: a ''dead''comedy/drama
Tuesday, March 31, 2020

Its an emotional, hidden gun hormonal and autistic irish attempt to make the necrolian parts of our life set under the spotlight of humour. its solitude and brotherhood and womanhood, its funeral fugitives and fish&chip shop armed robberies, so if you can make sense of irish dialect, then be my guest, i should really had some cc's to lean on.its a rather dead comedy though, i giggled a bit, and hung on till the end due to some rather good acting, and wishing a certain coffin to blow of a car and some nice music here and there.its for sure a fact that the predemented grumpy old man will forget this flick pretty fast anyway, because it lacks the spikes a comedy shall have and the speed of action are low and the drama story not so good. its a provincial made product and irish film have had better films made than this. but its a...

9/10: Hilarious, entertaining and touching
Friday, April 17, 2020

I loved this quirky road movie. As with lots of fiction, once I suspended shades of disbelief (as when the elderly Padraig Murphy, who is transporting his dead brother on the plane from the USA to Ireland for burial, dies on the plane, but before he names the passenger next to him, coincidentally called Daniel Murphy (Michael Huisman), as his next of kin), I relaxed into the mould of the film. The acting is very good throughout. Daniel's "brother" Louis (Samuel Bottomley) sensitively portrays an autistic personality and the plot is peppered with comic vignettes including the bonny and clyde scene with the impetuous Mary (Niamh Algar) and the toy gun at a take away. There are magical landscape scenes along the way, some probably done with drones. Overall a hilarious, entertaining and touching movie
