Probably in my top three favourite films
I like The Quiet Man so much that it features in my top three favourite films. This incidentally is alongside quite disparate films as Blade Runner and The Shawshank Redemption.

This is nothing to do with direction, acting or even location but simply because it feels so good!

Yes it is a simple story but it's amusing, very easy to watch and leaves you with a warm glow and a smile. Also the building of the "diddly diddly music" approaching the fight sequence is a delight.

That's all I need from a film that does not pretend to be anything more than a story.
