I first saw this film, when it first came out back in the 80's. Ireland was still very much a backwater in those days and Irish actors had yet to make it to the A list in Hollywood. So to see an Irish film on the big screen was a novelty. It wore off quickly, It still comes across as very amateur, some of it is still cringworthy. Sometimes it feels as if the actors are straight out of acting school despite having actors such as Gabriel Byrne, who in fairness carries off his character with aplomb and who was still very much a household name in those days. Back then I thought of it as mediocre, now this film is embarrassing. Interesting, only, for the views of preboom Dublin and the soundtrack.
