a great little gem of a movie
this is a rare thing indeed, a little gem. a perfectly formed indie film made by what looks like first timers all round. set in a not too grand little pub in the irish part of london, this is a kinda cheers english/irish style. with a believable and likeable bunch of characters, a slight plot about the barman's last week, before he moves onto greater things. it has a warmth and charm thsat is a welcome change from the usual round of violence and nasty characters we see in so many films today. it is beautifully acted and scripted and directed with a firm and sure touch. miles and miles better than the very average and cliched fat greek wedding, with a wonderful feel good ending. check it out if it comes your way.
