Intermission (2003) Poster

A variety of losers in Dublin have harrowingly farcical intersecting stories of love, greed and violence.

| Good but not Great
Some movies are great and some just stink, and then there are some that fall in the middle somewhere. Intermission would fall into this category. I wouldn't necessarily call it a good movie, but it's not bad either. I was impressed by the way director John Crowley was able to maintain a somewhat coherent storyline despite having so many interwoven characters. The problem with most ensemble pieces is that the characters tend to get lost in the mix. I was intrigued by the way Crowley was able to develop each character enough to make them interesting, even though I think he could have sacrificed a couple of the more minor characters to make some of the others richer. I thought the acting was very good, which is typical of European films, but be warned that you might want to use the subtitle option (unless you're Irish) because the Irish accents are so sharp, especially Colin Farrell, that it's often hard to understand what's being said. The fabric of the film itself involves many characters involved in separate story lines, that as the film plays out, slowly approach and tie into a more central story revolving around an attempted robbery. The multiple story lines are fairly engaging, and at times very funny with very witty dialogue, especially in relation to Sally the mustache girl. Intermission isn't a movie probably everyone will like, but I thought it was interesting and worthy of a rental.
