Heart rending & beautiful
Never reviewed on here before, but just watched this movie on RTE. It is really beautiful. I find it hard to see how anyone can see it as boring or such like. Yes, it moves slowly, but that's the point, people.
It captures a world out there that is so real in rural Ireland, & captures it beautifully. As someone has already stated, it is shot beautifully (I know, I keep using the same adjective, but appropriate!) - the cinematography is top notch - something I always appreciate.
This movie is extremely reminiscent of the wonderful Lenny Abrahamson movie 'Garage' with Pat Shortt - similar themes, similar bleakness & oh so brilliant! Also reminds me of a Scottish movie I saw recently called 'Shell', with similar themes.
Thank you for this movie.
