A rerasonable fantasy.
14 May 2003 | by (Dublin, Ireland) – See all my reviews

Another Shore is a reasonable fantasy, or modern fairy-tale. It has a strong cast, is well directed, and is based on a good book.

In hindsight it is also a socio-documentary of Dublin. It shows very vividly the post-war Dublin, a city that no longer exists.
