Storyline

Dublin; June 16, 1904. Stephen Dedalus, who fancies himself as a poet, embarks on a day of wandering about the city during which he finds friendship and a father figure in Leopold Bloom, a middle-aged Jew. Meanwhile, Bloom's day, illuminated by a funeral and an evening of drinking and revelry that stirs paternal feelings toward Stephen, ends with a rapprochement with Molly, his earthy wife.

Trivia

This was passed for cinema in March 1967 and thus became the first film in the UK to feature the word "fuck". Marianne Faithfull's single use of the word in the film I'll Never Forget What's'isname (1967) would follow 3 months later. See more »

A quirky and entertaining little piece
28 January 1999 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Could Ulysses be filmed? A tremendous novel becomes an atmospheric, entertaining, and generally absorbing film, losing none of the humour or the pathos. Perhaps a little slowly paced to start with, but filming around Dublin in black and white with an interesting cast and a variety of interesting approaches means the film is well worth seeing. Much better than expected.
