Did You Know?


The man whose car Harry hijacks at the end of the film (in order to pursue Downes) remains unnamed in the film and the viewer never finds out his profession, but in the novel he was a plastic sales representative. Thus, the credit for "sales representative" in the cast refers to him. See more »

Outstanding movie.

One comment on a comment above in which someone refers to Enya as the vocalist on the Clannad theme. Enya (Eithne Ní Bhraonáin) had left Clannad before they recorded this theme. If I recall correctly she only appeared on one album "Crann Úll" (Apple Tree) as a backing vocalist. The lead vocalist on the theme was her sister Máire Ní Bhraonáin who records solo under the Anglicised version of her name Moya Brennan. The voice sounds a lot more like Moya also. I heard her perform this in a small venue (about 60-70 people) in Gleann Cholm Cille in Donegal a couple of months ago. Moya did a lovely job singing this as well as some of her newer stuff and a number of traditional tunes in Irish.
