Storyline

Two couples, one Catholic, one Protestant, exist on two sides of the chasm that is everyday life in Northern Ireland. Both women are expecting babies, both couples tell offbeat stories, both couples get by with what little they have. Yet Mike Leigh allows his actors to show not how much but how little these two couple have in common. "Four Days in July" is wonderful yet scathing look at the turmoil that has engulfed Northern Ireland for generations. Written by Mike Stimler

Astonishing gentleness
28 May 2003 | by (Washington, DC, USA) – See all my reviews

What really strikes the viewer about this movie is its lack of bitterness or moral judgment. Almost no one comes off as angry, pessimistic, or nasty; rather, people joke, celebrate, and live their middle-class existences without rancor. I also found Director Mike Leigh's ability to make a movie with very little action and lots of dialogue remain interesting extraordinary.
