Funny and knowing
28 October 2000 | by (Belfast, Northern Ireland) – See all my reviews

"35 Aside" is one of those rare treats that cheers you up every time you see it. The acting, especially from James Mahon, is terrific, and Damien O'Donnell's confident handling of the material shows he has a great future ahead of him. Every camera angle and edit adds to the humour and the plight of the film's young protagonist, and there will be nobody who does not cringe at their own schoolday memories whilst watching this.

All in all, great stuff which paved the way for O'Donnell's equally skillful treatment of the marvellous "East Is East", which I also urge you to see.
