Patrick and Dominic are two brothers living alone in a remote farmhouse in the Southwest of Ireland, while their mother is away traveling. When their aunt comes visiting, with her arrives Anya, a young woman from Germany who starts helping Dominic, the younger brother, with his studies in return for a chance to improve her English. As time goes by, Patrick and Anya fall in love, while Dominic also develops feelings for the girl. And when Patrick and Anya decide to move to Dublin together, Dominic comes with them, not being able to let go of his brother.
This is a powerful and moving story which encaptulates everything that is good in movies. Good acting, beautiful scenery,sensational music, and a moving story which takes the viewer on a journey through the full gamut of emotions and wrenches at the very heart-strings. The close relationship between two fun-loving brothers comes under threat when a beautiful, sensitive girl arrives on the scene. As the younger brother comes of age, the inevitable jealousy, confusion, rivalry and lust place their brotherly love in jeopardy. The only certainty is that nothing can ever be the same again. With a strong touch of Irish good humour and an animal story thrown in for good measure, I, unhesitatingly, give this movie 10 out of 10.
