slightly quirky Irish movie
9 April 2004 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Stephen Rea plays Eddie, a street trader working on the patch of the obnoxious ruling Irish clan headed by Richard Harris and Brendan Gleeson. The main premise of the story concerns the wedding of Harris to a local teenager, who promptly runs away after the ceremony with Eddie's young assistant and a trunk of money. Rea is dispatched to find them and bring the girl back.

Several memorable features light up this unusual movie – the performance of Aislin McGuckin as the bought and sold bride, the music at the wedding (excellent use of traditional Irish songs), the way that Rea and Harris play off each other, and the truly shocking bit where an expected bit of violence intrudes. The ending is really funny but I wouldn't dream of spoiling it!
