Storyline

Timmy Sugrue is a persecuted guesthouse keeper and writer who lives with his mad mother in a very rainy part of the Irish midlands. His only consolation are his visits to Dr. Drudy, a psychiatrist whom he can tell about the love of his life - the President of Ireland. A new motorway puts Timmy's guesthouse off the map. a strange Spanish pilot called marcel comes to visit and create havoc in the guesthouse. Timmy goes to a scriptwriters' conference where only fast, urban and up-beat stories are expected, nothing like Timmy's own story. Uneasy in any of the four provinces of Ireland, he desperately tries to reach the Fifth Province, the province of magic, of passion, of possibility. Written by Jean Lejuez <travelling.cherbourg@wanadoo.fr>

Poor
17 June 2002 | by (Lochmaben, Scotland) – See all my reviews

I suffered this film last evening, as usual I stayed with it to the bitter end hoping it would improve but alas I was disappointed with the 89 minutes of my life wasted. I have enjoyed many films with little or no plot in the past as long as they were entertaining with something to grab my attention. This unfortunately lacked the following :-

Plot, Storyline, Script, Humour, Fresh ideas.
