Interesting Irish Silent
31 December 2000 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews



Interesting silent tells the story of 4th Century Saint Patrick- the prince who became a slave, the slave who became a priest, the priest who converted a nation.

It's long, slow and static. The great outdoors mix with some terrible painted backdrops(staged in the General Film Company Of Ireland's offices, the extras look at the camera, and there is over a reel of Patrick being ordained a Bishop. There are gaffs- the Vatican is high renaissance, there are Martello towers, and train tracks.

But it's Irish. There are some knockout scenes- the chariots coming up through the waves and the beach and a truly stunning job of special effects when Patrick banishes the snakes from Ireland. It doesn't stand up well as a film made after the coming of Griffith but it is pretty damn good compared with other films from the 1900s and early 1910s.
