Love can blind you and finally fulfill you
2 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Beautiful film set in Ireland (coastline) in the 1930's. The story of various people who bravely hardships and significant problems. The main character, a young woman, manages a top-notch performance in a very difficult role. The film shows the callous and brutal side of people, as well as the lovely and the courageous side. The scenery is gorgeous and the isolated setting, appropriate to the story is also menacing. I watched in awe as I participated in the lives of people in a different world than mine struggle and endure. The problems and the often transient joys are universal and should apply to everyone. "Times change. People never do." Please do yourself a favor and see this 200 minute four part series. I was able to check it out of our local library, but I highly recommend buying it if you can't find it anywhere.
