Storyline

Out of prison at last, charismatic sociopath Neal tries to visit the baby son he's never seen, his indifferent parents, and the grave of his horse - not in that order. But mainly he wants to rejoin his old gang in the "pony club" subculture of the wild Northside- would be urban cowboys riding horses rough shod and bare back through the streets of Dublin. He then runs into the squealer who set him up. Written by Anonymous

Plenty of texture but lacking in shape, though admittedly, I got a lot more out of this film than what I expected.
3 February 2008 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

The Good: Beautifully cast with a team of young actors who express their characters with comfort and ease. They act the part as if they know these characters because they are aspects of themselves, something that I didn't expect of such an young cast. I found them to be believable recognisable and likable. The language used is an accurate portrayal of the vernacular of the time and space, I haven't heard anyone called a 'geebag' in years and to hear it used so unselfconsciously made me snort with laughter.

The Bad: While the sketches within the film were excellent stand alone pieces, together they didn't add to the overall story. You left with what you were given in the first five minutes. If there was a message in the story I left without it.

In short: Plenty of texture but lacking in shape, though admittedly, I got a lot more out of this film than what I expected.
