Trivia

The school scenes were filmed in Blackrock College, Dublin, Kieron J. Walsh's old school. Walsh was not permitted to use the actual school crest in the film, so the dove and lion were flipped in their positions and the real motto, "Fides et robur" (Faith and Strength), was replaced by "C'era una volta il Ociente" (Once Upon a Time In The West).

Unusual and entertaining romantic comedy
13 January 2001 | by (Boeblingen, Germany) – See all my reviews

Quiet, self-absorbed teacher Brendan (Peter McDonald) meets outgoing thief Trudy (Flora Montgommery) and, following the old maxim 'opposites atract', they fall madly in love. She introduces him to the intricacies of breaking and entering, while he introduces her to the beauty of sung hymnal music.

The film is a veritable reel of visual and oral quotes, which you must be (like screenwriter Roddy Doyle) a real film fan in order to get them all. However, the constant quotation does not get in the way of the story, which is by turns funny and tragic.

Good story, lovely accents, fantastic external shots around Ireland and some nice views around Dublin make this film a genial and pleasent way to spend an evening. 7/10.
