Beautifully filmed and wonderfully played
4 January 2001 | by (Leeds, England) – See all my reviews

I saw this film on holiday in Dublin, in October 2000. This is an impressive debut film by Kevin Liddy. It is relevant to past and present Ireland. It is beautifully filmed and the drama is wonderfully played by a talented cast. I was impressed by all the cast but particularly by Gary Lydon and Des Cave. The film examines beautifully the complex relationships between father and sons.
