An oldfashioned romp, charming and amusing
14 January 2004 | by (dublin ireland) – See all my reviews

Mystics is the type of movie you don't see very often these days. An old fashioned comedy romp, with a terrific ensemble cast headed by two classic stalwarts of stage and screen, David Kelly and Milo O'Shea.

The plot centres around two music hall old timers, Dave and Locky, who run a seance scam conning the widows of Dublin in a good natured way. Things turn a little precarious for the old boys when a local gangster dies and the boys get mixed up with his widow (played by an excellent Maria Doyle Kennedy) and rival gangs.

Mystics is good fun from start to finish and to see such an array of top quality Irish actors plying their trade with such obvious enjoyment is a piece of pure escapism.

Highly reccommended.
