Intermission is an urban love story about people adrift and their convoluted journeys in the search for some kind of love. When the desperately insecure and emotionally inarticulate John breaks up with Deirdre to 'give her a little test' his plan backfires leaving her broken-hearted and him alone and miserable. Through chance and coincidence, their break-up triggers a roller coaster ride of interweaving escapades in the lives of everyone around them. Intermission presents a slice of life, the passage between breaking up and making up, exploring how our lives intersect, and the power we all possess to affect the lives of those around us.

This is a list of things that I want, and have wanted, for a long time. Straight from the heart - no fucking around: to be with you; to live with you; and to eventually, you know, to marry you; to have your child... or...
...for me to have yours...
...yes, all my children - however many - three, four...
...to grow old with you; to know - and that's the main thing - to know, all right? that you feel the same. That's it.

There is an extra scene during the credits showing Noeleen and Sam, who have presumably gotten back together. Noeleen is pestering Sam about changing the TV channel, and her nagging manner may give a hint why Sam left her in the first place. See more »
Frankly, too many IMDb critics are expecting "films" instead of movies, because viewed simply on its entertainment merits, "Intermission" was one of the better movies of 2003.
There is no "cinematic" brilliance here. It's not a pretty thing played by thespians to pander to Cannes film snobs, but the movie is funny as hell.
Colin Farrell fans might be disappointed, because he's really just a bit player, though a quite good one. But Colm Meaney is absurdly good, and the movie as a whole is prepossessing and original. Quality work - Think Guy Ritchie meets "The Full Monty."
