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 movie is great bc the actors don't seem like their acting, it's like you are really watching these people. Like the characters are real. Soooo funny too, if you like dark humor. I agree with one of the other comments, the beginning is awesome and the rest of the movie pretty much keeps up. Great action flick as well as have an intelligent dialog between the characters. The directing is amazing as well. One of the things I really liked about this movie is that it touches on so many different topics but doesn't beat any of them like a dead horse. It's very much like real life stuff that happens everyday. I'm American and watched it with an Aussie, so yeah, people outside the Irish community can still appreciate this fehluuummm (film).
