Baby steps to what might yet opens doors to Irish film
The film is a nice little cleverly written film, but the direction adds a very strong amateur feel to it. If Hollywood got there hands on the idea it might have been a world wide success but alas the Irish critics, if they have the right to be even called that have rallied behind him, making him sound like a prodigy but they are very over rated judgements. Whether or not he'll get any better at directing than this is yet very uncertain.
Some of the cast are really good others are born stage actors and should remain so.... still though with the Irish film board pumping out these low budget films it's no wonder the Irish film industry is light years behind everyone else. Out with the old and in with the new I say.. But Robert Quinn is a start... so mixed views.
