a very slick Irish short
27 February 2004 | by (Dublin, Ireland) – See all my reviews

One of the better Irish shorts I've seen in recent years. Very solidly assembled with good performances and fairly slick visuals and editing. The crisp B&W photography of inner city Dublin reminded me of the way the Parisian projects were shot in La Haine. Even the nastier parts of Dublin look great in B&W. At times the storyline seems a little bit too much like a travelogue about a part of the city but the final scene packs an unexpected emotional punch, while still being fairly subtle. Great use to music too, well integrated into the piece. It's treads the line between been gritty and sentimental without falling too far on either side and gets a fair bit of character development and visual variety into it's tightly paced 15 minute run time. Definitely worth a look.
