Storyline

A father in Ireland goes to watch a football match with his buddy while his daughter has to study Irish, or Gaelic - the ancient language of Ireland. After over-celebrating his club's victory, he awakes in the morning and finds he only speaks Irish, and that he doesn't even understand English. His buddy is aghast at this situation, believing his friend to have become possessed, but his daughter manages to translate his friend's assertion that this change may have been caused by a blow to the head during the revelries of the past evening's celebrations. They decide to hit him again, and use a frying pan for the job. Disastrous results ensue. Written by stevergy2000@yahoo.com

Twisted and funny
6 February 2008 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This cute little short film stars Stephen Rea--a man you will probably recognize but whose name escapes you (it did me). Because Rea starred in the film, the film makers either had a relatively high budget or else he just loved the idea so much he agreed to do it. Considering how funny and effective it was, it was a good choice for him to make the film.

Now you need to first understand that this is NOT sophisticated humor, plus I strongly recommend AGAINST trying the solution to Rea's amnesia that they tried in the film. Despite what happened here and in sit-coms, it is NOT a good idea to whack a guy over the head to cure amnesia--even though, in this twisted case, the original knock on the head made Rea only be able to speak and understand Irish Gaelic--a language he didn't even know before the head injury!! In addition to being a funny and strange idea that was exceptionally well executed, the film ends with a dandy conclusion. See this film and have a nice laugh, but DON'T try to cure amnesia at home--it's bound to cause more problems than you'd anticipate!!
