Easing your problems with music & friendship
8 August 2007 | by See all my reviews

As a regular at all the Dublin film festivals to date I was disappointed to miss this film during this years programme.

The old story of a clash of films on the same night.Now that it has been given a long overdue release in 2 Dublin cinemas I caught up,and I was delighted to have seen it at last.

This film is a little gem,beautifully paced and filmed, great work from cinematographer Tim Fleming.We know it is set in Ireland,but without any large city or town imposing itself,it could be in an rural setting in Europe,the Americas, north and south,or the Antipodes,such was the general ambiance of the setting.As an antidote to mainstream films there was no violence, no CGI stuff, no foul language,it was well written & well acted. With only 6 main characters they managed to tell a story that was timeless.A big gruff-looking,but gentle man copes with his sad life through his music and old friendships
