After the heavy handed "Admit One" 'critic, allow me to advocate for the film from a foreigner point of view, that is (sorry for the broken English!). The scenery is beautiful, the acting great, the Irish brogue and the music fit in perfectly, some scenes are perfectly delicate (dialogue between Seamus and Grace about Columcille, the man "Darry" shaving), the plot is "different". No nudity, no sex and very little violence but quite a few issues such as faith, belief, forgiveness, commitment, life and death. The plot might be a bit hard to understand but it doesn't matter; the film is like some kind of dream on the water, maybe Seamus'mind wandering about. The question raised is "how to live in a country scattered by thirty years of civil war" and dealt with in an interesting way. At some point, this film reminded me of Bergman's "Seventh Seal", in a modest way. Strongly recommended to speculative persons.
