Storyline

Mark is a wannabe actor, penniless, clueless, and inept. He cares for a brother who's paraplegic, and he has a girlfriend, Sally, who wants out of the relationship. His idea of life is to go to the occasional audition, dodge his landlord (having spent the rent money Sally gave him), give Sally a hang-dog look, and talk with Pearce, who lives upstairs. Mark's flat is in disrepair: the kitchen window slams shut, bits of plaster fall from the ceiling, a bulb fizzes, and the sitting-room chandelier sways. When an awful accident happens, Mark freezes, which precipitates additional accidents; he finally calls Pearce, perhaps the worst decision possible. Will Mark come to his senses?

Goofs

The layout of Pierce's flat internally does not match the exterior shots. From the outside the garden level door is under the main steps to the house and would face the party wall with the next door house. On the inside the corridor from the front door has room on both sides, whereas it could only have had rooms on one side. See more »

saw this in Toronto
22 October 2008 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

This film is very funny, the cast are all excellent. The story, maybe its a bit mad, so what? Its a film, its not meant to be real.

I would single out Amy Huberman as being excellent in this, I also saw her in another Irish film that played in Montreal in August, Satellites and Meteorites, where she was flawless. Dylan Moran, while perhaps reprising many of the other characters he has played previously, was very enjoyable to watch, as was Keith Allen though his part was predictably small.

A few cameos at the end really were well placed, especially Johnny Rhys, though the context of his cameo was a little close to reality so I'm not sure what way he will come across to auds in Ireland.

Throughly enjoyable film, the industry in Toronto reacted extremely positively to it and it along with Kisses really showed us all that Ireland can, when it wants, produce good product.

Well done to all involved and I hope it goes well on its release.
