Very compelling with great acting.
14 November 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I thought the movie was excellent. It was much better than I expected. It started a little slow but picked up quickly and kept my interest all throughout. The acting by both main characters was superb. The acting was mild and emotional and yet very intense. The accent of the main characters was very real. The outdoor scenery was extraordinary. The title "Love and Savagery" depicted well my expectations of the movie. I can certainly highly recommend the movie to all even if one does not have an Irish background. It was so nice to see a normal relaxing entertaining movie for a change. I recently saw two other movies since last week -- while one was good the other was terrible but neither of them could match the quality of the story line or acting of this movie. Both main characters made the movie seem very realistic. They were just both so natural.
