Storyline

Using his mother's life as inspiration, the filmmaker has created a film that explores how we share life's journey with the opposite sex. His and Hers is an investigation into the ordinary to discover the extraordinary. It finds comedy in the mundane, tragedy in the profound and provides an original insight into a life. The hallways, living rooms and kitchens of the Irish Midlands are used as the canvas for the film's rich tapestry of female characters. The story unfolds sequentially through young to old with a charmingly unabashed array of Irish ladies, and there's not a man in sight. Written by Ken Wardrop

Revealing stories from ordinary people
9 December 2012 | by (Kilkenny, Ireland.) – See all my reviews

This film takes ordinary women in the Irish midlands as its subject, gathers a collection of small moments, and turns them into a fascinating narrative. It is remarkable how frank, open, and honest the participants are, and the result is poignant and often hilarious. I can't help but feel this could only have worked with Irish women, who seem to have a unique way of telling their story.

Wardrop does a wonderful job of establishing continuity through the film, by careful assembling the interviews from young to old, giving the impression of a life being described. His lighting and cinematography are first-class and give the film a seamless feel where it could have been disjointed. It's all the more remarkable since he shot every interview on one roll of film; about ten minutes per woman including all the cutaway shots.

All in all, this was a joy to watch and I'm looking forward to checking out more of Wardrops work.
