Cloying feelgood Hallmark PC but not bad
12 January 2014 | by (Peru) – See all my reviews

A sort of Being There movie where an Irishman who comes to a small Balearic Island town helps everyone without understanding a word they are saying...like a psychiatrist who only nods and people are cured.

The feel good cloying hallmark quality of the natives was the only thing that takes this thing down a notch or two. The PC elements... a probable lesbian who wants to join the military and repair tanks and a low confidence boy with a hearing aide (symbolic) while cooked are rather pleasantly and tastefully done. Also there is a middle aged daffy woman who wants to get pregnant (sub plot) and never figures out the Irishman (Meaney) doesn't understand her conversations with him. But people aren't this cloyingly simple. In fact what I have read at least of Corsica foreigners are regularly bombed and killed.

The Irishman was trying to find where his girlfriend died when she ran from him on a vacation years before and died falling into a cave "sink hole" that dot the area. He only has a photograph to go by and he is trying to make some closure on the tragedy.

It works best as a comedy but with a bittersweet underpinning.... It gets a solid 7....suspending disbelief for the comedy. Again the main flaw is the over done too feel good stuff.
