Storyline

Between The Canals follows three small time criminals from Dublin's North Inner City as they each aspire to be somebody in a fast changing society. Liam (Hyland) is a small time dealer who wants to quit his life of crime to become an electrician and provide for his girlfriend and son. Dots (Coonan), is a crazy, irresponsible thug with ambitions to become a big time dealer. Scratchcard (Jones), is a drug user with no ambitions but to stay on social welfare and watch the world go by. Liam is torn between life in the flats and his responsibility to be a good father to his son. He has to just get through this one day and maybe things will look brighter on the other side. But it's Saint Patrick's Day and, in Dublin City, this means trouble everywhere. Written by Anonymous

Terrible
4 December 2012 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

I Love Irish films and TV shows but my good this is awful, the acting is so bad Fair City looks like the Sopranos and the Script has no meaning, I am sorry but that is 88mins of my life i will never get back. I would love to say something positive maybe Peter Coonan (Fran in Love/Hate) is not the worst and plays a really bad role quiet well. sorry guys just not worth watching. with the success of love/hate its a good subject idea but i just think the Script is very weak, the acting is so below par its cringe to watch it has not context and really no plot at all. Hopefully who ever the director was he can try again and come up with a successful movie but i am sorry to say this is a complete flop.
