Beautiful, poignant, nostalgic. I recommend.
26 November 2013 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

A fantastically crafted documentary, that makes you smile from ear to ear and at the same time pull on your heart strings with its sheer authenticity and wonderfully unique characters. Some might argue that the film does not explore the alcoholic down-side of the Irish pub or indeed Irish culture. I think this would be slightly missing the point. The film is an exploration of personality, tradition and character and how we are losing these unique characteristics to generic brands, sameness and franchised retail shops without a soul. This lends an instictive poignancy to the film as we sub-consciously become nostalgic about something that is not lost yet, but is something that we are losing.

There are also moments of sadness in the film where one can get the impression that all is not sewwt and rosy with the customers. You do get a sense of pain and loneliness but the film doesn't need to explain this and shouldn't. This is where the film comes into its own. Cannot recommend this enough!
