A film about a young boy dealing with emotions living with his ill father.
This film called 'Horse' is a 30 minute film, which is set in Galway in the west of Ireland. It is about a young boy called Michael, who is living with his ill father. It seems his father is suffering from a lung decease, which turns out to be cancer later on in the film. This film is mainly seen through the eyes of the young boy and there seems to be some sort of conflict with the near by farm between them and his family. When the father dies, the young boy blames the people from the farm, as they had beaten up his father before in the film, and he then takes revenge on killing the farmer's dog at the end of the film. This film is dealt with feelings and emotions, and has some very nice scenery of the countryside included and has talented casts. It was written and directed very well and I enjoyed this film. Also, there was a nice Irish song at the ending of the film.
A film that deals with relationships between family
This film called 'Country' examines the complex relationship between a father and son. The film is set in rural Ireland in the 1970s and it tells the story of a motherless family of men shaken by the arrival of an estranged aunt from England. This family happens to live on a farm and the aunt comes to stay after the death of young boy Jack's mother. This story is based on particularly around this family and their relationships between them, as this film deals with heartbreak and emotions and love. The theme of the outsider is continued in the social backdrop of a community of travellers. The young boy Jack befriends another boy, who is a little older than him and is one of the travellers, called Michael, who is living near by the farm, who teaches Jack to defend himself from bullies. This film is beautifully filmed with shots of the countryside and the drama is wonderfully played by talented casts. It shows what life was like in Ireland during that time living in the countryside and the difficulties of being raised and the dislikes between the neighbours from different communities. I enjoyed this film as it was written and directed very well.
