Storyline

Set in 1970s Ireland, Johnny Smith, a seemingly innocent local boy, goes to church to confess his sins to the all powerful town priest. With his friend standing by he nervously enters the confession box and begins a strange conversation with the priest, who seems more interested in gossiping about the nocturnal habits of the local women than granting him absolution from his sins. But everything is not as it seems. Written by Thomas Hefferon

why bother???
6 December 2008 | by See all my reviews

If anyone want to know whats wrong with the irish film industry then check this out! Why of why do irish filmmakers think that triumphing short films as such will get them anywhere. As someone who views many a short at the circuits both in Europe and the Us they are usually well crafted and by students from film schools etc...te irish unfortunately plough everything behind them as a final product! and this film is no exception . ...a cliché irish short movie from start to finish....its like someone telling you a joke in a pub that goes on and on and and ur just gaggin for the punchline to put you out of your misery!!!

Acting was OK, script was poor and the camera-work clichéd from start to finish. unoriginal and to be honest it plagiarizes a well known gag, even the director admits this!!!

Whoever made the decision to put this in from of the equally awful Dylan Moran movie was off their rockers!! Please irish filmmakers get a grip....leave the shorts for the film schools! ....and if you are going to do it be a little more original that this!!!

Avoid!
