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

Well i've been a big contributor to the IMDb forum for a few years now and finally i get to comment on a film directed by my brother Mark.

I may be a little biased but Mark has done a great job here, it's very gritty and realistic - it makes the commercial 'gangster' films like the general and intermission seem real artificial because you can tell with those films that they are actors.

Mark used almost all non-actors who lived in those areas of the inner city we rarely see on the big screen. Mark's film entered the IFI cinema in Dublin two days ago and it will run for another 5 days.

It will then be decided if it moves to the multiplexes. Check it out, it's great.
