Amazing
29 October 2011 | by northkerrymanSee all my reviews

All I can say is well done on the creation of a masterpiece. I just saw this Film in the Classic Cinema in Listowel in Ireland and loved it. It is such a real representation of a tragically sad existence by a bachelor in rural Ireland. Amazingly, despite the slow pace of the film representing the slow pace of the life it describes, we were kept on the edge of our seats throughout. Also an amazing performance by the lead actor. With that the film was supposedly shot on a shoe string budget.

For any Irish person with an Uncle or Aunt living alone, this is a must see!
