There have been quite a few good — and in some cases outstanding — movies that have come out of Ireland. This is NOT one of them! Though billed as such, it is definitely not a comedy and nowhere close to being another ‘Waking Ned Devine‘. And it is also not ‘Crying Game‘ though towards the end I was nearly ready to cry that I had wasted my time watching this tripe.
What drew me to it was the ‘7 interconnected stories‘ pitch. I like that genre and as you must know there have been some very clever and compelling movies of that type. This, alas, is not one of them.
Not a clever movie. Not profound in any aspect. I might even say it was bloody awful.
I did, however, enjoy seeing the trains! Never realized that they had such fancy and large (as in length) trains in Ireland. Also freight trains full of wood. Wow. That was about the highlight.
Do not get me wrong. It might appeal to some. Not I. So, I just wanted to give you a heads up on that. SMILE.
It was FREE. So, all I lost was 90-minutes of my time and some dignity — though I did do 23-minutes of pedaling my stationary bike while watching this. So, it wasn’t time totally wasted.
