I think this films was brilliant, i liked the touch of dark comedy which contrasts very well with the bleak 70's era of Ireland and think the film is most definetly worthy of a nation wide release which it didn't get??

Donal Gallery is fantastic in the leading role as is an actor to watch out for in the future, the cast is equally as talented.
Believe me whan an Irish man says he has seen other Irish films that don't even match up to this one
A must see!!!
