Quotes

Maureen Duffy: "Once there was a time," my dad would always say before tellin' us stories that would send me off to my dreams. "Once there was a time when the land was taken from the people and split into parts to be ruled by kings and men and laws. But the people were protected by the magic ones, who sailed out from the mist on ships from the sky, full of light and music and beauty." And it said, by those who ought to know such things, that the magic ones no longer walked among us. But to hear me dad tell it...

Better than 99% of what Hollywood puts out.
19 July 2006 | by jordan2240See all my reviews

Don't know where this little gem came from, or if it ever appeared in any theater, but it tops most of what comes out of Hollywood these days. It's funny, touching, and a sensory feast for the eyes and ears. If you like anything about Ireland, you'll likely enjoy this movie. All of the performances are excellent. Be warned that is does deserve its PG-13 rating, so it may not be family-friendly for all. It's unfortunate that movies like this don't have enough pull to find a profitable audience, but I suppose that's where Blockbuster and the like can have an impact. It's a bit strange that the overall user rating on IMDb is rather low, but most of the reviews are favorable. In this instance, I think the reviews tell the real story. Give this one a try and judge for yourself.
