Storyline

After the death of his mother, an Irish emigrant in New York remembers stories from the past in Ireland. These are stories of the rivalry between two men, who not only vied for the love of the same woman, but who also stood on opposing sides during the struggle for Irish independence around 1920. Their differences are never quite forgotten, and the feud between them flares up again in the 1950s.

Great film about broken dreams
5 November 2004 | by mbgawronSee all my reviews

Noticed this film at the library and watched it. It was wonderful, very emotional, and it had me crying several times. It starts and ends in the present, but most of the movie is in the past, specifically post-Civil War in Ireland.

There is a dreamy, old-fashioned sense to this movie. It evokes rural Ireland of the past quite well. The characters seem driven by Fate in their actions, and the metaphor of potential harvest and realizing one dreams and hopes is powerful. Bewitching scenery dominates the film, and it made Ireland seem so breathtakingly beautiful, yet sad as the tale comes to its unavoidable end.

I would give this film a very high rating, at least an 8.0; can't believe someone would only rate this a 4.0.
