Movie Reviews

Side splitting laughter in a realistic setting
05/13/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This movie centers around two pregnant women from each community in Belfast. As their due date approaches so does the twelfth of July. As the temperature rises, so does the tension and the laughter. Much of the rubbish in movies about Northern Ireland today is based on misery and fiction and ignorance. This movie truly portrays Belfast, the people, the humor and the tragedy. An excellent movie for those wishing to see what the atmosphere of Belfast is really like, and how the troubles affect everyday life. Having grown up in Northern Ireland before moving to the US 24 years later, I can speak from experience."
Fantastic, the only honest film I have seen about Belfast!

(5 out of 5 stars)

"A triumph. Mike Leigh excells himself with this piece of mid-eighties genius. Set in Belfast, the story revolves around two families from different communities, in Belfast, over four summer days. As usual Leigh gets under the skin of his characters to give, what I believe, is the most honest portrait of Belfast and its people ever committed to celluloid. A joy from start to finish!"
