"Our Dublin guide Robert Nicholson (curator of the James Joyce Museum) is a game amateur in the original sense; his awkward bounding love manifesting in the odd flick of spittle heading the lens' way. Many of the original buildings from the famous novel are gone, but the lay of the land is the same, and Harrison takes the viewer on an affable armchair ambulation. The DVD is done dirt cheap, which mostly adds to its silly charm, the sad exception being the poor sound quality of the brief readings of the corresponding episodes of Ulysses which introduce each station of Bloom and Stephen's passionate day. For Joyce completists mostly."

"This is a truly glorious renewal and reenactment of Joyce's Ulysses, as each of the episodes is renewed by way of a reenactment by way of the actual place and its environment. Thereby the whole novel is reenacted and we encounter again each of its characters in the very context of their Dublin world."
