Product Description

Ian Fitzgibbon directs this Dublin-set crime comedy starring Cillian Murphy, Brendan Gleeson and Jim Broadbent. Indebted to Dublin's most ruthless gangster, Darren Perrier (Gleeson), Michael McCrea (Murphy) embarks on a voyage through the city's underworld in a frantic search for the cash that will save his skin. Along the way he listens to the lamentations of his neighbour Brenda (Jodie Whittaker), confronts his estranged hypochondriacal father Jim (Broadbent) and gets embroiled in a fight at his local pub with Brenda's cheating boyfriend.

5.0 out of 5 stars That's just my way, man 31 Aug 2011
By boz
Format:DVD
Black comedy gangster movies were the hot trend in British cinema in the 2000s. London's Lock Stock, Snatch and Layer Cake etc were met by Ireland's Intermission and this, Perrier's Bounty. Whilst the grit of the English films is to be admired, there is a certain something about the Irish that allows the dark humour of the film to come across as more genuine and Perrier's Bounty is a great example of this.

Wonderfully casted, the film really fizzes from the off, with an unusual narrative beginning, similar to the Big Lebowski's intro, introducing the excellent Cillian Murphy straight into trouble with some heavies. In fact, much of the film is reminiscent of the Coen brothers' movies, with thematic cues from Miller's Crossing, narration that wouldn't be out of place in Lebowski and a few jokes that keep popping up throughout the film, akin to O, Brother, Where Art Thou? That said, there's certainly no harm in learning from two of Hollywood's finest minds, and this film certainly crackles with original Irish wit, despite the possible American cues.

Murphy is fantastic, and he is ably supported by the ever-wonderful Jim Broadbent as his Da and the impressive Jodie Whittaker as his female friend, whilst being brilliantly opposed by the intimidating Brendan Gleeson. A really engrossing film, well shot and, most importantly, genuinely funny. Hugely recommended.

By Tommy Dooley TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
This is a comedy crime caper from director Ian Fitzgibbon. It has a galaxy of Irish stars and Jim Broadbent doing a passable accent as the father of the hero Cillian Murphy. He plays Michael, who owes money to the Mr Perrier and unlike the water of the same name, he is far from soft.

The film opens with Michael being told he has until ten that night to find the thousand Euros. Meanwhile his neighbour Brenda, (Jodie Whitaker) and crush from afar is having boyfriend trouble, his estranged father appears to announce, that the next time he falls asleep, he will die and he gets offered a job with a Mr Mutt to rob a house for some ready cash. The latter plan seems like a no brainer, and so he signs up. Things go sour when Mr Perrier's henchman and gay lovers, turn up to break a few bones, one of them gets more than he bargains for. In the rituals of the underground, Michael and Brenda have gone too far and thus a bounty is put on their heads.

What follows in a tale that has dark comedy, loads of profanity and some quite good performances, we also meet a load of trophy dogs, wheel clampers, coke dealers and generally the seedier side of Dublin life. Brendan Gleeson is as ever excellent as the Mr P and gets more than his fair share of good one liners. This is not great cinema, but it is a ruddy good journey and with both action, a love interest and an examination of both family and animal values, but where it scores highest is the gallows humour, so if that is your thing then I am sure you will enjoy. A word should go to the Irish Film Board which keeps helping innovative cinema with funding as is the case here, it is a shame the UK has lost its' council.

3.0 out of 5 stars Bountiful 8 Aug 2010
By J. Morris TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
Cillian Murphy (28 Days Later & Sunshine) plays a hapless Michael McCray who borrows money from the local gangster, Perrier (Brendan Gleeson - Green Zone). When he struggles to make the repayments, Perrier sends his enforcers round to collect, involving Michael's neighbour and long-time crush Brenda (Jodie Whittaker). When Michael's dad shows up (Jim Broadbent - Hot Fuzz) convinced that he will die the next time he falls asleep, Michael has to try and keep everyone out of harm's way and repay the man he owes, which turns out to be a lot more complicated than he ever could have expected.

With such an excellent set of Irish actors any story was going to be entertaining to watch, Perrier's Bounty is a sinuous tale about debt and gangsters. Jim Broadbent provides the majority of the comic relief as he desperately tries to keep himself awake with coffee, slaps to the face and other less-legal methods. Cillian Murphy plays Michael flawlessly but doesn't really invoke a lot of compassion for his character as he just seems to be so self-involved despite the plight facing his father and Brenda. Despite this, this is a fast-paced film, brilliantly directed by Ian Fitzgibbon, that will keep you chained to the sofa for the duration and provide a good few laughs. Worth a watch!!

This is a brilliant film, let me say that again, this is a brilliant film. I was told to watch this about a year ago. I remembered the name but never sought it out. It appeared on tele so I gave it a whirl..... Wow. I never review stuff on Amazon but after seeing the reviews that were posted I felt compelled. The script is so tight, so resonant, it's beautiful. The acting is superb, the cast.. pretty flipping stellar. If you like tight, well scripted, intelligent indie films, don't hesitate, just watch.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great fun, but perhaps not everybody's cuppa 12 Sep 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I guess, crime thriller comedies are perhaps not everybody's cup of tea. Add to that this film's setting in Dublin, with a north side accent to boot which some non-Irish viewers may find difficult to understand at times (but, hey, there are always the subtitles), and I can see why some reviewers simply don't fancy this film. Perhaps they also don't appreciate the film's bizarre brand of humour, but if you, dear reader, appreciate all of the above, then this is the film for you. I found it truly funny and was delighted by the amazing Irish cast (Murphy, Gleeson, Cunningham, Wycherley, Delaney, McElhatton, Byrne [voice only]), cameos by one of Gleeson's sons and the author Pat McCabe (Butcher Boy, Breakfast On Pluto), and the very funny Brendan Coyle, playing a small role so unlike Downton Abbey's lovely Mr Bates.

To be fair, Perrier's Bounty is probably one of those films which one either loves or hates, but I - for one - thoroughly enjoyed it.
