5.0 out of 5 stars A classic in its own right..., 6 Sep 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: The Commitments [1991] [DVD] (DVD)
"The Commitment" is a exceptional and humourous story about real people in Dublin, Ireland. It is written by Roddy Doyle and centers around a young man and the band he is trying to put together to play soul music. His point is that "The Irish brothers wouldn't be shooting ...each other if they had soul". But keeping the band together turns out to be just as big a problem as it was putting it together in the first place...
The casting for the film took place in Dublin where virtually everybody showed up (says Sharon Corr), so the actors are real dubliners, and they do a fantastic job. They were all unknown when the film was made, but some has made it big on the music scene since (Andrew Strong, Andrea Corr).
Bit perhaps the biggest part in the film is played by the soundtrack. Old classics are given a makeover and are performed brilliantly by the band in the film.
This is a film and a soundtrack that belongs on everyones shelf.
