Black but no comedy,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Quirke [DVD] (DVD)
Very black and atmospheric drawing the viewer into the murky world of the wealthy professional class of the Irish Catholic 'Mafia'. Quirke is a terminally flawed character drowning in his own emotional mire and alcoholism because he was abandoned to an orphanage as a child and he in turn abandoned his daughter to his brother and spouse.
Quite a journey with not much hope of blue skies - apart from the daughter who makes it out of the dour leaden situation with an effervescent American lady bound for a life state-side.
