3.0 out of 5 stars A good movie and a very promising debut by the director., 28 Feb 2008
This review is from: The Inaccessible Pinnacle [DVD] (DVD)
Overall a decent movie and a good one if viewed as a childrens film. The cinematography is often excellent and some of the scenes captured in film are absolutely stunning - the director, Simon Miller, obviously has a natural talent. The story is interesting although certain bits could do with expansion. Overall the film felt maybe 10-20 minutes too short and a bit more background on Aonghas' parents and their death would have given the movie a more rounded feel. The acting is always competent, and often good, with a couple of very memorable cameo appearances by Vidal Sancho and Charles Quinnell sticking in the memory. The soundtrack is excellent and very well judged and assuming that it is released in its own right it will surely be quite popular. Overall the film is good by any standard (not just in a "it's a minority language thing so we can't say anything else" way) and hopefully the first of many we can look forward to from Miller. Oh also worth noting is the fact that the DVD contains subtitles in Irish, as well as Scottish, Gaelic as well as Welsh which is a nice little show of Celtic language solidarity.

Nice to read a review of this film that doesn't sound as if the writer has just drunk a double-triple-espresso. ;)
