Product Description

Irish drama-documentary. Ten-year-old Winnie (Winnie Maughan) is the daughter of a family of travellers who live in a trailer in a run-down part of Dublin. As she struggles with her sense of identity, she comes up against the barriers of prejudice and beaurocracy in a prosperous western country that has marginalised a whole community.

Format: DVD
According to the blurb, Winnie Maugham is a real-life traveller and the film is based on real events. With that in mind, the fact that a film about a ten-year-old girl's life is rated "15" is revealing in itself. I actually showed an edited (with the DVD remote) version of it to my 9 year old daughter, who watched with great attention, despite the slow pace of the film, the limited dialogue, and the subtitles (I'm from Dublin but couldn't understand a word without the subtitle option).

The naturalistic quality of the acting is outstanding, this feels like a fly-on-the-wall documentary and is, I imagine, true to its subject matter. Some of the non-traveller parts are a bit stiff, possibly reflecting how uncomfortable 'settled' people feel around travellers. We see no hostility to travellers, which is probably in reality a regular factor in their lives.

The impression I was left with was the pathetic dependency of Winnie's mother on social services. Probably in part because she is a single mother, but any romantic notion of independence from straight society is completely dispelled.

Maybe five stars is a bit strong but I think this deserves wider recognition.

I thouroughly appreciated this film for what it is. It is not designed to be entertainment for the lazy viewer who does not want to think or be interested in the world beyond what they know in life, or from mainstream media. The contrast between the 'real' people and the the actors was transparent i.e the Maughans versus the social workers etc. And I think that this was part of the beauty of it all. It epitomised the discomfort in reality, between those who understand (or try to), and those who are on the outside. For me it portrayed the discomfort that many Irish people have felt with interacting with travelling people and their difficulties understanding them. It reminds me, with shame, of my difficulties being associated with travelling children in our schools when I was growing up. We did not want to be associated with them, and although I was fascinated and interested in their culture, I felt unable to voice this. I recall the beautiful singing of a young travelling boy who joined our class for a few weeks never to be seen again after that. I also recall the ostracisation of a young travelling girl who was settled in our community, Roisin, and how difficult it was for her to be one of us. I feel bad to this day for my part in this. For those of us who have some contact with travelling people, I think this film will mean something. For those who don't, I hope they will open their minds to see it as something which is very honest. For me, even as a non-traveler, I can identify with the family dynamics, the care for others, the daily chores of finding water for the tea and all the things we take for granted in our over-civilised world. Finally, what is beautiful is the capturing of the innocence of young girls, not quite knowing what to do with themselves, something which for me is not that different wherever we are in the world. Not a polished film THANK GOD, because if it was it wouldn't capture what is this priceless snapshot of life.

a film rather well done by a young girl with no particular acting skills
from the travelling community, and it shows the problems they have to put up with of life on the road
a nice little film, and not a single offensive word despite hard times encountered...
