    Oh, I’d have to add ‘I Went Down’ and ‘Once’. And drama, lots of drama: ‘Hunger’, ‘The Field’, ‘The Crying Game’, ‘In The Name of the Father’, ‘My Left Foot’ (I’m giving away my age here!)

    About Adam is a good one- it’s been a long time since I’ve seen it!

    The Wind that Shakes the Barley – a good film to learn a bit about Irish Independence. But my favorite is probably Ondine – just dreamy, mysterious, a bit mythical – set on the west coast I believe.

    my favorite irish films are a toss up between waking ned devine & once. waking ned devine is hysterical, while i love once for the beautiful music & bittersweet theme.
