I am glad I was mistaken, and I felt like an idiot that I never noticed that I had in possession an Edward Burns' movie! This writer, director and star goes back to this Irish-Catholic roots and the 1995 debut film that put him on the map, The Brothers McMullen. Burns knows his way around the business of family playing Gerry Fitzgerald, the eldest of seven children parented by Josie (in a lifetime performance of Anita Gillette), a single mom since her husband, Big Jim (Ed Lauter), walked out on them 20 years ago. It was threading on an edge to become a Hallmark entertainment piece, but Burns and a bracingly fine cast play it for real, and that feel of reality is never allowing the film to slip to the cheap and cheese category. He wisely brings in Connie Britton, as his new romance and their scenes together have an irresistible romantic vibrancy. Even with all the problems of the family, there is a perfect amount of grit and comic grace notes, but sometimes I felt overwhelmed with so many characters introduced at once ... brother Quinn (Michael McGlone) wants to propose to younger girlfriend (Daniella Pineda); sister Sharon (Kerry Bishe) hooks up with a father-figure (Noah Emmerich); sister Dottie (Marsha Dietlein Bennett) dumps her husband for a hottie gardener, and the next sister Connie (Caitlin Fitzgerald) is pregnant by an abusive boyfriend while the youngest brother Cyril (Tom Guiry) is just out of rehab; sister Erin (Heather Burns), has married up and looks down on her family, except for daddy... with all these it felt like an Russian classic not a modern Irish-American piece. It was a good experience, though.

Sonika S (nl) wrote: I've read the book which is one of my favourites and I always wished they'd make a movie out of it. I knew also they'd be changing things around in the movie if they ever made one but the book is a lot better. Too many things were changed and the characters as I felt they were in the book were not what I expected in the movie. The character of Lena wasn't as bold and saucy as she is in the book. The character of Declan didn't have as much charm as in the book. The character of Ms. Odette wasn't all that of a lovable grandma more like a voodoo woman (again not like the book). It's still one of my faviourite books but as a movie ... it didn't impress me much. I don't regret I watched it. It could have been a lot better though.

Jonathan B (jp) wrote: You can't fault Javier Bardem's acting skill or indeed his tenacity as he takes us on a depressing and overly long tour of some of the least salubrious estates around Barcelona. It comes to something that the lighter moments are actually provided by his visits to hospital to check on the progress of his prostate cancer. I can't help feeling that his quality of life would have been improved no end had he just spent a few minutes with a bottle of Harpic and a scouring pad and cleaned up his less than sanitary looking toilet. This film is so grim and bleak as to make Mike Leigh look like an episode of The Simpsons and frankly, I found it tested my will power to sit through it. Bardem's character Uxbal faces hardship, bad luck and tragedy at every step as he struggles single handedly to raise two children. They live in utter squalor and poverty with only a collection of crooks, drug addicts and shady characters for company. I'm all for a bleak movie now and again but this was just so grindingly downbeat that I really felt depressed by it. Worse still, it is far, far too long and I'd easily got the measure of it, and largely lost interest at the halfway point still with well over an hour to go. If you are going to watch this, put all the sharp implements well out of reach.

Rogerinho S (it) wrote: The flashbacks were the highlight here, with a an awesome Roxy Music scene and a heartfelt tragedy. The current day predicament of Daniel Craig could have been cut to 2 minutes as a pithier contrast would have sufficed. I thought Felicity Jones was great while Claire Forlani was an awkward choice for the adult version.
