I just watched the movie "Waking Ned Divine." A feel good movie. Set in modern day small Irish town. If you want a pick-me-up, I highly recommend it. If you're looking for leprechauns or knights sorry tongue.gif

Hello there,

this is my top five :

1. First Knight (a classic now, isn't it? Gere & Connery are so great in this movie)
2. Le nom de la Rose (sorry, didn't the english title for this fantastic movie)
3. Highlander (so sad that the others are so........)
4. Rob Roy
5. Braveheart

'The Name of the Rose' is the title - with Sean Connery and Christian Slater, right?
I always feel so sad at the scene where the library burns - I do love my books - then Sean makes it out and those books start dropping from under his cloak.

The movie is very very good! I have seen it several times. Very depressing , but it is real life during that period. will educate you on what life was like back then.

I also have the book! Very very good! I recommend anybody who is interested in their Irish heritage or Irish culture to read the book and see the movie! Will greatly enlighten you with the fact that there was no romanticism involved during that day as some would like to project. wink.gif

I tried to watch it once, but felt such exasperation at the father for being so neglegent and at the mom for continually smoking... and then at the scene with dinner being a sheep's head, I was like 'okay, that's enough for me - I'm outta here!"

You got THAT right. My friend Seamus is one of 11 children, and he once bought a painting from me of an Irish cottage I'd seen in Ireland; now this was a thatched cottage, whitewashed and tidy but no more than 4 or maybe 5 rooms at the most. He said he bought the painting because it looked just like the home he grew up in. We both just looked at each other for awhile after he said that - wow.

Now he's a very successful businessman here in the states and has a big beautiful house for his family of 6 but he hasn't forgotten for a moment his beginnings.

My friends, you all have excellent taste in films, but I feel that there are some outstanding titles missing.

While not ?Celtic themed?, Roddy Doyle?s modern day Dublin trilogy of ?the Commitments?, "The Snapper?, and ?the Van? are all worthy of a look. Great comedies, all! The Commitments has an outstanding R&B soundtrack recorder by the actors. (Don?t miss Colm Meany?s Elvis impression!)

As for other films set in the Isles, check out Local Hero, starring Peter Reigert and Burt Lancaster. The film is set on the Northern Coast of Scotland, and features a comical storyline and gorgeous scenery.

Intermission is a gritty crime drama set in Dublin and stars Colm Meanay and Colin Farrell.


Thanks for the suggestions. I?ll add these to my Blockbuster Queue!

I really enjoyed "the Commitments" another fantasy themed (which is where I would group LOTR albeit Celtic flare) is A Wizard of Earth Sea. I have not seen the film but read the book many years ago and it was wonderful.

Peace

Mikel

As I was scanning through, I believe no one mentioned "The Devil's Own". It stars Brad Pitt and Harrison Ford. Pitt plays a boy who saw his father, suspected of being a separatist sympathizer, gunned down at the dinner table by a loyalist. He joins the IRA and escapes (goes) to NY to buy and then sail stinger missiles back to Ireland. While he is in NY he stays with a NY policeman (Ford). It is interesting story of who's really the bad guy and the poignant statement is "it's not an American story." Great music, too.

I've seen most of the others mentioned. Braveheart is the best, but you can't miss "Waking Ned Devine"-- "Micheal Sullivan was my best friend, but I don't think I ever told him so."
