The Irish in Film
A Complete List of Irish Films

 Title  Bitter Harvest   How Harry Became a Tree
There is so much of the Irish in this film. Set in a small, sparsely populated village, in 1924, where everyone knows everything about everyone else. (The reluctant priest is called upon to act as judge, jury and executioner.) The story is a typical Irish tall tale where the moral is learned through some meshing with the natural world. The Irish climate, both physical and social, is captured in every detail of the houses, roads, landscapes, rain, cabbages, matchmaking, dancing, gossip, shyness, brashness, emigration and that general feeling of that this is as good as it gets. The tangled turn of events is both comic and tragic. You won't know whether to laugh or cry -- so true of the Irish condition. Link to reviews Click picture
