A raucous story of the interweaving lives and loves of small-town delinquents, shady cops, pretty good girls and very bad boys. With Irish guts and grit, lives collide, preconceptions shatter and romance is tested to the extreme. An ill-timed and poorly executed couple's break-up sets off a chain of events affecting everyone in town. There's the hapless romantic and his sex-starved best friend, the hotshot detective and the crook he's after, a young girl on the rebound with an older married man--not to mention his deserted wife, an ambitious TV producer, an abandoned fiancée, a preteen trouble-maker--all of whom are unaware of how their choices are profoundly intertwined. Add a botched robbery, some brown sauce, a woman's moustache, flying rocks and dancing single seniors and you have "Intermission." … More

Critic Reviews for Intermission
"Intermission" is a bloke-and-smoke spin on "Love, Actually." It's for women seeking a romantic comedy that doesn't reduce relationships to cutesy-poo homilies. By adding shootouts and car chases, it's slso for guys who are just not that into goo, either.
A direção bem-humorada e a montagem ágil exploram bem o ótimo roteiro e o elenco impecável.
Dizzily paced and structured, the Irish import Intermission charms with a never-let-'em-see-you-sweat exuberance
The great thing about Intermission is that you barely have time to spot the gaps.
...the performances keep things moving, even through some of the more superfluous moments.
Una de esas que, al salir de la sala, te deja con la maravillosa sensación de haber disfrutado una buena película.
A well-acted and interesting dark comedy, but the convoluted writing becomes the big drawback.
Not real Irish, but the movie kind: the latest to stumble off the [John] Ford assembly-line.
It doesn't add up to much profundity and tries too hard to be amusingly quirky.
Such are the dangers of teaching foreign cultures to yelp like Reservoir Dogs.
Attentive viewers will be rewarded with several intriguing story lines, a host of fine performances and a darn good time at the movies.
Intermission may be more Love Actually-familiar than Robert Altman-intricate but is ultimately engaging on its own terms.
Intermission bursts with the energy of a documentary filmed on the run with a stolen camera.
It's a sign of a well-written movie when all of the individual episodes carry equal weight.
Crowley's group isn't much fun to spend time with, making viewers yearn for an intermission as his Dublin train wreck unfolds.
Promising stuff all around, and the plot threads intersect in consistently satisfying ways. But Crowley and writer Mark O'Rowe never know when to leave well enough alone.
Intermission is the first movie in ages to show us what Irish native Hollywood star Farrell is capable of.
Audience Reviews for Intermission
Lots of great stories and plots and reveals and quirks and weirdnesses, but I can't say I remember much of it all.More
A very interesting ensemble drama. I loved a lot about most of the stories, but there were some that were not so great. It had a great sense of humor thrown in that was brilliantly played out by the actors. Cillian Murphy was definitely the standout, being a completely lovable loser.More
After one of the greatest and most unexpected openings to a film I've ever seen the film is off to a good start. It begins as though it may be some kind of Irish Mike Leigh film. Unfortunately it goes down a convoluted route of too many characters in an intertwining plot similar to Lock, Stock. The performances and execution are both brilliant. It's an impressive looking film with lots to like unfortunately there isn't a single character one can relate to. Rather than blurring the lines between good and bad most people are just scum or act in irritating ways. It hurts a film that's script is in dire need of surgery. Still it manages to nail dark/disturbing comedy.More
