"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.

A gritty Irish Love Actually. No, you heard right...

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.

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.

A solidly acted ensemble piece that wants to emulate the edgy shock/comedy of Trainspotting and Snatch but never quite finds its groove.
