Movie Info

Pig (Cillian Murphy) and Runt (Elaine Cassidy) born on the same day, in the same hospital, moments apart. Twins, all but by bloodline. Inseparable from birth, they are almost telepathic. They are one, needing no one else, inhabiting a delicate, insular and dangerous world where they make their own rules and have their own language. But days before their 17th birthday the balance of their world begins to shift. Pig's sexual awakening and jealousy begins to threaten their private universe.

    This movie was a strange jumble of awkward and "artistic" moments between Cassidy and Murphy, strange plot, and basically no reason. Mainly, I just wanted to know why Runt stuck with Pig so long.

    Completely original. I loved the decline of sanity in Cillian Murphy throughout the film, great acting as always. The story is really intense, yet fun. You become so enthralled in the characters that you can't wait to see what happens when their world comes crashing down. It's a romantic tragedy that takes you all the way.

    I watched this in Dublin when it first came out in 2002, before it was released around the rest of Europe. It is Kirsten Sheridan's directorial debut (daughter of the great Jim Sheridan) and as such a first effort I thought it was breath-taking. Based on a play by Enda Walsh (who also wrote the script), it retains some of the theatrical based- on- dialogue structure but it's also sparkling and dancing in bursts of grand, twisted laughter. The imagery is stunning at times and the performances by Cillian Murphy (that you have seen as a secondary character in the latest Batman films) and Elain Cassidy (whom most of you now recognize from "Harper's Island") were brilliant, to say the least. I know I am generous for giving it a 4 out of 5 but it really resonated with me at the time and the experience in front of the silver screen was amazing. In Grece it was only released in DVD.

    Love in it's most dysfunctional psychotic form. Cillian Murphy's gaze alone is frightening. Runt: It's blue. Blues the colour o'love.
