Irina Palm 2008

Irina Palm

Critics Consensus

A strong performance from Faithfull anchors this perverse and lethargic -- but ultimately thought-provoking -- Garbarski drama.

    Irina Palm is a perverse tale of the odd sacrifice of a desperate grandmother for her terminally-ill grandson. Grace amid shame. Genuinely sentimental. Well-delivered.

    Irina Palm was not at all what I was expecting it to be & I know I definitely didnt expect to like it as much as I did.

    Moving and entertaining, but oversimplified film carried entirely by a fantastic cast. Marianne Faithfull is an absolute must-see, her performance is nothing short of sublime. Unfortunately the rest of the film is not able to match her stunning portrayal of "Irina Palm".

    I would have preferred to see Jenny Agutter's character expend the effort, and Marianne Faithful's character hold the bucket...but unfortunately, there was no bucket, though she did go though a lot of Kleenex. Anyway, it was humorous to see Marianne portray disdain for something that surely came so intuitively to her in real life behind the music :) Did anyone keep what was left of that Heath Bar to sell on Ebay or did David and Mick consume it from both ends to meet in the middle?
