    Only got to this now. A fantastic tale of innocence. Dublin city centre really looks fabulous at Christmas. The car chase is one of my favourite scenes from a film in recent memory and the use of Bob Dylan is superb. Really funny cameo from Stephen Rea.

    A bittersweet tale about two Irish kids who both live in abusive families who run away to Dublin. The film is a gritty yet tender coming-of-age drama about survival and the human spirit. I loved it.

    From dullness to adventurous, from B/W to colors. Interesting premise but the execution is not good.

    For a low budget coming-of-age drama, the Irish film "Kisses" is a fantastic example of how to do a film right. Led by a couple of superb performances from amatuer child actors Kelly O'Neill and Shane Curry, "Kisses" has a brilliant contrast between the dark and gritty realism, and the fantasy world of childhood, that makes this film a very fun ride. It also contains a great Bob Dylan thread throughout the entire film. A very nice film.

    A good coming of age drama about two young lovers which also feels like a modern time fable. Lance Daly's film is sweet and tender but also a gritty exploration of loss of innocence brought ambitiously to the screen with an admirable visual style, most notably the choice to use both black and white shots and colour ones.
