All Critics (15) | Top Critics (4)

A charming, moving and over-too-soon portrait of a country, and of what it means to have a longer than expected life.

Fegan may not unearth why the Emerald Isle is home to so many spirited centenarians, but their presence makes for a lovely and inspiring experience in the enjoyable documentary "Older Than Ireland."

The movie doesn't linger on any single topic, happy or sad. With so many lives to look back on, Fegan moves briskly from theme to theme.

It's often said that the Irish, blessed with the gift of gab, can be splendid raconteurs. You'll find generous evidence to that effect here. And a bit of poetry as well.

[Alex] Fegan profiles the people who stayed behind, which makes his film unavoidably sad, but they're also the unheralded citizens who kept the old sod going when everyone else jumped ship.

August 18, 2017 | Full Review…

Alex Fegan's documentary Older Than Ireland pursues a simple but very effective premise - interviewing Irish men and women who, at 100-plus, are older than the state itself.
