  • Though never managing to surprise us much, this brisk encounter with the living past has moments of charm and the occasional fresh perspective.

  • Fegan draws on the wealth of Irish beauty: fairyland landscapes, quaint interiors, gaily painted doors and windows and the people who live there. He puts these snapshots together with a puckish wit.

  • It's a glorious film, in large part because it is a reminder of in what low regard we often hold those of "a certain age."

  • 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.
