Pavee Lackeen: The Traveller Girl (2005)
Critic Reviews for Pavee Lackeen: The Traveller Girl
Here gritty realism meets a more poetic symbolism to expose Winnie's marginalised status without ever resorting to sentiment, preaching or indeed cliché.
More documentary than drama even as lyric images whisper past . . . slowly burns itself into the memory.
Ogden gets impressive performances from his cast, particularly from Winnie, whose sad-eyed little face will stay with you long after you leave the cinema.
A harrowing film portrait of a ten-year old Irish Traveller whose life is constricted by poverty and prejudice.
It's the complete opposite of Bresson's Mouchette and the Dardennes' Rosetta: a not-so-dense or musky fog that's easily parted and forgotten.
Couldn't get into this one.
