What could have been a turning point was instead a footnote of Irish cinema, seen now to be a presciently accurate assessment of Ireland's turbulent national character at a pivotal time of transition.

Lennon's analysis is always lucid but only skims the surface, and Coutard appears more interested in people than politics.

This 1968 survey of Irish life remains noteworthy for its historical perspective, sardonic tone, lively structure and finely etched black and white cinematography.

If the film's cultural work is finished, its historical place will always be secure.
