Audience Reviews for The Irish Pub

  • Nov 29, 2014
    A must see if you are thinking of making a tour of traditional Irish pubs. It may or may not encourage you. This is an authentic portrait, fairly unvarnished, with amusing anecdotes, real people and moments of characteristic music. It listens at length to the publicans and their ageing customers, usually the men at the bar. Old values are preserved unmoving, the interiors are thickly lined with dark, fading memorabilia. If you are hoping for a lot of hilarious jokes, Irish dancing and rousing song after song, it is not that, but more for the quiet, sombre wit and way of being, which has its own rules and honours. The love for those that went before is strong. The publicans are firmly in their place until, as one of them says, they'll be going too. Old Celtic traces appear in the heavy framed bodies, the oral history and musical speech. People from countries of the Irish diaspora may perceive how the Irish pub culture was one source of their modern life, for better or worse, after it grew in its new soil. A film to touch Irish hearts, to let others see to some depth beyond the stereotypes; and make yet others want to get out of there as soon as they can.
