His & Hers
The Irish have their own word, ‘Craic’, to describe their wise-cracking patter. Yet director Ken Wardop moves away from the stereotype of manly, Guinness-fuelled sociability and lets the women (from nappies to nursing home) do the talking, proving them as charming, candid and often suprisingly philosophical about their lives. As they divulge smile-inducing anecdotes about their relationships with fathers, sons and beloveds, their individual stories come to compose an epic love-letter to Ireland. Yet while lending the film a therapeutic tonal coherence, this constant chain of devotion also makes their lives feel a little one-note.
