Oh, Mr Porter!
Strange that this famous comedy set along the Border never gets a mention in Irish cinema? Far funnier than recent Film Board efforts it's set at a train station in Buggleskelly. There are lots of crashes, arguments, and a gun-running operation. Will Hay gets sent to Ireland so as not to live with a relative and he tries to big up his little station. Except it's not even on the map! Some good character actors appear in this movie and it's recommended.
Rather sad article in today's Irish Independent newspaper about Ireland's most overrated female film director. She's been abroad...
