Where the sea used to be
Recent but little-known feature about two mismatched brothers on Xmas Eve in Dublin. It's like a bland, middle-class Adam and Paul with a few funny moments but mostly dull. Linear story where they return to Howth and meet the neighbours in pubs before heading home. The usual plinky piano soundtrack music, badly-shot night scenes, uneven acting, and a cast that don't really gel. The lead guy is a chemist who worries about his marriage while everyone else try to make him look dull. Best scene: the pub with the two customers slagging everyone. Has the look and feel of a cheap short film but still a promising debut feature.
