Awful movie about a group of musicians recording an album in Ireland and then visiting a festival in the States. Dull to watch, the songs are terrible, and none of the characters are likeable. It's about a young man who joins the band, tries to make them more commercial, but causes them to split up. It never gets out of first gear, you won't care what happens, and it gets tedious to watch. Not even one scene sparks or makes the movie interesting. Everyone is a total loser and it's not remotely funny. The kind of movie Aki Kaurismäki was making 25 years ago but he did it much better. The dead body on the raft scene was previously done in the 1950's movie The Vikings. Nothing the band do is particularly original and it all seems lame.

Rather sad article in today's Irish Independent newspaper about Ireland's most overrated female film director. She's been abroad...
