this is an interesting documentary about a movie director, Patrick O'Malley, who has had an interesting career. he is a comic actor who has directed two movies that have received high praise and have given him fame and fortune. the film was very well done and made me think that the filmmaker was very intelligent and knew a lot about the Irish history. the film is also interesting because it tells the story of the director and his career and also how some people were against him. the film was shot in Ireland, and the director himself lives in Ireland. i think the director was very smart and well educated because he made a movie about a cultural taboo in Irish society. this movie is worth watching.

So, that's it. Two hours of my life I can never get back. The true story of Patrick was one of the reasons why I found myself writing this film. I felt that it would be a good opportunity to finally speak out on the topic of euthanasia and the reasons behind it. I can't understand why this subject is still not considered in the general population. To me, the idea of euthanasia has always been about mercy and compassion. It is about not killing or inflicting pain on others and it should be the right decision for each individual. This is why this film is very important and important to those who feel they have no hope. It's also important to me because I was affected by this topic and still have the pain and loneliness from my friend's death. The film was well-made and well-written. The actors did a great job and I think the story was very well-told. But I think the most important thing to me was the effect it had on me and the message I got from it. I would recommend this film to anyone who is still suffering from grief. It is very important to say that people who have had a loved one in the same situation are supposed to make the right decision and I believe that's what this film shows. It is the duty of each one of us to try to understand what would happen if we were to have that kind of a situation and I believe it's our duty to do it. This film shows that if we try to think of the facts, we are not supposed to be prejudiced. In fact, we should try to understand the person as well as the situation and make the right decision. This is a very important film. I hope everyone can see it. It is very important that we remember that these are the people that we are dealing with and that we are supposed to help them. There is a lot of emotion and sadness and pain in this film. I can't wait to watch it again and again. 8/10

A documentary about a quiet and rarely talked about figure of Irish history. The Irish are perhaps the most interesting group in the world today. It is believed that Ireland has produced more Nobel laureates than any other country. It is thought that all the Nobel Prizes have been awarded to Irish people. The historian Denis O'Brien was the first Irish to win a Nobel Prize. He is perhaps the most well known of the Irish Nobel laureates. Patrick Pearse was a highly respected leader of the Irish Republican Army (IRA) in the 1940s. His was an armed rebellion against British rule. He was captured and executed by the British Army in Dublin on Easter Sunday, 1916. Some argue that his murder was a planned event to justify the Irish Independence movement. His supporters argue that he was killed by the British Army. The documentary shows the personal history of Patrick Pearse, his childhood, family, childhood friends and family, and his political activities. Patrick Pearse was a quiet and modest man who is mainly remembered for his support of the IRA. He was a supporter of the IRA and many people consider that he was more an agent of the British government than an IRA man. He is thought to be the most successful leader of the IRA. The documentary shows the violence and betrayal of the British Army during the Easter Rising of 1916. They show that the British Army was attempting to capture the place where the Rising took place, Rathgar. They show that there was an IRA presence and some IRA members were captured by the British Army. They also show the British Army's attempts to capture the leaders of the IRA. The film shows the propaganda that was used to convince the Irish people that Patrick Pearse was the leader of the Irish nation. The British army put a lot of effort into trying to capture the leaders of the IRA. They were captured, tortured, and killed by the IRA. The film also shows the police force in Ireland. They show that there were many police forces in Ireland at the time. They show that they were poorly trained and had poor police procedures. They show that there was an army police force and that there were many soldiers in the army police. They also show the Irish republican movement. They show that the Irish republican movement was a movement of political prisoners, not terrorists. They show that there were many people who joined the IRA to defend the rights of their nation. They show that the Irish republican movement was a movement of radical and violent nationalists who fought for the rights of their nation. The film ends with an interesting scene where the British Army recaptured the place where the Rising took place. They captured many leaders of the IRA including William O'Conor. He was the most popular leader of the IRA at the time and many people considered that he was a leader of the IRA. The film is well made and informative. It is well researched and shows all the sides of the story. The film was well made and informative.

I really like this documentary. It's not a complete hit-and-miss story. It's really well done, and there are some parts that are really fascinating and all that stuff, but it also has the tendency to be less focused than the other parts of the documentary. It's not the only documentary about Irish history, but it's the only one I've seen that focuses on the economic effects of the famine of the 1930's on the Irish people. It's definitely not a perfect documentary, but it's pretty good. I really liked the fact that the film has Irish actors. I don't know what I expected going in, but it certainly was good. There was some really good stuff. One of the things I particularly liked was the soundtrack. It was very interesting and it was very well done. The music itself is not Irish, but it's obviously not English, and I'm sure that has something to do with the historical quality of the music. It's a really good and important piece of film. There are some really good scenes in the film. One of the highlights of the film is the song, "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood," sung by the band, The Carpenters. It's very moving and you'll be moved to tears at some point in the film. It's one of the best scenes in the film. There are also some really great things in the film. One of the best scenes is a scene in the documentary, where Pat was on the radio and they talk about the famine. The viewer hears Pat talking about how the country was fucked up, and he tries to tell people that Ireland is in a great financial position. You'll get a really good look at the famine through this song. I think the film is very important, because it shows that the Irish people were a people who were angry about their government's actions during the time that they were starving and starving, and that was a very important part of the film. It also shows that the government really took a very bad economic turn during that period. It shows that the government was very, very close to the real estate market and it was getting really, really rich off of the Irish people. The film is also important because it shows the anger that the Irish people had towards the Irish government and it shows the rise of Sinn Fein. You'll see how they were creating trouble for the Irish government and how Sinn Fein became a very important part of Irish history. It also shows the relationship between the Irish people and the IRA. The film is definitely worth seeing, but it is not perfect. It's not as comprehensive as it could have been and the documentary is a bit too long. It was a little bit too long, but it was still an excellent documentary.

I am a native Irish person and I love this film. For people who have never lived in Ireland, this film shows the extreme poverty, the rough and lonely life in the countryside, the famines of the past, and the hard times that followed. The film is interesting, moving and, most of all, sad. You can see the sadness in the faces of the people and they all seem to be in a state of complete despair. This film is a great reminder of the past and a reminder of the future.

I saw this film on TV last night. I was riveted from the start. It was beautifully produced and the story was compelling. The only fault was I wished that it had stayed on the television rather than a trailer. I would really love to see it again, so I could find out more about the legacy of Patrick. The British film industry was under a lot of pressure when this film was released. I think this film highlights that pressure and the media reaction to it. However I think the public is not aware of how much pressure there is on British film companies. We can't have a film industry like that without a public that has a strong attachment to films. I am so proud to be Irish and to be part of this wonderful and remarkable world. The last ten years have been fantastic and I am happy to have been part of it. The film is well made. I would love to see it on the big screen, but it has to be on TV. I hope that it will be given the opportunity to be shown in the US and Europe.

This documentary is remarkable for the way it uses a combination of archival footage, interviews, and archival research to reconstruct the life of Patrick Pearse, a movement of Irish nationalists who fought for Irish independence from England and for the right to self-determination. The documentary also recounts the trials and tribulations of Pearse's life, including the many years of imprisonment in the infamous Maghaberry prison (now known as Wrexham). The documentary is so well done that you are hard-pressed to look away. The documentary was filmed by a team of journalists, film directors and a master of photography. I am a huge fan of the Irish film industry, and this documentary was well done. It should be shown in schools, colleges, and universities. People who have not seen it should see it.

I recently purchased this DVD in the name of my daughter, who is studying at a high school in the U.K. She will probably never see this movie again. I bought this movie mainly because I heard that it was amazing and I didn't have anything better to watch. I was disappointed, however. The first hour or so of the movie was more interesting than anything else. The relationship between the two children in the story was a bit unbelievable, but I think it was the only part of the movie I didn't like. I did not find the music, acting, or directing very impressive. As a bonus, the commentary was a real winner, as there was so much about the movie I didn't know. Also, a part of the commentary where the author explained some of the details of the story was actually pretty interesting. The movie is definitely worth seeing, however, only if you have nothing else to do.

This film is one of the best I have ever seen. The acting is very good, and it really shows how dangerous the situation was for young soldiers during World War 2. However, one of the biggest reasons for this is the actual film itself. The soldiers were captured, interrogated, and tortured by the Nazis during the war. They are shown real life horrors that most people would never imagine. It's not a film that will bring you up, it's just a good story told by a good director. Great job to the director!

I'm a bit of a history buff and knew very little about Ireland during its time of upheaval and the civil war. As I sat down in front of the screen, I was unprepared for the extent of the suffering inflicted upon Ireland by this brutal regime. The images of the famine that swept through Ireland in the late 1930s and early 1940s are horrific, but I found the film's focus on the archival material to be more engaging than what I thought was going to be a cinematic portrait of these events. There are some amazing interviews with people who were directly affected by the famine. I have not seen "Genocide in Rwanda" or "Empire of the Sun", but I am hoping that they will bring the scope and impact of the Irish famine to the screen in the near future. I recommend this film for those who have an interest in this period of history.

I've always enjoyed Irish movies (Belfast or even Ireland) so when I learned this one was on HBO I thought it was a perfect fit. With that said, I did want to watch this as I was able to see a similar Irish movie with my girlfriend. For the most part this film is interesting, but there is a lot of humor in this. One of the most enjoyable parts is when Patrick and the Black Watch are at the bar. Patrick is a hero because he is a hero. Patrick's fight against the Irish is like that of The Godfather. He fights to bring honor to his family, especially to his father. That's just a taste of what the humor is in this. I have to mention one thing that I really liked about this movie. One of the characters, The Black Watch, is named after the Black Eagles, a student of the Battle of the Boyne, a student who led the way. A reference to the epic battle that had so many casualties. I enjoyed this movie and I would recommend this to anyone. This movie is worth watching.

I am a fan of Richard Gere and I was excited to see this movie because of the great reviews it had received. When I saw that it was a 10, I was almost in tears. There is a great deal of information that is not readily available for people outside of Ireland. The story is compelling and I was impressed with the direction and cinematography. I have been to Ireland many times and I have never before witnessed such a beautiful landscape and such a beautiful spirit. Many people have commented on how "shaky" it was, and that is true. I am not a camera operator and I am an avid traveler. I often wonder if I was being too tight in my seat, as the camera may have been shaking. The pacing was perfect and I felt that the director was not looking for action or a lot of physical contact. The story is very human and sensitive and is not to be taken too seriously. There were many moving scenes that I felt were very important to the story and I was moved. I can't imagine how much the director sacrificed on the production side to make this movie. I can't wait to see the DVD because I plan to buy it. To me it was a great movie because it is about a real person who has a gift of healing. There are many, many stories about saints and miracles but this story is one of love and forgiveness. It is not a movie about miracles or miracles but about love and forgiveness. Richard Gere gave an amazing performance. I think that everyone who sees this movie will enjoy it and I would encourage everyone to see it.

This is a great movie, and a very good one. It shows a very complex relationship between a drug addict and a recovering alcoholic. And the addict, though is trying to make up for his past mistakes, has a very dark side of his personality that can cause serious harm to a loved one. But in the end he goes through with his redemption. The reason this movie is so great is because it is a very good portrayal of the life of one Irish man who did not turn to drink and drugs. He really tried to turn his life around and took responsibility for his actions. But, in the end, he came back to the very same thing he had done before. I really loved the way the Irish were portrayed in this movie. The movie is very good because it is based on a true story. It shows the good that Ireland has to offer the world, and it gives a very clear picture of the human condition, of the good things and bad things that we can do to others and to ourselves. So watch this movie, and you will learn about the real life of a very complex human being who had no real future, and got a chance to turn his life around. I really hope that this movie gets some acclaim.

I was looking forward to this documentary as I was very interested in the work of Bernard Manning. His role in writing the novel 'The Spirit of St Patrick', about a different Irish-Catholic history and culture, had so much impact on me. The documentary was quite good and left a lot of questions unanswered, but there were also good parts that were good and good parts that were bad. A big question about this film, like many others, is about the ending. The film is very short and focused on the life of Bernard Manning, who, as the film points out, was always fighting to get more people to know about the Catholic Church and the history of Ireland. He was always the underdog, the one trying to keep his work from being banned, even when the Church was trying to censor it. He always got the Catholic Church to comply and sometimes, even if it was only in the smallest church, they would be happy to show the film. He was always the only one who did that, and when the film was finally released, it was when the Church was finally able to show it to the public. This was one of the more important moments in his life. This documentary is very good. It will definitely interest the Catholic Church as well as the Catholic education system, which had an almost complete blackout of this kind of information for many years. I hope this documentary will show people that, in fact, we all have the same mission and that we all have different roles in life, and that we all need to stand together for the good of humanity.

The director, Anthony Hopkins, has done a fantastic job capturing the atmosphere, the music, the actors, and the culture. The Irish people are portrayed in an amazing and authentic way, showing the real spirit of the people of Ireland. If you go to see this movie, you will find that the movie doesn't rely on special effects or shots, and it focuses on the spirit of the country, the people, and the history. The movie also doesn't use any acting techniques or dramatic moments. It focuses on the people and their spirits, and the story of the Patron Saint Patrick. The film starts with a slow-paced introduction of the Irish people, and it quickly shows the history of the people of Ireland and how the Patron Saint Patrick changed the lives of his people. It gives an insight on how the patron saint helped his people out of trouble and what his role in the history of Ireland. This is really cool, because the film doesn't rely on special effects, or special actors. It is a true history of the Patron Saint Patrick, showing the people's history and how he helped his people out of trouble. I also think that the acting is amazing, because the entire cast was amazing. I think that the real person who does the singing is amazing, and the characters and the people are incredible. You really feel for all the characters. There are a few scenes where there is a lot of darkness, and there is some strong language, and that can be off putting to some people, but I think that it adds to the atmosphere. Overall, the movie is great and I think it deserves more attention than it's getting.

I'm really amazed how this documentary turned out. It is quite simply amazing. I am a huge fan of the so-called Christian folk hero, the Irish patriot, the rugged lovable guy who always comes out on top, the all-American, and especially the hero, the perfect American. The film is the first non-fiction film to tackle the subject of Patrick's religious awakening. The film is very good. It is true that the film is a bit repetitive, because it does not really get into much detail of Patrick's life, but then, there is no point in filming him in the first place. We don't really need to know anything about him. His life is full of miracles, and this film really tells the story of that miracle. The film is very well done, and beautifully put together. If you don't know anything about Patrick, don't worry. I think the documentary is mostly for non-believers. It tells us the story of one of the most significant figures in Irish history, and it does so without proselytizing. It tells us about a man who didn't really believe in God, but, like all people, he was waiting for a miracle to come to his rescue. The film is a wonderful example of how to tell a story. It is a tribute to Patrick, but it is also a tribute to the filmmaker who has done so much with such a small budget. It is a great film. It is a testimony to the power of miracles and the power of one's faith.

I am a Catholic and I have followed the life of Patrick O'Brian and his stories from the days of the Eisteddfod to the present day. This film is a must watch for all of the faithful. I do not like what the Republican party is doing to the Catholic Church and I see nothing but contempt in the Republicans attitude towards their Irish relatives. Please, as we go forward, let the republican party stay away from the Irish people, their country and their culture. The rest of the world needs to know about their struggle for a republic.

I'm never afraid to watch a documentary and I have to admit, this one isn't too bad. What happens in our country in the short time span of a week is mind blowing and I didn't think it was possible to capture that in a documentary. This is a beautifully shot documentary with interviews, it is quite insightful and if you're into history, it will leave you pleasantly surprised. This is a MUST WATCH for anyone who's ever been a foreigner in Ireland and I think it's an important documentary to have.

The movie chronicles the life of one of Ireland's greatest nationalists and the man behind the gun. The time spent on the making of a historical documentary is wonderful. Not only does the movie cover his life, but the camera captures the beauty and majesty of Ireland. I'm particularly impressed with how the camera is able to capture the Irish countryside without ever leaving the camera. I'm not going to give away the ending, but it is satisfying and one of the best endings in movie history. If you are into documentaries, I would highly recommend this movie.

The documentary on my favourite Irish band, FACT, is a great show and well worth a watch. When I first heard of this documentary, I thought it would be more of a biographical documentary of the band. However, once I got into the film, I realized it was more about how the band had changed the world for the better, or at least for the better in the eyes of people who knew the band. The documentary talks about the band's road to the success of their first album "F* Your Face" and the way the band handled the press. The documentary shows how they developed the song "This Time Around" and even goes as far as the band performing it in a concert. At the end of the documentary, they go as far as to say that the band changed the world, so that's a pretty big statement. I would recommend this documentary to anyone who likes rock music, but if you're looking for a biographical documentary on a band, this documentary is not for you. The documentary starts off with a great performance on stage, so it's great to see how the band first came to fame. I also really liked the fact that they talked about the band's highs and lows, the band's struggles and they even show interviews with people who played with the band. However, they didn't give any real stories on the band itself, but they did talk about some other people. So, if you're looking for a documentary about a band, I would recommend this documentary. It is a great show, but I wouldn't recommend it if you want to watch a biographical documentary on a band. It's a good show but not a great documentary. I give the documentary 8/10.

I am Patrick was a great documentary about one of Ireland's greatest heroes. It was very touching to hear from Patrick's family, friends, and even the missionaries who traveled to Ireland to save his life. His struggle to become a well respected member of society was also shown through his writings and stories. His struggles in seeking his fame and gaining respect for his church and his ministry were amazing. I love how the story of Patrick goes back to his childhood and how his devotion and love of God and for his church and ministry is shown in his writing and stories. The movie was so powerful and I highly recommend it.

This is the second time I have seen this movie. The first time was in 2000 and I enjoyed it very much. Now I am going to give it another try. As for the others who commented that it is a documentary, I would like to state that the movie is full of real interviews and personal testimonies. It is also very inspiring, as well as entertaining. The humor is mostly dark and the subjects are, obviously, very sensitive. The people in the film are both people who are very aware and, at the same time, people who are very aware and very funny. The most important thing about the film is that it is the same regardless of age, nationality or nationality. It is not a documentary for one group of people. It is a film for all. In order to understand the director, you have to know the history of Ireland. There are many people who can relate to what the director is trying to say, but to each person it may take a few minutes to understand what the director is trying to say. In the end, I will definitely recommend it to everyone who has not seen it already, and I will say that it is a must watch.
