Atom User Reviews for Belfast
Loved the music and the photography of the movie . Didn’t understand much of the Irish English language spoken .
Loved it. The re-creation of the period was spot-on down to the smallest detail, and the black and white filming added to our total immersion in the time. Actors were wonderful, especially young Jude Hill and veteran actor Ciaran Hinds.
Great historical portrayal of the beginning of the modern day Troubles from the family perspective. Not everyone wanted to be in the civil war.
Very sweet movie! Great acting & beautiful cinematography. Kenneth Branagh did a great job creating this.
With it's black and white palette, stellar performances, and beautiful message, Belfast is the ultimate must-see experience for anyone looking for joy and hope.
It was enjoyable
Heartwarming film that will also make you think.
I love that it was in black and white. If your children don't know about the civil war between Protestants and Catholics I would about it before and after. Only a small amount of time focuses on the violence.
So many films are described as love letters — to places, to time, to people, to even the idea of cinema — that the phrase has almost been rendered meaningless. But Belfast really is the quintessential cinematic love letter.
The micro-homilies proliferate, the stagy drama heightens, and subtlety gives way to a little pandering. You can forgive these transgressions – there’s never any doubt that Branagh has put his heart into this endeavor – but they keep it from achieving greatness.
The film is not a masterpiece, but a memory box. Comforting, inviting, and one you won’t mind keeping close.
