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.
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.
