Director Alan Parker, known for such excellent musical films as BUGSY MALONE, FAME (the original version) and EVITA, excels with this contemporary slice of life set in the Dublin slums. He earned a BAFTA award as best director for this film, plus the film earned BAFTA & Golden Globe nominations as best film, and the trio of screenwriters won the BAFTA award for best screenplay. (Beware though - the dialogue is very crude and could be offensive to many viewers). Parker, like the aspiring band manager Jimmy Rabitte in the film, has taken a group of unknown (at the time)singers and musicians and has created a musical ensemble of note.
Jimmy (Robert Arkins) builds his dream band around two of his friends, guitarists Outspan Foster (Glen Hansard) and Derek Scully (Kenneth McCluskey). A newspaper ad in the local paper attracts scores of young hopefuls, but essentially the band members join by accident rather than design. One is an older trumpet player with professional experience (Johnny Murphy as Joey "The Lips" Fagan)who mentors the younger members. Undoubtedly the star of the band (and the film) is lead vocalist Deco Cuffe (BAFTA nominated Andrew Strong)who is ably assisted by the girl singers Bernie (Bronagh Gallagher), Imelda (Angeline Ball) and Natalie (Maria Doyle). Unfortunately for the band, Deco's ego soon gets the better of him and bitter rivalries destroy their fledgeling hopes.
The score is marvellous, the story pefectly believable and the cinematography suitably bleak and dreary in contrast to the vibrancy of the young musicians.

I love this film! Love the music and the plot, so real to life
