This movie is so good that our cinema critic gave it a score of 10 | Israel today


Holding nine Oscar nominations, "Ghosts of Inishreen" by screenwriter-director Martin McDonagh, is nothing less than a brilliant masterpiece • The acting is wonderful, the production is spectacular and the result - a special gem that deals with the biggest issues of human existence

With nine Oscar nominations and reviews pouring in from here until a new announcement, "Ghosts of Inishreen" is one of the most talked about and celebrated films of the past year.

The good news is that for a change - the hype is completely justified.

• The Oscar ceremony is underway: this is the final list of nominees

• Colin Farrell: "Since rehab, I don't take anything for granted, it's a chapter in my life that I feel lucky to have passed safely"

• Golden Globes: "Ghosts of Innsrin" and Spielberg are the big winners

The film of the screenwriter-director Martin McDonagh ("Bruges", "Three Signs Outside Ebbing, Missouri") is indeed a brilliant and deceptively simple masterpiece.

A small and special gem that talks about the biggest issues of human existence - such as friendship, loneliness and self-realization - in a virtuosic way that manages to be both funny and horrifying.

The plot takes place on a magical island off the coast of Ireland, exactly one hundred years ago, and centers on two friends: Padraic (Colin Farrell) and Colm (Brendan Gleeson).

The two usually visit the local pub every day, to drink and chat until the wee hours of the night.

But one day - their voice announces to his friend that no more.

He doesn't want to keep wasting his time with Padreic.

He just doesn't like it anymore, he says, and he prefers to use the years he still has left to live doing meaningful things, like writing music, for example.

Questions about friendship, loneliness and self-actualization.

from the movie,

Poor, shocked Padreic takes the news hard.

He was deeply offended, and you can certainly understand him.

But their stubborn voice did not retreat.

Furthermore, he declares that if Padrek continues to bully and insists

on not leaving him alone - he will start cutting his fingers with scissors one by one.

A particularly crazy act, especially when you consider that this will prevent him from continuing to play the violin.

"Ghosts of Inishreen" is a perfect film in every respect.

The writing, the photography, the music (by Carter Burwell, the regular composer of the Cohen brothers) - all rise to the highest level here.

But what really takes the film to another league and makes it unforgettable is the acting - not only by Farrell and Gleeson, who also starred together in the great "Brooz", and who here do a minor, restrained and instructive job in its accuracy - but also by Carrie Condon (who plays Padraic's sister) and Barry Keoghan (who plays the heartbroken village idiot).

All four are nominated for Oscars.

I wish everyone could win.

What a wonderful movie.
