Irish cinema gets it right.
Una from Dublin, 30 Jun 2007
Brutal, touching, funny, frightening, and wonderful. Definitely 90 twisted minutes you won't forget. Murphy and Cassidy play teenagers who have been inseparable from birth, until their disturbing mental states cause so much concern that Cassidy's character Sinead is sent away. Murphy, whose obsession with Cassidy's character is all-consuming, pursues her. But Cassidy's ability to see a world outside of the relationship she has with Murphy leads to a brutal end. Fantastic.
Irish Movie tells tale of tragedy
Gerard from Limerick, 15 Feb 2013
This was a well acted, well directed, innovative film telling the story of a fated couple. But despite all it's virtues it was difficult to watch. It took an artistic approach to the problem of a character inherently damaged and somehow didn't manage to engage us in the tragedy. It seems to hover and flag before the end. Maybe it should have been simpler, or perhaps less violent. But the talents of all concerned was unmistakeable.
Disturbing but fascinating

Disturbing portrayal of a deteriorating teenage mind and the changing relationship between two people whose world has consisted only of themselves since early childhood. I was gradually drawn more and more into the characters as the film progressed. Well-scripted and well directed. Good performances from both leads. An odd film, but one that fascinates.

one of the worst films i have ever seen. the affected dialogue (third person with a kind of deconstructed grammar) is unbearably irritating. both of the main actors play it well in fairness, but it's a really trite and tiresome 'struggle of becoming adult' mess.
Not for me.

I watched this with my partner and it was ok. I am not sure what I think of it but it was not for me. Great acting but quiet heavy. This is just what I think maybe if I watch it again my review might change but not sure if I can sit through it again.
