5 out of 10 The Quiet man
Sylvia from Tipperary, 12 Nov 2010
This is a movie that captures the essense of tradional Ireland. The humour and storyline are ageless. I have a young Americain girl staying with me ,she adored it I am in my 70s and still loved every moment of the film. The day after we saw it we both said that we were sad. it was like having a box of chocolate,s waiting to be eaten, you so looked forward to having them. and when there are gone you feel empty nothing to look forward to

4 out of 10 The Quiet Man
James from Limerick, 19 Nov 2008
Ode to an Ireland that may have existed for about the duration of this movie. Wayne plays Sean Thornton, second gen mick back to the auld sod to secure a bit of peace from a dark secret. O'Hara steals the show, though, as his fiery intended, determined to claim her birthright to her dowry, in spite of the rising emnity between her brother and Thornton. Utterly harmless, truly funny and quite diverting.

3.5 out of 10 a must for Irish people!(but good for everyone,oc)
Mattia from Cork, 06 Mar 2008
John Wayne in a different role, even if he plays an American... Old style comedy, but good just for that, if you like it! Very good acting, good rhythm and wonderful sceneries, magically filmed by Ford, clearly in love with his native land

What's it about....
One of John Ford's most cherished projects, THE QUIET MAN took years to finance but became one of his greatest box-office successes and an enduringly beloved classic. John Wayne stars as Sean Thornton, a retired American boxing champion trying to put tragedy behind him by returning to Innisfree, the bucolic Irish village of his birth. He purchases his birthplace from its current owner, enraging the wealthy and bellicose Red Will Danaher (Victor McLaglen), who had designs...
