Although gloomy, both literally and figuratively, and a little depressing, this is an excellent movie. The acting is absolutely wonderful, from the smallest child to the oldest character. This movie is a vivid portrayal of Ireland's urban poor in the '40s (and probably things haven't changed a lot), as well as what a family will do to survive; class prejudice; Catholic-Protestant prejudice; and Northern-Southern Ireland prejudice.
