i distinctly remember watching this trailer and saying to myself "oh god, that looks terrible" and yet i put it on the queue. good job me. my first thought was closer to target. the exterior shots are really beautiful, but the story was pretty lame. irish movies always have this depressing sadness in their ambiance. even if the story is meant to be heart warming. i'm not entirely sure this was supposed to be heart warming because SPOILER ALERT turns out that the woman in question is really a romanian drug mule. that kind of takes out the magical gas out of the bag. i guess there are worse movies i could have spent nap time watching, but i think this one was pretty forgettable.
