Quite simply, the best Irish movie, I’ve ever seen. Not just Irish language but Irish! Sublime cinematography, direction and acting. Based on Claire Keegan’s book Foster, this tells the story of Cait a withdrawn little girl from a poor big rural family who during her mother’s latest pregnancy is packed off to live with a older rural couple who are relatives. Catherine Clinch is a revelation as the title character and Carrie Crowleyis her usual reliable self and Andrew Bennett in his role as the taciturn substitute father developing a relationship with Cait who delivers a powerful emotional punch. This movie had me welling up unexpectedly a number of times and there are so many nostalgic moments in relation to late 70s early 80s Ireland in relation to tv, sport and clothes. It is a joyous film that I cannot recommend highly enough it hypnotised me . I’m not staying quiet about this!
There are times when an image or a scene from a movie stays with you. And often, it’s not the bangs, crashes or stunts that live long in the memory, it’s the simple things, done almost anonymously that linger.
The Quiet Girl is an absolute delight. Shot in a very un-obtrusive and realistic way, it tells the story of Cait who is sent to live with some relatives as her mother prepares to have yet another baby. At home, times are hard, she doesn’t quite fit in, and it’s obvious she’s struggling at school.
The difference in the attention and love shown towards her with her temprorary family is is painfully obvious, and the delight that Cait takes in learning some of the most mundane tasks, like vacuuming and peeling vegetables, is beautiful. You see, it’s just that no one has ever taken the time with her before to do these simple tasks. And that is heartbreaking.
I could wax lyrical about this film for hours, but won’t. I just urge you to give this a try. The main performances from Catherine Clinch,Carrie Crowley and Andrew Bennett are perfection. Understated and real.
And that scene I mentioned at the start? A biscuit being left on a kitchen table made my heart sing.
