Superb

Synge's masterpiece, superbly acted and ingeniously shot. I regret the cuts in Act III, but they were necessary. Siobhan McKenna was one of the stars of the Abbey Theatre in Dublin, and an outstanding actress -- her Viola in Shakespeare's Twelfth Night and St. Joan in Shaw's play of the same name are available in audio book format, and are highly recommended. Though the great Cyril Cusack played the role of Christy Mahon -- the title character in Synge's play -- at the Abbey Theatre, I can't imagine anyone better suited for the role than Gary Raymond, McKenna's costar in this movie version. The entire cast is excellent, and the brogue is never too thick to be plainly intelligible to American ears. It's a shame this film is not available on DVD.

The very highest grade of Irish blarney....

A handsome young stranger (engagingly played by Gary Raymond) suddenly turns up in a remote coastal Irish village professing to be desperately fleeing ahead of the law after having murdered his own father by beating his head in. His lurid, high-spirited account very quickly earns the admiration of everyone in the local inn and stirs the lust of all the unattached women in the village, especially the fetching spinster running the inn (McKenna) and the aggressive man-starved widow Quin (March). However, the young hero's status changes abruptly when his old dad shows up just ahead of the police.

The strong regional flavor of this piece is the element that makes it so delightful and different. It overflows with the very highest grade of fluent Irish blarney. Gary Raymond, even if not Irish, is delightful as the irrepressible Christy Mahon and will leave a memorable impression on viewers.

Great version of this play

This was the best production I've ever seen of this wonderful play. Most of the lines were clearly enough spoken so that even an unprepared American could comprehend almost every sentence. While I'm not Irish, and therefore don't have the sensitivities or the complete comprehension of linguistic nuance that a native speaker would have, the play and its expression in this case seemed entirely authentic to me.
