quietearth [Celluloid 02.02.10] Ireland (Republic of) post apocalyptic movie trailer news drama



I've been waiting to see footage on this film for months now, as we've been sitting on a review from our own Alan MaxWell for some time now, and he calls this "a distinctive vision of the future". Well finally, co-director Richard West passed off the exclusive trailer to us this morning so we can share with you now what we've been looking forward too. Now, if I could only talk them into a screener.

Northern Ireland, the future: in a post apocalyptic landscape of decaying towns and primitive technology, two people set out on a journey. Ulster has become a depopulated, feudal and dangerous wilderness where people have forgotten the past and are confused about the ruins that surround them. They distract themselves with improvised ceremonies and games but feel threatened by a world they do not understand. What will await the travellers at the end of their journey?

Trailer after the break!

Looks interesting. I like the costume design a lot and the quirky characters seems likable enough.

I saw this movie when it premiered at the Movie House Cinema on the Dublin Road in Belfast in March, 2009. I really loved it. It is at times very funny, poignant and ultimately very moving. It also has a great soundtrack. Looking forward to seeing it again.

I saw it there too and have to agree with the comment above. It's a pity it was only on for one night. Does anyone know if it will be shown again or if it's available on DVD?. Some great local talent to watch out for in the future.

What will await the travellers? Is that a rhetorical question? What awaits them is what awaits us all: DEATH. Don't watch it if you find that truth unpalatable. Yes, at last, some truth - there is no meaning, so stop looking, everything's already dead. The film is a masterpiece. The sound mix was particularly good.

Meh. I'm sorry, I love low budget, but meh.
