Cillian Murphy Stands up for The Wind that Shakes the Barley

This was my view (with a zoom lens) for the North American premiere of the Palme d'Or winning film at this year's Cannes Film Festival. Despite being virgin to Canada's soils, The Wind That Shakes the Barley has actually been playing in Ireland and the UK to big crowds.

There are plenty of reviews and interviews with director Ken Loach floating around the internet, so I won't bother adding to the noise here.

During the post film Q&A, Cillian Murphy paid homage to the director and joked that the film had no script - or at least one that the actors were privy to. To be honest, it kind of showed. I found the film to be a bit uneven. (although it's still worth seeing)

Every year at TIFF, I get tickets to the Palme d'Or winner only to be slightly disappointed and I guess this year wasn't an exception.
