THE FLAG

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - SEVEN DAYS | FILM -

★★ Di­rected by De­clan Recks. Star­ring Pat Shortt, Moe

Dun­ford, Ruth Bradley, Brian Glee­son, Si­mone Kirby, Sor­cha

Cu­sack Broad, harm­less com­edy con­cern­ing an Ir­ish builder (Shortt) who de­cides to re­cover] the Ir­ish flag – now in a Bri­tish army bar­racks – that his grand­fa­ther once flew in the GPO. The ex­cel­lent cast are all as charm­ing as we have come to ex­pect. But the jokes are so clunky, the plot so fool of holes and the car­i­ca­tures of the English as toffs, hooli­gans or ec­centrics so awk­ward that it fast be­comes im­pos­si­ble to make al­lowances. 12A, gen re­lease, 84 min
