Calvary

"Too many little bones", says Father James at some point during the film while eating a fish. That's how life is, too. So much pain, so many obstacles. But you have to fight for what you are believe in, and never give up. Yet, this film, despite being mellow, low-key dramatic and melancholic, is also very funny and humorous. And that is a very difficult feature to achieve in film in general. Calvary is a fresh cinematic breath from Ireland, not unlike those stormy Atlantic winds. Highly recommended.
