Enjoyed this. It's part crime caper, part love story, part quirky love letter to Dublin. I'll admit I put the subtitles on as some of the slang was a bit tricky for me to follow, haha, though I think I can guess what "sporty" means ; ) Liked the way the different stories fitted together, and didn't feel like there were any weak links in the cast. A couple of clever surprises along the way too. Recommend.
Apparently they remade this with Jude Law, in a casting move that will surprise precisely nobody.
An interesting, understated, engaging little number, thanks in no small part to Caine and his charisma (not a euphemism, know what I mean?).
A heads-up: despite Alfie/Caine's roguish charm and constant knowing asides to the camera, this is actually a Serious Film with a Message. Basically, the whole thing can be summed up in an exchange between Alfie and Harry where Alfie says "I never mean to hurt anyone" and Harry replies "I know Alfie. <pause> But you do."
