This month’s Monthly Murphy is very special. I have seen this short years ago and haven’t found the right time to share it till today. This is the first and only time I heard the gorgeous Cillian Murphy speaks in Irish…well broken Irish to be precise.
Cillian Murphy has done 9 short films so far, and I have seen 8 of them…couldn’t find his first short yet, but I will one day
I have shared 4 films in this beloved Monthly Murphy of mine, they are The Silent City, Watchmen, The Water, and At The Death’s Door.
Today…I will share Filleann an Feall. This is a 20 minute short film about Seán (Don Wycherley) and Ger (Cillian Murphy), two Dubliners who happened to be a small time criminal. They got a job that required them to speak Irish. Ger wasn’t good in Irish but he tried hard to speak the language. They soon found a kind of treasure that made them forgot their job.
The Irish Film Board Synopsis:
