The film festival in Venice is in full swing and, like every year, this year is also in the spirit of the premieres of the expected films and many candidates for prestigious awards. The first viewers could watch the drama here It’s okay, dear by Olivia Wilde, Timothée Chalamet in alluring Bones and All from the director of Give Me Your Name and Brendan Fraser here for his allegedly breathtaking performance in the novel The Whale by Darren Aronofsky enjoyed a standing ovation. Among the titles that are garnering the most praise in Venice, however, there will apparently be a different piece – a novelty from the director of Pecek In Bruges and Three Billboards just outside Ebbing, Martin McDonagh. And his next picture The Banshees of Inisherinin which he once again joined forces with Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson, will obviously be among the films of the year!

This is at least indicated by the excellent rating on Rotten Tomatoes, where 100% positive reviews are currently shining with a very strong rating of 8.4. According to critics, this is further evidence of McDonagh’s masterful work with a screenplay and brilliant dialogues, in which he knows how to alternate tones from a great black comedy to a gritty and violent film. Although the viewer will laugh a lot, at the same time the story of two former friends will touch his heart and make him feel sad. In addition, the film skilfully works with themes of anger or the absurdity of human behavior. And he does it again with a brilliant directing style, in which he does not deny his theatrical roots or his feeling for Irish folklore.

And last but not least, he has the flawless pair of Farrell/Gleeson at hand. Their mutual chemistry is said to be incredible again, they both play to their maximum and are able to excellently sell each message and McDonagh’s superbly written sentence. In short, the popular director has done it again, and his fans are likely to be very excited. And quite possibly he also made a film, about which we will hear a lot more in the season of prestigious awards.
