Astonishing music, lads, I'm telling ya. I laughed my arse off and really enjoyed this trip into Dublin's not-so-old days! Deep into the core of Ireland. Where the real blacks of Europe stand. (Y)

"The Irish are the blacks of Europe, and the Dubliners are the blacks of Ireland, and the Northside Dubliners are the blacks of Dublin... so say it once, say it loud, I'm black and I'm proud... read more

To be honest, it has been ages since I saw this flick and I should probably re-watch it at some point. Basically, a while back, I used to play the saxophone and I followed some lessons for 5-6 years. At some point, my sax teacher asked me if I would be interested to play in a band and, of course, I thought it sounded pretty neat.

North Dublin wheeler-dealer Jimmy Rabbitte, dreaming of music stardom, decides to form a soul band from the local community. But despite their talent, The Commitments' internal squabbling proves a major obstacle on the road to success.

30 From 91: My Favorite Films From 1991 (30 movies items)

"With it's long standing traditions of it's own brand of folk songwriters and music, Ireland isn't exactly the place to find any real solid R&B groups. So when a local Dubliner decides to form a band in the stylings of Otis Redding and Aretha Franklin, he expects to have his job cut out for him. Only to find out that the real battle of starting a band together is not a lack of soul, talent or skin color, but a lack of "commitment" due to a big headed clash of egos that rivals any episode of Behin"

Eventually, it turned out to be a blues-band which was pretty much like the band in this movie with some kids coming from the projects of my city. I mean, we even had ‘Mustang Sally’ in our set list! So, obviously, everyone in my band just loved this movie for some obvious reasons but, to be honest, I always had some rather mixed feelings about the damned thing. I mean, sure, it was quite entertaining, the characters were convincing and believable and some of ” read more
