A good movie

Honestly, beforehand, I have never heard of this movie before but since it was on the list '1001 movies you must see before you die', I was definitely eager to check it out. First of all, I had to admit it, I'm not really familiar with John Wayne's work and, in my opinion, he basically always portrayed typical tough guys so I was rather surprised to see him being cast in a such a romantic feature... read more

Nostalgia abounds John Ford's glitteringly perfect adaptation of a Maurice Walsh story he acquired the rights for in 1946. "The Quiet Man" is Ford's broadly comic, inherently charming foray into blarney that never once mocks or feels bogus, even if the setting of Inisfree was entirely fictional. In fact, Ford persisted with the studio, even accepting a meagre budget, if they allowed him to shoot i... read more

Sean Thornton has returned from America to reclaim his homestead and escape his past. Sean's eye is caught by Mary Kate Danaher, a beautiful but poor maiden, and younger sister of ill-tempered "Red" Will Danaher. The riotous relationship that forms between Sean and Mary Kate, punctuated by Will's pugnacious attempts to keep them apart, form the main plot, with Sean's past as the dark undercurrent.
Release date: 21 July 1952

"“One of the most beautiful love stories I’ve ever seen…. This film was the passion project of John Ford’s life, and you can feel it in every frame…. The authenticity just leaps off the screen.” - William Friedkin “John Wayne isn’t what I always think of when I think of an actor, but he’s everything I think of when I think of a star…. Maureen O’Hara owns this role; it could only have been played by her.” - Alec Baldwin "

“Nostalgia abounds John Ford's glitteringly perfect adaptation of a Maurice Walsh story he acquired the rights for in 1946. "The Quiet Man" is Ford's broadly comic, inherently charming foray into blarney that never once mocks or feels bogus, even if the setting of Inisfree was entirely fictional. In fact, Ford persisted with the studio, even accepting a meagre budget, if they allowed him to shoot in Ireland, much of which is capitalised on during the climactic punch-up between John Wayne and Victor McLaglen. Inisfree's scenic backgrounds are stunningly realised by Technicolor photography courtesy of Winton Hoch, whose vivid compositions capture the panoramic beauty of the Irish countryside, earning him a much-deserved Oscar. Mixing genre forms such as action, comedy and romance was not new ” read more

"28.06 Peter von Baghin lemppari ei vakuuta täysiä uusintakatseluillakaan. Irlannissa on vihreää, perinteistä ja siellä juodaan viinaa ja nyrkkitapellaan. Ihan jees. Kuitenkin, lopun illalliskattaus, jossa riidat on sovittu, naamaan lyöty ja viinaa otettu, saa tällaiseen sentimentaaliseen machoiluun viehtyneen katsojan liikuttumaan."
