A lovely feelgood movie
A beautiful and worthy film, set in a small and fairly isolated village in Ireland, yet, like the village and its inhabitants, the film is also, sadly, rather forgettable. The people living in this tiny community, whilst optimistic, charismatic and full of life, also realize the dead-end nature of their situation. The men long to travel and meet beautiful women in exotic places. They put an ad in an American publication hoping to attract women to join them for a local dance, but the women fare rather better by attracting the local Spanish fishermen.
The movie could easily have degenerated into Hollywood-style unbelievability but it resists the temptation. The characters, their lives, and how they develop are convincing and moving. The title refers to missing what is important (in love and life) when it is under your nose.
A lovely feelgood movie.
Jon Monsarrat review: slow-paced but amusing
I’m an action movie buff, so mostly I like films that blow up. I like comedies too, but I expect a fast pace and not too much arty melodrama. “The Closer You Get” (called “American Women” in the USA) is an amusing and somewhat slow-paced Irish comedy that I found an acceptable crossover film to rent with my SO, who doesn’t like action films. The plot wraps up satisfyingly.
Like many Irish films I’ve seen, it’s charming and has plenty of small town culture. I would, however, recommend “The Englishman Who Went Up a Hill But Came Down a Mountain” (which is really Welsch), or “The Full Monty” first, which are similar but better.
I’ll give “The Closer You Get” a ho-hum but not exactly bad 5 out of 10.
