Ryan's Daughter

Many terrible movies have been made in and about Ireland. David Lean's 1970 Ryan's Daughter is far from the worst, but I have very mixed feelings about it and some of the performances. Still, when I happened to watch it recently, I loved the shots of Inch strand on the Dingle Penninsula in Kerry and of the countryside in general, the blue light and the sea spray that was in certain moments beautifully captured, like dust motes eddying across the screen.
