Editorial Reviews

On the fringes of Dublin two kids, Kylie and Dylan, live in a suburban housing estate devoid of life, colour and the prospect of escape. Kylie lives with five other siblings and her overworked mother. Next door, Dylan lives in the shadow of an alcoholic father and the memory of an elder brother who ran away from home two years earlier. After a violent altercation with his father, Dylan runs away from home and Kylie decides to run away with him. Together they make their way to the magical night time lights of inner city Dublin, to search for Dylan's brother, and in the hope of finding, through him, the possibility of a new life. Lance Daly's vision of Dublin, as seen through the innocent eyes of our protagonists, is a kaleidoscope of magic, wonder and mystery. But as the night wears on, and Dublin takes on a darker character, the two kids have to rely on the kindness of strangers, the advice of Bob Dylan and their trust in each other to survive the night.

The plot was involving, and the script was good.
William Chapman
The mood of the film was directly correlated with the music, and fortunately, the music was perfect to set the mood.
R Zern
Neighbours, they are good friends, quite possibly because their home situations are so dire.

Format: DVD
Some may balk at naming this a Christmas movie because of the subject matter, while others will see the reason for terming this very near perfect film as such. First, it takes place at Christmas, and second it is a story as sweet as the Gift of the Magi as far as different tales on the concept of gift giving. Lance Daly both wrote and directed KISSES and cast two extraordinary young actors in the main roles. His use of black and white to color in filming and his decision to focus the musical score on the works of Bob Dylan are two further bits of evidence that this is a man with a solid career before him.

In an unnamed little town in Ireland adjoining families live in rather squalid psychological conditions. Kylie (Kelly O'Neill) lives with her parents and siblings in a state of constant bickering and chaos: Kylie's uncle has in the past added his own brand of psychological trauma to her life as we hear later in the film. Next door lives Dylan (Shane Curry), a lad Kylie's age who lives with a severely abusive father and submissive mother. It is Christmas Eve and there is not a bit of joy in the air: Kylie is sent off to walk the baby and is verbally abused by schoolmates while Dylan finally is fed up with his father's behavior (Paul Roe) and after a scuffle flees out the window - with Kylie's help. The two youngsters cannot bear their disgusting family situations and off they go, finding a ride with a riverboat dredger captain (David Bendito) who introduces the to the songs of Bob Dylan.

Kisses is an entertaining and unique film. It was interesting to watch the story of two Irish kids that run away from home unravel. Experiencing the journey with them is thoroughly enjoyable and exciting, yet believable and did not seem far-fetched.

I loved the character of Kylie. Her very expressive spirit definitely added to the storyline and made for an interesting character. Dylan's apathetic, yet pensive essence was a nice contrast to Kylie's character. The acting by Kelly O'Neill and Shane Curry was remarkable, and they definitely need to be commended.

The mood of the film was directly correlated with the music, and fortunately, the music was perfect to set the mood. I'm glad that I had a chance to watch it. I especially loved all of the Bob Dylan references.

I highly recommend Kisses!

And I feel like watching it again, right away!!!

From the very first moment until the very end, the two kids,Dylan and Kylie take us on an emotional journey while they're trying to escape their futile lives.
Great acting and a very dynamic picture language create a magical atmosphere.

Definitely not only for Bob Dylan and Dublin fans!

Eine mitreissende Geschichte ueber die Sehnsucht zweier Kinder nach Freiheit und Liebe. Geniale Besetzung und wunderbare Bilder. Absolut sehenswert!

A boy and a girl from broken homes run off into the city in this Irish film. The two encounter both friend and foe while walking the streets for an evening. The longtime friends develop an even closer bond while trying to survive the rough downtown life. The low budget shooting enhances the realism of the film, with the viewer becoming invested in the welfare of the protagonists. This is a strong recommendation for a charming little movie.

Great movie mostly shot around Dublin. The kids swear like (Irish) sailors but there is magic in it all the same. The summary on this listing gives you a pretty fair idea of the plotline. A few moments of movie magic to be found in this little ditty which enjoys paying tribute to Bob Dylan along the way. The title makes sense by the end. Well worth catching. 4.5 stars.

The only way to rate movies is to leave a review. I wasn't prepared to write a review but Kisses is such a worthwhile film I'm rating/reviewing it, and doing so immediately after viewing/renting on-demand. I may edit this review, and flesh it out more after digesting the movie. But the following are my initial impressions.

Kisses subtly, and wholly successfully, evokes subcultures of South Dublin (Tallaght) and Dublin proper. It's no easy task for a filmmaker to draw viewers into his world so gently and firmly. To see and convey things as they are--not smash you upside the head with "brutal reality" nor to balk and sugarcoat. This is a film that deeply respects us, as viewers, as well as the characters--all of the characters, in their plain, understatedly endearing (and, for a handful of characters, rather awful) complexities. The acting is flawless. I didn't want to say goodbye to these characters, and yet the film is the perfect length. The characters will go on with their lives as they did before we met them, and I feel honored to have been able to spend some time with them.

What Kisses is NOT: slick, polished, tidy (in any way), fast-paced, maudlin, cute, patronizing, grotesque, or sentimental. There are no uproarious pratfalls nor clever plot devices--tho it is quietly *very* funny, and quietly *very* smart.

Highly recommended.
