Editorial Reviews

Kylie lives with five siblings and an overworked mother. Next door, Dylan is growing up with an abusive father and the memory of his runaway brother. After a violent altercation with his father, Dylan and Kylie flee. Together they make their way to the magical lights of downtown Dublin to search for Dylan's brother and hope for a new life. Dublin, as shown through the innocent eyes of our young protagonists, is a kaleidoscope of magic, wonder, and mystery. But as the night wears on, the city takes on a darker character, and the two must rely on the kindness of strangers and sagely wisdom of Bob Dylan to persevere. Featuring incredible breakthrough performances by Shane Curry and Kelly O'Neill, KISSES is a tale of two children who test the limits of what life can become, and learn what they can do for each other.

By Grady Harp HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on December 20, 2010
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 bittersweet story of young love and affection in the setting abuse and poverty both of spiritual and literal kind. The beautiful moody cinematography displays the gritty underbelly of Irish society and urban Dublin debunking the shamrock cheerful Irish stereotype many of us in the Irish diaspora were brought up to believe. Sad yes but still a beautifully told story

I completely agree with other reviewers who have praised this remarkable film, especially the outstanding performances by its two young stars. But I do want to add a warning - the sound quality is poor, at least on my copy. Quite a lot of the dialog is almost unintelligible (although the sense is usually clear from the context). I tried switching on the subtitles, but these were only provided for the especially obscure bits (such as right at the beginning). I am a native English speaker, have Irish relatives and have worked with Irishmen, so was disconcerted by having to struggle to catch what was being said. I would have been able to enjoy the movie more without this distraction.

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.

I enjoyed this film too, but it too, took off slow but progressed really well, as we look at the story of a first kiss. Two kids embark on a rebellious journey. To escape ongoing abuse by both their parents. This is a love story about the beginning of love, and choice. Through their journey, they become closer, as they realize, they have only eachother. This was a cute story told through the eyes of 2 gifted actors, Shane Fury, and Kelly. O,NEIL.
