Wonderful little gem of a movie,

This review is from: Pete's Meteor (DVD)
In complete contrast to a previous reviewer, I loved this movie. It portrays very realistically a family in a poor part of Dublin, battling with all kinds of problems, without ever being maudlin or depressing - in fact I found it quite heartening.
A wonderful performance by the little boy who plays Mickey, a surprisingly sensitive performance by Mike Myers, and good turns by the other actors; great use of color in the cinematography, and well-paced: one's interest never flags. A quirky little movie in a class of its own.
I've seen this movie twice on VHS and intend buying it on DVD now to add to my collection.
