Surreal feeling...

Was picking out a DVD in the Cinema City on John Street in Kilkenny tonight. Man, I must have lurked there for hundreds of hours over the years, since I was a kid picking out VHS goodness. Anyway there was the DVD of Kells on the shelf. I kinda of looked at it and was thinking my usual grumbly picky thoughts of how I still prefer the French cover with Ross Stewarts font for the text and all.

Then I was walking out after renting my DVD and in the middle of unlocking my bike, I just went back in to the shop and picked it up and looked at it and realised how surreal it was that our film was in there amongst all the other "real" films. Then I realised , maybe more than when it was in the cinema , that it IS a "real" film, really out there in the world for better or worse after all these years.
Its a bit surreal yet very ordinary. A small thing in the greater scheme of things I know , but pretty significant for me I guess.

So there you go.

BTW I rented "King of Kong" - excellent.


  1. Congratulations on the film. I can' wait to have that same feeling some day myself.

  2. Hi there
    Is there a making of on the Irish DVD ?
    Are there many languages on it ? (Breton, French, Irish...)
    Thank you for your answer

  3. I lost track of this film. Is there an English-language version? Is that on a DVD? I'd import it, if so. Or is a U.S. distribution still possible?
