Two men arguing off the coast of Ireland, a hundred years ago: “The Banshees of Inisherin” is a great feature film starring Colin Farrell.
The green of the meadows when the fog lifts. The spray on the steep coast. A rainbow over the harbour, the sea shimmering silver in the afternoon light: the beauty of the island of Inisherin, which lies somewhere off Galway on Ireland’s west coast, plays a leading role in this film. She primes him with the comforting feeling of being firmly anchored in the world, determining everything that is to come.
