A Very fine film

This is a modern tragedy that reminded me of Buchner's ' Wozzeck ' and Thomas Mann's ' Death in Venice '. A 46 year old man is at the end of his tether, and all around him are strangers in his family who do not know him, and strangers outside of him who deprive him of the only job he has ever had. He loves only an inaccessible youth and like Aschenbach in ' Death in Venice ' he sees him as the embodiment of beauty, when the youth is all too pathetically human. The film is anything but rough in its direction, and the acting is superb. It is not an easy film to watch, but then the finest works of art are ( and should be ) challenging and difficult. The music underlines this and rarely has music been so well used. There is a scene in mud fields that moved me a lot and the music in that scene was excellent and added to the ' Wozzeck ' feel I had throughout the film. It had echoes of Alban Berg who put the Buchner play to music and made it one of the greatest and hardest Opera's to watch and bear. But like all works that work at the highest level ' Rialto ' left me with a gift, and that is the gift of further understanding mankind, and the complexities of being human, plus the extremities of abuse that are inflicted constantly on us as human beings. Rialto was that part of Venice where Aschenbach stayed in ' Death in Venice '. A painful but necessary gem that validates the art of film supremely.

An interesting observation on identity

Tom Vaughan-Lawlor ("Colm") is a forty something dock manager from the port of Dublin who has a scary encounter with a young man in the toilet of shopping centre and ends up being robbed. Next day the young man "Jay" (Tom Glynn-Carney") turns up in his office to extort even more from him. "Colm" has a drink problem, has recently lost his father, is facing redundancy and is trapped in a loveless (certainly sexless) marriage and has a diffident, recalcitrant son. All this contrives to drive him towards an emotionally addictive relationship with his erstwhile mugger. The whole thing is a bit rough around the edges, but the two leads perform strongly and we get a slight inkling as to what drove both men to where they are now. Don't expect a conclusion; there isn't one - and it does wallow a little in confused self-pity as only us Celts can - but it is worth a watch.
