I Went Down (1997)

This Irish-British road movie follows the misadventures of some Irish ex-cons. When Dublin hood Tom French (Tony Doyle) comes down hard on slow-witted Anto (David Wilmot), Git (Peter McDonald) intervenes and then is assigned a mission. He is ordered to travel to Cork to bring back French’s friend Frank Grogan (Peter Caffrey) and the money Frank in holding. Along for the ride is French’s associate Bunny (Brendan Gleeson). The two rescue Grogan from gunmen, but Grogan claims to know nothing about any money, only about his 18-month affair with French’s wife. Thus, uncertainty looms on the horizon as the three drive back to Dublin. Shown at the 1997 Edinburgh Film Festival.

Nice film about nothing much at all – doubt I’ll rem the plot 10 yrs out but nice performances of Gleeson and Peter McDonald. Funny and endearing diversion.
