A entertaining hour 'n a half of fluffiness
10 August 2008 | by john_foyleSee all my reviews

Little White Lies is a entertaining hour 'n a half of fluffiness. I enjoyed every minute of it. Elaine is wickedly real as presenter on children's TV and adventurer in the relationship game. The Dublin locations were beautifully shot. The use of a club, The Button Factory, in Temple Bar as a venue for a TV awards show was especially interesting to me since a cousin of mine co-owns it. I have about 50 cousins ( my Da had seven brothers) so I don't keep up with all of them so it's understandable that he mightn't have mentioned it. It's around the corner from the Irish Film Institute and I have vague memories of seeing some camera's 'n lights around it when I was going to something there late last year.

The use of music is excellent , Fion Regan , Julie Feeney and Jack L all featuring.

The seemingly hostile reaction to it in the Irish media is telling. Either they are all cynics with unreal expectations or I'm way out of touch - probably a bit of both. I haven't engaged with Irish TV/radio/newspapers in years, finding the tedious reappearance of the same old names 'n faces just not worth the effort. This can lead to me 'discovering' facets of Irish life that nearly everyone is bored to tears with. A re-curring joke is the ghastly 'shock jock' shows on radio ( ' you found a ear lobe in your cereal?!?!') , something I'm aware of but avoid.

Elaine's comments in some of the interviews about finding Dublin interesting to work in after years away are thought provoking. Currently the talk here is of 'recession' and 'end of the boom'. It may be that Elaine has mixed feelings about the scene here. On the one hand things are good , much better than they used to be but some are taking it to extremes, excessive consumption etc.. I'd agree with that with the related feeling that what we're seeing now is a leveling of the situation, a necessary correction. I recently saw another Irish film , The Courier (1988), and the Dublin it portrays was graphically accurate in it's depiction of a grim, bleak place. What a difference 20 years has made!

A mostly positive review in the Irish times includes the line ' too many men give a hoot about the dating game.' It's a factor that I'd also agree with.I've given up on the whole relationship 'merry-go-round' so find myself seeing depictions of same at a remove, puzzled, frankly, at what the fuss is about. Which is my way of saying that maybe the more sensitive of you may find the film a bit too silly. Whatever.

I've rambled enough . This film is well worth seeing. Good job, Elaine - more of the same , please!
