A Kiss is all I have to give: A Christmas Story Dec 20 2010
By Grady Harp - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Some may balk at naming this a Christmas movie because of the subject matter, while others will see the reason for terming this very near perfect film as such. First, it takes place at Christmas, and second it is a story as sweet as the Gift of the Magi as far as different tales on the concept of gift giving. Lance Daly both wrote and directed KISSES and cast two extraordinary young actors in the main roles. His use of black and white to color in filming and his decision to focus the musical score on the works of Bob Dylan are two further bits of evidence that this is a man with a solid career before him.

In an unnamed little town in Ireland adjoining families live in rather squalid psychological conditions. Kylie (Kelly O'Neill) lives with her parents and siblings in a state of constant bickering and chaos: Kylie's uncle has in the past added his own brand of psychological trauma to her life as we hear later in the film. Next door lives Dylan (Shane Curry), a lad Kylie's age who lives with a severely abusive father and submissive mother. It is Christmas Eve and there is not a bit of joy in the air: Kylie is sent off to walk the baby and is verbally abused by schoolmates while Dylan finally is fed up with his father's behavior (Paul Roe) and after a scuffle flees out the window - with Kylie's help. The two youngsters cannot bear their disgusting family situations and off they go, finding a ride with a riverboat dredger captain (David Bendito) who introduces the to the songs of Bob Dylan. The two end up in Dublin where they struggle for food and shelter, encounter some rather gross behaving people, as well as meeting good people like Bob Dylan (Stephen Rea) for a moment and as they look for Dylan's long vanished brother they meet a street girl (Elizabeth Fuh) who when asked how she survives plying her trade tells Dylan that her only gift to people she meets is a kiss - and she gently kisses Dylan on the cheek. After finding that life on the streets of Dublin at night is very rough the two seek help from a policeman who helps them return to their homes. But a bond has been formed between Kylie and Dylan and the story just ends.

Lance Daly is a sensitive director; the portions of the story taking place in the home of the kids are shot in black and white and it is only as Kylie and Dylan discover Bob Dylan's music courtesy of the dredger does the film gradually turn to color. He also is unafraid to show the joys of the two kids as they buy things in Dublin (Kylie's uncle gave her some hush money) and shoe skate around in their new found freedom and happiness, a factor that makes the rest of the story - which is rather dreary and sad - palatable. The two young actors are superb and the music of Bob Dylan floods the screen. This is a small budget film with a big message. And part of that message is about the significance of a simple gift. Grady Harp, December 10

highly recommended June 21 2010
By R Zern - Published on Amazon.com
Kisses is an entertaining and unique film. It was interesting to watch the story of two Irish kids that run away from home unravel. Experiencing the journey with them is thoroughly enjoyable and exciting, yet believable and did not seem far-fetched.

I loved the character of Kylie. Her very expressive spirit definitely added to the storyline and made for an interesting character. Dylan's apathetic, yet pensive essence was a nice contrast to Kylie's character. The acting by Kelly O'Neill and Shane Curry was remarkable, and they definitely need to be commended.

The mood of the film was directly correlated with the music, and fortunately, the music was perfect to set the mood. I'm glad that I had a chance to watch it. I especially loved all of the Bob Dylan references.

I highly recommend Kisses!

A journey you won't forget! June 28 2010
By Critix2010 - Published on Amazon.com
And I feel like watching it again, right away!!!

From the very first moment until the very end, the two kids,Dylan and Kylie take us on an emotional journey while they're trying to escape their futile lives.
Great acting and a very dynamic picture language create a magical atmosphere.

Definitely not only for Bob Dylan and Dublin fans!

Eine mitreissende Geschichte ueber die Sehnsucht zweier Kinder nach Freiheit und Liebe. Geniale Besetzung und wunderbare Bilder. Absolut sehenswert!

For luck April 4 2010
By Green Manalishi - Published on Amazon.com
Great movie mostly shot around Dublin. The kids swear like (Irish) sailors but there is magic in it all the same. The summary on this listing gives you a pretty fair idea of the plotline. A few moments of movie magic to be found in this little ditty which enjoys paying tribute to Bob Dylan along the way. The title makes sense by the end. Well worth catching. 4.5 stars.

A charming and overlooked film Jan. 12 2011
By Robert G. Splaine Jr. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
A boy and a girl from broken homes run off into the city in this Irish film. The two encounter both friend and foe while walking the streets for an evening. The longtime friends develop an even closer bond while trying to survive the rough downtown life. The low budget shooting enhances the realism of the film, with the viewer becoming invested in the welfare of the protagonists. This is a strong recommendation for a charming little movie.
