Dividing Bar

A solid film with a nice lead performance by Pàdruig Moireasdan/Patrick Morrison. Almost every word of dialogue is in Scottish Gaelic, an endangered regional language which efforts are being made to preserve. This is the first film in the language to have obtained mainstream distribution. The grandfather is played by Aonghas Phàdraig Caimbeul/Angus Peter Campbell, a distinguished poet and novelist who writes mainly in Scottish Gaelic and also in English. This film isn't quite up to Poitín, the first feature film made entirely in Irish, but it's a very worthy effort. Also see Culloden, a brilliant docudrama by Peter Watkins of The War Game that uses quite a lot of Scottish Gaelic.
