      Tara Brady Irish Times Noonan and cinematographer Tom Comerford do splendid work making a comparatively short car drive look and feel like an epic road trip, and David Geraghty's score is one of the best film compositions of 2015. Rated: 3/5 Mar 7, 2016 Full Review Vladan Petkovic Cineuropa The whole cast does a good job, and it is, of course, the wildly talented [Lauren Kinsella] steals the show. Aug 24, 2020 Full Review Jennifer Heaton Alternative Lens Gillen's repartee with the young Lauren Kinsella is charming, holding interest through the film's slower moments and the somewhat unsatisfactory conclusion. Rated: 6.5/10 Nov 2, 2018 Full Review Richard Drumm Film Ireland Magazine The attempt at stark realism despite the presence of slightly generic elements further reinforcing the weird non-tone the film seems to be going for. Mar 28, 2018 Full Review Carlos Marañón Cinemanía (Spain) It's not without charm... despite the improbability of the approach... [Full review in Spanish] Rated: 3/5 Feb 14, 2018 Full Review James Marsh South China Morning Post Tom Comerford's muted cinematography finds a rugged beauty in such an unglamorous region of the Irish countryside, while David Geraghty's evocative score is perhaps the film's artistic standout.

      jeff h Aidan Gillan is such a great actor, and this is one of those nice movies, which whilst set in a pretty bleak environment has enough of an interesting backstory to hold the storyline together. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member It's nice watching this kind of movies every once in a while. It's refreshing and peaceful. Though, there's a tendency for these movies to go bland which is the case for this one. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review Audience Member You're Ugly Too [Mark Noonan, 2015, Ireland] An engaging journey of two unusual characters thrown together infused with a great sense of authenticity. 7.5/10 Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/13/23 Full Review Audience Member A beautifully shot film with heartwarming performances. The script is filled with humor and pathos yet much of the story happens off screen. I watched it with some friends and we found ourselves talking for hours afterwards about the hidden back stories of the characters. A gem. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/09/23 Full Review Audience Member cinegeek.de Der gegenseitige Kampf um Sympathie mit Wortwitz und allen Mitteln: You're Ugly Too! Ein Schlagabtausch des Onkels, der gerade aus dem Gefängnis kommt und seiner Nichte, die erst elf ist, ihre Mutter verloren hat und in einem Trailer lebt. Eine Familien-Komödie aus Irland. An sich gibt es aber gar keine Familie. Mark Noonan konzentriert sich in seinem Debüt einfach auf die beiden Hauptfiguren. Die Nichte Stacey ist ziemlich barsch, offensichtlich gewohnt, auf sich gestellt zu sein. Was sie weich erscheinen lässt, räumt sie beiseite - und dann schläft sie einfach ein. Stacey leidet an Narkolepsie. Will, der Onkel, versagt natürlich als Vater und vergisst, sich bei seinem Bewährungshelfer zu melden - schon schaltet sich das Jugendamt ein. You're Ugly Too wirkt zwar frech und haltlos, ist aber konzentriert strukturiert. Neben den beiden Hauptfiguren gibt es da noch den Ort (der wie ein dritter Hauptdarsteller fungiert) und die Vergangenheit, die nie ganz klar wird. Inwiefern war Will am Tod von Staceys Vater beteiligt? Warum musste er ins Gefängnis? Noonan umkreist seine Figuren langsam, offenbart deren Innerstes, ohne aufdringlich zu wirken. Es gibt keine grossen Gesten. Dafür weiss Noonan immer, wohin er mit seinem Film will - und er spendiert ganz am Ende einen witzigen Regie-Einfall... mehr auf cinegeek.de Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Read all reviews
