Oooooh - this movie, Iris, is one of my very, very favourites. Such a beautiful, touching song. I have a few tears, my dear Willow. Thank you.
How very beautiful. Thank you, Willow.
I have not seen this movie yet but will check it out. Touching.
Thank you Willow
I haven't seen Iris, but now it's on the radar.Seems to adhere to the true bohemian tenet: Truth, Beauty,Freedom and Love.
I am always surprised at how well some actors and actresses sing. This was really nice. Will have to check out this movie.Thank you.
Gosh, I could go for some mac and cheese just about now.......Missing all blogging chums in the USlots of love
This is a great movie! Judi Dench plays a fantastic role (as allways!).
I cried through this film when my wife and I saw it a few yars ago and right now I have had to rub my eyes more than once whilst watching this clip. And what a beautiful poem to accompany the video. Many thanks, willow, for such a thoughtful post.Greetings from London.
Yes, beautiful movie, beautiful rendition, great poem.
It was such a lovely film - I wept buckets of course. Thanks for the clip.
Irish blessings and songs, always so rich and often poignant. Hope is a beautiful thing.
Not familiar with the film, but the song is lovely; those old British Isles songs are often at their best sung a capella I think.
lovely. sucha sad movie too.
So beautiful - thanks for sharing:)
Thank you - that just tugged my Irish heart strings - and Kate looks like a young page (have to get the movie and will be interested to see the year)
Impossible that it could be performed better.
Hi Willow, thanks for this post, this song is beautiful and soothing.I've just seen your previous post about the Triplets, that's quite a coincidence because I've blogged about this film last week as well. I absolutely love it, it's so quirky and so French!Polly x
i wonder if the reverse is true.. a good singer = a good actress? lol just a thought! gotta catch up with the rest of your posts for the past few days!blessings for a great week!Tracie
lovely, didn't know that Kate ould sing so well.. I tried to watch the movie, but found I couldn't. Will certainly try again, thanks!
I will be receiving the film "Iris" tomorrow from Netflix.What a nice coincidense. Lovely song..thank you..
I'm so enjoying these Irish moments...reminds me of my own pint of Irish within and my mother's wink and smile.
I had no idea she could sing so well.
Thank you for the song. I have not seen the movie, but I will add it to my list.You have been tagged.
i love this song, and the movie has long been on my list of films to see! I'm off to the p.o and library - maybe the library has a copy in! if one waits long enough, there is no wait! winslet is a brilliant actor! i was so happy she won for her role in the reader, she was my pick!i actually can't believe i haven't seen this film, another of favorite actors is also in it - that would be dame judi.... thanks for the song and the reminder!
This was a nice video. She can sing much better than I do.
A lovely and tender song. I am amazed at the sweet clarity of Kate's voice. Not only can she act, the woman can definitely sing!
oh so loved this post, so did the hubby who leaned over to catch a listen! Must see the film! Enjoy your Monday.Salut du Midi
I like her a lot--she's such a good actress. I wouldn't mind seeing Iris again, seeing this again--it's a very good movie. Poignant.
It's a wonderful film, isn't it? I was amazed at how well selected the cast was - particularly the Hugh Bonneville/Jim Broadbent transition.It's a beautiful song. The Irish certainly know how to write music.Willow, have you seen "Once"?Kat
Beautiful,I love Kate (and Judy!). I read the book,then watched the movie,then read the book again.Thank you!
How simply lovely!
I was always fascinated and challenged by the real Iris Murdoch and her views on pholisophy and literature. I have seen this movie many times and Winslet and Dench do a superb role at embodying Murdoch
Hello Willow,Beautiful words and nicely sung by Kate. Your Irish interludes are most enjoyable.
Oh, beautiful song!Such a poignant film (and book). Another fine Kate moment . . . she did deserve an Oscar!
I had forgotten this was in the movie...and "Iris" is another of my favorite movies...esp with the theme of aging and memory and dementia...thank-you for this lovely song...Loved the Triplets of Belleville too...you and I have similar taste in movies it seems...I still have the Diving Bell on my shelf....maybe this weekend...
