  1. JJJ's rating of the film The Quiet Man

    A gorgeous film, but I just can't stand John Wayne's character. The boxing flashback felt like a Powell & Pressburger number.

  2. FISCHER's rating of the film The Quiet Man

    D'un plaisir constant ! www.cinefiches.com

  6. Lynch/Fellini's rating of the film The Quiet Man

    John Ford's use of color is absolutely to die for in this movie!

  7. 'king Harold's rating of the film The Quiet Man

    Her voice melts me heart so it does, love Ireland...

  8. raggiodisole's rating of the film The Quiet Man

    Wonderfully warm and beautifully shot. Ignore the dodgy political and sexual politics, dive in and relax

  9. Through A Glass, Darkly's rating of the film The Quiet Man

    Well made. Has its lengths, but that's not unusual given when it was made. Lovely scenery. Nice fist fight finale. More keen to visit Ireland now.

  11. Superfrog's rating of the film The Quiet Man

    Not the kind of film I would normally fall for, but really good in its own right. Obviously the stunning colours and the careful phonographic construction of the scenes helps. But the the script, on the basis of not so strong story, just keeps on delivering without pushing any of the devices too far.

  12. tintinmugshot's rating of the film The Quiet Man

    Not one of the best Ford's, but great. It starts as a serious movie but suddenly - with the head full of pints - becomes a comedy, a Republic Pictures flick.

  13. Bastien G.'s rating of the film The Quiet Man

    great movie, loved the fight scene, the scenery, these movies are never aging

  14. fauna's rating of the film The Quiet Man

    A nice comedy, with some real laugh out loud moments.

  15. Christopher W's rating of the film The Quiet Man

    A bit of a fairy-tale.Eire was dirt poor at the time this film was made with large levels of illiteracy in the rural areas and Eamonn de Valera's Ireland was a rather down-trodden theocracy. .Victor McClaglen rather stole the show from John Wayne.My views only.

  16. DJSE's rating of the film The Quiet Man

    Hard not to enjoy, it has a comic book quality, sure, and there's a lot of Irish stereotyping going on, but the pace of the story, the acting, the dialogue and it's sheer cheerfulness save it. A dreamland, for just over 2 hours.

  17. James Mackin's rating of the film The Quiet Man

    Will John Wayne step in the ring for love, the way they do it in good ol' Oireland?

  18. Scienceofphantoms's rating of the film The Quiet Man

    The finest technicolor images, and Ford's ensemble literally snowballs into a communal utopia that is sadly supplemented of only the vaguest gestures outside of the male homosocial. An incomplete exchange. Wayne and O'Hara put enough into their full-bodied performances to sublimate that (this work is also naturally done by Ford's endlessly creative blocking, shooting). But then again, she's dragged through the mud.

  19. Tja's rating of the film The Quiet Man

    Hollywood's seductive portrayal of imaginary village life in the Emerald Isle, circa forever. John Wayne returns to the family turf to claim his birthright and the only attractive girl for his spouse. Although mainly the quiet man, occasionally JW reverts to 'yee ha' wild west mode, particularly when on horseback. Not a privation or potato famine in sight, b' gorrah.

  20. tealeaves's rating of the film The Quiet Man

    An old favourite and a great laugh. Victor McLaglen is just phenomenal and you can't take your eyes off Maureen O'Hara or the Western Irish landscape as captured here.

  21. Mar ~'s rating of the film The Quiet Man

    well,,, I felt like watching a Disney movie

  22. themroc's rating of the film The Quiet Man

    Many Irish people see it as Paddywhackery. I don't. It's Ford's hymn to a land he idealised without ever knowing and a people he tried to get to know. As a celebration of community, it's hard to beat. And when it comes to a good old fashioned passionate love story where the sex is suggested rather than shown, a shower of rain was never so well used.

  23. remainder's rating of the film The Quiet Man

    The first half hour of film, with the introduction of Maureen O'Hara's Character and the first arrival to the newly bought house at night, is basically unbelievable. Ford's work on color is, here, as astonishing as in Seven Women, his last picture. Personally, I think this one (towards the other) lacks breath, and goes quietly fading while approaching the end. But that first half is pure bucolic poetry

  24. SpacePirate's rating of the film The Quiet Man

    Personally, I feel this is Ford and Waynes best film. O'Hara was a joy in this as well.
