Story


Michael owes money to Dublin's meanest gangster, Darren Perrier. When the debt is called in Brenda, Michael's recently "dumped" and suicidal best friend, accidentally shoots dead one of his goons. To make matters worse Michael's estranged father, Jim, arrives just in time to witness the scene. With a bounty on their heads Michael, Jim and Brenda flee to the mountains.

On the run with his eccentric father, who�s convinced he'll die the next time he sleeps, and an increasingly morose Brenda, Michael is about to lose his mind. But as the net tightens and the helter-skelter chase reaches its climax he is forced to forgive his father and confront his true feelings for Brenda. With every hard man in Dublin on their trail it looks like Michael won't make it through the next 24 hours; however, The Grim Reaper and a gang of savage dogs have a funny way of intervening.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..Irish gangsters, at least in the movies, like to talk..”
by Peter Keough [Boston Phoenix]
“..It keeps lumbering to a halt, in an attempt to make us care about the central relationships, but the writing never delivers characters who are anything more than unsympathetic caricatures..”
by Christopher Tookey [Daily Mail]
“..Not designed to blend in (can a film in an eccentric mold achieve true eccentricity?) and yet lacking the extra inch to distinguish it from its better-known kin, Perrier's Bounty is content to merely measure up..”
by Michelle Orange [Movieline]
