Alex Fegan's documentary Older Than Ireland pursues a simple but very effective premise - interviewing Irish men and women who, at 100-plus, are older than the state itself.

Fegan may not unearth why the Emerald Isle is home to so many spirited centenarians, but their presence makes for a lovely and inspiring experience in the enjoyable documentary "Older Than Ireland."

It's often said that the Irish, blessed with the gift of gab, can be splendid raconteurs. You'll find generous evidence to that effect here. And a bit of poetry as well.

Seattle Times

A charming, moving and over-too-soon portrait of a country, and of what it means to have a longer than expected life.

Full of brilliantly captured candid moments, Older Than Ireland is a chirpy little charmer.

Hollywood Reporter

Though never managing to surprise us much, this brisk encounter with the living past has moments of charm and the occasional fresh perspective.

Amazing

Anecdotes aplenty and good ones at that.
