Nice soundtrack clip for a great film
29 April 2019 | by Rodrigo_AmaroSee all my reviews

One of the original songs composed for Jim Sheridan master classic "In the Name of the Father", "You Made Me the Thief of Your Heart" has singer Sinéad O'Connor appearing in similar situations as presented in the film - whose major scenes are presented along with her moments. For those who don't know the picture, it tells the story of a petty thief who is wrongly imprisoned along with his father and other mates, all considered to be part of the IRA and their attack on a British pub that killed several people back in 1974. The character played by Daniel Day-Lewis suffers beatings and torture in order to confess for a crime he didn't commit, so the scenario presented with Sinéad is quite similar: she's thrown in jail then goes to confessional rooms, tied and restrained by officers by the difference is that she dubs her song in an angry and maddening matter, filled with passion. And she knows how to act too...as also demonstrated in her supporting role in Neil Jordan's "The Butcher Boy".

Well, the idea isn't all that new in mixing the song performer with the film clips but it works in a nice way. It sells the picture with great precision - though it's not my favorite song from the movie (I prefer the title track sung by Bono, which opens the movie). It's a protest, powerfully made and it works fine in seeing and remembering the movie while we feel powerless like Sinéad trying to understand the injustices of the world, mostly of that story in particular. Watch both film and clip just to form a whole perspective. 8/10
