Cockles and Mussels – The uplifting power of the true soul of Dublin
“Cockles and Mussels” is a short movie shot in Dublin in 2016 by the Neapolitan director Bruno Barone.
Little is known about Molly, legend has it that she was native of the fishing village of Howth selling seafood during the day and prostituting at night. She died on June 13, 1699, torn by a fever leaving her ghost still walking lost in the old streets of the city.
This meeting will give Mary a new awareness, a different vision of her life with all its opportunities and a new hope for a better future.
The narrative moves away from the most popular image of Dublin as a land of career opportunities and stays true to the most authentic character of the town down-to-earth, unassuming, welcoming and wise.”
