Storyline

Jump follows the lives of four twenty-something's whose lives collide one fateful New Year's Eve in a night of fast talk, wild coincidence and intrigue. The unseen yet crucial occurrence of this tale is the strange disappearance of Eddie Kelly, which hangs over the city like a dark cloud. Kelly's 'disappearance' at the hands of crime boss Frank Feeney's men links our four main characters, triggering a sequence of events which ultimately has life changing consequences for each of them. Feeney's daughter Greta is severely depressed and is intent on taking her own life. Pearse is on a mission to get answers about his missing brother Eddie and will stop at nothing until he gets to the truth. Johnny, a small time crook who works for Feeney, and Marie, a frustrated shop assistant, are both looking for a fresh start. Greta and Pearse meet each other in extraordinary circumstances on a bridge overlooking the city. Greta is there to Jump and Pearse has been beaten and dangled off the bridge by...

Trivia

Although set on New Year's Eve in Derry/Londonderry it's obvious, especially to anyone living there, that a lot of the 'festivities' were actually filmed on Halloween. The city boasts one of the biggest Halloween parties in Europe. See more »

One of the best films to come out of Northern Ireland - Maybe??
15 June 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie as part of the Belfast Film Festival and was expecting some tragic love story set in Northern Ireland to the backdrop of the troubles. Well I'm pleased to say this was refreshing take on a story set in Northern Ireland where nothing is mentioned in relation to "The Troubles", which is an important part of the country's history, but exciting to see truly ingenious independent film making from this tiny country.

The story or each character's story all move at a pace that whilst you have time to sympathise the script never dwells too long for you to become too involved, and this where the weakness of the film may be? Possibly a bit more development around the 2 central characters of Nichola Burley(Greta) and Martin McCann(Pearse) might have given more depth/explanation.

There is light relief from from the henchmen of the local gangster which I suppose you could say follow all the usual clichés of one that's dim and the other whom is tormented soul for his past actions.

The story whilst simple does have its twist and turns and how all they eventually collide is down to good writing and the director giving the story room to breathe whilst not let things drag. The other point is that this could have been filmed/made in any city around the world and hopefully should therefore translate to a wider audience.

I do hope this get picked up for distribution, as not to win awards but just for pure entertainment.....
