RTE's brought us for a trip down memory lane this week with Back To Barrytown. The first episode relives the biggest film of the trilogy, and the first, The Commitments. Hearing from Roddy Doyle, Colm Meaney, other cast members, as well as so many more that were involved in the film's conception and production was an eye opener, but the real thrill was in the interviews with the extras of the film, the residents of Sherriff Street, who shared their memories.

During Alan Parker's career, the twice Oscar-nominated director made some excellent films like Mississippi Burning, Midnight Express, Angel Heart, and Bugsy Malone, but one film holds a special place in the hearts of Irish people everywhere.

Since being released in 1991, the story of Jimmy Rabbitte's attempt to form the "World's Hardest Working Band" and bring soul music to the people of Dublin has become a bonafide cult-classic.


Whenever this film is on, you watch it, and some of the quotes from the movie have become a daily part of Ireland's pop-culture vocabulary.

However, can you remember The Commitments well enough to get 15/15 here?

There's only one way to find out.
