5.0 out of 5 stars A love story, 27 Jan. 2015
This review is from: Room In Rome [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
If you come to this film expecting a titillating piece of soft porn then you will be disappointed. Yes, it is a deeply erotic film with copious amounts of consensual lesbian sex but at its heart it is a story of two people from the opposite ends of Europe who meet by chance in a foreign city and over the course of one night fall first quickly in lust with each other and then slowly and cautiously in love with each other. The joy of the film is not the sex, which is always presented in a tasteful and completely non-exploitative fashion, but in the way the couple gradually open up, moving from evasive half-truths to to an open honesty that you can see gradually filling a void that exists in both of their lives. I love Before Sunrise and its sequels Before Sunset and Before Midnight and this film obviously owes a debt to those films. This film left me with the same feeling at the end, a hope that if they find true happiness, it will be with each other. The lovely ending is enigmatic about this but serves to leave that hope intact.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a voice!, 9 May 2011
This review is from: Daughter of the Spring (Audio CD)
I saw Mor Karbasi sing with the early music group Joglaresa a couple of years ago and it was evident that hers was a voice that had the beauty to charm a butterfly but also the power to sink a battleship. This new CD shows off that voice every bit as well as her debut album 'The Beauty and The Sea', in fact I think it goes further. In short, this is a voice to die for.

Like the first album, this is a mixture of contemporary and traditional songs, many of the contemporary ones with lyrics by Mor's mother Shoshana. All the material, whatever its source, is however imbued with the essence of her Sephardic heritage. The arrangements fit the material perfectly, sometimes fiercely traditional, at other times laced with fiery electric guitar. Occaionally they veer close to easy listening but that danger soon recedes!

It's the voice that matters though - from the first the last moment it burrows its way deep into your soul. I dare anyone not to be moved to tears by much of this music.

Buy this CD!

5.0 out of 5 stars Feel good music par excellence, 22 Sept. 2010
This review is from: Anchor (Audio CD)
I first came across this artist on a Kaskade album so was expecting something more electronic. But no, it's largely acoustic (there are even banjos hidden in there somewhere!), but totally, wonderfully disarming. The mostly upbeat songs are almost without exception optimistic celebrations of love and life that leave you with a warm feeling.

Looking up more details on Mindy Gledhill I found that her background is in Christian music, and specifically music connected with the Mormon church, but if that isn't your thing don't let that fact put you off. Let's hope somebody picks it up for an official UK release sometime.
