5.0 out of 5 stars Great gift, 10 Jan 2014
I bought the book for a present and it was a hit for 2- and 4- year old granddaughters! The book is bigger than it seems and they both called it 'big book'!

5.0 out of 5 stars A unique treat., 4 Mar 2012
Almodovar's latest film,featuring an extreme act of revenge, gains from repeated viewings. Initially it appears to be a mystery thriller which the viewer has to unravel. On subsequent viewings the horror element seems stronger but,at the same time, the film becomes more moving, following the moment when the recipient of the revenge sees a previous newspaper clipping. Is this, perhaps, Almodovar's best film to date?

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple, restrained and moving., 4 Mar 2012
This review is from: Harvest [DVD] (DVD)
This is an unusual film in that it is a feature film with a strong documentary element. The two leading actors,Kai-Michael Muller and Lukas Steltner, both excellent, blend in beautifully with their real-life counterparts and their tender love story is most effective.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's Not a Musical!, 21 Jun 2011
I saw a documentary about this film at the 2011 BFI London Lesbian and Gay Film Festival and, as a result, determined to watch again a film I last saw about 40 years ago. Directed by William Friedkin and very well acted it's a powerful portrait of a group of gay friends and their hang-ups. Using the original stage performers rather than big Hollywood names was definitely the right decision. The DVD extras are particularly valuable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Late Taviani, 21 Jun 2011
This review is from: Fiorile [1993] [DVD] (DVD)
This is a fairly late addition to the output of the great Taviani Brothers. It combines beautiful Italian scenery and strong emotions.The film suggests that the sins of the fathers might well haunt and ultimately destroy their descendants. This may be superstition but the film presents a convincing case.

5.0 out of 5 stars Female Awakening, 21 Jun 2011
This hot-house of a film is based on a book by the author of Spring Awakening which was recently dramatised and staged in London in English and in Wales in Welsh. Jacqueline Bisset is the repressed and repressive headmistress of a girl's school and Enrico Lo Verso is the idealistic inspector who fails in his attempts to discover exactly what's going on there. The film is both intense and downbeat and is certainly worth a look.

5.0 out of 5 stars Carol Reed arrives., 12 Feb 2011
My chief interest in this double DVD package was Carol Reed's 1938 Bank Holiday. This delightful film is now a historical document of another era when the words 'bank holiday' really meant something to the working public. Aided by Margaret Lockwood's sensitive performance it is also a very human story of love lost and won.

5.0 out of 5 stars Magical musical, 12 Feb 2011
What a treat from the great Busby Berkeley.Dick Powell warbles sweetly and the black and white photography glistens. As for the highly regimented dance routines, the fascinating extras on my Region 1 disc provide much food for thought.

5.0 out of 5 stars Colourful black and white, 12 Feb 2011
I bought this double DVD package because it provided a rare opportunity to see Carol Reed's Outcast of the Islands. This ambitious film with its exotic setting and fine performances by Trevor Howard and others is well worth a look. It would have looked even better in colour but Reed seems to have been happy with black and white at that time.
