Supreb acting, a wonderful 'Whodunnit?". The series is in 8 45 minute episodes , but I watched the entire series in two evenings.
Highly recommened.

3.0 out of 5 stars Rather Biased, 12 Jun 2013

Smith's book is a very well researched description of the conflict in Chechnya. The first section deals with the history of this multi-ethnic region in great detail, and is a fascinating read. The second half deals specifically with the first war in the mid-nineties. Smith obviously spent many months travelling with the Chechen fighters-and that's where the book has it's failings. The more I read, the more his style of reporting sounded familiar. It is the type of "Sunday Times glorify the underdog type" reporting. He fails to appreciate that much of the civilian suffering is caused by the mode of battle that the Chechens and other terror groups such as Hamas use. Choosing to fight from villages, and using the innocent civilian population as human shields.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing film, 3 Jan 2013

This review is from: A Separation [DVD] (DVD)
A superbly made film, made in an almost documentary style. There is no background music. The acting is faultless by the entire cast, and being an Iranian speaker, I appreciate the nuances of the acting which reading subtitles does not give. It's often difficult to believe they were acting. My only little gripe was the casting of the directors daughter as an eleven year old. She is a superb actress but she looked as if she is sixteen or seventeen. I highly recommend the film.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great, but...., 15 Feb 2012

This review is from: Red Riding Trilogy [DVD] (DVD)
This is a gripping and well acted series. My only gripe was that there were no subtitles available. Even though I was born and lived in England for 30 years, I often missed parts of the dialogue because I simply couldn't catch what was said in the Yorkshire accent. Subtitles would help!
