1.0 out of 5 stars Very boring and sad, 11 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was really disappointed as I expected a lot of this film considering the comment by the Sunday Times but it was really very boring and sad. I could only appreciate the good performance by Gillian Anderson.

5.0 out of 5 stars This author should be known better, 11 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Edwardians (VMC) (Paperback)
Vita Sackville-West is really an author that I would like to recommend. In "the Edwardians" you can read all about how things were in the Eduardian era (1901-1910), hence the title. It is inspired by her childhood in the castle of "Knole", once her fathers. It's funny how it makes you realise how volatile our life's are lived nowadays.

3.0 out of 5 stars You need to be brave !, 11 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The mat video is really the one you need to do the technical part of the exercises. You need to be brave tough as the promised results will come only if you do the video (+/- 1 hour) 4 to 6 times per week. It certainly helps to firm up your upper arms and create lean legs.
The cardio and dance video is not essential according to me as you can do that on your own: jogging, biking, or other cardio exercises. The choreography is hard to follow. Not easy.

4.0 out of 5 stars a great source of inspiration, 10 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is surely a great source of inspiration, especially for young children and teenagers as the colours and shapes are very particular and stimulate the imagination. A great gift that will remain for generations on the shelves. Also combine with the matching colouring book (also available on Amazon).

Dvd ~ Abbie Cornish

4.0 out of 5 stars Such an eye for detail !, 5 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: W.E. [DVD] (DVD)
The scenes, decoration, music, clothing and jewellery in this film are absolutely extraordinary. Such an eye for detail ! The incredible love story of Wallis Simpson and Edward VIII was indeed something else and therefore can not be compared... so I was indeed disappointed to find this "common" contemporary love affair woven into the film. Please: Do not rain on my parade !


Un mito nel mito. Jacqueline a Capri nelle foto di Settimio Garritano
Un mito nel mito. Jacqueline a Capri nelle foto di Settimio Garritano
by Settimio Garritano
Edition: Hardcover
Price: 34.10

4.0 out of 5 stars A good photo review of Jackie's holidays on "Capri" island, 5 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A good photo review of Jackie's holidays on "Capri" island. The square format book is covered in a posh, turquoise linnen that gives it a vacation flair and the photographs, in the typical paperazzi-style of the 6O and 7O's, document the whereabouts of Jackie on the bespoke island. I like ! But then again, I'm very fond of Jackie and of Capri...
