3.0 out of 5 stars Good story would have been better if not cut poorly, 4 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a good story with a great deal of humour for a delicate subject. It explores the sexual activities of all members of the family after a son is disciplined at school for inappropriate behaviour. The film's depiction of the widowed grandfather's sexual needs was very sensitively handled. As another reviewer has said, despite an 18 certificate, the sex scenes are cut to such a degree that it looks like soft porn from 15 years back. This is is contrast to the honesty of the dialogue. Frankly, this spoiled the overall film.

The story of our Queen
The story of our Queen
by Enid Blyton
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely book with charming illustrations, 19 Oct. 2013

This review is from: The story of our Queen (Hardcover)
This is a lovely book. The writing is very much of its time, but that adds to the charm. Some of the descriptions of King George V and Queen Mary seem a little generous, but it is a childrens book and there was more reverance for the royal family then. Having read many Enid Blyton books as child, it was nice to see this one that I was slightly too young to read at the time. A great purchase after Queen Elizabeth's diamond jubilee year.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating film of gay life in late 70s Berlin, 13 Oct. 2013

This review is from: Taxi Zum Klo [DVD] (DVD)
A great film portraying late 70s Berlin. This was an involving and fascinating story of how a gay teacher lived between the worlds of his school colleagues and the gay culture. It was refreshing to see believable gay men after so many films showing body perfect and overly good looking men. The extras added background to the film and helped me to understand Frank Ripploh.

3.0 out of 5 stars A controversial film short on story, 3 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: I Want Your Love [DVD] (DVD)
I bought this film because of the controversy over the sex content and I was interested in the story of a man leaving a vibrant gay community and returning to his conservative hometown.

The storyline was a bit rambling and some of the dialogue was mumbled and hard to understand. I found it difficult to understand the relationships between the various characters. I was disappointed that the film ended on the main character's trip to the airport as I really wanted to see how he adjusted to his new life in his hometown. That's probably my fault for expecting something that wasn't promised.

The sex was graphic, as expected, but it was not out of place. Indeed, it was portrayed realistically and the actors appeared to be into each other. The eye contact between the actors was particularly good. This differentiated the film from porn where the sex and the actors usually look perfect, but they also look bored and mechanical.

Overall the film seemed to fall between a drama and a porn film. The sex wasn't sufficiently arousing and the storyline needed to be a bit tighter to fully maintain interest. A good effort, but not great.
