4.0 out of 5 stars Some wonderful tracks there., 24 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
All the best tracks are there, as well as some I like less. With a compilation like this you can always skip a few.

Mime meets clown meets ballet.
Totally delightful. I saw his previous snow show live in the theatre, equally wonderful. Anyone know if that's out on DVD as well? I'd love to see it again.

1.0 out of 5 stars Appalling violence, 10 May 2013
This review is from: Good Cop [DVD] (DVD)
I don't know how people can even watch so much violence. Halfway through the second episode I couldn't stomach any more and decided life was too short to follow such black dysfunctionalism.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great entertainment, 15 Mar 2013
This review is from: Foul Play ( Killing Lydia ) (DVD)
Hugely entertaining comedy, good story, well acted. No deep and meaningfuls or hidden messages. No significant blood and guts, just an umbrella! Thoroughly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Concert in Athens, 18 Feb 2013

This review is from: Concert in Athens (Audio CD)
It is lovely, but duplicates other CDs I have. Also I missed the Greek instruments. Nothing by Karaindrou could be less than lovely though.

2.0 out of 5 stars Silence...and lacklustre, 18 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Compared to other fado CDs I have, this lacked life, energy and emotion. I found it depressing. I bought it because I like fado and this had excellent reviews.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mind blowingly beautiful, 12 Feb 2013
Both visually and musically I found this disc mesmerising. Takes me to another planet. I had the cd already, also 5 star, but the DVD adds immeasurably to my enjoyment. What a wonderful composer of Greek music, and the soloists are brilliant as well. 7 out of 5 stars describe my experience better.

2.0 out of 5 stars Dino Saluzzi and Anja Lechner fan disappointed, 15 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Too much talk and too little music. I had fondly hoped that it was a concert DVD rather than a documentary (of sorts).

4.0 out of 5 stars Time warp to marital power structures in the late forties, 30 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This series gave an infuriating insight into gender inequalities of the time (I hope). These women whose brilliance helped win world war 2 with their contribution to military intelligence were expected to pull their heads in and pander to their mediocre husbands thereafter, any contributions other than to housekeeping and child rearing and pandering to husbands had to be surreptitious so as not to damage men's fragile ego. The infuriating bit was the acceptance by the women.
It was very well acted and produced, the bleak frumpiness of respectable middle class women and their dreary lives was somewhat overwhelming.
Hope they make another series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Harsh comedy with depth and heart, 26 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A brilliant comedy with wonderful settings of historical Bruges, makes you want to go there. Must have done for the tourist industry in Bruges what Morse did for Oxford, but with a much more memorable and cleverly scripted plot. Everything is over the top, the humour, the violence, the pathos, the warmth, and the surprises. This was the 3rd copy I bought, one as a gift, one to keep which was lent to various people and eventually disappeared off the horizon and recently got the bluray and enjoyed it again.
