5.0 out of 5 stars Intriguing Film, 6 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sacred Heart [DVD] (DVD)
A hard nosed property developer suddenly discovers, through a child who is a thief and a liar, a different aspect of her personality, but what is the ultimate conclusion? Does she become saint like, as her Mother thought, or just eccentric? As always beautifully directed and filmed.

5.0 out of 5 stars brilliant film, 28 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is cinema at its best - tension taken right to the wire, and not just one storyline, but three or four interwoven, with the brooding hot Italian summer as the backdrop. Tremendous performances all round.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Photos which show a private life, 10 Mar. 2013
This review is from: Britten in Pictures (Paperback)
A good book with a huge range of photographs showing both public and private times from Britten's life. An eclectic mix including a skinny dipping one! Recommended read.

This review is from: Chef's Special [DVD] [2008] (DVD)
thought it would be like Almodovar, but this is a world away - very one dimensional, no depth, and a film trying to pull together too many issues.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Good Film, 17 Feb. 2013

This review is from: The Son [DVD] (DVD)
A very good film about a man who teaches in a rehabilitation centre for released youth crime convicts - who realises that he knows the history of one new lad who joins. It deals with the issues of revenge and coming to terms with issues.

5.0 out of 5 stars Haunting Tale, 11 Jan. 2013
This review is from: Beau Travail [DVD] (DVD)
Wonderful film - based on Melville's Billy Budd as a story. Set in the desert with the French Foreign Legion - the story is real Billy Budd - commanding officer and junior and denial. Beautiful scenery, and great characterisation. Great music as well - both Britten excerpts and also great dance music in the nightclubs. It's my wife's favourite film.

A very good recording of the Four Seasons by one of today's most electric violin players, who always gives an interesting performance. Great CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars very good play on Romeo and Juliet, 24 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Private Romeo [DVD] (DVD)
A fascinating and very well acted 'play' on the play Romeo and Juliet. It is a bit like Beau Travail, which is based on Billy Budd.

It is reviewed by others as a gay film, but it isn't really - this is acting - btw when performed at the time it was written Shakespeare would have used an all male cast, so this is not so different. A really engrossing film - a reasonably good knowledge of Romeo and Juliet will help.

All the actors are theatre actors and so the acting of the play is very good. Extras including director commentary are excellent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Film, 23 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Facing Window [DVD] (DVD)
A very good film, beautifuly acted, and a wonderful story which slowly unwinds throughout the film. There's also a very good theme of questioning whether we really want what we think we want and that we should all be true to what we want to do. No spoilers there, but all those themes are present!
