An excellent piece - Simon Callow really is incredible! I liked him in other movies, but this is something different. The man Shakespeare comes to life.

Wonderful costumes, nice story lines, good actors - it all makes for a couple of very pleasant hours of watching.


The Creative Habit: Learn It and Use It for Life
The Creative Habit: Learn It and Use It for Life
by Twyla Tharp
Edition: Paperback
Price: 6.29

4.0 out of 5 stars A new look on things, 2 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I found this book very interesting, as it gave me a new look on things. The general outlook of Ms Tharp is very different from mine, but actually her view of creativity and the techniques she describes made me rethink a couple of my presumptions. I will probably not go over to her camp 100%, but she makes many compelling points which will stay with me - comparing her results and mine really made me wonder ....


The Last of the Blonde Bombshells [DVD]

Dvd ~ Judi Dench
Offered by Champion Toys
Price: 33.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Feel-good story and great actors, 15 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It may not be one of those movies which provoke deep thinking or "change your life", but it has a good flow, is believable and the acting is very good (I just love "the Dame").

4.0 out of 5 stars So believable, 17 Jun 2013

Finney and Redgrave are very believable as this couple which made history. Never underestimate the women who sustain men in power!

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, 17 Jun 2013

This review is from: Seven Ages of Britain [DVD] (DVD)
I love Dimbleby's style - I am not competent to judge completeness or accuracy of the historical facts, but this (as the other two series) is information rendered beautifully.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't wait to see series 3!, 17 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Stella - Series 2 [DVD] (DVD)
There was one little thing which was maybe a tad too much, but don't want to spoil the gag, so won't talk about it. But I really do love this show and I do feel very "Stella" ... ;-)

4.0 out of 5 stars Loved it - so very British :-), 9 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A small movie with a great cast, very believable and touching. It makes you think that friendship really can take on shapes you didn't immagine before. Suitable for those who need to "calm down".

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it, 31 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Stella [DVD] (DVD)
I only have one episode left - and dread the end! Is there another series coming? I am not English and do not live (and never have lived) in the UK, so I allow myself to think that this is real life - at least in Wales :-). But apart from that, I really feel with the characters, which are at times hilarious (grandpa speaking and everyone - apart from us poor onlookers - answering as if they understood - apparently they do!?) and always believable. I've never seen anything the actress playing Stella did, but am now contemplating getting the other series she starred in (The Street). If anyone out there knows if and when a sequel to Stella is coming ... pass the information on!

4.0 out of 5 stars Delightful, 9 Mar 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I happened by chance on a Gaskell novel in my local library .... I wanted to get "into" it but couldn't really - a little bit too slow even for my taste. But somehow ... it left something, and when I surfed through Amazon the next time, I searched for the title and found the dvd. And it got me hooked, I went through the whole mini-series in next to no time. The actors are fantastic; the characters so believable! Setting and scenery - if you need to get away from "your time" for a bit, this is the thing. And even for a non-native speaker like me, the language is easy to understand (yes, maybe I'm a little bit old-fashioned). Too bad there won't be any sequels, but I'll try the filmizations of other Gaskell novel.
