5.0 out of 5 stars Underrated classic, 10 April 2013
You won't see this film on any best British films of all time list, but this is a well crafted, well acted, and of course being based on an Agatha Christie's who done it, the film is well plotted. The film is quintessentially British and has a Cosy charm. Probably going to appeal to people like me, of a certain age! That said, with our extended winter you could do worse than to spend and hour and twenty minutes experiencing some early sixties nostalgia and charm.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quirky, 10 April 2013
Saw this film when it first came out and it left an indelible impression on me. The film is violent in places, crude but very funny black humour. Michael Gambon is truly superb, as is Helen Mirren. As has been said elsewhere its not going to everyone's taste. But if you want an unusual tail of love and brutality set in a magnificent opulent restaurant this film will delight. Helen Mirren's naked form is also a bonus and adds to the films eroticism. Highly recommended lol.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of vans best, 21 Jan 2013
A great album from van. Not a weak track and the quality of songs are maintained throughout. The tracks vary from the uptempo, Bright side of the road, and Full force gale to the romantic and earthy, Angelu and The healing has begun. Both sides have a distinctive feel and all tracks have plenty of tasteful brass and violin arrangements. The album as a whole is very accessible and you're want to hear repeatedly its that listenable. If you're fairly new to Van Morrison and have only heard greatest hits or Moondance and Astral Weeks, Into the Music would be a great addition and confirmation that it ranks along side his very best work
