This review is from: Lilting [DVD] (DVD)
A very sweet film with a beautiful performance from Ben Wishaw and charming ones from the rest of the cast. In its depiction of the breakdown of barriers and prejudices between two very different people (culture, age, sexuality, beliefs) it is very human and optimistic in a wider sense. Peter Bowles has a delightful cameo role (playing against type). If you like a gentle charming story of real people, this is for you. If you want fireworks and special effects, perhaps not.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ozpetek is the greatest unsung master of contemporary cinema, 13 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ozpetek is the greatest unsung master of contemporary cinema... more subtle than Almodovar, deeper than Woody Allen, more believable than Wes Anderson, just brilliant, film after film. This is one of his best. He manages to make a depressing subject (cancer) uplifting, joyous even, and a beautiful love story unfolds, with wonderful humour, rich characterisations, unexpected twists all filmed in gorgeous scenery, in and around the city of Lecce. I can't recommend this hightly enough.

A wonderful performance from Tom Hardy. Makes the mundane frustrations and tensions of a man at the end of a phone become real to the audience and easy to identify with. A very clever film.

4.0 out of 5 stars But then I'm a Fan., 13 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although it is not perfect and has an air of gloom about it, as far as I am concerned Paul Simon can do no wrong, so I cherish this film and have waited for ages to own a copy. Don't expect a masterpiece, but a gentle sub-Woody Allen human drama with some moments of humour and a performance by Simon that is more believable and subtle than one might expect from a singer-songwriter with little acting experience.

Ozpetek is one of the greatest unsung directors of the current cinema. This is a dark and gripping film, quite different from any of his other lighter masterpieces. Highly recommended.

Silent comedy worthy of Chaplin and Keaton. This film deserves a wide audience for its quirky and out-loud funny set pieces.

This review is from: Love (Audio CD)
George Martin has revamped the great music into a brilliant new format, you find yourself trying to remember the flashes of sound which weave through the main songs, and can't imagine anyone not thinking the Beatles were extraordinary.

Gleason is brilliant and the character is a joy. Somehow feels too short...

4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliantly acted and directed, 28 July 2014
Brilliantly acted and directed, the period atmosphere is portrayed astonishing well, but I begin to get a bit worn out by the subject matter. How long did prohibition go on for? Seems like two decades...
