Where Eskimos Live [2002] [DVD]
Where Eskimos Live [2002] [DVD]
Dvd ~ Bob Hoskins
Offered by A ENTERTAINMENT
Price: £3.40

3.0 out of 5 stars Worth it for the two leads., 6 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Poorly made, quite appalling but...the performances of the two leads are outstanding: Some scenes between Bob Hoskins and the Polish boy are off the scale; well worth buying for that alone, but oh dear, how poorly is this film made. A simple example would be how the boy's face goes from dirty to clean and back again during the same car journey. And the acting of the other characters is woeful. But..get it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Better on second viewing, 9 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bumblef**k, USA [DVD] (DVD)
Firstly, this DVD has a 15 certificate. There is no porn in it. It's a shame the title suggests otherwise because it is perhaps a film that should be shown in American high schools, though that in unlikely to say the very least: I could certainly see the film being shown to fifteen year olds in France.
The plot is simple enough. What makes the movie sre the performances of the two female leads, and the interviews which I must surmise are genuine. The film is a plea for empathy and tolerance, and it works.

4.0 out of 5 stars A TV drama better than most movies, 18 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Close To Leo [DVD] (DVD)
Hard to believe this was a TV drama; one would never guess from the production and performances which are exceptional. There are two scenes which are superflous (mentioned by others)but apart from that there is nothing to dislike about the movie. Very pleased I bought it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Masterpiece, 17 Dec. 2012

This review is from: The Kid With A Bike [DVD] (DVD)
Brilliant show-don't-tell example of film making of the highest order. Its simplicity is its brilliance. It's all there; you only need to look, think. Films like this only come along every ten years or so.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not just for piano, 7 July 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I don't consider myself anything like an accomplished pianist, but I was able to sight read about 10% of this collection of sheet music. That's a dozen or so songs and worth the price alone. What I didn't expect was how many other songs I was able to adapt to play on my keyboard. Every song I wanted to play had the chords printed above or below the staff; I'm sure even the most complete dufus would find it hard not to enjoy playing such showtunes. I commend it to the house!

4.0 out of 5 stars A toy but what fun!, 29 April 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Had the Yamaha psr-e313 a couple of months now. I cannot consider this a true musical instrument but I do enjoy playing with it. It's best suited to a box room as the speakers aren't that powerful: it doesn't take up a lot of space. A hugely enjoyable toy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent product, 28 Mar. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Given a choice between this and an acoustic piano the acoustic would win, but at this price the NP 30 is a bargain; it's something like a twentieth of the cost and doesn't need tuning, takes up less space and can easilly be located anywhere in the home. The negatives: it's not a piece of furniture, even with the best stand it has a tendancy to wobble, the height with my stand (Yamaha LC-2)is too high for my existing piano stool.Finally, my NP30 came with an adaptor; I should advise not buying one (and the KPA6, not KPA3 is suggested according to Yamaha) until after delivery.
