Emil and the Detectives

A tale of yesteryear

(Edit) 29/01/2016

I owned a hardback copy of this book as a child.

It was one of my most treasured possessions.

I don't remember losing it or giving it away.

When I saw this dvd listed, I was drawn to it.

The story is just as captivating now, fifty years on.

Carnage

Dull Dull Dull

(Edit) 09/12/2015

I only managed to watch about ten minutes of this film.

Jodie and Kate, what were you thinking?!

To begin with, we didn't get a close-up of the incident that sparked this story.

The following scene left me wondering what these two sets parents were seeking.

The mother of the child who had been assaulted apparently wanted the child with the stick to apologise to her son.

The father of the child with the stick insisted his son wouldn't do that. He offered to pay for dental treatment for the injured boy.

This was not accepted.

And then Kate's character threw up all over her hosts' coffee table and Jodie's character started wiping it up.

I switched off at this point.

Winter Sleep

Much too long

(Edit) 09/12/2015

My first Turkish film.

My, what a long conversation!

There wasn't much going on, other than discussion after discussion.

I was pleasantly surprised to hear people arguing QUIETLY though.

Lovely scenery, quite atmospheric, but why were there only TWO guests at the hotel?

Boudu Saved from Drowning

Old film, old values.

(Edit) 23/09/2015

Old-fashioned farce...

ordinary people caught up in an unplanned situation.

Boudu's craziness reminds me of Jim Carrey.

Not my favourite kind of film.

The Snows of Kilimanjaro

Enjoyed this one.

(Edit) 23/09/2015

Look up the poem How Good Are The Poor, as mentioned in the end credits of this film.

This seems like a really good modern take on it.
