"Lemming"

Postby parthianbow » Tue July 14th, 2009, 9:15 am

Watched the excellent French film "Lemming" last night. A very subtle, dark voyage into a married couple's relationship as a succession of weird things happen to them. It was very well received by the critics, and we both agreed - 8.5/10

Interest in HF: started in childhood with the classics, which, IMHO are HF even if they were contemporary when written.
Favorite HF book: Prince of Foxes, by Samuel Shellabarger
Preferred HF: Currently prefer 1600 and earlier, but I'll read anything that keeps me turning the page.

Went to a chick flick with my daughter -- the Proposal. Laughed ourselves silly.

Wasn't it great? :D Mind you I'd watch Paul Giamatti and Laura Linney reading the phone book. They were both perfect in this.

Just watched In The Loop - very funny transatlantic political satire.

I watched Love in the Time of Cholera this morning. I really liked it, and thought it was a pretty good adaptation.

Yes, but after having recently watched 1776 I really missed those snappy musical numbers. ;) The funny thing is my husband missed them too. :D

Just saw Harry Potter - not bad if you've read the books, and/or have someone next to you who has (my DH). I will say that this is the first of the movies where I really needed someone filling me in on what was happening. And even David said it was frustrating because much important information was left out of the script, that would have made it easier to understand. But I'd still recommend it. Amazing how those kids have grown into adult actors, also amazing how they've kept so many of the original cast on board all these years!

Miss Austen Regrets was really good. I thought the casting was excellent.
