(ca) wrote: Based on a true story. Also part of my film festival harvest some time ago. A classy BBC period drama, which was shown under the Pink Zone-gategory of gay and lesbian films, resulting in very limited audience base. Sadly so. The film was very good description of the time, the difficulties of women in the 19th century England, their struggle and will to be independent and, god forbid, to love whom ever they please, even another woman!! Beautifully describing the restrictions of the society and the smallness of people's thinking on various subjects. Not so unlike "modern, enlightened" times.

(ca) wrote: In what is probably one of Dolph Lundgren's better films (that's not saying much sadly) he plays a political assassin who must work with another agent who may or may not be trying to kill him. She is played by Gina Bellman whom you may recognize from her role on the TNT show "Leverage". Anyway this is just your standard action straight to DVD film and while its attempt for a moral anchor are lost in the moments of violence the film does have a certain macho charm to it. It's well directed by Russell Mulcahy (Highlander) with one action scene in particular that makes the entire movie worth watching. Its far from being a good film, but I wouldn't call it a bad one either. I appreciated the fact that Dolph isn't made out to be a Superman type character. He takes damage, gets beat up, has his feelings hurt and on several occasions realizes he can't be successful on his own. Not that he tries to be a lone wolf either. There is one major plot hole that really bugged me, but in the end its worth a watch if you like some good mildly bloody action.

Neither man has genius revelations, but address some of the great philosophical questions as basically regular people (who happen to be in the world of theater, so the conversation is shaped as such). Although Andre waxes on about Tibetans saying nothing over tea, isn't there something wonderful and intimate about dinner conversation itself?
