waiting for 1 July when it will be delivered (then i can make if i want too some remarks)
Promises to be a great one!
"Harry Brown" you say?, well it's not his best movie (in my humble opinion), but the scene play is good. Except for a very vulgar language, I would say, it would have been an excellent picture. I understand that the language is suppose to reflect the current state of the British modern slums (called, perhaps somehow ironically, "housing complexes"), in all major cities. But I would like to point out that years ago people would go to the movie theater "to see a good, educational picture"
with the proper language spoken in the first place. Well, apparently, it's not the case anymore; the more slang the better.
Writing about Sir Michael Caine, I'd like to mention that I've seen recently another picture with him - "Is Anybody There?" (2009) - filmed in a family nursing (retirement) home. He's playing a senile ex-illusionist, haunted by Alzheimer's disease but still trying to convey a message to a boy. I found it a very good movie.
By-the-way, have you seen, some years ago, Michael Caine's documentary in which he teaches acting techniques and tricks to some university students? I found it very interesting, indeed. I was virtually glued to the TV screen. I wonder it this material had ever been issued on a video?
Best regards to you,
