What about La Passione?
This movie seems to be the most Chris-related?

Haven,t seen "La Passione" Can,t seem to get it here at all. "Parting Shots" is available and cheap to buy though. You mentioned you are not keen on "La Passione" and it is certainly different to his usual music. I do like most of it, and it is another example of his great talent!"!!!!!

Now I'm not keen on it, but might be after watching... and even if I received the worst reviews about any of Chris' film, I still would see them all :mrgreen:

I'll look for those "Party shots"

Hi Zgred,
Did you know that Chris plays 12 instruments in La Passione?
He is one talented man! Yes try and get Parting Shots if you can. although he doesn,t sing in it. There is some background singing by him though. Some say that it is not a very good film, but Ienjoyed it!

I think you are right about listening very carefully to the words of his lyrics. That was what first drew me to him.

Take care,

Leila :)

I have searched for a while about it, half of the audience left a comment like "horrible" or "boring"... well, doesn't matter :mrgreen: My goal is not to make an opinion of Chris as an actor, but just experience his other-than-musical skills. Anyway, other viewers wrote that it's quite similar to "Death wish" which I like a lot, so I think I'd like the film.

Thanks :) I found it essential

It is a personal thing. I know many people did not like it. It is a "black" comedy. If you want to buy it on the internet, you can get it from sendit.com for about £4.50 English money. Good luck! :)

Thanks I'll keep this in mind but first I'll try to find it where I live. My English is still not so good and I prefer to watch it translated, at least once ;)
