Going to see the silent movie The Artist tomorrow. Interesting.
Even worse than that, it's in black and white.
PS - I've never been keen on the French.
How will you understand it? All of their mime will be in French!
Son't forget to take the Royal Interpreter with you. BTW, Who is the Royal interpreter? Scholar would fit the bill as he claims to know everything, However, Giron has more insight (judging by his insightful posts), though RW would be a better diplomat and could represent you in absentia. Charles, though, would probably work with all his years as a cabbie. He could probably speak Arabic quite well. Mary would be too busy teaching, and the rest of us, well.........
It's not in French at all - some of the actors are French, but the film is not.
I thought it was charming. And the 1920's costumes were beautiful. Took a bit to get used to the fact that the actors were talking on screen and not being able to hear what they were saying, so all in all a very different movie experience.
And from the sublime to the ridiculous - seeing the Muppet Movie on Saturday!!
I like it!
Its a retrograde step in cinema, I don't think it will catch on jmb
Well, it would seem that I am not the only person who liked the Artist, judging by last nights BAFTAs.
Oh, and FYI... The Muppet movie is fantastic! I actually cried with laughter! A really good feel good movie - all singing, dancing muppet madness. Two thumbs way way up!
"The Emperor's New Clothes" springs to my mind.
