Late Quartet, A

Submitted by Druss on Wed, 2013-01-30 02:04

The setting was good, the music was classical, and the acting was mostly well above par. However, the script was lacking, the characters lacked depth, and the plot hurried along too quickly towards a very abrupt end. It was enjoyably different. Unfortunately, I do not expect it to be memorable.

A weak plot, dull direction and good acting make this this French movie a real mixed bag. However, it is about music and classical music at that and I can overlook even Godzilla-sized issues for its sake. It is also a comedy and there are some moments of note. But all the whole, it really isn't all that funny.

Don't expect much out of this one and just enjoy it for the music.

Anna Russell: Comedienne par excellence

The following are a bunch of Anna Russell videos that showcase some of her wonderful wit. While, the older videos (especially the analysis of the Ring cycle) were taken when she was well past her prime, they are still very entertaining, if not as good as the audio version recorded much earlier.

Nodame Cantabile - Paris Hen

Submitted by Druss on Sun, 2009-02-22 13:51

I've been a huge fan of Nodame Cantabile ever since it was released. I've watched the live-action series, read the manga and also watched series one of the anime. This review deals with the anime sequel, dubbed "Nodame Cantabile: Paris Hen", which deals with Nodame and Chiaki's stay in Paris.

You should probably not be reading further if you are yet to see the first series.
