Cannes Film Review: ‘The Salvation’

16 May 2014 6:01 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Shot in South Africa, but set somewhere on the lawless American frontier, “The Salvation” answers that great unasked question of how a Western might sound with a Danish accent. In putting his brand on the dusty genre, director Kristian Levring (“The King Is Alive”) has abandoned all trace of his involvement with the Dogma 95 movement, delivering a highly stylized widescreen revenge picture loaded with weapons and driven entirely by “superficial action” (both no-nos before). Midnight-movie aficionados should approve — as will “Hannibal” star Mads Mikkelsen’s growing fanbase — though the pic is trying to drink from a dry well where box office is concerned.

Of course, Mikkelsen’s English is good enough that he could play an American native, or even a Native American, on account of his sharp profile. Instead, Levring and co-writer Anders Thomas Jensen have opted to keep him Danish, describing his character, Jon, as an ex-soldier who »

16 April 2014 4:05 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Shetland is to return for a third series on BBC One.

BBC Scotland's crime drama has been recommissioned for a new six-part series, following its recently completed second run.

Douglas Henshall stars as Di Jimmy Perez in the series, which is adapted from Ann Cleeves's Shetland crime novels.

Christopher Aird, BBC head of drama production Scotland, said: "Shetland is a really distinctive crime series that has proved hugely popular with audiences both here in Scotland and across the rest of the UK. I am thrilled it has been commissioned for a third outing, and rest assured we have some really exciting plans for viewers from Di Perez and his team."

Producer Elaine Collins of ITV Studios added: "I'm delighted that Shetland has been recommissioned and proud to have made a distinctive Scottish show that is enjoyed all over the UK. It's also been a pleasure to work with outstanding actors like Douglas Henshall, »

What to Watch: Tonight's TV Picks - The Big Allotment Challenge

The Big Allotment Challenge: BBC Two, 8pm

Fern Britton hosts a new show where nine pairs of gardeners compete to produce the best fruit and vegetables from their allotment. Filming took place over several months, so throughout the six-part series, the cameras will flit back and forth to show the contestants' progress. While they play the long game with their gardening, the competitors are also tasked with more immediate tasks, such as flower arrangement and production of jams and jellies.

Gardening experts are on hand to judge the hopefuls: Royal Horticultural Society judge Jim Buttress, floral designer Jonathan Moseley and food writer Thane Prince will give their verdicts on the efforts and decide which of the teams will have to leave the competition.

Football: Chelsea v Galatasaray

7.30pm, ITV

Despite faring far better than the other English clubs in their Champions League round of 16 first-leg, Chelsea had reason to be disappointed with their 1-1 draw at Galatasaray's Türk Telekom Arena, a game in which, for the most part, they were dominant. Nevertheless, José Mourinho's charges are strong favourites to qualify here, but will be wary of former striker Didier Drogba who, though having just turned 36, still possesses qualities to trouble the hardiest of defences.

Parkinson: Masterclass

8pm, Sky Arts 1

Shetland; Original Drama – TV review

12 March 2014 6:40 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

There's something of the Nordic about Shetland – but sadly no impressive knitwear on show

In the novel Raven Black by Ann Cleeves, from which the first two-part story of Shetland (BBC1) is adapted, it's winter and the islands are covered in a thick layer of snow when a girl's body is discovered. Here they've changed the season, to the very opposite, mid-summer, when it never properly gets dark. Perhaps it was to make filming easier, to literally shed light on proceedings.

Certainly it means we get to see the eerie, sad landscape and grey skies that are so much a part of it. And actually it's just as effective a backdrop – constant light is very nearly as oppressive and depressing as constant dark. A community, including Di Jimmy Perez (Douglas Henshall), is already on edge through lack of sleep when the body is found. Remember Al Pacino in Insomnia? Like that. »

Live UEFA Champions League: Bayern Munich v Arsenal

7.30pm, ITV

After a 2-0 reverse in the Champions League round-of-16 first leg, Arsenal head to Bayern Munich's Allianz Arena in search of the miraculous: they require a victory by two clear goals here, against the current holders. It looks a mammoth task, though Arsène Wenger's side will draw strength from their last visit to this ground when they achieved that exact result. Manchester City, themselves after an unlikely away victory, face Barcelona tomorrow (7pm, Sky Sports 1). Gwilym Mumford

Shetland: the show that needs moisturiser, now!

It may be permanently dark, plagued by murder and with residents who communicate only by glaring, but the BBC1 drama is still nice at this time of year

Murky crime drama Shetland (Tuesday, 9pm, BBC1) returns this week for a second series, revealing Shetland as the most eerie – and overcast – location on Earth. Five minutes in, crows are pecking out a dead goth's eyes, and it only gets better from there.

The natives of bonnily named Ravenswick think the all-u-can-eat carrion buffet – or Catherine as she was previously known – is the second victim of a serial killer. They're eyeing up their pitchforks like starved cats surveying a discarded Dairylea triangle. The fact that the first victim was killed 19 years ago seems odd, though. There's only so much traipsing sodden hills one person can do; once your Pringles supply from the nearest point of civilisation has been depleted, and anyone with »
