Win Mr Morgan’s Last Love on DVD

27 August 2014 2:44 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

To mark the release of Mr. Morgan’s Last Love on 1st September, we’ve been given 3 copies to give away one DVD.

From the day Pauline (Clémence Poésy) lends him a helping hand on the bus, the stubborn, weary Matthew Morgan (Michael Caine) stumbles back to happiness. Swept off his old feet by the young woman’s disarming vitality and unwavering optimism, the quiet teacher becomes an unlikely student of living. In their everyday adventures of walks through Paris, lunches in the park, and trips to the country, the odd couple explores the treasures of friendship, the comfort of companionship, the taste of romance – and the meaning of family. Through their mutual restoration of faith in people who care, Pauline embraces the idea of a new kind of family while Matthew finally reconnects with his estranged son Miles (Justin Kirk), who in turn finds himself deeply affected by the changes in his father. »

Mr. Morgan’s Last Love Review

11 July 2014 7:30 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

In the opening scene to Sandra Nettelbeck’s amiable and touching drama Mr. Morgan’s Last Love, we’re introduced to the eponymous lead, played by Michael Caine, as he’s being ushered out of a room by a small collective of people. They’re all speaking French to him, and the director refuses to subtitle their words. Instantly we’re put into his shoes, somewhat unaware and confused, establishing a sense of loneliness from the word, which ultimately proves to be the prevalent component to this affecting piece.

Caine plays Matthew Morgan, widowed and isolated in his Paris apartment, longing for some attention from his son Miles (Justin Kirk) and daughter Karen (Gillian Anderson), as he contemplates suicide. However he is inspired and rejuvenated when he meets the young Pauline (Clémence Poésy) on the bus home, instantly forming a rapport with the dance teacher, who convinces him to take one of her classes. »

Movie Review – Mr. Morgan’s Last Love (2013)

9 July 2014 12:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Mr. Morgan’s Last Love, 2013

Directed by Sandra Nettelbeck

Starring Michael Caine, Clemence Poesy, Justin Kirk, Gillian Anderson

Synopsis:

A look at the life-changing connection between a retired and widowed American philosophy professor and a young Parisian dance teacher.

Mr. Morgan’s Last Love is nice. Now when I say nice, what I am really saying is ‘suitable for daytime television scheduling’. In fact, if we’re honest, that is probably the best place for it. Inoffensive, occasionally charming, flimsy and a little bit too twee for its own good, this mostly harmless little tale about the life of widower, Matthew (Caine), living in Paris shortly after the death of his wife is a melancholy picture postcard for those that either wistfully yearn for an eternal love lost or have a romantic notion of Paris that has yet to be realised.

Following the death of his lifelong partner and apparent soul mate, »

Olga Kurylenko Boards Benoit Philippon’s ‘Lota’

2 July 2014 6:35 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paris– Olga Kurylenko (“To The Wonder”), Gregory Fitoussi (“World War Z”) and Emir Kusturica (“7 Days in Havana”) are set to topline “Lota,” a French Guiana-set dramedy directed by Benoit Philippon (“Lullaby”).

Described by Philippon as a variation on the themes of Vladimir Nabokov’s “Lolita,” pic will star Kurylenko as a young woman who was abused during her childhood and struggles to build healthy relationships with men.

“As in ‘Magnolia,’ ‘Lota’ follows various characters whose lives intersect,” said Philippon, who also cited “Mud” as a source of inspiration for “Lota”‘s dream-like atmosphere, visual style and the main character’s soul searching.

“Kurylenko’s character is both a princess and a warrior and it’s that ambivalence that makes her so fascinating,” explained Philippon, adding that he’s interested in strong female characters such as the ones portrayed in movies by Quentin Tarantino, John Cassavetes and Tennessee Williams.

Cast is completed by Jean-Pierre Martins, »

The Tunnel sequel aims to reunite Stephen Dillane and Clémence Poésy

14 March 2014 7:50 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Sky Atlantic planning second series of serial killer drama adapted from Scandinavian original The Bridge

Sky will look to reunite Stephen Dillane and Clémence Poésy in a sequel to its serial killer thriller The Tunnel, its adaptation of Scandinavian crime noir, The Bridge.

The Tunnel proved to be one of Sky Atlantic's most popular homegrown dramas, beginning with nearly 500,000 viewers when it launched last year.

The broadcaster is now developing a sequel, although it will not be an adaptation of the second series of The Bridge, which recently ended on BBC4, but an entirely new series.

It is thought likely the sequel will focus on another murder investigation featuring UK and French locations and police, although Sky has not committed to a full series commission yet.

Sky is keen to reunite Game of Thrones star Dillane, as laid-back British detective Karl Roebuck, and Poésy as his uptight French opposite number, »

‘The Tunnel’ DVD Review

11 January 2014 8:02 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

I guess when starting this review of The Tunnel I will have to state something, yes I know it’s a remake of The Bridge and no I’ve not seen it yet but it’s safe to assume I will be watching it in the future.  Now we have got our way past that I can say that this review will be on The Tunnel and based on the show itself, not a comparison to the original.

When a body is found in the service tunnels in the Channel Tunnel between the United Kingdom and France the French detective Elise Wassermann (Clémence Poésy) claims jurisdiction as the body appears to be that of a French politician.  This are complicated though as the body splits apart leaving the legs on the UK side of the border line and the torso in France.  More sinister is the fact that the two-part »

Stephen Dillane on The Tunnel, crime thrillers and Game of Thrones

10 January 2014 1:00 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Scandi crime drama The Bridge may have attracted a strong fan following in the UK, but one person who's never seen the noirish thriller is actor Stephen Dillane, who recently starred in The Tunnel, a new series based on the Nordic original.

"I had no idea at all of the existence of the Scandinavian show when I was first sent the script," admits Dillane - who plays laid-back British detective Karl Roebuck. "I was told that there was this other project called The Bridge and it was then a question of whether to look at it or not, and I decided not to.

"I wanted to come at it fresh. I think sometimes you can look at original material and you can develop attachments that aren't necessarily helpful."

With no concept of the project's origins, it was simply a "well-written" script that attracted Dillane to The Tunnel and the character of Karl, »

The Bridge star talks series 2: 'I thought no one would like Saga'

3 January 2014 1:00 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

The Bridge was one of a roster of Scandinavian drama series – since dubbed 'Nordic Noir' – that captured the imagination of UK audiences in the past two years.

Now returning to BBC Four for a second series, the crime thriller still retains many of the familiar elements that attracted viewers first time round – chiefly Sofia Helin's wonderful Saga – but also sees it grow and develop from the episodes that aired here in early 2012.

"I'm very proud of the visual development with this series," says Helin. "This season, we had one main director who did the first four episodes and the two last episodes. We had someone who could see the whole picture, so that's different from the first."

Why does Helin believe that the first series of The Bridge struck such a chord with BBC Four viewers though? "I think The Bridge is so popular because it offers another universe. »
