Storyline

Michael Caine teaches the art of movie acting to five young actors, who perform scenes from Alfie (1966), Deathtrap (1982) and Educating Rita (1983). He talks about how to perform in close-ups and extreme close-ups. He warns about the continuity dangers of smoking cigarettes or fiddling with props. He talks about screen tests, special effects men who are cavalier about your safety and speaking to someone who is off camera. The movie camera is your best friend and most attentive lover, he says, even though you invariably ignore her. The art of movie acting can be summed up in one word: relax! Written by J. Spurlin

Michael Caine teachers English Drama students how to act for TV & Film
12 April 1999 | by (San Rafael, CA) – See all my reviews

This is a rather fascinating hour long documentary where Michael Caine teaches a small group of students how much different it is to act for the camera, as opposed to a live audience. After you see it, you will look at acting in films in a different way, and notice little details that separate great actors from good ones.
