Film – Les âmes de papier Cine Lumiere South Kensington London 12th January 2015

Eight of us went to see this film last night at the Cine Lumiere in South Kensington and we all came out thinking what an amazing film. It was I think for all of us beautiful and stunning. The French certainly know how to tell a story. In the time of films consisting of loud bangs and flashes and where in the Cineworld we go to the sound permeates through from the screen next door this film is just a good story. The visual equivalent of a good book. It is a beautiful tale of life, love and loss. The actors and actresses don’t appear to have had fortunes spent on plastic and teeth but instead look like you and I. And of course there is the eccentricity of Parisian neighbours and what a city to have as a backdrop. Maybe more people want to come to London but Paris is a far more beautiful city and long may it remain so.

French film – Mea Culpa – Cine Lumiere South Kensington London

This evening we went to the Cine Lumiere situated in the Institut Francais in the heart of South Kensington. It is an action packed film but a little light on the plot with even a fairly large hole in it but still a good romp of a police buddy movie. It is a story about Simon and Franck a close pair but as we join the film in the present with flashbacks Simon is working as a security guard and has left the force. We are fed snippets of information between various chase and fight scenes. All in all well worth seeing. Especially at the Cine Lumiere.

Restaurant review – Pappa Roma South Kensington

I think we have been to this great little restaurant in Glendower Place three times after seeing films at the Cine Lumiere just round the corner. The food is nice and very tasty, the staff very pleasant and the prices very reasonable. We will definitely be going again. http://www.papparoma.com.

French film – Prêt à tout – Anything for Alice Ciné lumière

We went to see this great lighthearted French romcom on Tuesday evening at South Kensington’s Ciné lumière. A wonderful cinema that is still great value for money but not very well attended. It is a shame that so many Brits won’t go to a film with sub titles but will sit through so many Hollywood slops that rely on ever louder sound and visual effects often lacking even a reasonable level of a plot. This film has some very funny gags, and yes, it is predictable in many ways but for entertainment value it is worth watching. The story won’t tax your mind too much but after a busy day at work it is a good film to help you unwind.
