Reading Time: 4 minutes Keen anticipation, that’s the best way to describe how I felt about the arrival of the second season of Love & Anarchy. I thoroughly enjoyed the first season. Would this return match the first, or, perhaps surpass it?
Reading Time: 3 minutes The premise of this series seemed a bit different from the ordinary and the trailer was appealing. Combining this with the never-disappointing Simon Sears and Mikael Birkkjær I was keen to watch this new, Danish Netflix offering.
Reading Time: 7 minutes Siri and David are 24 years old, they have been together since they were 17, and are still very much in love, at least they think they are. Originally from Sweden, they are now living in London while Siri completes her legal studies, David, the wage-earner, is working in telemarketing and they are renting a flat with “issues” — a cracked ceiling above the bed… if ever there was a more obvious metaphor!
Reading Time: 5 minutes Toscana is not, on the face of it, the sort of film that I am usually drawn to, however being the first-ever Danish Netflix movie and set, in part at least, in Tuscany which I have visited I thought, why not?
Reading Time: 6 minutes Clark Olofsson himself is the focus of this miniseries and, as is made clear at the start of each episode, it is based on truths and lies. This is not, just in case you were wondering, a documentary. It is also not for the prudish or the easily offended and it lays its wares out in this respect right from the very first scene. Pearl-clutchers, you have been duly warned.
Reading Time: 7 minutes Imagine my delight the other week when… I stumbled upon the complete series of The Dying Detective on Youtube, complete with English subtitles. It has NEVER been available in the UK until now! I have read the book it is based upon and could not wait to see if it stayed faithful to the storyline and ending. So what did I make of The Dying Detective?
Reading Time: 6 minutes There has been a myriad of reviews of The Worst Person in the World over the past year or so and this is my own, personal response to this multi-award-winning and nominated film.
Reading Time: 5 minutes Rewatching a series or film can be a strange experience. For me, this rewatch of the Swedish series Caliphate was certainly that. I had abiding memories of the series and yet there were things I had completely forgotten about or only had the vaguest recollection of when I watched again. I had not really expected watching to be a more intense experience the second time (I did not think it could be as the first was very intense) but I found most of it even more nerve-wracking the second time. Sometimes ignorance is (relative) bliss.
Reading Time: 4 minutes I watched and wrote a review of Battle which is the film from 2018 that precedes this one. Having watched the sequel, I would suggest watching them in order and perhaps not leaving too long between. My main reasons for this are that you will not know the history of the characters and their relationships unless you have watched the first film.
Reading Time: 5 minutes New Nurses season 2, is essentially a soap opera. Everything is set around the hospital and we only really see events in and around it. As with every good soap opera, there is a range of characters who develop over time and interact. It was unfortunate for me, as a viewer, that we lose the character that I found most interesting in season 1 fairly early on in season 2 and another never reappears.
