  • In the Family

    In the Family 2011

    ★★★★ Watched 16 Jun, 2015

    I as watching an Australian series Redfern Now and the story line of one episode reminded me of this excellent film. Sensitive performance by Patrick Wang who also directed. This is a real treat of a film.

    Attacking the Devil: Harold Evans and the Last Nazi War Crime 2014

    ★★★★★ Watched 29 May, 2016

    Not enough star to show how important this documentary. I had seen a documentary on thalidomide many years ago on Canadian tv. That was shocking. But I forgot about it, until the tv show Call the Midwife did a couple of episodes on the up close and personal tragedy of thalidomide. Now this documentary shone another light on the background to this tragic injustice.

    What a lovely film, inspiring for me as a teacher, but I also loved the flow of time as seen in the changes to the village and its children. May seem slow to some, but the pacing was perfect for this film.

    It was hard to watch a 13 year old have sex with an older man and to witness the many bad decisions she makes but the resolution makes it all worthwhile and important.
