    Birdsong at London Film Festival

    The programme for the London Film Festival has been announced and amongst the treats for thos eable to attend is Birdsong (El Cant Dels Ocells). The festival has done a great job with its website: in addition to a neat summary there are also 11 stills from the film both in colour and black and white.

    The film will be playing on Thursday 16th October at 18:30in National Film Theatre 3 and again at 16:15 the next day (Friday 17th October), this time in the ICA Cinema. I'm not sure whether I'll be able to make it, but the following snippet from Maria Delgado capsule review certainly tempts me:
    Serra’s visual palette, however, moving effortlessly from Laurel and Hardy’s Another Fine Mess to Welles’ Chimes at Midnight, shows a film-maker effortlessly able to draw on the mythology of the past to examine what spirituality means in our present day world.
