Film Club Presents

After a short hiatus Film Club will reconvene this weekend, usual time and place (almost goes without saying, really).

Those very nice people at cinema paradiso have arranged to have a DVD popped through our letterbox and Mrs The Millbrooker and I will be ready to enjoy the company of all the usual suspects.

This week's presentation will be a Bosnian film (we're nothing if not cosmopolitan at Film Club) originally released in 1996, only four years after its setting during the Bosnian war. Srdjan Dragojevic's Pretty Village Pretty Flame (originally entitled Lepa Sela Lepo Gore).
I have little idea whether we'll like it or not, or even whether we'll consider it a success cinematically - but that's the point, I guess.

Interesting factette gleaned from Imdb: "For the 100 days of the shoot, the only food for the crew was frozen hamburgers prepared in a microwave." Yummy.

Hope to see all the film clubbers on Sunday.
