His and Hers
This is lovely. It’s a documentary film about women’s relationships with the men in their lives. It’s a series of interviews with women from very small girls to little old ladies. We never see the men they are talking about. It was, in a funny way, a description of everywoman. Or, at least, every Irish woman. All of the interviewees are from the Irish midlands. All of the interviews take place in the women’s homes and as well as the women, the varied styles of interior decoration favoured by the Irish public also played a supporting role. It was a little bit too long and sad at the end but still really great. I wonder will it travel? Have a look at the trailer and see what you think.
One whole evening I will never get back. This is directed by the guy who did “The Squid and the Whale”. If you liked that film, do not let this tempt you in. Really. Ben Stiller is an annoying 40 year old who is really nasty. He has a relationship (in the broadest sense of the word – or as the description in the cinema magazine put it, “he forges a connection”) with a 23 old girl who is slightly clueless. I knew that I was doomed when I found myself thinking, “My God, what would her poor mother think if she could see her lovely daughter being abused like this?”

Michael was traumatised and wept throughout but the others loved it.
Couldn’t get in to “Inception” on Saturday night. Probably for the best. We went for a walk along the quays and watched the sunset instead.
