Salmon Fishing in the Yemen
July 11, 2012 § 5 Comments
Watched Salmon Fishing in the Yemen two nights ago. What can I say, I have not felt such joy and pleasure watching a film for months! Family senior warned me as we sat down to watch it – let us not expect anything from this film, it appears a bit on the ‘moody’ side (a peculiar word to describe a film, I agree) and the IMDB score is not great, but we both absolutely loved it! I laughed so hard at times I had tears running down my cheeks, what an amazing feeling to feel so liberated, so relieved – not even sure why it felt so relieving to watch it? – so…so….happy. Yes, happy. Happy to listen and understand the words spoken and the words unsaid, happy that there are people out there who see a purpose in making these films, happy to see how beautiful people are, really really radiantly beautiful with their quirks and habits, and their desire to love and be loved.
I highly recommend this film to anyone looking to have a nice evening on the sofa. Do let me know what you think of Patricia Maxwell instant messaging the Prime Minister. The scenes had me in stitches.
