    Blame It On Fidel

    Please note that the film is in French, but it has English subtitles. Yes, I sometimes you have to be in a certain "mood" to watch these types of films, but it's worth it. Especially considering it's only available until 11:34PM Sun, 19 Dec 2010 - although my experience with iPlayer has shown that the timing is not accurate. It may get taken off at midnight, so please take time to watch it.

    You do not need a television licence to catch-up on television programmes in BBC iPlayer.

    Why should we watch it?
    I forgot to post a synopsis: A nine year-old girl weathers big changes in her household as her parents become radical political activists in 1970-71 Paris.

    Sometimes it's nice to mix it up between action and comedy. I just thought some people would like seeing a good, old fashioned drama. Especially considering it's not in English. Being open to new types of films is always a good thing.

    It's a widely acclaimed film:
    Based on critics reviews it's 93/100
    Based on top critics it's 100/100
    And, based on the audience it's 90/100.

    As I said, if you have time and want to see a good film watch it, if you don't, then don't watch it. But please, don't come into threads with a "I'm not going to watch and and no matter what you say isn't going to change that attitude". It's just a waste of time.

    Thanks, I have to admit I love some of the foreign films that BBC4 broadcast every now and again. One that I can remember distinctly is 'The Wave' a German production that parables the dangers of fascism and dictatorship, it's a really really great film that pretty much everyone can relate to.

    It sounds interesting. I'll watch it later when I have a few hours to spare. I haven't watched a foreign movie in quite a long time, but I do enjoy them. :yes:

    But, considering the extent to which the BBC is facing cuts, you should buy one, if you value its programming.

    I really don't have time to watch TV live. The only thing I really watch is sports and some films. All of which I prefer to watch either alone (films like Blame It on Fidel) or with friends at a bar or something (like a football match). I take time to watch football live when it's on because it's a good way to see friends.

    And even if I did have time, there aren't that many good shows (The Apprentice is almost over). And all the good shows are halfway through the lifespan (eg How I Met Your Mother). So I would have to watch them online to catch up, and by then I'll just get websites to watch them.

    As a single male, there are more attractive girls out there in the world than some of the girls I see everyday.

    Assume Jessica Alba was single: would you stop talking to an attractive girl you met because Jessica Alba is better looking?

    If you don't listen/watch new things, you won't be open to new things.

    Sigh, no, losing my sanity over here, I should get the e-mail on Monday and the letter on Tuesday. And wow, that's amazing, what about Harry and Parekhs?

    ALSO, congrats on York and Nottingham! Cambridge are minor youts, did they give a reason for rejecting you?
