Still in Edinburgh

But I've had a couple of days off the film festival, because A was here, and instead of films, we did art, food and shopping!

The last film I saw before A arrived on Monday was "Warsaw Dark" directed by Christopher Doyle, fabulous cinematographer but unfortunately not having that same glorious vision as a director. The film was a mess visually and story-wise, leaving me clueless as to what was going on most of the time.

We saw a fabulous exhibition at the Gallery of Modern Art - "Foto: Modernity in Central Europe 1919-1945" - very absorbing, well worth visiting and spending a good chunk of time there.

And just to do a quick EIFF catch up, at last I can post photos:

The jury, headed by Danny Huston and also including producer Sigurjon Sighvatsson, actor Joely Richardson, director Iain Softley and the author Scarlett Thomas.

Back with more reviews tomorrow.
