RELEASES! Salmon fishing in the Yemen (2011) | The Searchers (1956)April 19, 2012
Here come the recommendations of the weekend with two interesting films, a British drama signed by Swedish film director Lasse Hallström starring Ewan McGregor, and one of the best films ever, the canonic western The Searchers, filmed in an American mythic scenario with the ideal hero: John Wayne. An absolute masterwork directed by John Ford.
RELEASES! (So British!) Salmon fishing in the Yemen (2011)
Veteran film director Lasse Hallström returns with a British film with an unusual title: Salmon fishing in The Yemen. It looks like ridiculous but there is a beautiful romance story inside. We need to remember the past successes of this director for trying to confide in him, like: What’s eating Gilbert Grape? (1993) The film that discovered Leonardo Di Caprio starring Johnny Deep; The Cider House Rules (1999) based on a novel by John Irving, with several Oscars, or Chocolat (2000), with Johnny Deep and Juliette Binoche. So, we can imagine what kind of film could be this release.
