The Grocers Son
We watched documentary French film maker Eric Guirado's first fictional film The Grocer's Son last week and were pleasantly surprised.
Starring Nicholas Cazale as a grumpy young man given the task of looking after his father's mobile grocery business whilst he recovers from a heart attack and ClotildeHesme as the woman he has a crush on. I found it to be a lovely gentle, quietly amusing film.
It wasn't too soppy or sentimental. Just the thing to watch on a lazy Sunday evening.
I love making things, drawing, reading and travelling to places that I've never been to before...going round the corner to see what's there. I am drawn like a moth to lights and lanterns, arthouse films, galleries, coffee shops, orchids, old black and white photographs, rooting around flea markets and jumble sales, newsprint and text, Brick Lane, Camden and Portobello Road.
