74 % on Rotten Tomatoes

Checking the reviews on our next film WHERE’D YOU GO, BERNADETTE, it turns out to get quite a few different scores; most professional critics mostly don’t like it, on the other hand the audience scores are good. One example is Rotten Tomatoes.

It’s probably best to check out the trailer by yourself and get your own impression – the way we see it, the film is thoughtful, funny, quirky and full of inspiration = worth watching.

See you next week!

Don’t forget PLATFORM 2 will be there and play live before the film!

Pictures of Matchstick Men

We still owe you some infos about Laurence Stephen Lowry … the English artist whose life is portrayed in our next ELFs film.

L. S. Lowry (1887 – 1976) had his very own style of painting, he used only few colours and his figures were often referred to as “matchstick men”. His motives were scenes of life in the industrial districts of England; landscape and portrait works were found only after his death.

All in all Lowry made about 1.000 paintings and over 8.000 drawings.

Lowry holds the record of “rejecting the most number of British honours”. Most of his work is displayed today a gallery in Salford, called “The Lowry”. It was opened in the year 2000 and hosts around 400 L. S. Lowry’s works.

He was also referred to in popular culture, e.g. “Pictures of Matchstick Men” is the name of Status Quo’s first hit single.

See more about Lowry’s interesting biography on this Wikipedia link.

A film with “an appealing old school charm”

Dear Film Fans,

it’s nice to see you again at the Alte Gerberei, for another movie night with a film in English, some drinks from the bar, live music before the film, all as usual.

“Mrs. Lowry and Son has an appealing old-school charm and two performances that make it worth seeing. It addresses some well-explored issues of parenthood, living up to parental expectations vs. following your own path, and following your dreams. …” says Alex Saveliev in his review of Mrs Lowry & Son. See the full Filmthreat article here.

L. S. Lowry worked as a rent collector by day, at night he followed his true passion: painting. The film portrays Lowry’s life at a time before he became famous for his art.

More background details will follow in a few days – we hope to see you next Thursday!
