I asked Greg to let me have a brief biography. Here it is:

Savage Amusement

This bright and sunny Monday (though still bitterly cold and windy, I must say) I felt like getting off to a lively start. Last week a follower commented how he rarely gets much enjoyment from dance, so this little excerpt from Rameau’s 1735 opera-ballet Les Indes galantes will hopefully set him off on the right foot.

 

Rameau

Incidentally, this piece is commonly known as the Dance of the Savages, not terribly PC these days. However, note that it is knocking on for 300 years old and was inspired by Louis XV’s meeting with chiefs of the Illinois Metchigamea tribe when they sealed a pact by dancing in the Theatre Italien. Does this treasure we have inherited justify the French invasion of Illinois? Not in my book, but we can still enjoy it as a product of the times.

 

Livide – French and Tasty

Livide is a 2011 French supernatural horror film directed and written by Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo.

Livide

Within a vast, desolate and slowly decaying mansion an ageing woman lies in a coma kept alive by a life support machine. Assigned to look after her (hey, this is the official blurb – she isn’t exactly ‘assigned to look after her’ but it spoils it not one jot), a young care worker named Lucy discovers that the old woman is Madame Jessel, previously a ballet teacher of some repute and rumored to have hidden great riches inside the house.

Livide 3

Determined to find the treasure, Lucy and two of her friends break in at night but uncover a darker secret that will throw them into a deadly labyrinth of supernatural hell.

I have to say the French continually turn out better films than food. Livide had some bad reviews – and good – but I enjoyed it. My sole criticism is that in some shots the lighting could have been better: dark is dark, we know, but watching a black screen makes it hard to follow the story. Cependant – 8.5/10
