The Ribbon Cutter, The Honourable Woman - BBC Two

image

Following Ephra’s questions and the revelations at the end of episode 3, it’s no surprise that episode 4 will take us back to what happened to Nessa and Atika.

It’s difficult to watch, but it’s absolutely necessary…. says Alison Graham

Now that’s what I call properly negative! Well done!

In time-honoured fashion I’ll say: her private life’s her own business….

Still Life

metromediaandphotography:

With only his second film as director, Italian filmmaker Uberto Pasolini has produced an exquisite character study of a man we never actually meet. With Still Life, Pasolini presents a story that seems so serene and simple on the surface, yet offers so much more in its exploration of themes such as friendship, memory and death. Furthermore, the film examines the lasting implications – both…

And what about Andrew’s role? Is there more than was shown in the trailer?
 just two more scenes—and he plays multo unsimpatico (must have been fun…) 
efficient smug bureaucrat with horrible hair…(the parting doesn’t suit him at all) 
a comedic caricature he so wants to play… with a really irritating voice!
definitely not a man in crisis (and he underplays it suitably)
Thanks to Andrea for this review! :)

Ephra

We must wonder why Ephra (brilliant Andrew Buchan) seems so detached and remote, particularly from his febrile wife - pondered Alison Graham.

Indeed we must! For while Ephra appears to be both warm in his manner towards his children and quick to hold or pick them up

his apparent physical reticence or aversion towards Rachel seems obvious.

From avoiding looking at her (until her words force him to respond); to maintaining a distinct physical distance from her (whether sitting at a table, in the car, or in bed), he even offers no obvious solace when she is traumatised by the attack at the lunch. His only response to her appears to be intoning “Rachel!” with either surprise or disdain.

image

To date there have been no instances where he has reached to her.

But then, Rachel appears to accept this too. She maintains her distance by turning away from him in bed,image

or just observing his strange behaviour, such as prying on Atika in the bathroom, without comment.

Her one success was to reach and squeeze his hand when his father’s assassination was mentioned, though this was quickly rebuffed.

image

Then she stepped towards Ephra to seek his agreement concerning sharing Atika’s secret - but this too was denied by his closed body language.

image

When he has to be near her he maintains this closed posture - even crossing his legs (! - very unusual for Andy).

image

Despite this, Rachel can take the upper hand when necessary, and box Ephra into a corner, both verbally and physically, to get her own way.

image

However, even when alone, Ephra sits with crossed legs, keeping himself enclosed.

image

And his greeting embraces with both Schlomo and Nessa show some reticence too.

image

In contrast, his exchanges with Atika show more warmth, concern and submission. He still maintains his distance, typically with hands in pockets and enigmatic gaze. However, she knows how to force his hand

image

and engage him physically!

image

All in all a rather marvellous characterisation - with a physical transformation such as we have come to expect.

Oh yes - brilliant Andrew Buchan!

What happened when you were kidnapped? What happened to Kasim’s father?

Is Kasim mine? Then whose is he?

Who is Kasim’s father?

Ephra nails (nearly) all the questions….

For some possible answers go here.

The Broadchurch effect appears to be continuing, making the news media more and more interested in Andrew, and it’s now enhanced by his appearance in The Honourable Woman too!
Now The Independent has published two articles about him on the same day - no doubt based on one interview!
Broadchurch star on why he’d never say no to Hollywood (x)
Will he follow if Hollywood beckons?
It’s always hard to say. You never say no to Hollywood, it’s all dependant on the script, isn’t it? But you’d be daft to say no to them, I think because it’s such great opportunity over there isn’t it?
and
Broadchurch series 2: Show will be ‘nothing like Midsomer Murders’ (y)
It’ll be nothing like Midsomer Murders and I don’t mean that in a disrespectful way – far from – I’m a huge fan of Neil Dudgeon, if that helps. But by that, I just mean plot-wise, it’ll be vastly different. I can’t give anything away about the plot.
