gondolas

(no subject)

Last night I went into work to watch Ten Canoes.
An Australian Aboriginal film with subtitles. Very different but I enjoyed it a lot. A young man is going on his first hunting trip. He has eyes on one of his older brother's wives. The older brother tells him a story as they go along. A story set thousands of years before but with striking similarities to their own story.
You have to allow yourself to slow down to watch this; no five second cuts here just awesome scenery and long looks but also a very funny script which shows people are the same the World over. Catch it if it comes your way.
