Александр. Невская битва (2008).

Rimsky-Korsakov: Scheherazade - op.35

ORSON WELLES~THE STRANGER

'Каменный цветок' (1946) [The Stone Flower]

SHAME (Skammen) ~Ingmar Bergman) 1968

The story follows two musicians, who, as a result of civil war, have moved away from society to a farm on a rural island. They are apolitical and indifferent to the war. As the film opens, Jan has had a dream: "I dreamed we were back in the orchestra, sitting side by side, rehearsing the 4th Brandenburg Concerto, the slow movement, and that everything we have now we had behind us. We only remembered it like a nightmare. I woke up crying. I started to cry when we were playing." Although they are in love, Jan (Sydow) is very sensitive and cries frequently, irritating his wife, Eva (Ullmann). When their farmhouse is the site of a siege wherein Jan and Eva treat the injuries of both sides' men, the two are rounded up by the invading force, interrogated and only spared when Eva provides sexual favors to the commanding officer, Colonel Jacobi. An investigation into Jacobi's corruption intensifies the frustrations and tensions between Jan and Eva, who sink further into depression as they attempt to flee.

As the film closes, Eva has had a dream: she walks a beautiful city street, until planes come and set fire to the city and its rose bushes. Jan and Eva walk their daughter to watch the rose petals burn in the water, "And I knew there was something I should remember. Something one of us had said, but which I had forgotten. I started to cry as I remembered."

Bonhams to sell last Keats handrwritten poem in finest ever poetry sale

LONDON.- The last known handwritten poem by John Keats in private hands is one of the star items in the sale of the Roy Davids Collection III: Poetry: Poetical Manuscripts and Portraits of Poets which will be held in two parts on 10th April and 8 May 2013 at Bonhams, 101 New Bond Street. The sale is the fruit of 40 years of collecting by the poet and scholar Roy Davids and is the finest collection of poetry ever to come to auction. In Mr David's own words, "it would now be impossible for the present collection to be even approximately replicated.' The Keats manuscript is from the draft of his well known early poem, 'I stood tiptoe on a little hill,' and consists of 33 lines from the work scribbled on both front and back showing how the poet revised his thoughts as he wrote. This is the only poetical manuscript by Keats now ever likely to be available to collectors and it is estimated at £40,000-45,000. The e
