Lancs CCC return - In the House/Dans la Maison
With two matches still to play, Lancashire County Cricket Club have won Division Two and next season return to Division One. (HOORAY)
Yesterday, England won the fourth ODI, well done lads, to level the series at 1 - 1.
Pocklington, East Yorkshire.
Film of the week - the poster above. "Dans La Maison" or "In The House", a French film directed with great aplomb and humour by Francois Ozon. It stars Fabrice Luchini as a 50 year old literature teacher and Kristen Scott Thomas as his wife who works in a gallery. Both are disillusioned with their lot and their colleagues, until one of Luchini's pupils submits a very good essay about his friend's house, the house of the title. Luchini was very good and this was the best performance from Scott Thomas that I have seen for some time. Philip French in "The Observer" very aptly called the film a teasing comedy. I thoroughly enjoyed it and whilst I did not laugh aloud I was very engrossed. One of the best French films I have seen for some time. If you are a fan of modern French film, I recommend this to you.
