What can you say about the latest in the long, long line of

Dan Brown/Tom Hanks movies where the intrepid, and slightly dull, Professor Langdon decodes riddles and symbols that most 10 year old would be able to do in play time? They all probably had a lovely time filming in such wonderful locations such as Florence and Istanbul where all the action takes place but for the audience it is just all such a tiresome mess. Dan Brown novels used to be interesting once upon a time but these days their lustre has well and truly dulled and they all seem to be working on the law of diminishing returns. For all the money that is being poured into these films, and it's quite obvious that a lot has been spent, the one place they don't seem to be spending

Mia Hansen Løve (Eden) and Isabelle Huppert (Golden Globe winner for Elle), come together to craft one of the most intriguing French films of the year.

Winner of the Best Director Award at the 2016 Berlin Film Festival, Løve has crafted a subtle and intimate drama about Nathalie (Huppert) a philosophy teacher, who suddenly finds herself alone and socially isolated. Nathalie must draw on the reserves of strength she has accumulated over years of contemplation to deal with the existential crises of a life caught in sudden change.

With enormous emotional clarity, Huppert crafts a performance of measured brilliance, one of her best, which gives Things To Come a cumulative power, and makes it gently and subtly absorbing.

Things to Come screens in Garter Lane Arts Centre on Sunday, Feb 5th at 7.30pm. Booking 051-855038 &

Letters to the Editor


    The Long Goodbye!Political obituaries are usually written after the body has taken it's last breath. However, with Taoiseach Enda Kenny it seems that his political career was just about breathing long before his colleagues had him dead and buried. Although no one, least of all the Taoiseach himself, has come and said it yet, Enda Kenny's premiership ended last week with a truly awful performance in the Dáil where some members of the Opposition were calling for his head while his own party seemed to be won …
