Travel to Zagreb
"Let's start with a look at a European capital that's often overlooked by the beach crowd who enjoy Croatia's crystal clear coastline. But miss out on the scene in its capital city. It has a distinctively modern take on old world charm and it's just a few hours inland. To tell us about saga we're joined now by local guide Darya goateed. She's joined by Ben Curtis who writes about the Balkan regions elaborate history and thinks that Croatia's best period may be now Darya in Ben Welcome my pleasure. Same. Thank you for having. US Doria. You're from Zagreb your guide in Zagreb, a lot of Americans no Dubrovnik. Venice and a lot of Americans know the Anna Zagreb is right there in the middle. What should we know about Zagreb? Nanna. Saga is I would say the mix of. All these big capitals around and all these much better known cities around from historical perspective It was influenced by different cities and countries. So we have a little bit of all of that. What's an example? How is it a little bit of? How is it a little bit of Italy says it a little bit of the Slavic World So? obas part of the hops Burke monarchy later austro-hungary for few hundred. Years. And then architecture in town is very much what we would call out through nor Central European. So the mixture of Hungarian hungarian-austrian. We don't have much Dubrovnik textures that. Is Zog. Is completely different about the cuisine that scene is also very influenced by Austria but not only that we do eat struggles and. A lot of meat and potatoes and then on the other hand we also eat. A lot of Pasta beat some. We are very sensitive on coughing, and then we also have the Turkish influence because arguable also for few centuries, just about forty, five, fifty miles Sir north from the Ottoman Empire boarder okay. It's a crossroads release across through the s the Ben Curtis here in American who has a fascination and a deep interest in this part of Europe how would you say Zagreb is unique Zagreb is unique for being this gem of a central European capital. So everybody can measure saying they know Budapest, Vienna, they know Prague, but here's this. Gym of a historical city that hardly any American visits right and even though Zagreb stars rising on the Tourism Front these days but you can go there and it's not gonna be jammed with busloads of tourists from all over the place you're not gonNA hear a lot of other North American accents and you're going to be able to experience the city where the fabric of locals you're going to be sitting in a cafe with mostly other people from Zagreb, and that's great and it's hard to find that in Dubrovnik are in Vienna these days a year. Exactly. So if you had two nights in in one Danes, is there enough to keep you busy. Yeah. For sure I think, what would you do if you're gonNA show me around for a day the it's a great kind of one day stop if you're coming in and out for some of the coast. So Zagreb surprisingly has some of I think are the best museums of its kind in Europe now they're quirky right? You don't. Go desire grab for the Louvre or something like that. But you go to Zagreb for these unusual small museums like the Museum of naive art, which is great sort of not formally trained perhaps painters but really characteristic art with peasant themes. The famous one which is kind of made headlines around the world is a museum of broken relationships which is filled with these stories of couples who have broken up the objects that they have Meant something to them and they've given it this museum and so it's just a really interesting kind of poignant sometimes hilarious trip through people's relationships. So when we think of this naive art, I love this idea because you go to most art galleries in Europe Bennett, the opposite of naive arted this refined fully embraced high-society art but naive art is by definition just unschooled hasn't Sir Working People that just had a passion for painting. Exactly but are often very, very talented even if they didn't train at the academy or something like that but they're expressing the lives and cultures and artistic visions of people from the rural areas and it's genius really an undiscovered genius that happen to come out of the farm community or something absolutely. I love that museum by the way that that's really one of the unique things in Europe and it is in the capital of Croatia Zagreb.

You know, our motto is the game never stops does the way we connect you with Nick and Sam goes by Nico Naysmith founded the Venice Basketball League, but he's also an artist who grew up outside Paris. His twin passions found a home at the end of a welding tour. Definitely wielded by fellow artist and friend Lori Powers. Together they created what they call survival hoops we built about 100 of them and we were together every day. Making hopes who will go right in here? They're all made from reclaimed items, chairs, shoes, even car bumpers. You just see a hope in just about everything I see hope in everything. You could put a few things on the ground there, and I could just immediately make a rope out of it. They've hung them in back alleys all over Vince. Played him, too. But this is their real hoop dream. An old school bus turned into a rolling corner. It was built to bring Venna streetball the streets outside vents.

"venice" Discussed on Monocle 24: Section D
"Venice is famous for being built own waterways and really the quickest and easiest and most spectacular way of getting around here is by boat or va- Podesta. Well the PARETO has been safely negotiated and I'm now on the island of Sand Georgia looking at row the enviable views across the water at Saint Mark's Square. Now, I'm here on this island took David Landau. He's the founder of Venice Glass Week, and he's been setting up his exhibition looking at American studio glass, those Americans travelling to Modano and Venice to learn from the glass artisan martyrs why set up defense plus we it was obviously missing. The place where glass had been made for one thousand years there wasn't a festival to celebrate the event and the after thousand years of not doing it I thought why don't we do it? So I did suggest a few people that we should start and all institutions in town should get together to it should be the initiative for one of them and we got around the table and amazingly enough. Normally if you go around the table in Venice, you start fighting in three minutes later people start walking out of the room saying I'm not going to take this and here the was. So simple and unthreatening that everyone said yeah yeah they good idea. Let's do it. I. Remember Meeting on Doom naturally where we were discussing should we have Venice class? This year not is probably to place in April beginning of May and should we or should we not I think we should concentrate and so on. Everybody was saying no, it's too dangerous. It's not going to work and I said it's crucial that we should have the Vince class week. It is crucial to show that Venice is alive and well that Miranda's alive world classes being made here and we can celebrate it altogether. Next stop by boat of course, Modano that island inexorably linked to the craft of glassblowing packed with furnaces fitting. Then that London based in Italian run bespoke lighting company. WanNa glass should hold an exhibition at Ab Four Point Zero Gallery on the island pitching Venice Glass in works from the likes of Tom Dixon, Ross Love Grove, and John Paulson during a cocktail event markets launch found him would it to your more Sato? Told me about how the idea for the London Venice Spirit? Of Resurgent Show was born was Easter and joking with Russell over over the phone and what's up Italy was in lockdown really tight lot. Now, England I think it was a look down to and that was Ross we were joking about the Easter of resurrection and so was really something that joking. But serious they say you know Venice and Morano because Morano was completely dead need a kind of selection. So we play with the word resurrection seemed to be to religious and maybe A. Little, bit. Blessed Famer, and then we decided to call resurgence I, WanNa bring in Christian your son and Co founder who is standing next to us here oversee you're both based in London. I wanted to talk about this idea of working with Venice working with people and Modano this idea of resilience and moving forward because let's face it in the UK as well. But especially here perhaps, but some of the artisans on this island of Venice it's been tough. So important is it To sort of show that this industry is getting back on its feet and show the amazing things that the people here are capable of doing I think he was one of the most important part of the project to show the fact that Marana was clearly facing some tough times and we're going through challenging moments as everybody but they never lost faith in coming back and being as active as they could and I was very good occasion to in. September the the various glass? Week. Tough Times perhaps but that hasn't stopped Venice class week from trying to reach a wider audience this year, a finest boat floating around Venice's waterways, showing members of the public how gloss is made. My Name is Roberto Bill me owner and glass master of Marana Glass. We're here today at Venice class weaker. We are doing a demonstration on the floating furnace and today we're blowing Lhasa in the middle of the Grand Canal in front of Lonzo Franchetti right underneath academia. Bridge. So of a furnace, we have today's Furnace, but it still reaches a temperature of one. Thousand one hundred degrees, Celsius. So that's about two thousand three hundred Fahrenheit to melt glass. It holds a inside of it around fifty kilos of molten glass and we gather of glass from a furnace with steel pipes. We preheat the tip of steel pipes and we dip it into a molten glass the. Hot, glass sticks to hard metal and we are able to gather it up sort of as if it was honey, we turn the pipe inva- glass and we we gather it up and we take it out of a furnace and when it's cold enough we go for another layer until we have enough material to work and then we start shaving apiece I really hope that in future young people from Italy and from abroad, get interested in glass art and abroad versus a lot of places where a person can learn how to work and blow blast but Merano's is absolutely. The place where the most skill is still held by the artisans and I. Think would be the best place for young people to learn It's difficult because it's It's hard for companies in Italy, to to run their business especially something expensive as as glass the costs of running a glass factory are insane. So we hope that the European Union will keep an eye out an eye out for us and help us with some subsidies to both. Help us go back to what Raul used to be and to preserve a tradition of glassblowing, misinterpreted, fessing down to more young people. Cheaper gloss may exist elsewhere but clearly no place the traditions of Venice. Hopefully. It's gloss week resilient and determined despite all the obstacles were continued to sow the seeds for future. Generations. For Monaco in Venice I'm at stock.

A film, directed by Amanda McBain and Jesse Moss, focuses on the Texas Boys state event that took place in June 2018. We see the roughly 1200 participants arriving in Austin. Where they are randomly divided into two political parties, The federalists and the Nationalists. Those names carry no agenda. It's up to both parties to hammer out a platform, choose their leaders and then run against each other in a week long election campaign. McBain and Moss throw us into this mark government exercise without much preamble or explanation of the rules of the game. Like politics itself, be action can be a little confusing. Unlike politics, it's never boring, mainly because the movie wisely focuses on a select few participants. Either. The filmmakers were extremely lucky and their choice of subjects or they shot so much footage that they were able to isolate the most compelling personalities. In any event, the four young men we spend the most time with all in that playing key roles in the experiments, nerve wracking outcome. Most ambitious of the bunch is Ben, the Federalists Party chair who's willing to do anything to win votes, including smearing the Nationalists on Social media. Venice. Politically conservative. He has a Ronald Reagan action figure to prove it. And he despises what he sees as the liberal tendency to divide people along lines of race, gender and disability. Then speaks from some personal perspective. He lost both his legs to meningitis when he was three. Care of the Nationalist Party hails from the opposite end of the political spectrum. Progressive black teenager originally from Chicago. Renee knows he stands out in this mostly white, conservative Texas field. He also stands out on merit. He has a seasoned politicians command of rhetoric and can deftly out argue any opponent. It is also capable of calling for party unity, as he does in an early speech. My grandmother told me a few things you have to have faith.

He saw an opportunity for retaliation he wanted. To beat them up like the other kids had done to his own brother but Roger wouldn't have it instead ten year old roger approached the girl with glasses and asked what she was doing with the Tadpoles. Kathy corrected him. She was catching salamanders. Roger enjoyed the girls spunk but his brother pulled him away he and Cathy waved goodbye hoping to see each other again. Ultimately however, the budding friendship was cut short when just four days later, the holder suddenly moved to California but Kathy wouldn't forget Roger Holder and their argument over Amphibians. In. The latter years of her childhood Kathy, watched her parents relationship completely deteriorate by the time she turned ten her father's musical ambitions had finally gotten the better of him.

Meanwhile, Kathy had no choice but to keep the household running and look after her three younger siblings before we continue with Kathy, psychology please note that I'm not a licenced psychiatrist or psychologist, but I have done a lot of research for the show. According to sociologist Monica Kirkpatrick Johnson when kids are forced to take on serious responsibility, they view themselves as older than they are. This is called subjective age and can lead adolescence to believe their maturity levels exceed those of their peers as Kathy's mom took on a full time secretarial job kathy nature her brothers were fed clothed and always ready to go to school on time in many ways, she became the second parent in the home. If, the child chooses to take on additional burdens that will likely manifest into positive characteristics down the line but negative effects may emerge when a child is forced into roles that demand them to perform as though they're older than they are Kathy may have appeared wise beyond her years but really she was merely mimicking adult behaviors. This type of pseudo maturity May. Increase. The likelihood of problems like substance abuse and increased sexual activity in adolescence for Awhile Kathy showed no signs of any behavioral issues she continued to care for her younger brothers as she always had an she applied that same level of dedication to her studies taking on many extracurriculars when she started high school among them were choir, Latin club track and community service. But by sixteen something changed with her brothers now, older county didn't feel so obligated to spend her time caring for them more than that acting like an adult for so long had taken its toll on Kathy, who still repressed the pain and anger from her parents separation. Unable to escape her resentment she rebelled she quit the track team dropped out of choir and stopped volunteering. Kathy dumped her boyfriend for a twenty something beach bomb every attempt her mom may discipline Cathy was met with verbal sparring. When eighteen year old Kathy graduated high school in June of Nineteen sixty-nine, her prospects looked bleak while others left with career goals and college plans Kathy kept dating and partying. So for the next two years, Kathy bounced from one random gig to another unable to hold anything down at first it was just laziness. Eventually, her indiscretions escalated while working at a drugstore she stole amphetamines for her friends when she was caught and subsequently fired it didn't seem to bother her in the slightest to make ends meet.

"The professor Ross. Let's acknowledge that the very existence of Venice shows repeatedly the triumph of human engineering. Right I mean this is a city that was first when it was built it was built on the water using in many millions of wooden piles and kind of an an a an act of audacity. I would say thousand years ago that that that the Venetian said we. We can do this and they did it. And then we've had subsequent you know in the centuries following other large-scale engineering projects to help save Venice. Sylvia had mentioned earlier here that rivers have been diverted out of the lagoon so that it doesn't those rivers don't poor You know all sorts of contaminants and chemicals into the lagoon so the idea idea. That engineering can save Venice. Deeply embedded into the city's history. I want to acknowledge that but given the multiple all factors right now most specifically climate change that are acting on on Venice here. Do you still think A flood barrier solution is the right one. I believe it is. I think the flood barrier willing fact work of for a significant amount of time. We have talked knowledge that if syllable rise continuous and this is not just strictly limited to that radic it. It will be a concern. All across the world is so events were able to protect the lagoon and he'll it'll be appointed out. He's not just Venice appropriately for several decades of considerable length. There's time to think of solutions. But at that point if the worst happens Let's face it Manhattan of South Florida New Orlands We got problems all over the world To deal with with that condition. There's no doubt about that. And that's why this is. So vitally important. The question then becomes is ten billion euros for some of flood barriers that might by Venice a couple of decades cades. Is that the best and smartest use of those ten billion euros to achieve the longest term protection for the city every coastal city. You just mentioned has to have Bob do that. Same cost benefit analysis. Are there other ways to spend ten billion euros to protect Venice for a longer period of time. In my opinion I don't have have any other solution that will guarantee a safe and banished forever. If you if that's what you're implying this solution that would work. And as you stated earlier in fact.

"Best intentions. You want to keep up with the impeachment hearings but maybe you have a job. There will be hours of testimony from witnesses in impeachment impeachment inquiry this week and the NPR politics podcast will be there every afternoon to keep you up to date on all the key moments. Listen daily this is point. I'm making a trucker bardy. Were talking this hour about historic flooding in Venice about climate change and about saving one of the world's most beloved love cities I'm joined today by Sylvia Pohjola. She's with us from Rome. She's senior European correspondent for NPR. Toto Berga Morosi also joins. He's in Venice. He's director of the Venetian Heritage Foundation which restores buildings and artworks in Venice. and Mr Bergamo. Rosie Lemme ask you. You were talking about how there had been some efforts in years past sort of isolate parts of Saint Mark's basilica from water to keep the water out but of course water fines away. Hey especially as it rises and rises. I just wonder are there. Efforts or thinking Underway that perhaps regarding San Marco specifically we do parts of it needs to be moved. I mean can this building be saved in the long run. Well you know the problem is you. Can't you can't take some mark. Mazzetti can put some other places. I mean it would never happen and you cannot raise the level of the floor because all Jackie tetreault design would change. And and so. It's not it's not really policy but I think we have to continue to work in this way but just you know We have to make that that that project finish. I mean the very very You know everybody talk about this molded take this this Watergate there and at CDC. Before I mean it's it's ninety percent of the work has been done in too many years and a lot of money these appeared and it was very addictive between different political tarts but in any case we have to be pragmatic Mikic and the war. Problematic is not something that we use a lot in my country unfortunately So we have to be matic and just finish that because they spent already seven medians of seven billions sorry billions of euro on the project and And there is like I plan to finish every year and a half so I hope that now would that kind of be catastrophe than have last week they who they can and they could accelerate and and and and this project earlier just to prevent any other. You know. We can't have another floss like this. And I'm I'm I was born. Nineteen sixty seven so the big flood of ninety sixty six. You know when I grow up I always heard about the floods of sixty six and yet fact and the damage and how bad it was. But I mean it's unbelievable that after fifty three years. We're still doc with the same. Well Silvia let me turn back to you here because toto mentioned that perhaps this latest historic flooding might kick in a sense ends of pragmatism to get those dams fixed. I mean based on folks that you've spoken to in the past week or so. Is that sense of urgency now amongst the the Italian political bureaucracy. Well you know the project they just As total just said that their plan they have said that they will have it completed by by the end of two thousand twenty one. That's you know two years from now which is You know a long time. The other question people are raising it was pro it was projected that the the design was done. Something like At the end of the nineties early two thousands and it's not clear whether they did at that time time you know. I don't know what the predictions were of rising sea levels at the time. Many people are worried that it's going to be they're not going to be sufficient to to really we keep the tides Away the other issue is that environmentalists are very worried that even once it's functioning the floodgates will have to be open a lot of the time time which means that the lagoon gets cut off from the from the ocean from the and that would alter the whole the whole ecosystem that has been really building building vanderbilt and nurtured by by human beings for free. You know fifteen hundred years. It's a marvel of this this combination of human human in nature working together the video Venetian lagoon. which is a huge lagoon and It's a very delicate ecosystem ecosystem. And there's this concern that even wants if they do function which nobody is really sure that they will. I'm sorry about my skepticism. But I think I'm reflecting the the sense of most Venetians. I heard only skepticism. I didn't hear much enthusiasm on the part of anybody. They're so tired and resentful towards also politicians. And what they've been hearing for so long so it's It's not clear that even once if they do work you know what impact it will have on the lagoon on the ecosystem. There's there's really it's begun on their well Toto Bergamo Rosie one last question for you as as a Venetian you know better than any of us around the rest of the world that I mean. The one of the painful ironies here is that Venice is water. Water is Venice. This is a city. That's since it's founding on on those many many millions of piles at all. Those buildings sit on has been intricately bound to water and yet here it is water that is spelling the overall perhaps the overall doom for Venice I mean. Do you think that let me just ask. You can be saved in the long run. Well if we use like this I don't think so also because I mean it's this is why I mean. Sometimes because catastrophe can provoke something at the end something good I mean reaction So and my my concern is not about only about the big flats than we have a few days ago. But it's the way then the city is run and they not only under the last administration of our our little Local Donald Trump. Then we have a mayor of Venice but that is not only about that. It's more about years I I mean it's years of neglect that Position I mean the people. They don't decide they don't then it's still runs like nineteen seventy when we were like when we have other time maximum six or seven medium by year of tourists this year we had thirty meeting even presence and with still have the same kind of a of a of organization. So it's not you know. Van It if they don't take series series important from the governmental realm decision about how this should be run It's GonNa be like that. CD of these and they were just for cheap tourist and of course wilder everywhere and this is something like make make me read. It suffered so much because you know I dedicate my life to try to save the most beautiful building of the museum. The Churches Collection Make Exhibition. It'd be some big books. S- caught our shape and the result is that at the end. Everybody wants to use. Then it's all of everybody just to make their own little money and there is no big vision about what is going to be in twenty years. If there's a Venice in twenty years yeah well total Burgum Alrosa Director of the Venetian Heritage Foundation which resort restores and preserves artworks in Venice joining us from Venice. Italy today thank you so much for being with us. Thank you okay. So let's dig in a lot deeper into what we've talked about already this hour and that is that question of of Floodwater protection and this massive engineering project. that is hoping to be the savior of the city of Venice so joining us now now for more on that as Rafael brass he's with us from Atlanta Georgia. He's professor in the School of Civil and environmental engineering and at the School of Earth and atmospheric sciences at Georgia Tech. He also worked on the flood barrier project in Venice from nineteen ninety. Five to two thousand thirteen working with the consortium. That's developing the flood ludd barrier project. He headed a group of experts overseeing the barriers development professor bras. Welcome to point. Thank you very much pleasure so I smelled like to actually just sort of give people much more detailed sense as to what we're talking about when we're talking about these submersible flood barriers right so so take us to the those three inlets On the edge of the Venetian lagoon. Where the water? From the Adriatic Sea flushes in and out every day. Those are the sites it's where these mosaic dams are being built. Is that right. That is correct With the idea is to protect the Laguna Venison general not just Vannes although although that certainly the main subject it's a fifty kilometer thirty kilometer fifty kilometer long Lagoon Buddy history. Well defined inlets if you can separate those. Let's see from the lagoon. During periods of flooding then We would have protection of the loan and the the the design of the mosaic barriers themselves. Right they they're supposed. They're designed to sit underwater flat right during regular title events So that water can come in and out of the lagoon and then when a high tide or a particularly high tide is predicted. Those bears are supposed store rise up and close off the lagoon. Is that right. That is correct they. They were designed to effectively seat on the water and going going to operation only when needed and the reason for that is to allow Traffic in and out of the inlets and also so for over for aesthetic reasons. I think that there was a requirement or regionally for designs. That would be US less intrusive as it's possible And Flood Berries like this. Are we've seen in other places. I mean the Thames Barrier in London is a is a good example. It stays open. Most of the times of the Thames River can flow into the north. See but it can close To protect London win with unusually high tide events There so it's not it's not a And out of the ordinary idea here but why has it taken so long to to construct a mosaic beer. You heard Sylvia report that it's not done yet. It might be done in two years but it's been a long time. What's the hold up? Well that's unfortunate done. I'm not sure I know all answers both As you know the barrier earlier while so originally intended to take on the order between eight and ten years to build if I recall correctly our targeted date that point and Wesson died two thousand twelve two thousand eleven two thousand. Twelve delays Hata Care Oh largely because of financing financing issues since then There were corruption Issues that arose for political corruption corruption in the in in the unit that was doing it. that tool sort of action so but unfortunately those actions seem to have implied the the stopping of the the effort to finish the barriers. Were which were largely finish By the twentieth thirteen Sylvia. Do you have of a d ever thought on that. I mean does. It seem still kind of optimistic that the the Italians might finish this project on the time. They've stated well. It is an Italian problem. Generally generally it's not just in Venice that Then delays and again usually mostly due to corruption and not not not no more than anything else but no I mean I have no idea I mean they say another two years Adler brings it to eighteen years if it is completed by the end uh-huh and who knows how much more money it's true they've been there's also in Italy when there's changes of political governments instead of having sort of continuity when one government makes certain decision the the next government government comes in and starts blocking it making COMP COMP- complications money is suspended so there's that it certainly that is also one reason for delay away but there's also tremendous suspicion of where all summit all this money has gone and why it is the psalms have increased the cost of increased so much over this period And who will see its video. Mo- you know. Yesterday I was. I visited the island of police phillies three now which is one of the barrier island. There's Lido and the three inlets are at the top of leader. The bottom of Lido and then there's police three to kill John the mainland on. And there's a very thin very thin strips of Barrier Islands Lido and Palestine piteously. The last week suffered tremendous damage. It's mainly its inhabitants are mostly fishermen and I went to the Along the port there and it's just like a row of Electrical appliances refrigerators washing machines absolutely destroyed by the waters. They all were all the homes were flooded. The fishermen have this initiatives unique thing that they have in Venice Lagoon. They have these you see when you go in by boat you'll see often these wooden platforms that you're never really sure that she'll like little sheds and what they are. Are there storage areas for fishermen where they keep their nets and their whatever their equipments in tools and one fisherman. Several fishermen told me there's we're totally destroyed. One was like two hundred square meters shed. He lost everything. All the fishermen have lost all their all their their nets everything because the combination also what happened last week was the combination of an extremely high tide. Plus a very very strong wind. Two wins the northern border wind coming from the north and the sheer shirow. Coming from the south they sort of it was literally everybody calls. It was a perfect storm. Mom well the professor Ross. Let's acknowledge that the very existence of Venice shows repeatedly the triumph of human engineering. Right I mean this is a city that was first when it was built it was built on the water using in many millions of wooden piles and kind of an an a an act of.

Do you think that's i coming up of <hes> of the film well. I'm just gonna go right in here and say this is a film. It's really easy to make fun of. I mean i happen to the get slightly. Aware of the fact that it can can present is quite silly when you've got mannered fifteenth century language but i think that it succeeds on a lot of levels i loved it. The castle young i read something <hes> where david michel said had you know people died really young in medieval times we imagine kings is being these kind of older stately men but really king henry the fifth died. He was like thirty five or something. I think so you know when you're looking at these guys. They are just like these young impulsive guys in charge of these vast armies and the other thing that i love about it is how tactile it is. I think the production design the costumes it looks kind of naturalistic in dirty and real and the set piece of the film is the battle of austrian court art and i think that's probably one of my favorite parts like it's the narrative kind of hinges on it kind of builds up to it and it's all kind of set in this muddy field. It's been rainy night and the english are really outnumbered by the dolphins army and they manage to use the mud to their tactical advantage. Two men are grappling appling on the ground and you can't really tell them apart or see anything aside from people drowning in and bleeding in it and it's just got this really awful tactile feel to it. I was watching this in <hes> ever thinking back to the days of my history degree and studying schinkel and the primary sources and talking about all the <hes> the battle tactics six there. I actually think i wrote an essay on long. Bows versus the french crossbows and wide wide along those were so much better because she had the range it kind of goes into some of that those battle tactic details but for me i gotta say i thought shallow maywood was a bit of a bust as a regent. His performance just didn't work. It felt very kind of showy and maybe he was trying a little bit too hard. Maybe so focused too heavily on maintaining his slightly pushing english accent and i totally get you with the aesthetic side and i think the battle scene is interesting and certainly that kind of mass huddle they get into where it's just this of overhead overhead shot worries where the frame is completely filled with bodies for yeah. It just takes a long time to get there and and and a lot of going through this off historical epic cliche ashamed as well such as the big battle speech and the treacherous side players and the the arguments against the evil cleric and it's. I think that's the thing that i didn't do it for me. I wish i had seen the film that robert pattinson was in or thought he was in rather than the film the timothy shallan may he was in which is the film that david michaud does tried to make which is a question of po faced serious historical battle film. I think you were saying yesterday. That use may be a bit more humor in the whole thing yeah. I think there are moments. There's sort of part where the cleric that you mentioned is talking at length about some quite dull political matter and chaumet cuts him off. I can't remember what the line is. It cuts him off and quite a contemporary way as if to say i'm bored and kind of in a way sort of non wink to the audience because going through the procedural roll internal politics of the court is a little bit dull and definitely the film picks up momentum secondhand sure but yeah in terms of humor also i mean the patents in performance is almost camp..

"There's one sequence with a very high think obscure reference to planet the apes which we let's not talk about but there is an overall sense in the film that he's collecting together. These very subtle name checks to a law of classic sci fi films as you say two thousand and one and <hes> solarz tucholsky film would be another one. I thought that his whole gambit about looking at the moon in in the near future and you know assuming that capitalism will very much follow us into outer space as we call it is and build of moon becoming like disneyworld and they're being tourist attractions fractions and they're being all sorts of corporate fast food chains. I that was a very canny decision on his part and one of my favorite that's i think and how did you find find brad pitt because i mean he is on a bit of a roll this year i mean people are loving him on the back of his cliff booth in tarantino's once upon a time in hollywood ali would how does this compare got it so different but it just shows his range as an actor and <hes> anybody that has been sleeping on brad pitt for whatever reason shouldn't be anymore anymore but it definitely shows that he has the ability to be kind of a great deadpan comic actor as well as a proper leading man in an incredibly serious role like it's very hard even think of a joke in astra. Can you think of one. I can't think of a joke. No there are some little ironies in there. I think some of the references are a bit cheeky cheeky. Be no no. There's definitely no big laughs in the cinema as there has been in many of the other films we've seen i'm not a massive james gray fan i mean i i haven't really like any of his films and even though he does have quite an avid following amongst sniffles and film dudes and stuff like that and i have to say i kind of was coming to the film with trepidation thinking oh god is this gonna be another thing that i loved the idea of it and the prospect of it but the reality is is kind of boring and indulgent and fair plates have james gray. He has the ambition he has immense ambition and he has this vision vision for everything he makes. It doesn't connect with me often but this time absolutely did and i think it's a really moving and emotional oceano and emotive film helped by the school by max richter as well. Everything works in a really nice visual emotional union. I i saw and <hes> yeah brad pitt's performance where he is this kind of steely eyed guy who just lets these tears roll occasionally. It really got to me. Do you think it's too much of recon of film. No i mean i'm here for brad. Pitt's manley tears absolutely and i think he's fantastic..

"The actors was one of the things i was looking forward to and was heavily kind of <hes>. I was not as pointed. I mean adam driver is now now made a bit of a cerebral store for himself as the kind of almost indie darling he e- just taking off working with all these great modern tours and does great work with most of the time i i would say this not being an exception. I thought it was really interesting to see scarlett johansson in a film like this because i've almost almost come to expect her now doing big hollywood scifi movies like ghost in the shell or doing her thing. How did you feel about seeing scar drawback in a meaty dramatic role. It was nice to see her. Be a human kind of come down to earth. You know wash your face 'cause she's been crying in in her eyes are all puffy and she's perfectly capable so it's a shame that she hasn't really had any of those roles recently. If i had a complaint about the film i guess i would say that in the latter are half the focus does shift slightly more to adam driver's perspective in the marriage and i'd like to have a little bit more from her from her point of view to add some plot details. It's more of a setup because it doesn't really have a plot in the traditional sense. There's this high rolling new york couple. He's a theater director. She is his kind of lead actress and they have a young son and it transpired that she has ambitions elsewhere and wants to work in tv and wants to direct herself but he sees her as just part of his machine and his theater company and <hes> some animosity that has arisen from that and <hes> it splits the family out there originally based in new york this'll american seat of theater and <hes> scarlett johansson character then move to l._a..

"Off. I think about her not just her actually but in fact the way she's filmed as well he was quite male gaze which seems to be trying to make up for a certain lack of soul trina that she has yeah and i think seabrook's quite sultry and i don't really get that from kristen stewart. I know that sounds quite harsh but i kind of agree. There is a lot of shots of her looking being slightly anguished wearing a very very very low cut see through negligee. Maybe that was how seeburg dressed in private but the camera does linger on it for a very long time just to add it into the context of the festival is the first film we've seen i believe is played out of competition and and i think generally a rule films that might receive a little bit harsh treatment from the press gallery of moved out of the main competition and into out-of-competition slots just to sort of almost prepares you for the type of film. You're gonna see it's it's more mainstream. It's not vying for any big big prize so it's a different type of launch pad. Do you think it was worth. Screening is in how competition film yeah i mean i think it had its merit. Certainly i think i feel like her. Story is not widely known in the should listen to like you must remember this podcast or you're really into hollywood history and the idea that she was really being punished <unk> by this right-wing moralistic force in the f._b._i. At a time when there's so much backlash against youth culture and counterculture in sexual revolution so much of it seems to be wrapped up in like they're seeing her a slot. They're seeing her as somebody. That's cheated on her husband. Had you know interracial relationship <hes> and i think that some of the ideas around that were interesting to say but the fact that it tries to kind of habits cake and eat it by doing that and and being really male gaze with her bodies eh trade off. Let's wiscon- minds back if we are able to to hold twenty four hours now of movies so back to yesterday so that that would have been the first day of the festival that we have been here for they really decided to kick things off in high style with two massive films you have james gray's ad astra which is his kind of very opulent slightly experimental sifi opus starring brad pitt and you also have no bound backs marriage story which is his very very delicate but funny and tragic dissection of marriage but also study of the differences between los angeles and new york. Let's kick things off with marriage story. What were your thoughts. I think it might have been one of my films. The year i think it's kind of major from him and adam driver and scott hanson are incredible credible enact the understanding of intimate relationships and this kind of tenderness between them even unexpected moments even when things become increasingly brutal brutal in terms of their divorce. I think really kind of hits a nerve and i think it's really beautiful sad funny phil that's funny because when we were speaking beforehand and you could read about the subject matter your anticipation was maybe a little bit less than the actual results we of seeing the film what what was it that was was making it not seem like that kind of tasty prospect for you a few things i think i've always liked bomba but never unreservedly loved in a like a a super passionate way partly because i are worried that it would be you know two hours slog about miserable relationship. I should have known better with bomba because he he's always pretty light fingered in his approach and <hes> so much incidental humor that even saddest moments. You're there's a hopefulness i think to the film but so partly it was him partly it was the in fact that was about a marriage falling apart certainly not for the actors..

"Called Benedict Evans, and what he was saying was that with most of my detect companies historically that have had dominance and lost it. They didn't really lose it because they got attacked head on allow room by lost it because they became irrelevant ally. Venice Venice was a major shipping port, but basically people found alternative shipping routes and all of a sudden Venice was no longer really relevant in the world. It didn't matter anymore. And that's that was his comparison with a lot of the major tech companies, the IBM the Microsoft's these kind of big companies that were the dominant players and now probably a lot less, and it's an interesting analogy. I think when we talk about the spa business because I don't see anybody taking the spa business head on. But I do see us becoming more and more irrelevant. And I say that based on the numbers based on the amount of guests that we're getting through our doors. So I think as we look at the. Business. We need to think more about I think many people in the spa business. I waiting for a conflict there saying we'll nobody's fighting head on. So therefore, we're k-. But I think we need to be mindful that becoming relevant is just as dangerous. It's a more slow and painful death, perhaps maybe not even painful, maybe just slow, but it still potentially a death nonetheless. So I think we need to be doing all that we possibly can to stay relevant in a changing world. Because if you don't the world will change around you, and they'll just find another route must like they did with Venice just thought what do you think living?
