Thanks for the birthday cake Dumpy and the wishes too Nahima. If the link above works, the talkback schedule is on there. I am guessing that all or most that are listed for the first talkback will be present for the remaining dates. According to the lady i spoke with at Ticketmaster AR is likely to be there on all of the talkback nights.

Thanks Dorothea for your account, it was very kind of both Susan and you to share that experience with us.

Hey guys, I think I've found a new picture from AR as 'Richis'!
Well not exactly as 'Richis' but as himself wearing 'Richis' wardrobe.
Click here, hope it'll be really 'new', I've never seen it before.

Happy Birthday, Snapefan!

Thank you for your kind feedback, everyone.

Oh, SnapeFan, there will be a Q&A session for MNiRC in New York at the 24th? I did not find this information on the Internet. Who will be present?

Thanks Carolyn and New Jan for the birthday wishes. Yes my tickets are for the Oct 24th Q&A session. After all the responses from the UK run of MNiRC I really wanted to see the play.I will not lie I am excited that I may get to see AR after the play. I am even more excited to see work that he has taken part in. After all this play is based on the writings and emails of what seems a very talented young lady. For AR to put a play together from those materials just goes to show you that he is more than just an actor. Just like what he had done for The Winter Guest. I am glad to have the chance to see this and if anyone else is planning on going that night let me know and maybe we can meet up before the show.

Wow, Dorothea!  Thank you so very much for sharing your experience with us!  I'm with INTJ--an absolute pleasure to read!   I could picture a lot of what you described, which is probably why I'm sitting here with a great big goofy grin on my face! LOL 

 

So much food for thought--thank you for coming back to post what you remembered.  

It sounds like, for all the wear and tear of his hectic schedule (and all the hoohah surrounding that ), AR was his usual charming, handsome, enigmatic public self.  And how kind of him to go back in to sign more autographs.  I'll never forget when an Italian pal of mine came to NYC to see a favorite actor on stage and get the chance to meet him; we waited at the Stage Door so she could say hello and shake his hand, only to have him grouchily tell her he "didn't do" Stage Door/fan stuff and stomp away as if we'd tried to convert him!  I kind of gaped (I'm not a fan of his anyway LOL), but she looked as if she'd been slapped, poor thing!  We're lucky AR isn't that way!  

 

Thanks for giving more detail on the "worrysome" comment.  It sounds to me as if he is merely coming up against some of the ageism of the film industry and refuses to compromise whatever factors/values influence his choice of scripts.  Good on him!  It might cause more good writers to sit up and take notice of the maturing talent they are all too often letting go to waste. 

 

Congrats on seeing AR in person!  And thanks again!

Happy Birthday, Snapefan.

 

I saw MniRC on its last afternoon here in London.  I have to admit, the reason I went to see it was because of my interest in AR's work, but that wasn't the reason I stood up at the end to applaud.  I have never seen anything so moving on stage in my life (and I'd seen Iain Glenn in The Crucible a few weeks earlier).  The stillness of the audience during Rachel's last email home was was something I'd never experienced before at the theatre.  The emotion was tangible.  It's just brilliant.  And I just wanted to say to Snapefan, enjoy!  I would love the opportunity to see it again.

 

Btw - does anyone know if AR was present at the last performance of MniRC on 21st May 2006?  Is it tradition for the director to be present at the last performance (for the after-show party, perhaps)?  I ask because I saw someone who could have been him applauding at the end but I couldn't see clearly enough.

For those of you who might appreciate it, something more on the Q&A event at BAFTA.
I am really grateful to everyone sharing their experiences here with others, and simply want to give something back here.

The Q&A was the first time Alan met Rose, the autistic woman (who did not seem very autistic – she is "high functioning"). He had made sure he didn´t meet her before. He jumped up when she surprisingly turned up (they had doubted it), and, walking around her, gave her his chair. He also mentioned something like his heart skipping because of finally meeting her. Later he explained that he had not been sure whether to shake her hand.
AR said some highly interesting things during the Q&A; everything the others said was only known to me, so I won´t repeat it.
AR said that at this point in his career he does things only if he can learn something from them. He also mentioned that the script of this film had been the most ready for filming he had ever got.
When a woman said he had a very dry wit and asked him why his roles always were so extremely funny, whether it was not mostly timing, and whether he wrote those extremely funny one liners himself sometimes, he answered that he got the texts, and then he decided whether to do it as it was written, or not. So it seems that in a roundabout way he admitted that he writes some of the text himself at times.
The producer said that his role had not been that well developed without him. (By the way, the author wrote that part for him, and they would not have done the film if he had not done it. – And they wouldn´t have gotten the money then, either.) AR himself made them aware of the stages Alex had to go through to change the way he did. For example, Alan had the idea to let him help with arranging the funeral, which was perfectly logical once he had mentioned it, but no one had thought of. So obviously he influences the scripts somewhat at times.
They also mentioned that Alan had invented the for me most funny scene in the film, where he has the bucket with water and ... – you´ll see it. AR said that Alex had to have his little revenge.
Someone asked him how he had come to ask Sigourney Weaver. And he said (paraphrased): „At a certain point in one´s life, one realizes that the most important in the work is intuition. – And my intuition was to ask Sigourney to take that part.“
Someone asked something about autism, and AR said that as an actor, he did well in being very aware of the danger of sensory overload.
Then AR said that there was a scale of autism, and that (with his arranging pencils in a line at home) he knew now where on that scale he was. And he said that everyone should be aware where they are on that scale. He said that after the film he knew and accepted his inner autistic part.
When talking about SW plaing this part, he said (and mentioned it later again) that she had completely given up her ego, and underlined this by a gesture of throwing something back over your shoulder. As he accompanied what he said by gestures at times. And of course his facial expression was very lively, as we know it, with pouting, smiling, looking serious, tilting his head and so on.
He mentioned how SW had gone into that role and then at times they had to see what would happen. For example, there was a scene when Linda ran onto the street. He had asked SW whether he should let her do that, and how she would react if he tried to hold her back. SW had said that they would see that (when traing), and that way they had „ended up with her slapping me“. AR seemed to find that very funny.

AR talked relatively long a few times – three or four very long, perfect sentences, but always strictly to the point, and very interesting. A few times he started a sentence two or three times, changing it after two words without any embarrassment until he finally came up with a perfect sentence. He seemed like an extremely intelligent, extremely fast thinking person.
How fast AR´s facial expression changes we already know. I was very surprised at how often he smiled during the event. He was perfectly relaxed on the stage.
At the beginning, he tilted his enormous chair, almost overturned it – learning fast, he did not tilt it again that evening.

Thanks Susan for sharing your report. While it does sound like Alan might of had a bad night..don't let the AR Patrol come in here and stir things up to make us feel guilty about hearing these reports. We all are excited when one announces they are going to see AR and anxiously await the reports and or piccies to follow. We all expect to hear what he wears, how he looks and how he is with his fans.(My turn will be Oct 24th in NY for MNiRC.) I think that if the AR Patrol feels that this is wrong and we are invading AR's privacy then maybe they should not be here on this board reading the reports and viewing the pics that have been graciously provided for us to see. Just my 2 cents..now I'm off to celebrate my birfday!

I'm wondering what the date is for when MNIRC is starting in NYC.  I thought maybe AR would do some talk show appearances at that point.  David Letterman is in NYC.  Is there anyone else up there?

 

I wish he'd go to California and appear on all the ones out there.

Hello, everyone. I have read this guest book for a while and that way got the information about the BAFTA event in London. Thank you very much for that!! I was there and just came back home yesterday.
Every person has their own perceptions. I can share some of mine here, which are of course influenced by the fact that it was the first time I ever saw Alan Rickman in person.
We did not know whether AR would be present for the drinks at all, so I was very positively surprised when suddenly he was standing there on the other end of the room shortly before that ended. I went very close and then stood about one yard from him. He was looking very good, certainly younger than on the photographs of the last years, and talked to people in turns. He gave his full concentration to everyone who talked to him and his charming professional smile to some of them. I do not know what Rima looks like, sadly, so can´t say I have seen her there at all. Pity. I also did not see Sean Biggerstaff at all, which is a pity, too, as I really love that young actor.
At the Q&A AR said some things I found very interesting. He said that there is a scale of autism, and that after having done this film he knows where he is on that scale.
He also said that at his stage of career, he does only films from which he learns something. Maybe he also said then that every film might be his last, implying that most scripts were not that good. He obviously loved the script of "Snow Cake" enormously.
He also mentioned that he suggested Sigourney Weaver for the role, as who knows her knows that she is a real "mensh" (human being). He admired extremely how she played her role. He was also struck by Rose being so similar to her that it felt to him as if he was sitting next to Sigourney.
He spoke beautifully, sometimes fishing around for the beginning of his sentence, but you could have printed every sentence he said.
AR was extremely patient with the fans. He went back into the room at one point to give some more autographs instead of leaving. Some of the female fans were hanging around, not daring to ask for autographs. He gave the last autographs on the street, when the last ones had finally worked up their courage.
At one point he named many people and then remembered that he had left out Marc Evans, the director. He rolled his eyes, playing to be embarrassed about having left him out.
To me he seemed in good cheer. He smiled very often and laughed a few times. And I think he would not have been as incredibly patient with fans otherwise.
I was extremely happy to have seen Alan Rickman and about his attitude towards fans and being in the spotlight. He was perfectly natural.
Those are some of my subjective impressions.

What must poor Susan be thinking?

 

To be honest I feel totally overwhelmed at the response to my report.  It appears I opened a whole can of worms!  My first thoughts were that maybe I should not have been so honest in my report and kept certain observations to myself. Something to ponder on with future reports.  But I wanted you all to feel you were there with me, experiencing everything I was seeing.

I'm sure Alan will go on to make several more films despite his insecurities about his future.  I'm sure we all wish him good heath, happiness and the intelligence to realize when it's time to take a much needed holiday.  God bless you.

What must poor Susan be thinking, she gave us a lovely detailed report, that we all wanted I might add. She gave us an insight to the real man and stirred up a hornets nest. Leave the man alone. We don't know him, or his moods or his likes and dislikes, we speculate and discuss and it can be fun up to a point, when we go beyond that point it can get hurtful. I'm thinking of Susan here. I have never met Alan though I would love to and I love to read peoples experiences when they do meet him, but we could be putting people off if when they do tell us about meetings we carry on like this. Incidentally I am slightly older than Alan, I can forget my grand children's names and go through the lot including the dog before I get to the one who is standing in front of me and no way do I consider myself senile, I am far to busy.

(Hello???? all you well-meaning fans, It's not your responsibility!

Don't take on others' problems, including AR's. What fans say is their responsibility. What happens with AR's career is his responsibility.  Let's not get so confused that we feel we are responsible for AR's feelings, other posters' attitudes, etc.

I'm not sure where anyone hit the realm of obsession.  Discussion about what went on tended toward analysis of what we read in a report from someone else.  There were some seriously worried about some things and I thought some were simply responding to that worry by explaining the likely simple things that COULD have caused what we read in the report.  Then the whole conversation really, for the most part, stopped, and the discussion was about limits and what is okay and what isn't.

 

Very VERY little has been said about the original report and the private stuff once there was protest.  I think maybe one post came afterwards and I attributed that to someone reading the report and not seeing all the back and forth about privacy.

ARdent, I agree that only Claudia can have the final say about what is and isn't allowed on her board, but I know her to be a fair-minded person who allows people to share their opinions, even if they are dissenting ones, as mine is.    

 

Quote:
. . . speculation on this world-wide public forum about What's Wrong With AR is probably not the most respectful way to show our appreciation of him.

 

I agree, Ellen.   

 

Clearly there's a difference of opinion as to where the line should be drawn--where AR's privacy begins and ends.  I don't think this is a bad discussion, but a positive one, and I'm sorry if people feel threatened by it.  Personally, I believe in balance.  There is AR the artist, AR the celebrity persona, and AR the man, as Vera has said.  Obsessive analysis of his work or this persona--down to niggling over tiny details--isn't over the top, IMO.  It's what fans do.  Joking about his clothes (or his bananas) ala the fantastically funny RedTango, and even making reference to our fantasies/fascination with that celebrity persona (the only AR we know) is also what fans do.        

 

The issue that some of us are taking--and I think this is a valid issue and a valid opinion--is that to take that obsessive analysis into someone's private life, where we don't have facts to back up the theories we publish in the open, is to disrespect them.  And look at how the theories are spreading; I have seen the speculation tear through the fandom like a wildfire, with people jumping to all sorts of conclusions.  It's one thing if you're the kind of celebrity who welcomes this and considers ANY publicity good publicity (oddly, some do), but we all know how AR is about his private life, and to respect him is to respect that.  As we would respect the requests of other people in our lives for whom we feel great admiration.     

 

I'm not saying we should put him on a pedestal--not at all!--but we shouldn't treat AR any differently than we'd treat our co-workers, friends, or family members, or than we would want to be treated ourselves, because he IS a real person, just trying to be and do his best.  I know that I wouldn't want my private life, romantic relationships, health issues, etc. to be the subject of anyone's casual speculation, and so I try to respect that with regard to AR, the man.  I'm not judging anyone here, just expressing a deeply held opinion, formed over many years in this particular fandom.

Today five or six of us have suggested, as politely as we could, that speculation on this world-wide public forum about What's Wrong With AR is probably not the most respectful way to show our appreciation of him.  His health, his frame of mind, his most intimate relationship, alleged negative sides of his personality--now hints of senility, perhaps?  A universal aspect of being middle-aged is occasional short-term memory flickerings.  Is there any way we can persuade the rest of you to take this thread to private e-mail before it gets picked up by a reporter and spread through the tabloids?

I forgot my own phone number yesterday and when I was at the pharmacy getting a prescription filled I started telling them the number I had from almost 2 years ago.

 

This was because I had a ridiculously CRAZY day.  It wasn't even a BAD day, just busy and goofy.  My daughter stayed home because she didn't feel well.  My son stayed home because he accidentally swallowed something he shouldn't have but didn't know what it was because he chews everything in sight because he has autism and even though he's 9 he chews stuff.  My phone started falling apart and bits of it were falling off.  Alex ended up having to have an xray.  Then we went to get the glasses fixed and they were closed for lunch.  I went and got us some food and got grease all down my front.  The glasses couldn't be repaired because it needed a part and the glasses were discontinuted so we needed new frames.  The frames were only 38 or I could use the warranty and they would be 25 for shipping the old frames back to the makers.  But I was freaking over money because the eye doc's officed called last week and said I owed $400 because my insurance wouldn't pay something.  So I was fretting over the $13 difference between warranty and giving back the glasses or no warranty and keeping the old ones, having them glued back together and using them for emergency purposes.  I spoke to the staff at the eye doc and said, "I can pay $200 today but not the full $400 which the billing person had given me quite a bit of grief about last week.  They looked on the computer and couldn't find a balance for me.  They fretted and ran around looking and finally figured out that I'd already paid it back in JULY.  Which was a relief and I wasn't angry at the time because I was too busy laughing about my ridiculously nutty day.  I paid the $38.  Oh, and I haven't slept well all week and had a hot flash the night before all this that I didn't really know was a hot flash because I woke up freezing from having a wet shirt from sweating so much.  I slept through the hot part.  This means I'm heading into menopause which I knew was going to happen soon but still....

 

sorry for the long paragraph but reading that way might illustrate WHY I couldn't remember my phone number even though I've had the same one for nearly three years.  Sometimes just being too busy messes up short term memory.

*That he forgot Marc Evan's name. That doesn't look the kind of things we "remember" but we "know". I think it's possibly because of working or his age. That didn't look good to me...

Just to add my two cents while waiting another of my downslooooowdings to finish...

I think we'll agree that when somebody goes to an AR related public event we count the minutes for the report to come. Reports, piccies, videos, you name it... everything is welcome and highly appreciated!

How we interpret the information received is an individual process, as unique as we are each one of us. POV's are just that, we're not making laws here.

As Claudia said in the introduction message: "We don’t have a lot of rules, but we do expect everyone to respect each other and to respect Alan Rickman."
IMO, today's discussion did not break this golden rule. Everyone exchanged their opinions with politeness, no harm has been done and as fas as I know no squirrel has been damaged.


...and probably the OooA and You-know-Who are sleeping together right now having sweet dreams. (Oooh, what a gossiping!! How can I assure such thing??!! Bad Nahima, bad!)

Have a Lovely Weekend guys!

After reading the article about Alan down below, maybe he just had an off night. Who knows? Also, as Susan stated, she had the wine without food and it was going to her head, so perhaps she was a little fuzzy? I know if I even have one little drink-WOW-it gets to me right away and I become disoriented. (LOL).
I guess what I am trying to say, is everyone has their off days and if we are fans of Alan's just move on and rejoice in his films, plays etc. and leave his personal life to him.
(will get off my soapbox now) I also in no form want to hurt anyones feelings either and thought Susans  report fascinating-I just took it with a grain of salt as the old expression goes.
Have a good one all-off to bed soon-what a busy day-

Perhaps it is also an invasion of privacy to go to these public events and report on every tiny nuance of what Alan does.  Reporting on here what Rima did when Alan tried to kiss her is almost certainly an invasion if discussion of it is an invasion.

 

Sorry Susan, I'm not trying to give you grief about anything, just trying to make a logical point. 

 

Reporting that Alan won't sign Snape pix because "That's not me" might be an invasion too.  He wasn't necessarily intending for these appearances to be reported worldwide any more than he was intending for us to talk about it.  He probably also doesn't intend for us to talk about his sex life or underwear or who his significant other is.  So we need to restrict all conversation to movies and characters and include nothing that Alan may or may NOT have said.  Taking such things out of context may be harmful as well.

 

How often have we speculated on how Alan feels about the press?  Or who he hugs?  Or where is Rima?

 

I'm not saying I was right in anything I said.  Only that if I'm wrong then there's a lot of other stuff wrong too.

 

Respectfully,

 

Miriam

The only one who can decide what is "too much" in this forum is Claudia (or Sabine GA in her stead) and nothing disrespectful has been written.

I missed this message from before.  I apologize if anything I did was unethical or wrong in any way.  My perception here is that we are not the center of the universe so our opinions play little role in the lives of celebrities.  I don't claim to "love" Alan Rickman.  I mean I LOVE my perception of Alan Rickman.  If I assumed that my life in any way impacted Alan Rickman's I'd worry about my sanity.  It would be like assuming, "Alan Rickman wants me to camp on his lawn."

 

I maintain that being interested in the man's emotional state is no different than being interested in his boxer shorts.  Either they're both an invasion or they are not.

 

I'd email privately about this but I don't have the email addresses to do it.

 

"Speculating in public about the private concerns of a man you claim to "love" is not only harmful (to this man and his partner), it's irresponsible, selfish and childish. If the same speculations that you are posting here appeared in a tabloid newspaper, you'd be screaming bloody murder about "invasion of privacy" and "lies".

And that's okay because we're not writing this in a newspaper, we're just casually talking about stuff. 

 

No, indeed, instead we post about it in the internet - worldwide.

 

Fantasies are never wrong because they don't involve real life and NOTHING I say in here about Alan Rickman should ever be taken as REAL LIFE.

 

I think that we sometimes forget that Alan Rickman happens to be a real person.

 

There are LOTS of people who write fanfics about Alan Rickman rather than about characters he plays and it's fun and interesting to think about the possibilities.

 

This happens to be one of the lines I mentioned above, which I personally don't cross. I think real life fanfiction is absolutely disrespectful.

Sorry, something I wanted to add here.  We all are here to indulge in fantasies.  Some of what mine are about is emotion and psychology.  It's in all the fanfics.  Analyzing what I read in peoples reports and in articles and what I see in interviews is part of that.  And we ALL do it, it's just that some of us talk about boxer shorts and sex.  Everyone here waits to read reports from people when they go and each little tidbit adds something to each person's thoughts and fantasies about a person we can't ever know.  And that's okay because we're not writing this in a newspaper, we're just casually talking about stuff.  So is indulging My fantasy wrong?  Fantasies are never wrong because they don't involve real life and NOTHING I say in here about Alan Rickman should ever be taken as REAL LIFE.  It's only theories and stray thoughts.  There are LOTS of people who write fanfics about Alan Rickman rather than about characters he plays and it's fun and interesting to think about the possibilities.

 

As for the "protect Alan" thing, that's a BIG part of some folks' fantasies.  It doesn't mean they think he can't take care of himself.  It means they like the fantasy of being needed.  How is that different from enjoying a fantasy of bedding the man?

So far I don't think anything is out of proportion.  Everyone agrees we're clueless and it was probably an off night.  I can't help that I'm fascinated by human psychology.  It's my nature to analyze human interactions and I think I'm much too down to earth to put much stock in any of this.  I'd like to think we're all sensible enough to know that our perceptions are likely to be totally wrong and that we're only looking at a snapshot which tells us nothing.  But for me, anyway, it's almost like trying to figure out how a magician does a trick.  Just because I can't necessarily know the truth doesn't mean I don't enjoy thinking about it.

 

So if you'd rather not discuss such things at all I can always take it else where.  But so far I've really enjoyed it here.

Susan,

Thanks for the report.

I wouldn't take an off night too seriously.  AR is a little of a misery guts at times, and I'm sure being tired doesn't help.  I'm a **tch when I'm tired.  My husband and I loved each other very much but I KNOW we had squabbles and there were times I'd have liked to knock his block off.  AR strikes me at times as taking life a little too seriously.  And....it is normal to once and awhile think about the years passing by!  I've said good-bye to lots of things I'd thought I'd do or be.  But there are other plusses that age brings--he knows it --he's just had a bad day, Rima might have had a bad day, too. Just means our matinee idol is human--thank goodness.

I wholeheartedly agree with Ellen, Vera, Disgusted, and all those who posted earlier in an attempt to put the brakes on this runaway train.  Concern is one thing, but outlandish speculation in public is an altogether different one.  And that's precisely what some of this is.

I've never been part of the "Must Protect AR Camp," because I fervently believe that fandom is for the fans (read: for us to relax, joke, have fun, make friends, etc.), and that curiosity about him is natural.  To a point.    But this is too much--whatever is "wrong" with AR is his own business unless he chooses to make it otherwise, and whatever did or did not go on between AR and his partner is between THEM.  I seriously doubt that other people's noses and theories--well-intentioned or not--are welcome.  I'd bet that goes for their own circle, but certainly for his fans. 

 

No wonder the man is timid of doing interviews and public appearances.    I would be too!

It doesn't harm anything for us to be concerned and try to figure it out.

 

The problem is that no one of us will have the opportunity to figure out anything at all. And the more people discuss it, the more it seems to get out of proportion. As a few other posters already pointed out, it's all guesswork, and while it's well meant to be concerned about his health and sanity, we don't have the slightest reason to think that something might not be okay with him, and in either case we can't do anything about it. I think that to a certain extent discussions as the one going today do cause harm, because this is exactly how rumours about his health and the state of his relationship, which both aren't our concern, come into being.

I mean about saying a prayer if we're so inclined.

 

Maybe this will sound silly, but since I'm not inclined to that I felt like you were taking people like me into account and thinking of my feelings.  I've been treated rather badly by some folks, some who were supposed to be my friends, because I didn't do as they did.  They stopped inviting my kids to their kids' birthday parties and such.  Anyway, so when someone takes that extra little step to acknowledge the fact that not everyone is the same it makes me feel good.

 

I love this place.

Just read Susan's report.  Wow, poor Alan.  He is exhausted and also probably was VERY upset about whatever happened with Rima and distracted by it.  Nobody likes to be angry with a loved one.  Whatever it was it messed with his self esteem a LOT and I bet that prompted the thing about not working much longer.  He needs a BREAK!  I wish I could have been there.  I know it couldn't have been easy and may have been a bit disappointing, but generally when I'm in a room and someone is obviously NOT behaving as they normally would I can figure out quite a bit about it just by standing back and observing.

 

Maybe he's sick.  I saw one photo recently where I didn't think he looked well at all.  Then in others he looks fine.  Working too much won't help any health issues he has, though.  It's so heartbreaking.

 

I think Alan has really been struggling with getting older.  I mean it seems like he brings that up a lot about being older.  Like at Berlinale when he asked the actress who plays Vivienne to contribute something from the "other end of the age spectrum".  OUCH.  He also said something recently about looking in the mirror and thinking, "there's another role I wanted to play that I'm too old for now" or something like that. Like he's just watching roles slip out of his reach.

 

It all totally makes sense when it comes to the pic signing thing too.  Maybe he doesn't even want to see younger pictures of himself.  KWIM?  Wow, SO sad.  And to feel so unhappy and then to have a supportive person angry with him.  I mean it sounds like he was TRYING to be nice and fix things and it wasn't well received by Rima.

 

I hope he's not having some medical issues that are causing his brain freeze symptoms.  To me, though, it sounds like he was upset and just barely holding it together.  That happens to everyone at every age, I expect.

Ann, were you an extra in Perfume? It must have been exciting.
Other Jan , you know, I remember an interview in which Richard Harris said the same thing you quoted.
But RH was 72 and looking weak. AR looks just fine for now so let's all stop retiring the man or burrying him already. A bad day is a bad day and he'll sort out his personal problems one way or the other. IF there are any. Now please excuse me, I'm gonna go stare at that picture of him (Hikity's right, I thought there were no photos allowed. Hmm. Not that I'm complaining or anything ) for the next 17 minutes. Have a lovely evening all!

Thank you, Susan, for your detailed report. It sounds very objective to me . . . just a play-by-play description. You said:

Quote:
He also said that he didn't think he would be able to work much longer and fears every film will be his last. 

It seems that he would have the HP films "in the bag" if he's willing and able to do them . . . so why might every film be his last? His busy schedule could be from trying to get in as much as he can while he can. These things happen. But who knows? All we can do is wish him the best (and say a prayer if we're so inclined) and make sure we thoroughly enjoy his work.

 

As to memory . . . it took 2 minutes for me to come up with the word "objective" even though I knew what I wanted to say and have known the word for many years. So I can relate to that. His could be a physical problem or merely distraction at the moment.

Another thought about his being tired: IIRC, MNIRC begins previews on Oct.5...that's only seven days from today! He's going to have to be on a plane very very soon to come to NY and begin the incredible ordeal of not only directing, but suffering through endless rounds of inane questions & comments, as well as enduring a particular type of publicity this play will generate in NY. Talk about making a deal with the devil!

You would think after all the years Rima and Alan have been together she would would be used to his celtic black dog moods.  He said in one interview she understood his moods and knew how to deal with them.

Hi, I'm new to this page.  I found it while looking for new news about Old Times (that sounds weird,doesn't it - new news/old times).

 

Anyway, I just wanted to say thanks to Susan for that account, but reading it has made me a bit sad.  I know we all have our off days, but to read it in connection with someone you admire, who's an actor and should have been able to bluff his way through an off mood for this occasion, not to mention the comments like 'every film being his last' etc.  I have to admit, it's sent me on a bit of a downer.

 

Plus, I know through experience that if you and yours have a tiff before a big event, you grit your teeth and pretend to be a happy couple until you get back home and then let him have it, lock, stock and smoking barrel.

 

I need cheering up.  Someone tell me that Old Times is going ahead - only it's on in London instead of NY

You know, Alan must be one tired puppy. I mean just look back at what he has done over the past year or so. I believe it started with the ending of GOF end of 94 beginning of 95,  and next was the voice over of Marvin ,then went on and the work and prep to bring MNIRC to London  in March of 95 and all the work there that he did, then he went on to do Snow Cake in Canada in the fall of 95,then did Purfume in the summer of 95, then went and did Noble Son in  fall of 95. Then i believe he went and did the second running of MNIRC in Oct of 95. Then in if you think of all the flying to Film Festivals during the spring and summer, now the fall along with the prep ( and stress) of bringing MNIRC to NY plus all the other Film Festivals that has premiered at. He has been to  Germany, USA, to London, back to USA then on to Germany back to USA and then London. Now, i know i missed a few things a few apperances for charities and showings but i cant remember. Except the little holiday ( with Rima ) he had in Canada after shooting Snow Cake  i dont think he really has had any time to himself.

 

After all the stress rather it be good or bad can take a toll on a person. I for one give him kodoos for doing all that he is doing, and i can tell you one thing. If that were me who did all that stuff i would be one cranky person. We must remember that he is 60. Although he might seem cranky i think he is sticking to his principals. When he is promoting SC, Perfume, NS and MNIRC then who wants to be drilled on HP. I think he is well aware that the role of Snape has brought him more notoriety than if he didnt do it and the it must come with the territory but that doesnt mean he has to breath and live Snape. I agree with him, he is more than that.


As for him and Rima, gosh, who knows. One can only speculate and from my previous experience here, im not about to say anything.....look how many times Prince Charles and Diana went out having to put on a happy face and really not want to be around each other. ( now , im not saying it was like that with Alan and Rima). They are human.

I would think an actor would get quite tired of promoting a project that they did months/years before. They have already mentally moved on to the next project -- but business demands that they keep dredging up the past. It must get rather dull for him to keep dressing up and saying the same things. But, if people paid almost $100 for a ticket and a chance to mingle with him...that must have been disppointing.

Susan - thanks for the detailed report.

A huge and belated welcome to Ann, Karin, Kisch, Hayati, Alexi, Marta, and Sa!!  I'm so glad you all decided to join our little group.  Gosh, the international flavor we have here is amazing! 

 

   

 

I'm wishing Susan and her son a wonderful birthday as well!  I hope you two have a great day!

 

Thank you sooo much for taking time to write such an informative report, Susan!  I really enjoyed reading it.  I hope if any other little tid-bits come to mind you will share them too! 

 

I don't think we have to worry about AR's well being to much.  I know we all tend to worry when we hear things not being quite right with him at appearences but we have to remember he has a huge pile on his plate right now.  I don't see how it does it all.  I've been working long hours lately and can barely remember anything these days.  I'm sure he's OK.

 

As for a spat with Rima.  Well, is there a couple on this planet that doesn't have a spat from time to time?  Its a sign of "normalism" for them in my mind. 

 

AFNH, I hope you are feeling better! 

 

Alfan, I have to agree with you on AR's golf swing in TSfJG!  I'm not a golfer but I used to work for three of the biggest golfers in my area and they were constantly doing the "air swing" in the office so I can pretty well detect a decent swing!  LOL 

 

Chris, as for him shooting pool...I think you're right there too!  Pool/Billiards are a delightful pass time for me so I was delighted when he shot some pool in StLM.  Again, I'm not a pro but I think I'm pretty good at it.....especially with a nice cold beer at my side!  LOL 

 

Marlina you're right, Gissing has never been released.  *rolls eyes*.  But the golf swing was in some of the video clips that were "officially" released on the Gissing site.  I haven't checked there lately so I don't know if they are still there....or even if Binder has a Gissing section on the site any longer.  Nevertheless, whether the film was released or not, there have been many of us that have seen the film in its entirety.  I hope you will get the chance to see it one day.  I have some problems with the film but AR's and Juliet Stevenson's and Janeane Garofalo's parts were hilarious! Their comic timing is impeccable. 

 

RickiNicki, I've seen your ims from time to time but you've always signed off by the time I see them.  I hope to be able to catch you online soon.  I am sooo glad you got to see Perfume!  You and I were quite the cheerleaders for Tywker in those early days of Perfume! 

 

SnoKat, nope...you're not a wack job!  I do that too sometimes.  Especially on his birthday.

It's quite possible that although Alan & Rima have never been a demonstrative couple, they did have a falling out that precipitated their actions last night. They are only human. I don't think the producer would have made that comment if everything were "status quo", so to speak. LOL...I know what it's like to have to go somewhere after having a row....not the most pleasant adventure, to say the least!

 

Since you've seen him before, Susan, it's possible that something was "off" that night. I'm sure he's quite taken up with MNIRC right now, and to a certain degree, right now, "Snow Cake" is on the back burner.

 

My own take on the comment about not acting anymore is that possibly he feels that there aren't really good scripts being offered to him.

 

Regarding the camera & cellphone, LOL...now I know I have to go into one of those spy shops and purchase a camera that looks like anything but a camera!

I am just telling it as it was, anyone with me would have seen the same thing. I did not imagine it!

He looks OK, and you are probably right about him needing a holiday.  I think personally that he is beginning to look and feel his age and fears that there isn't much work there now for an "old man" his words, not mine.

I'm sorry, but I have to say this.....

 

Before we start assuming that he is mentally and physically exhausted, fighting with Rima, and has given up washing his hair, I suggest we consider that this is just one person's interpretation of an encounter.

 

Everybody interprets things differently.

Wishing you a VERY HAPPY ( official !! ) BIRTHDAY TODAY

 

Thanks very much for your fascinating account of last night ! Sounds like trouble on the domestic front ! Actually in all seriousness, Alan sounds as if he is completely mentally and physically exhausted . The man needs a holiday !

   I really don't think he is at all comfortable with being a "celebrity " and would rather not have to sign autographs etc. Interesting to see again that no photos were allowed ( just like Chelsea ) . I'm glad I didn't pay £50 for that. I am very happy to have seen " Snow Cake " and thoroughly enjoyed Alan's performance in it.

      You were very lucky, Hikity, Peek and Dee to be able to get photos !

      Hope you enjoyed yourself anyway, Susan ! Its always great fun having a trip to London.

Thank you Susan and I'm so sorry the evening didn't go so smoothly. What surprised me the most was the detail about Sean Biggerstaff. After all, they made a movie together, why should he want to be in DR's shoes in order to talk to him? Makes you wonder. Oh well. Have a nice birthday and do your best not to catch a cold from last night

What is your location? On second cup of coffee! ZZZZZzzzzz

Comments:

OK are you all sitting comfortably?......then I will begin!

 

Arrived in London around 4.30pm and walked through the masses of camera clicking tourists across Trafalgar Square, up Haymarket to Piccadilly Circus.  Wanted to find the location before getting a coffee nearby.  I walked right passed it and had to ask where it was. It was not as I imagined it to be. It was a very small discreet doorway in part of a much larger building with the words BAFTA above it. Time check 5.15pm......time for a coffee across the road. Returned at 5.45pm, a small number of people were now gathering clutching Snow Cake tickets. We had to wait outside as they would not let anyone in until 6pm.  Thought Alan might arrive in a car before then, but no.

Entered the small hallway at 6pm and got my name checked on a list, showed ticket and got to keep it.  Then they checked my bag and took away my camera AND my phone (with camera) and said I could collect them after the evening had finished.

I began to feel a little cloud of gloom gathering as I was beginning to imagine what kind of event this was going to be.

I walked up the stairway with marble walls, plush red carpet and gold handrails. The gold BAFTA face mask dominated the wall. Two floors up it opened into a reception area where I was greeted by a nice girl who showed me the cloakroom and walked with me across an area where many people were chatting and drinking to another raised area also with quite a few people. She got me a drink of red wine and wished me a pleasant evening.

I scanned around and in front of me was Snow Cakes producer (Gina Carter) talking with some elderly men. She kept looking towards the doorway and checking her watch. I thought it would be a good bet to stay close to her as Alan, when he arrived, would meet up with her. Time check 6.30pm and still no sign of Alan.  The red wine was very strong, and as I had not eaten anything, went straight to my head. The small canapes on offer did little to relieve my warm fuzzy feeling and swaying room!

Suddenly out of nowhere Rima arrived with a black woman and kissed and hugged the producer.  I scanned frantically for Alan, but there was no sign of him. By now the room was packed tight and I was almost pressed up against Rima who shot me two or three curious looks. Time check 6.45pm.  WHERE WAS HE?????

I looked away for a couple of minutes and when I glanced back....there he was as if by magic!  He kissed the black woman on the cheek and the producer, and then hesitated and looked at Rima. She ignored him and he reluctantly lent over to kiss her too.  She immediately turned her face away from him and the quick peck ended up around her ear, after which Alan gave her one of his famous Snape glares. He ignored her all evening and didn't speak to her once.  UMMMM....what's going on there I thought????

Alan chatted to various people in the circle around him, quinting furiously although they were only inches from him. I maneuvered myself around the circle trying to catch his eye and noticed a three women asking him for autographs. I had brought a nice photo of him with me and wanted him to sign it, so I moved in.

He looked at the photo and said " Oh no I don't want to sign any photo's"  This really took me by surprise "Oh go on it's such a nice one " I pleaded.  "No I won't sign any photo's" he repeated and then added "I'll sign one of those though" He pointed at a Snow Cake ticket some other girl was holding out. 

The other girl asked if he could borrow my pen and I gave it to her as I hunted in my bag for my ticket.  He quickly signed his name on my ticket as I asked about Old Times.

"I don't know yet you will have to wait and see" he said before turning away.  I was a little disappointed he had not recognized me. But he wasn't in the right frame of mind for friendly chats I thought, totally different from Hampstead you couldn't believe it was the same guy. He wore a black open necked shirt, casual black jacket and blue jeans. His hair looked like it needed a good wash, rather greasy with mixed colours of white, dark grey, dark blond and a lighter brown dyed top. 

A young guy with his mum next to me started taking to me, "I think it's going to be difficult to talk to him...I must remember not to mention Harry Potter...if I was Daniel Radcliffe I wouldn't have a problem"  I thought he looked familiar and then I remember who he was, the guy who played Wood in the Potter films. what's his name Sean Biggerstaff I think. Anyway his mum kind of pushed him forward and he managed to have a quick chat with Alan.

It was time to go in and see the film then, so I left Alan chatting and went to find my seat. Eight rows back, dead center. 

The producer introduced the film, and a guy from the autistic society thanked everyone for their support.

Watched the film, enjoyed it more the second time somehow, the audience didn't laugh all the time as before. I was prepared for the car crash part....note to anyone going to see the film stick fingers in ears when Vivianne starts singing in the car as they stop at a junction.  It is sooooooo loud!!!  I smiled to myself at every ones reaction as they jumped in their seats and yelled out, covering their ears in fright!

Afterwards some leather seats were arranged on stage, five of them, and in they trooped.  The autistic society chairman, the producer, writer Angela Pell, an autistic girl (Roz) who looked a spitting image of Linda in the film and our dear Alan, last seat far left as usual with glass of water under his chair which he fiddled with constantly.  There were some interesting questions and the interactions with Roz and Alan were funny as he had never met her before tonight.  Although she was on set with sigourney giving her instructions she refused to be social with them or have them in her house. Sigourney had copied this girl precisely. Alan got a smack at one point because he touched her while talking. He thought this was really funny and curled up laughing.

I noticed that Alan's memory/alertness was lacking alot last night. He couldn't remember the name of the director of Snow Cake (Marc Evans) and had to be reminded. Also he usually responds very quickly with answers to questions, last night he was literally lost for words and their were long periods when he just looked at her floor and ummmed and arrrred unable to put a sentence together and finally had to be prompted by the producer. This happened quite a lot and was a bit worrying.

He also mentioned that he thought he was in some degree autistic himself as he told us about the things he does at home, lining up pencils, straightening mats and such like.

He also said that he didn't think he would be able to work much longer and fears every film will be his last. 

The session ended and they stood around the doorway for a while as the people left. Rima had disappeared. I stood and chatted to Angela Pell the writer for some time before Alan interrupted us to tell Angela he was going. He apologized to me for butting in. He hugged Angela and kissed her on both cheeks as I looked on wistfully. Alan left. I heard the producer say to another person "What's up with Alan and Rima?"  I didn't catch her reply.

I stepped outside into the night and it was pouring of rain, with no coat or umbrella I got a taxi back to the station and sat on the train home pondering over the evening which had indeed been interesting to say the least..........

Hi Peekaboo - I did get one photo in Hampstead with you and Alan on it - it is not the best of quality, a bit blurry, but still! If you want me to mail it to you (next week) mail me and let me know!

I found this mention of Alan at an event at Sadlers Wells back in 2001. She writer mentions him briefly in the last paragraph:

Quote:
"Incidentally, it was a very glamorous evening. While having interval drinks I spotted Alan Rickman among the celebs (I've seen him at other dance events too, he's obviously a fan).


Here's the link. I had no idea he was a fan of the ballet. Did any of you?

Hello Everyone!

 

And a BIG THANK YOU for all these up-dates on Alan's projects and whereabouts! Thanks for the very recent photos of the Sadlers Well Event! That is why I love this Download Haven so much: always the most recent news and photos available! Thank You! A great fan site!

 

His eye colour - a popular subject! I have just gone through my folder of photos and it is strange: his eyes look either a very light and bright hazel brown colour OR they have got a lovely green-greyish shine! It's probably just the way the photos are taken, the light/shadow! But in any case: they are a pair of lovely eyes!

 

I have recently seen "The Perfume" and I LOVE this movie very much, I can recommend it strongly! Great work from Tom Twyker! And a brilliant cast, the actors work so well together! I really like the way the movie is done very, very much! Our man of course is brilliant as "Richis", Dustin Hofmann is perfectly cast as "Baldini" and Ben Whishaw as "Grenouille"  -  just perfect! Great camera work, great costumes, great scenery set in 18th century France - definitly one movie worth watching! It seems to be doing great at the box offices in Germany, Switzerland and Austria. I read a short article in one Swiss newspaper yesterday and will make a translation of it and put the summary here later on this week: but just for starters: 2,2 million people have seen the movie during the first 10 days of showing in Germany! And btw: I read in the same article that the movie will premiere in the USA on December 27!

 

Cheers to All from Switzerland - and Susan, have a GREAT evening tomorrow! Thinking of you!

Eyecolor-- I vote warm brown with just a touch of green. So basically, hazel.

 

haircolor-- dirty blonde before the grey set in.

I've seen quite a lot of fights on some boards over the question what his eye and hair colour are. I'm convined that his eyes are hazel and that his hair was dark blond before it turned grey.

I hope he discusses IT with you, over red wine, smiles, hugs and kisses!!!

 

And of course, hope he sings "HAPPY BIRTHDAY" to you in that sweet, quiet, sensual voice which only Alan Rickman can do.

*sigh* I just love these up to the minute postings of Alan's whereabouts. Something "warm and fuzzy" about knowing that yesterday while I was painting a bedroom he was off doing an event. Yes, I am one of those wack-job fans who enjoys keeping that close of a tab on him! Kind of like I enjoy talking to my Mom EVERY night just so I can hear how her day was, however uneventful it was.

My son plays softball at a place called Russell Creek Park.  I always call it Russell Crowe park.  My brain just GOES there.  Sometimes I do it just for silliness, but sometimes I genuinely can't get the right name.  LOL.  I'm a goof!

Hach, Susan, it seems you are reluctant to leave the ceiling.

You are going to engulf him in a loooooong interesting discussion (you cannot be nervous after the umpteenth time, can you?) and don't forget to send him our (Peek's, Tanja's and my) regards  

And btw, it's also nice to talk to Mark Evans, should he be there....

My ticket for the the Bafta Snow Cake screening has arrived and it's huge!  Hope you get to keep it!

It looks like I am your only Rickman ambassador going.....I won't let you down girls! and I will ask about "Old Times"

 

There is even a dress code for the evening, SMART/CASUAL whatever that means!  Have changed my outfit 6 times so far, still not really sure. The drinks and canapes reception sounds challenging, perhaps Alan will take pity on the lonely wallflower up a corner clutching a red wine and come over to keep me company on my Birthday!  LOL

 

If you want to see a photo of the ticket just email me.

Here is something about Harry Potter at last!!!

http://thescotsman.scotsman.com/index.cfm?id=1414202006  

 

 The other returning talent includes Robbie Coltrane, Michael Gambon, Ralph Fiennes, Gary Oldman, Alan Rickman and Julie Walters.

 

 

And one more quite amusing review about Robin Hood  http://www.theregister.co.uk/2006/09/25/robin_hood_welsh/

 

Sadly, said kingdom is quickly occupied by evil Norman prince Count Falkes de Braose, forcing Bran to leg it into the woods. Naturally, and since we suspect Lawhead is moonlighting as Mel Gibson's screenplay writer, Bran (Brad Pitt) soon hooks up with Angharad (Paris Hilton), a "mysterious healer and singing storyteller", whose faith in the renegade's "potential as a heroic king" gives him the bright idea to steal from the rich - including Count Falkes de Braose (Alan Rickman) - "in order to raise the money needed to buy back his kingdom and free his people, forced into slavery by their new ruler".

 

Good luck!

Hey everyone!!!  Although its a Monday it still seems like it will be a pretty good day!  I hope everyone had a great weekend. 

 

I am still working on getting the emoties back in their rightful home AND still working on the archive from last month.  On top of everything else, my son and his significant other (whom I adore to bits) announced a few weeks ago they are getting married so her Mother and I have been spending every free moment with arrangements!

 

Super thanks to everyone for all the videos, pics, and articles about our OoA!  Keep 'em coming!  Yall are the best bunch of AR fans in the world!

 

One little quick story.  It is AR related.  Thanks to my dear friend, Ali-Pat, I obtained the ALA poster a few weeks ago.  While shopping for wedding stuff last weekend, I finally found a frame for it and was able to hang it on my wall.  Well, Baby Ryland was visiting me this weekend and noticed the poster.  He was totally fascinated by it for some reason!  I know it was the colors etc but I prefer to think he is like his Nana in that he knows a true talent when he sees one! 

 

Here's to a great week for everyone!  (darn I wish I could get finished with the emoties!)

Hello to Everyone!

 

This is my first entry after "lurking" for a little while! I am Karin from Switzerland and as all of you a huge admirer of AR!

 

I was in London-Hampstead on Sept. 05 together with Susan and her daughter Angelina and I would especially like to greet the other fans I met there: HELLO Hikity, Peek and Sue! It was so nice meeting you and it was a great evening and movie ("Snow Cake")! Thank you, Hikity for posting the photos I had made there, as I have no idea how to put photos for all of you to view. I do have a couple more to share and I will send them on to Susan to post.

 

THANKS to everyone at Download Haven for a great site to share views, photos, etc. on AR and his movies/projects and that it keeps us all up-to-date on his projects!

Vera, you are far too gentle in your opinion about journalists, imho, esp. when it comes to the yellow press (like Express and Bild only to mention these "famous" two). Often enough do they provide the reader with false information ON PURPOSE which make my hair stand on edge. I say this due to personal experience - never ever has there been one quotation correctly paraphrased when one of my family members was interviewed.

In each magazine I find loads of wrong stuff in nearly each and every article about a topic about which my family, hubby or I happen to have a detailed knowledge ourselves. I have come to read the newspaper with a certain disdain to be honest

You're welcome.

 

Rickwoman,

 

1. Yes, I noticed that contradiction about "The Princess and the warrior" as well.

 

2. In another interview he clearly said that he didn't read the novel, now he says in the German translation that he didn't read the "Buch", which easily can mean "Drehbuch", that is film script.

 

3. As ARdent says, AR said in the "Express" interview that he buys the perfumes she tells him to buy. That's not much different from buying the one or two fragrances she uses, is it?

 

The problem with all these interviews is that we will never know what he actually said in English. Therefore I also wouldn't regard the interview at the official "Perfume" website as gospel.

 

Apart from that these are all minor details, which I'm afraid are easy to be missed by a journalist. Not because they are lazy or malicious, but just because often they are told so many things in a very short amount of time that, despite the fact that they take notes, they might miss or misunderstand a detail or two. That's human.

Hmmmm, don't want what to say about the perfume and interviews, probably Alan has to say that "story is marvelous" and such things even if he does not have a real relation with it? It's curious. There are always contradictions though.

 

I did not remember that here were pics from "The Perfume Premiere" on BrunoPress. I like this site and viisit it frequently. So, I decided to show you them now

 

             

 

Please notice that he embraces not only Rachel Hurd Wood, but also Jessica Schwarz  and Karoline Herfurth. So, he definitely like this! Wink 

 

Good luck

To everyone I forgot!

Regarding interview thank you Vera for transating it! Which one was the carpet interview where he tripped? Haven't seen that one. I've never heard him saying "great book, great story".

I finally managed to watch Perfume. I think it's a good movie, not many changes though. I liked the way it's filmed. I think Tykwer did a great job!






ARdent

Thanks for the new interview, Vera. It sounds much more logical.

 

rickwoman: He also made it sound like he had read the book in the red carpet interview (where he almost tripped) when he said, "Great book. Great story."

In the old interview he said he used to buy perfume for her but now only buys it when he's asked to, I think. The new interview seems to make more sense.

It sounds like the first interviewer didn't take good notes and relied too much on a faulty memory. Or someone elses, maybe.

Concerning interview:

 

At least two contradictions to the interview on the "The Perfume" homepage (and this one I estimate as the more authentic):

 

1. AR said he missed the movie "Der Krieger und die Kaiserin" from TT  - in the new interview he says, he liked it most!

 

2. AR said, he didn't read the book - in the new one he says, he read it.

 

Also the mentioning of the perfume he bestows to RH - didn't he say in the "Express" interview, he formerly bought some for her but not nowadays ?  - and in this recent one he suddenly says, he "buys only two, she is used to"???

Hey Hikity! whilst googling I found this quote (from this Article):

 

Quote:
Rickman spent four years working the length and breadth of England in repertory before joining the Royal Shakespeare Company in 1979. During those journeyman years, in addition to suffering the embarrassment of playing a squirrel in a Christmas pantomime and having to sing "She's Pooped Without Her Porridge," ....

Here is a cute article   http://uk.news.yahoo.com/22092006/344/cast-sign-digital-die-hard-4.html 

 

 

"No-one has yet signed up to play the villain - although a Brit is likely, given Alan Rickman and Jeremy Irons acted so memorably in two of the previous three flicks."   

Interesting....

 

BTW, here on LJ is a post, where are a lot of glorious pics. I have not seen them here before, that's why I decided to put the link here. I just went to LJ and saw this post.  Could not help telling. I have been waiting that someone will show the link, but if no one is doing it, I am supposed to do it now. Sorry if smth is wrong. http://community.livejournal.com/ar_daily/153212.html

"Perfume: The Story of a Murderer"

Director: Tom Tykwer

Cast: Dustin Hoffman, Ben Whishaw, Alan Rickman

Plot: In 18th-century France, a smell-obsessed perfume-maker murders innocents in order to find the perfect scent.

Outlook: From the talented director of "Run Lola Run" and "Heaven." Will the New York Times have this reviewed by a film critic or its new perfume critic?

Forgive me if this is old news: Weaver is on the cover of "More" magazine this month. She talks a little about Snowcake -- said she hurt her knees while bouncing on the trampoline and was in physical therapy for months -- and gained 8 pounds. *smile* Most of us can relate to that, can't we! She looks beautiful in all the photos. But, she only mentions Alan once. Said he suggested her for the role. That's it.

Not a movie, mind you, but a film. That rare, artful entity that arrives in a foreign language with no stars and fewer explosions. Sometimes they actually make you, excuse the profanity, think -- or th**k, as Hollywood spells it.

"Think" does seem to be largely a dirty word in Hollywierd! -er wood. But they're not always in a "foreign" language (the definition of which depends on your point of view, of course).

Scroll down a bit to #8 which is Colonel Brandon's costume.

 

Pam I agree wholeheartedly!!!  I hope the exhibit gets around here, too.

Since I happen to find the most absolutely random pieces of info, here's one to ponder...found today, Sept.20 at:

http://www.eskimo.com/~tegan/aqua/blog/2006/09/aquaman-to-reappear-on-smallville.html

From the executive producer of "Smallville" (I don't know if this is syndicated in Europe), Al Gough, "Episode 11, which is our second episode back in January '07 is going to be called 'Justice', and it will basically be our first look at the Justice League. We're gonna gave Green Arrow,, Cyborg, Flash, & Aquaman, played by Alan Rickman."

 

For those who aren't aware of "Smallville" it's a show based, I think, on the early life of Superman (not a cartoon, BTW). The "Justice League" is & was a comic book with the good guys fighting the bad guys.

 

Anyone think this is true?

     Claudia, GA, what do you think of a "preview" button on the HTML Practice?

Who are these posters? I've been to many guest books and there is this same trend. There are major posters who contribute a lot of pics, news, etc., minor posters who post less often, occasional posters who come in weekly, monthly, etc. and those who post  only once. Also the Lurkers, who I think everyone keeps in mind when they post anything. After all, what is all this posting for but for anyone that visits.  My point: it seems natural and unavoidable that there are some people who just naturally find a whole  group of friends.  Not any deliverate plan to ignore anybody.

Sue, SquirrelOF COURSE we watched it in English, which is  -although a German film - in fact the orginal version. It sounds a bit strange but it has to do with the fact that the leading roles are performed by English actors . Well, BUT!!, may be you all remember Claudia stated some months ago, when we first shot a glance at the English trailer, that Dustin Hofmann's voice did not sound like his own! Ever since I've wondered too.  I am not able to recognize his voice in the film. He most def has no American accent in the film, which he most def HAS in an interview I recorded on Wednesday. And I have no recollection of DH ever having played Shakespeare (has he ever played on stage btw??), a reason to learn RP for an American actor (only never to succeed, ).

So, for all who know DH well and are going to see the movie soon, please let us know what you think!

 

Peek, I have the jittersSquirrel, I am not able to sit at my desk and do some serious study and I would love to see the film again tonight...I am very happy you are safely back home. And I got a post card from India today    Squirrel Acorn Acorn

I´ve enjoyed the movie so much, it´s beautiful. The wig didn´t turn out to be such an aweful eyecatcher like I thought it would. In fact I think he wears it with a natural elegance so it´s not disturbing at all. I really like to see Perfume another time but I have to wait till December before it shows over here.

Re Parfume: Yes, the wig comes off once and He looks drop dead gorgeous.   He sits on his daughter's bed . Is hair is a bit tousled Lionand we - Peek and I     - were sliding down in our plush seats, mumbling ohs and ahs (annoying our very annoying neighbour a bit, so it was even more pleasurable to be honest). When the film ended we sat for a while just starring at the end credits until we were alone in the cinema, sigh, his facial expressions conveyed his feelings brilliantly - but He is brilliant, isn't he?

Hi there!

 

Back from Perfume! What can we say.... we're chatting, drooling, swooning over everything and AR of course. The movie is marvellous, very well acted (even by Dustin Hofman), great shots, nice camerawork, lovely music. AR is great (even with a wig) as always. Mos Def a movie worth watching.

 

Hugs Peek

 

HE looks great in the 18th century costume and the wig - good grief he is just wonderful, the movie is great - you can smell everything:the fish market, the lavender fields, the majoran, the virgins' scent, TT did a fantastic job, especially the orgy was very thoughtfully filmed (thanks to Ulli). The film marvellously conveyed the way of life in the 18th century.

It's BEVERLY HILLS, CA - SEPTEMBER 17: (US TABS AND HOLLYWOOD REPORTER OUT) Actress Robin Weigert and actor Alan Rickman attend The Academy of Television Arts and Sciences Emmy Nominees For Outstanding Performing Talent reception at Spago on September 17, 2004 in Beverly Hills, California.

Yahooooo!!! At last I watched Perfume!!!!!! It was last night and I was impressed indeed! Vera made quite a detailed review, so mine would be very similar.

My friend who knows Alan said that he's in Los Angeles right now following Banksy. Also here is a good article   http://news.scotsman.com/edinburgh.cfm?id=847882006

Marlene, thank you so much for your generous offer! I appreciate it very much.  *hugs*

Another fan from Germany contacted me today also. She's going to order the DVD from the UK store, and I decided to take on her offer to join in. This way I can save the costs for the transatlantic shipping and only have to pay the normal inland postage.

 

I don't say the man isn't worth the extra costs, but you know, this way I can use the saved money for another Alan gooddie... 

 

Now, I can go and dream of a soon-to-be-mine Snow Cake DVD. I am sure the time till February will be pure torture. Since I haven't seen the film yet, and I doubt I want to go and watch the dubbed version, even if she makes it to our cinemas.

 

Take care and thanks again.

I saw a couple episodes of Fame Academy with Ruby Wax and she was a terrible singer but was funny.  Especially as she knew how bad she was.

Every night they had to sing a song live and where voted off.

In the studio audience there where quite a few celebs supporting those doing it.  Maybe AR was watching in the audience.

I try and avoid all those reality type shows but I did catch one episode of the series with Ruby in. It was near the end and I think Ruby and the final winner were up against each other. They did appear to have to live in a house together and train etc. From what I recall Ruby was a pretty rotten singer but made up for it in cheek!

OK, it appears that Ruby was on Fame Academy in 2003.

 

http://news.bbc.co.uk/cbbcnews/hi/tv_film/newsid_2852000/2852107.stm

 

Maybe Alan came to see her perform? 

 

I'm not entirely clear if it's like a "Big Brother" type show where contestants must stay in a house together, but as per Wikipedia, it seems they are filmed with spy cameras?

 

I wasn't quite clear as Ruby said Alan would be the type who would probably 'pass her notes'.

Claudia, Germany: I'd be happy to pre-order "Snow Cake" for you either now from the UK site (to be delivered some time after February, 2007), or from my local video store.  The advantage of ordering here in Ohio is that I won't have to be concerned about money conversions... and can pick them up in person.  Disadvantage is that I don't know exactly when the movie will be available.

 

I'm already ordering several copies for other friends, and myself.

 

Let me know what you prefer.

Hi Chris, Carolyn and happy belated birthday Laurie.I'm sorry I have not gotten back to you all sooner, but I just got back home from Toronto a few hours ago.So yes I said **ck it and went anyway.I did see SC, seems they stop selling tickets online but save some to sell on the day of the screening, so you may still be able to get some on Saturday morning for the afternoon screening.

   As Rita stated earlier AR was noticeably absent at the screening yesterday,there were certainly many disappointed people seated around me.The 2 producers were there, Niv Finchman said a few words and introduced some of the Canadian actors,Emily Hampshire  among them, 2 members of BSS,Marc Evans was there  and said a few words as well, and SW was introduced last(she also had  another film playing at the festival.CAM was at the festival last week (for another fillm) but could not stick around as she had other obligations.

  I did like the film a lot, but then I am admittadly biased.I was a bit surprised that it seemed to be done in an "up close"kind of way.Lots of great close ups of AR,which is always good.I did not think SW was too over the top,but some scenes were better than others.I too thought that it was kind of grainy but maybe thats how it was supposed to be....

   What I did not like so much was the choppiness of the way it was put together,especially at the beginning,it skips forwards a little too fast.Also I don't quite get the story about Alex' sons death,did it happen in his native England or in Canada,was Alex in prison in England or Canada(I presume England)???DUH   Anyway,I did talk to some of the people working at the festival and one did tell me that AR was supposed to be in town ,but as to why he did not show up at yesterdays screening I can only guess.My thoughts are that perhaps he wanted to see other films as he has already done a lot of pr stuff for SC,or that he may just show up at Saturdays screening instead....

   Any how ,thats about it for now, I've got a long day of work tomorrow , so nighty night ....I know what I want to dream about...

There is no better place to get information,pics and news about Alan Rickman.

You are such a well-informed circle...and...you share all your

AR-stuff with others.

THANK YOU SO MUCH !!

I would like to give you back a "little thing".

Found some pics a few days ago (Premiere of Perfume in Munich or Berlin). I try to upload them now. (hope the photobucket-thing will work)

Sorry for my poverty of words, but this is not my native language ("did I really learn english at school ??" oder reichen 18 Jahre aus, um ALLES zu vergessen?)

 

photobucket seems to work ;-)

Here are some more

Well, Alan does have a bad knee. One wich he tore ligaments in his knee during the shoot in Die Hard ( when he jumped down on to uneven pavement over and over again) and then again during the shoot of Judas Kiss ( covered up by the broken ankle car accident vey well if i must say). So it its really easy to re-injure a knee that was previously injured and Alan has quoted himself as being a bit of a clutz. ( Conan ).

Marlene,

 

Um... are you serious??

 

His jacket had a simple tear at the seams, and in the video I think you are referring to it just looked like his foot got caught on the carpet -- which he immediately laughed off.

 

I'm having trouble with jumping to the conclusion that he's injured from those two extremely minor occurences!

 

As far as not showing up at the Tornoto festival -- his schedule has been NUTS lately.  I can't blame the guy for wanting to sit one out.

"My Name is Rachel Corrie," March 15-April 22, the Leo K Theatre. Rachel Corrie, 23, a graduate from The Evergreen State College, went to the Gaza Strip to aid Palestinians whose homes were being destroyed in the conflict with Israel. In March of 2003, she was killed by an Israeli bulldozer. This compelling story of a personal political journey is told through Corrie's own words from her journals, as assembled by actor and director Alan Rickman and journalist Katharine Viner. This won the Theatergoer's Choice Award in London.

Hi all.

 

If you are interested, I did a translation of the Express interview.

You can find it here: http://xena-2001de.livejournal.com/56544.html

 

I know, somebody already did a translation, and linked somewhere on an Alan Rickman group days ago. But since I couldn't find the site on the web anymore (I forgot to bookmark it and I wasn't in the mood to go trough all the list archives of all my AR groups) I just went ahead and translated it myself. Also because somebody on my LJ wondered about the interview.

 

Hugs and take care.

Sue re Elton John concert, was it the one at St. Luke's church? I wish I had seen it, but unfortunately I read about it in the papers the next morning. Can't wait for the new album! Hope it will be great! Didn't like the last one, I think the last really good album was Made in England. Let's see what the latest one will be like.

I was at the screening of Snow Cake at Toronto today. Alan Rickman did not come. I actually waited for quite a while, saw the two female actresses and the director, as well as the producers..then news came that Mr.Rickman would not show up today.

 

The film was really really beautifully done. I enjoyed and loved it. Even cried a little. I'm going to see another screening of it on Saturday too.

Alfan - glad to hear you made your journey from Canada to Arizona safely.  I agree that all reviews are appreciated....supportive or critical.  Thanks for your candor Juliet and Vera

 

Maybe Nobel Son will provide us with that comic relief we've been aching to see out of Alan.  There was some interview recently were he talked about wearing "wonky teeth" (or something to that effect) and being absent-minded.  Since we haven't heard much about this film, it's hard to judge. 

 

Why do we have to wait so long for these films?  I think I will act like my teenagers and pout ("...it's not fair!")

 

Snow Cake isn't due here 'til December (or was it January?) and I haven't heard about a U.S. release date for Perfume  yet.

Meeressternchen, I honestly don't think Snowcake will be around in a few weeks. I think it's the last day at Kingston today. I should imagine it might pop up here and there for a day or two at arty cinemas but nothing more till the dvd in Feb.

All I know about Harold Pinter is that he has had cancer of the throat. He wasn't well enough to go to Stockho, for the Nobel Prizr but recorded a film instead.

Went to see  " Snow Cake " in Kingston last night and dragged hubby with me. Not such a good idea as it turned out because he wrote his car off in July by swerving to avoid a deer ( b....y stupid animals ! ) and he managed to walk away from the scene, just as Alex did, but that scene in the film upset him for the rest of the evening. Still he came round afterwards when we went to a nearby pub !!

    Anyway I enjoyed the film but had a few thoughts. Firstly you can tell its low budget because the picture quality is poor but I suppose the graininess ( is there such a word ? ! ) added to the atmosphere of the film. Alan undoubtedly stole the show and had the few comic lines ( nodding moose !! ). Hubby wasn't impressed by SW and thought she wasn't " real " -- his words. I thought Alan connected well with Emily Hampshire, shame she wasn't in it for longer.

    I too thought the music was great and yes, Alan needs singing lessons !! Mind you I saw him in the musical," Guys and Dolls" all those years ago, and he would have been taught singing at RADA.

    I can quite understand why the film is on limited release. It IS quirky and would not appeal to the masses. I enjoyed it and am very pleased that I have seen it, however I wish Alan would take on something more frivolous. I think he has great comic timing and a dead-pan face ( think jewellery counter in Selfridges ! It creases me up !! ).

The showing of "Snow Cake" is tonight at 6PM and it's also being shown on Sept.16. If he is going to be there, I'd assume he came in either last night or early afternoon today.

I know Emilia made travel plans to go there and as of last Friday, she still wasn't able to get tickets because they were all sold out (mostly to industry folk). I don't know if she decided to go and take her chances.

I guess you either love Snow Cake or will be bored to death by it. If you belong to the second group and do not like AR either, you are doomed  

Fortunately, I loved the film, it simply drew me in until suddenly it left me not "just looking", but also "smiling". *g* Mind you, if only Alan trained his singing voice a bit, he would give some nice performances for sure. What about some covers of Leonard Cohen

Hikity  I was referring to your post:  9/12/06 at 12:14 p.m.    I followed the link to the eBay auction of an Alan Rickman photo.   My currency converter converted  Eur 1,99  and  Eur 1,60 to the figures I posted. 

 

From everyone's reports, looks like the dweeb who gave the other-than-good report on "Snow Cake" is in the minority! Thank goodness!

 

Pre-Ordered my copies (and some for friends) from my favorite video store.  Laura has no idea when it's going to be released on DVD/VHS and said it's not yet on her order sheets, but when it's out there... we'll have it.  Posters should also be available with the order pre-packs.

 

If you're concerned that your local theater/cinema isn't going to get "Snow Cake",  here's a suggestion.  Start phoning the theater manager now...  or wait until  Mid October at the latest.  If you phone and ask for the title specifically, when time comes for them to pre-order... in the back of their mind they'll remember "people" asking for it.  Good chance they'll put it on their order list.

 

Have "Snow Cake" will travel.  

 

Thanks again, to EVERYone who's posting such positive messages!

Went to see Snow Cake in Leeds last night, dragged poor hubby along as well!

The eldest sproglet asked me if I would have seen this film if the OooA wasn’t in it, and the answer has to be no. Having said that, I have watched/listened to/read lots of things I wouldn’t normally, because of AR’s involvement, and often been glad that I had, unfortunately, this isn’t one of them.

Yes, the film is beautifully acted, and it’s wonderful to see AR in almost every scene, often looking fab, and it’s a very atmospheric film, that seems to me to conjure up small town Canada extremely well, the problem (IMHO) is that this film, like small towns everywhere, is just boring. It has a similar feel to TWG, and that bored me too. Just not my sort of film and even our Man couldn’t entirely redeem it for me.

Anyway, it was nice to have a night out without the kids and we had a lovely meal afterwards, so the time spent wasn’t wasted!

Saw "The Perfume" yesterday in a preview.

 

I liked the movie, it was well made, with very impressing visual effects and some surprises. Ben Wishaw is marvelous in his role and Dustin Hoffman funny.

 

AR has a bigger screen time then expected and surly is one of the main characters. The wig is ugly and most of the film he looks a bit fierce, but has some convincing scenes. 

 

At all hazards it was sooooooooo nice to see him in a new movie and the film is worth to be seen.

Meeressternchen, I don't know about "day seats" but you always have a chance of getting a return. You go in a couple of hours early and get a number then they let you have any seats that have been returned.

I am among the ones who agree with Me. Of course it can be fun to talk about Mr Rickman's - erm - interesting choice of clothes. But all in all, I LOVE what he wears. (You can throw tomatoes at Alan and me now *lol*). It is so him. And I like the idea that he does not stick to the rules but wears what he likes. Even if that includes Hawaiian flowers or fish scarves. There is no conformity there - and this is great, right? Like a political statement in itself

And he does not ALWAYS dress weird, does he? So, what would our Alan be without the occasional wrinkled suit or mismatched pants? Everyone seems to like his disshevelled hair - why not a "disshevelled" wardrobe, too? I think with too normal a wardrobe much less of the personality would shine through...

Of course, I understand you want to go shopping with the man - hehe, all right, enjoy!  But do not throw away his favourite paper clip shirt. *g*

Personally I find the fact that he might have a tear in his jacket or any other "flaw" as fascinating as if we had noticed that he was wearing brand new Italian shoes! ALL Alan stuff is "good." And if he wants people to think of him as normal and "human" than what he projects is just the ticket. I think he'd like for us to assume "oh, he's just like my husband who seems to like to wear the same shirt out all the time too." I LIKE that I don't always like his clothes. I adore his flaws. And I have no problem talking about them as I talk about all my own....my many, many, MANY flaws.

 

I'd hate for people to be offended over something so petty as should we or should we not discuss his clothing choices.

Me ... I TOTALLY agree!!!

 

"Alan is Alan and thats just how I like him...."

 

Heck, the man could wear a burlap sack or a fig leaf and it would be just perfect because he's Alan. 

 

Why should we make him self-conscious about what he's wearing, or not wearing??

 

And the rip?  Did you ever think perhaps he caught his jacket on something and perhaps fell ... and heaven forbid ... got hurt??  But he didn't want to disappoint his fans, so he showed up for the autographs anyway.

We are really funny! Nobody asked him about that play. Now, Susan, please, since you are seeing him for the umpteenth time this year ( ) and should be completely COOL, pleeeease just go ahead and ask him whether the rumour is true. Would you do us the favour?? You are a sweetie! Raise The Roof 1 Big Hug

Thanks for sharing Hikity

That dark haired lady in the first pic was a very nice lady I sat next to in the film. I think she had a Liverpudlian accent and was the person who told me about the Autism Charity gig on Sept 28th. She also said that she'd heard the Pinter play might open in London before NY but I haven't a clue whether there is any truth in that or whether he is even going to do the play at all

Hey guys,

Just a quickie here really,but....

Do we really give a monkeys if Alan has dandruff or rips in his clothes....???I just wanted to say this....

He is human,and for that I love him,he does not walk around thinking that he should be wearing this or he should be doing that,he just does what he likes and does it quite frankly rather well...

Im not having a pop at anyone here,not one bit,and I can laugh a long with anyone over certain fashion statements,but hey,this is our bloke,our talented guy who we all love and respect,so what I say is this...

Alan is Alan and thats just how I like him....

No, no, Camerata, that's the special neon light in discos. There was "normal" light in the bar and I am quite sure Peek's observations are right.

Rickwoman, yes, we two would be the perfect team I think!! Clearing out his wardrobe would be very easy - we just throw more or less everything away. Then we take him to Munich for shopping - I suggest after 6 November (my last oral exam). I plan to go anyway cz I believe it's by far the best city for shopping. If you agree I am going to write a letter to MP letting her know about it. I MEAN IT!!

Nonono! We will behave like well mannered girls and not kill him or someone else.

 

We need to make an interview and then the most apt will have the honour to look after him!

 

*maybe I've a good chance cause I'm in good training with supporting men since I was 16!  - and I will first start with clearing out his wardrobe*

Yeap, Peek, Dee et al: definitely dandruffs, flakes or whatever you call it (Schuppen in German). When I touched him on his left shoulder I had NO chalk in my hand, rofl, and neither a doughnut; but nobody saw the snowflakes - it's the camera.

Just a warning note:

We'll have to start a Southern Sue Society!!

The reviews have been pretty mixed for Snowcake, haven't they? It seems to be one of those films that critics don't want to enjoy in case somebody else says something nasty about it, but is popular with the public. Actually tonight it featured in the Standard's weekly Top Five films to see in London (complete with photo), shame so few cinemas are showing it.

I spent most of my childhood in cinemas in Kingston (there were four back in those days plus the 60's "package tours" of groups used to always call in Kingston and you could see a diverse mix of groups such as The Who, The Tremeloes and Stevie Winwood all on the same bill!)

Hope you enjoy it RoxySue.

Thanks very much Cassey for that highly amusing clip ! Arr! the poor dear stumbling about on the red carpet !

Susan : You lucky girl !! The ticket price is a bit steep for me to justify going, but I can be content 'cos we're off to see Snow Cake tomorrow at Kingston ( nearest cinema ! ). I am really looking forward to it despite the mixed reviews ( the Mail on Sunday was pretty rude particularly about SW ) and will post my thoughts ASAP.

    RE: SUSANS !!!! I too am a " Susan " and yes there were 5 Susans in my class at school together with 2 Suzannes !! Iam approaching 47 and it is certainly a name associated with that era . I wonder if Susan from Southern England is not only near me in age but also in geagraphy ? If you feel like dropping me an e-mail  I'd be thrilled.

Dinner after would be very nice I shall have to drop a hint!  Of course he would have to let me spend the night at his place because I would miss my last train home.....Dream on.

A very balanced review of SC by Gillian Reynolds (radio critic of Dailty Telegraph) on Parkinson's Sunday Supplement on BBC Radio 2 yesterday.

Basically saying the acting is superb, but the film meanders a bit, due (IHO) to having too may producers. She is a self-confessed fan. Her and Parky were saying what an interesting actor AR is, plays baddies better than goodies because he is such a controlled actor, not sure I agree with them, butr it's an interesting opinion.

Go to www.bbc.co.uk/radio2 and follow the link to the programme, you'll need RealPlayer and it's about 35 minutes in.

Saw Snow Cake last night at the cinema. There was only about a dozen of us there so I was a little miffed at the lack of interest.

The film was brilliant and AR was just magnificant. SW played her part really well. The only thing I would say about the film is that they generalised autism too much as opposed to talking about her specific form of autism. But then again what other way could it have been done? I think I'm a little critical of it as my son has autism and is, as it was said Linda was in the film, very high functional and very vocal however other characteristics are different between Linda and my son. I wanna go see it again though!!!

Thank you Sue, Vera, and Marlene for the articles!  Very interesting reading, and I can almost believe the interview is a real one.  AR might not believe in cologne but he believes in some kind of scent.  One of the most often-posted comments from stage-door meetings during his Private Lives run was the wonderful scent that accompanied him.  Scented soap, perhaps?

Of course, if Sky send the heavies around I shall have to remove it! There was an interesting piece on the radio about YouTube the other day. Apparently Channel 4 do not like people putting bits of Big Brother on there as it compromises their integrity apparently!! (Like there is any integrity with BB!!) However the BBC guy said that they were relaxed about putting snippets of stuff on YouTube eg Dr.Who etc. They seemed to think it encourages viewers rather than harming them. They would only get cross about whole programmes going up. Mind you I expect Sky is a whole different kettle of fish!LOL

Hey everyone,

I was just reading that "interview" and I am a little confused,you see,sometimes the man can come out with new bits about himself,now and again I think he just thinks to hell with it,why not,but then other times he is very private,he does has a good sense of humour,from past interviews we all know that,so,guess we will never find out really if it is "the real deal of an interview"....

As for the press over here regarding Snowcake,so far the only paper that has been an a*** is the guardian,but like I said before,they are a bunch of high class snotty too well paid journos who really are not all that....in my opionion of course...

I have now been able to judge the film for myself and I loved it,its great and to be honest,its Alans best by far,he really is increadible in it,as is the rest of the cast..

I want to go back and see it again asap,thats how much I love this film,and I look forward to seeing Perfume too....

The cinema that I saw Snowcake in was packed to the rafters(have to say,lots of Rickman fans in there me thinks)and it got a round of applause with it too...

My only regret with this is that the film is not yet distributed to the rest of the UK,I am only hoping that the success of it gets a distribution soon.....

Laides,this film is a must and yes,our man does look very very good and what a performance he gives too.....

My review.....10/10

Guardian can go and jump in the river,the film that they reviewed was not the one I went and saw thats for sure....

sue, all the best to you!! Better see a doctor on Monday!

Hubby and Tanja bought "the Express" and esp. Tanja was laughing to tears about the whole rubbish. I hope you don't mind, dear Vera, but we decided not to translate it, cz it's so obvious that the "writer" (shudder) made more or less everything up. Does anyone think Alan would ever give the SUN an interview?? However, today is an important article about the Perfume in our newspaper which hubby is reading on the terrace at the moment. If anything is mentioned about ALan I am going to translate it (despite fever )

Today they are all coming to Cologne and I got two tickets for the Cinedom (that's the cinema), but Tanja and I gave it a second thought and decided not to go. We have talked to AR, TT, JS and others, we had a fantastic week and believe that being among "masses" in Cologne can not top any of our experiences but might leave "a stale flavour". Besides, Peek can't come over, and without her we can only laugh half as much...

That sounds like home! Unfortunately, according to something I heard recently on television, the U.S. is behind many 3rd world countries in knowledge at certain ages and very far down the scale in general.

In those days everybody sat the 11+ an exam at the end of primary school which if you passed you got into grammar school. If you failed you went into Secondary Modern and weren't in general expected to go to university etc. At the end of the 60s most areas dropped the 11+ and schools merged to become "comprehensive" and education more or less went down the tubes from there!

Ardent, in alan (and my) day we didn't have grades. You started secondary (in his case,  and mine, grammar) school at 11 and went into 1st year. You could leave at 16 (5th year) but if at grammar school you would most likely stay until 18 (the upper sixth). So if the guy was 18 in 1962 then Alan would have been 16 and probably in the 5th year.

Thanks very much Sue for the Canadian article. I know you are the resident English expert but I thought I'd try to answer the school question. We started secondary school at 11 so Alan would have gone to Latymer Upper in September 1957 I assume. I went to the sister school Godolphin and Latymer and rue the fact that we didn't do joint productions. I always landed up with male roles like page boys, servants and heralds. But he was probably great as Annie the barmaid!

Come to think of it, I was in the first part of my last year in 1962, also, and the "younger boy" could have been only one year younger, but there's still the question of what grammar school is considered to be. I guess it's a silly detail, but it has me wondering . . .


ARdent 
9/09/06 at 05:37 PM

Comments:

I have a question, Sue (or whoever): How many grades are there in grammar school there? Here, the 12th grade is the last in high school and grammar school ends in the 6th (or did when I was in school). The reason I wonder is the National Post article says:

Quote:
I've been a fan of Rickman . . . since 1962, when I was in my last year at a West London grammar school. Playing Annie, the barmaid (it was an all-boys school) was a younger boy whom I'd never met before.
Who was Alan Rickman. I am 3 months older than Alan and graduated high school in 1963. Would he have been younger than that guy who was in grammar school in 1962??? Even if he's talking about what we call high school, it would mean that Alan graduated at least 2 years after I did and that doesn't seem to fit??? He should have graduated a year later than I because I was the next to youngest in my class due to my birthday, but 2 years seems too much. Just wondering . . . it sounds odd.

I translated the interview with Alan Rickman, which Sue mentioned earlier and which was printed in today’s edition of the newspaper Express, which is sold in the Cologne area. It’s a rag, and while I think that the interview is really funny, it seems quite out of character for AR if you take into account other interviews he gave.

Vera, there is a preview of The Parfume on 10 September in the Cinedom in Cologne - meanwhile sold out - and they told me all leading actors would be present. I asked the lady at the phone whether she knew about Alan Rickman but she had to repeat his name twice without doing it properly and was at a loss. Who is that??? LoL. Well, someone here might know when Alan is supposed to be in Canada - wasn't it around the 10th?

Laura, I don't know WTF happened!! I can't get into the site now as well, & I'm logged into LJ! There was a pix of her & Alan and she has a little story of having coffee or something, seeing him, getting his autograph & then his pix!

Thank you so much, Catsplay.

 

FYI regarding the premiere in Cologne. Originally I got the information from Constantin Film that there would be a third premiere on Sunday, 10 September, and the cinema confirmed it, although they were unwilling to tell me which stars might attend. Now I had another look at the official film website, which suddenly states that there will be a premiere in Vienna on 10 September, in Cologne on 11 September and in Basel on 12 September.

Sorry if this has already been answered but can anyone tell me why Alan is so against the Harry Potter part of his life? Hejust seems to keep his distance from anyone wanting autographs with him as Snape. I do vaguely remember something about him saying he is more than just Snape but does that mean he wont sign ANY character photos??

Mind you Hampstead Everyman was mega swish. Even in the non-sofa seats we had full legroom. The bar was full of squashy velvet sears and you could even take booze into the cinema. Mind you we didn't have time to queue up for a drink after we came out of the restaurant.

Daydreamer, thanks so much for capturing the video! It's awesome!

 

I found a rather lengthy review of "Perfume" at:

http://service.spiegel.de/cache/international/spiegel/0,1518,435918,00.html

 

IMO, it's fairly neutral, neither overly for or against, but it did raise an interesting point in that it says most of the audience & critics who aren't crazy about the film do so from the prejudice that the book could never be made successfully into a movie at all.

12 hours with Alan Rickman/one of the most wonderful days in my life:

 

15h a friend from Nuremberg arrives and we, together with my 19-year old daughter, drive to the city and install ourselves in a cafeé right aside the Red Carpet

 

17h a further friend joined us and we lined up at the Red Carpet. There is a narrow street behind the cinema and the closed it for the Red Carpet. On one side of the street stood the press, then there was the Red Carpet under a canopy, and then came on open space and on the other side of the street we stood. There we met two further Alan fans.

 

Around 20h: The press suddenly yelled: “Alan, look here! Alan, look here” and we knew: Out hero had arrived. It took a horrible long time; he spent with any sort of reporters, then went over to the other side of the street and gave a few autographs.

He went on and finally arrived at our level. Sadly the promotion cars had meantime parked between us and the Red Carpet. Alan went alongside them and nearly passed us. Some screamed “Alan, Alan, Alan!” and he waved casually in our direction. Then he seemed to vanish.

 

Suddenly my daughter let out a loud scream “Please, sir. Please!” so desperately, he stopped, turned around, passed through the cars and ….

Then stood directly in front of me.

(Maybe he thought she would suicide, if he wouldn’t come over to her)

I thought I would faint. He first gave my daughter an autograph then me. We had photos from the Tribecca Festival with us and he seemed to wonder about that.

Then he straightened and said in a really, really scary voice: “Put away your Harry Potter Books!” so no one, we could see, had one.

Before I could stop, I said “We wouldn’t dare!” which makes him look at me, a little, little smile twitches in his lips and he winks. Then he went away.

 

11.30h. the six of us drove to the “Residenz” where the After-Show Party took place. As it was raining heavily we searched a dry place under the arcades and after seeing the whole people, who were in the cinema (about 2.000) passing by, Alan arrived. He first gave the reporters some minutes (in the pouring rain) to take photographs, then walked straight in front of us into the building. Also so we tried to follow, hadn’t a chance.

 

12.30h: We decided to wait in his hotel and first went in the bar to have a drink. Then three two girls had to go and we brought them to the station. My daughter, my friend from Nuremberg and I discussed and actually decided to go home. But my friend hadn’t got an autograph because some very rude people pushed her against the barrier; she lost her pencil and nearly got broken some rips. So, although on our way home, I turned and we got back to the hotel. There we met another fan from a forum I’m member in and they told us, Alan hadn’t meanwhile passed by. So we stood an, waited. At 2.30h in a promotion car with a couple arrived a very tired, very exhausted Alan.  The other woman asked carefully “Mind if I take a photograph?” and only for seconds, he put up a bit of a tormented smile, then set foot in the hotel. My friend followed him and apologized: “Sorry, I know it’s a bit late, but would you give me an autograph?” He wrote slowly and carefully, then handed her back the book (The perfume) said quietly “Good night!” then entered the hotel, fetched his key and vanished in the lift. We stood and watched him disappear. *sighs deeply*

What is the Grauniad going on about (so called because of their inability to proof read anything properly), he (has to be) can't imagine why middle aged women want to accost Alex all the time, obviously never lurked on here then! The review in today's Telegraph is only so-so, can't do a link here, sorry, basically says it fails to avoid being maudlin, but I think this is just a reprint of the review from the Berlin film festival, it looks familiar.

 

Plenty on BBC Radio1 this morning about the new Robin Hood kids series starting on BBC1 next month, Keith Allen (well-known semi-heavy-type parts TV actor) is playing the Sherriff, sound-bite quotes him as doing a "cross between Alan Rickman and Blackadder." Hmm!

Hey there everyone,

Sorry been away and been very busy with my work..

Well,having just sat down to read the papers,I must say that the only bad review that Snowcake has had over here is from the upper class Guardian paper,which is usually a good paper,but lately it has slipped further down my reading list as good journalism,shame that they could only write negative points and not see the beauty of this film,as for the other papers,it has had raving reviews and may I say,great coverage from the major radio stations over here too....

Both Radio 1 and 2 are giving it top marks and again,I hear of awards being mentioned,which would be wonderful for all those involved in the film...

The Mail reviewer said the film was wonderful but might suffer from the big screen effect,said that if it was on the small screen,it would have walked away with a tonne of awards,but may suffer from the higher box office films out there,but it is a great film and sometimes a small film can make a big dent to higher box office films....

I am looking forward to seeing this film very much,but am very dissapointed that it is not nationwide yet,I can only hope that it gets distributed when they realise how popular it will be....

Thanks for all the updates,and here is to some very good Mr Rickman films coming this year and next....

It's ten to two here, and ten to one in London, I have that strange feeling I was at the French Riviera (dans le Midi!) and not in allegedly "rainy" England. These four days were just hilarious...Tanja and I met so many fantastic people- first and foremost PEEK, then Susan and her daughter, Sue and her friend, then a lovely young lady who approached me in front of the cinema (it was RickiNicki) asking me about my "Freiburg adventure" back in June right after I just stood one metre in front of AR's car when he came out of it, both he and me looking at each other with that second of thinking "do I know her/him from somewhere?" - good grief, it was overwhelming and therefore, dear RickiNicki, I have to apologize for having been completely absent minded, I didn't really understand what was going on, lol...(where were you afterwards???), then all these English men who drove us through London with a Mercedes convertible, going out with us (fantastic food) and Teh Night with Peek, hihihi - this morning I took some more pictures from our hotel and the surroundings and the postman...lol. BTW, our hotel has a huge garden = The Hyde Park..I know you want to know more about our Evening, but I have to go to bed now and tomorrow I am going to think seriously (can I ever be serious?) about Tuesday and write a report.

I must have missed Emily's post about possibility of AR on Extras. Can anybody point it out to me? The new series starts next week so I am guessing they are talking about a third series?  I never watched The Office but adore Extras. The Kate Winslet episode was a hoot as was the Patrick Stewart one. I believe Orlando Bloom is in the first one next week.

Heck, NO one will look as good as Alan Rickman at 60 (and beyond).  Well, maybe Frank Sinatra back in the day.

 

I'm going to try to insert a Ronan picture which might give you a bit more insite as to why people (me included) think Ronan Vibert looks like Alan Rickman... at least in some photos.

 

Oops.. nope, sorry about that, can't figure out how to insert it here... but if anyone wants to see it, e-mail me and I'll send it to you as an attachment.

We had fair weather before the movie premiere but now we got a thunderstorm, but I am at home and happy.
for all who want to know : Alan wore a black suit, black shoes ( polished as usual) and his old shirt with the safety pins. But maybe I am wrong, because when he signed my / his picture I was just looking at him.
He didn´t feel well at the red carpet, but was very patient with the journalists.

Hey everyone!!!  I'm trying to get back in the swing of things!  I can't believe all the AR stuff I missed.  I can't remember a single "AR flood" time that I have been so out of the loop.  I went through the back pages but I'll have to go back through them again and try to piece together all the happenings. 

 

 

A huge hearty welcome to "Me", Gemma, Jeannette, Helen, lxlandia, rickwoman, and Sexy_Snake! I hope yall are having a blast with this group!  Its hard not to have fun with these people!

 

Thanks to everyone for all the birthday wishes.  I had a good day except when I had to take Ryland for his first immunization shots.  His parents had just started really good jobs and was a bit afraid to ask off so I volunteered.  Ryland and I had a good time until after the doctor's visit and then he slept for the rest of the day.  He's getting soooo big!

 

 

Happy birthday to Maya!  I hope your day has been AR-licious! 

 

And....

 

 

 

 

Happy belated birthday to Chevelle!  I'm sorry I'm so late but I hope your day was wonderful!

 

Hikity!  I think TT is a little cutie too! 

 

ARdent, I love the little gif you made of AR in the Perfume wig!  As for the "nekkid" butts in that picture.  After finally finishing the book a while back (I think everyone remembers what a hard time I had getting through that book! lol), I felt like that scene would have to be toned down and there was a young man that was an extra in that scene that confirmed (on the IMDb board) that it had been toned down.  I'm with Alfan (I think it was) that said all those nekkid butts and not a one of them AR's!    Of course, we always have Dark Harbor!  *grin* 

 

Oh and alsoooooo ARdent.  Thank you for the Radio4 interview.  I've downloaded it but I haven't listened to it yet.  Thank you soooo much!

 

sue, I must have missed something about your surgery or I would have wished you well.  My sister had the same surgery years ago and she said that it worked so well that she had been kicking herself in the butt for not doing it sooner.  I hope you are feeling a difference.

 

Girl.....I can think of no other that I would rather inflict some pain in my freshly "surgicaled" hand than Alan Rickman!  First "footsie" and now this!  You lucky gal you!

 

Emily, I am excited about the possibility of something AR appearing on Ricky Gervais's Extras!  That ought to be a hoot!  Thanks for posting that tid-bit. 

 

Yulia, the pic you posted a few pages back was from his trip to Argentina a while back.  It was taken by a woman that got to meet him there in the hotel lobby.  She was kind enough to share the story and pics with us. 

 

Camerata and Martina! Thank you for the pics from PL and A&C.  Oh my GAWD.....I die everytime I see him in his A&C look. 

 

CatsPlay, thanks for the hi-res of the SC trailer, Perfume trailer, and the video that Chalebh found.  I haven't been able to download them but I'll get them sooner or later.  Oh and I haven't forgotten you.  Its just been busy. 

 

Hikity, Peekabooh, sue, L, and RickiNicki!!!!  You lucky girls!  Thanks to all of you for the wonderful reports from the SC screening!  If you think of things that you didn't post, please let us know.  Can't wait for Hikity's pics and video!  

 

GAWD, he looks good in all the new pics!

 

*snort*  Marlene, thanks for the story about Catherine Zeta-Jones.  She is such a snooty beeyatch (forgive me yall)! 

 

I'm off to get a little more work done!  I've missed yall and I hope I'm back now (time will tell).  I will tackle email as soon as I get the boards archived off. 

 

   Hugs to everyone!

In the pictures I saw, his nose looked fine--lots of AR-like potential.  My guess is dark contact lenses like AR wears to play Snape.

I just finished reading the whole interview with Alec Hopkins (Young Severus Snape) and this sentence caught my eye:

 

After being fitted for prosthetics to make him look more like the sinister Snape, Alec has been able to rub shoulders with the stars on the set of The Order of the Phoenix – the fifth film from JK Rowling’s smash hit series of books.

 

It HAS to be a prosthetic nose....what else could it be?

Sue and Peek, thank you!!!

Camerata, Susan, as far as I know, there is NO e-mail address of Mrs Melanie Parker. If it existed, all the fans would not write simle letters and waited the whole months for a reply!

And generally, it is so hard to contact Alan! Only Mrs Parker and even for that we must wait for a long time. Unfortunately...I think it would be more convenient if there were many agents of Alan and they answered our questions online. And when we write to that address it looks like we live in Hogwarts where are no morden technologies at all! But it is very enigmatical though.

Good luck!

Rickwoman - thanks for the pictures.  I hope you get to see the man in person!  Keep us posted.  Will anyone else be in Munich for this event?

 

Hikity and Peek - WHERE ARE YOU?!?!?!?

Good morning ! Thanks to Sue for her great report and pics ( I shook Alans' hand last year at Chelsea and he sure has a firm grip so no wonder you winced !! ). Thanks also to Peek and we're still waiting with baited breath for Hikity's report. I DID think about you all and was mightly envious !!

      Anyway I've been beaten to it this morning but thought I'd post anyway --- On opening our local weekly rag this morning ( Newbury Weekly News ) there was an article about Alec Hopkins who as you all know is to play the young Snape. He is an ex-pupil at Kennet school which is one that I visit as a peripatetic teacher ! Quote article : The older Snape is played by superstar Alan Rickman, who spent time with Alec coaching him through his role. " I met him and we talked about the part and he helped me for a couple of hours," said Alec. " It was a privilege, although leading up to it I was really nervous. But he was very nice ."

 

      Arr ! How sweet is that ? Lucky, lucky man and yes we all know that AR is very nice ( in all aspects !!! ).

Thanks for the info from the great night out,hope that the stiches are still in place

Did anyone in the UK see the Ruby Wax show last night??There was a tiny little clip of our man in there putting him a comedy clip of Dallas...They made her the star after she said that Alan and Ian Mckellen said she was a crap actress,and made them the co-stars,it was very funny.....

 

Am I the only one who likes his shirtI think its wicked that he still likes to wear what he likes and not what everyone expects him to wear....

Oops. accidently pressed enter. There is more.

 

Alec spent some time studying the other Harry Potter movies so he could mimic Alan Rickmans movements and gestures." I watched how he moved, spoke and the emotions he would go through. Alan aslo gave me some pointers about the character, how he would walk and carry himself, like keeping a strait back."

 

And a picture of our little guy........

 

I dont know if anyone can copy the voice of Alan as Snape but i must remember that in the movie Snape was younger and im sure after he studied Alan and talked to him that he will do him justice. I can even see a little Snape/Alan in him.........im game, go Alec.

A cute little quote from  Alec Hopkins who plays young Severus Snape in the Order of the Phoenix.

 

"Alan Rickman spent a couple of hours talking to me about the part and obviously that was nerve wracking; there was me as a nobody and then this famous actor.He is very serious about acting but he likes to joke around. It was really nice and it surprised me -I thought a big star would be different but he was so nice."

But I saw this:

 

 

 

and I saw him: Tom Tykwer

 

 

Now I hope I'll see him tomorrow on the Red Carpet and maybe later in a restaurant or Bar. Has anybody any idea, where stars tend to eat in Munich?

Did any of you lift your eyes from AR last night and notice Johnie Walker, he is sitting in for Wogan on BBC Radio 2 this week and gave a glowing recommendation to SC, said he hoped it would get a proper distribution so everyone would have the chance to see it (hear hear to that!) and then played "All Right Now" by Free which he said was used very well in the film which is mine and the present squeeze's fave record! So the PS has caved in and said he will come and see it with me, just off to check if Huddersfield Odeon or Wakefield Cineworld are going to show it.

Where are the in-depth reports from Sue, etc, what's this about stitches? Did he do a Dr Blalock on you or something??!!

I'm surprised it's not opening on a larger scale despite the adverts/reviews in the national press. Vue Cinemas website is saying it's on in Leeds for anyone up there, but check your local Picturehouses (if it isn't shown this week it may be on the week after). I feel annoyed for others because Swiss Cottage is closest to me and I can get to the rest of the London Odeons in that list easily.

Hikity is flying back Thursday, but I'm sure Sue will come up with a detailed report just before us. Sue and Peek wondered about what would happen when He saw us together (remember the footsie and elbow stories...) but I think no damage was done sofar (except for the moment when He shook Sue's hand, are your stitches still in order Sue?).

Hey girls! It's been a time I don't comment on here, but be sure I pass over here to read the site twice a day!

 

THANK YOU CAMERATA! Wonderful pics, if Alan can kill me more than dancing in "In Demand" he does with the Anthony look.

 

I was wondering what happened with The Search For John Gissing DVD release. Some time ago I assigned a petition online for it.

A brazilian friend who used to have an Alan blog on net GOT THE FILM. Some foreign friend of her sent the film to her, don't ask me how. And she "filmed a part of the film from her TV" and sent it to the email of some of us ('cause she couldn't make a copy to everyone on DVD).

Now she disappeared and believe me, Alan's John Gissing is one of his BEST CHARACTERS EVER! He's  more than brilliant. I still have something like 10 minutes of the film on my computer.

 

Anyone's got news from the film?

Cats Play...I agree with your comment. I was a little surprised when I originally read the Variety article, thinking that a) the multi-tasking between MNIRC & Old Times would have been extremely difficult. The January start date makes much more sense, IMO.

Carolyn -

 

Great find regarding Pinter.  That's more information than provided in the Variety article, specifically the mention of January.  Honestly, that makes more sense to me.  I couldn't imagine how they could ramp up for a play this fall so quickly. 

 

The variety article said that the play would likely run 'around' the same time as his direction in NYC of MNiRC.  I wonder if there is some expectation that MNiRC will extend past its initial run??

OK....So this blurb appeared at:

http://www.pittsburghlive.com/x/pittsburghtrib/s_468802.htm dated September 4:

 

"Harold Pinter, winner of the 2005 Nobel Prize for Literature, is taking to the London stage. In October, he will appear in the one-act, one-man play by his old friend, Samuel Beckett.

He also has other projects in the hopper. His play "OLD TIMES" will be staged at the Roundabout Theatre in Manhattan in January. starring Alan Rickman."

 

Now, is the article simply taking "dramatic license" with the news already mentioned in Variety, or do they know more concrete information?

    After I saw this photo I just remembered about "Night Must Fall". I was looking for the script or at least for the sense of it, and no solid results. Who could help me in finding some more about it? I know so little.

Thanks a lot.

USA 1 December 2006 (New York City, New York)



USA 25 December 2006 (limited)

And Amazon.UK can send it to you when it's available if you don't want to bother your friends.

I saw Midsomer murders too and yes he was sooooo like Alan. I do think he was trying a bit too hard to take him off though, he obviously knows there is a very strong likeness there.

here's that article. It doesn't seem to want to link as it's a News page I think:

 

04 September 2006 06:30

Guest house owners Sarah and Andrew Pell are off to the cinema next weekend, just like many other Norfolk couples.

But it is a special moment for them as they take 50 friends to proudly show them the movie written by their daughter.

Snow Cake has big-name stars in Alan Rickman and Sigourney Weaver. And the bitter-sweet drama, which tackles relationships and the condition of autism, has already received rave reviews after premieres at leading film festivals.

It was penned by 37-year-old Angela Pell, and inspired by her own life, which she and TV producer husband Henry Normal share with their eight-year-old severely autistic son Johnny.

This week the film goes on general release, and the Pell party will be piling into the Odeon cinema on Norwich's Riverside on Friday night to watch it.

The story revolves around ex-convict Alex, played by Rickman, whose hitchhiker is killed when a truck flattens his hire car in Canada. He travels to the nearby town of Wawa to pay his respects to the dead girl's mother, Linda, played by Weaver. She is brash, autistic, and will not let him leave.

The pair strike up a powerful friendship where he can tame her and she can help him face some of his past demons.

Bouquets have been thrown at Angela's screenplay - her first success after years of battling to be a writer. "I began writing when I was 15. It was dreadful poetry but I was encouraged by my English teacher," she explained

"When I went to university in Manchester I joined a performance poets group - the Live Poets Society - but I was such a nervous performer that I decided to give it up, and concentrate on writing.

"I wrote sitcoms and comedy dramas for 10 years, but just got a string of rejections."

The writing went on hold when Johnny came along, needing all her attention. The couple regularly took him to America for coaching in the Son Rise programme which has helped build up language and eye contact.

"Johnny can now make basic requests like asking for the door to be opened or a pancake. And he is the happiest person I have ever met," said Angela, who now lives in Brighton.

Then one day her creative imagination was sparked again. "My husband, who used to work in insurance, told me about a man who picked up a hitchhiker who sued him after a crash. I thought something like that would make a great start for a film."

Angela sent the script off to three companies, and it was snapped up by Revolution Films

"I wrote Alan Rickman's name on the front because I thought he would be ideal for the part. Producers normally hate that, but they could not think of anyone better either. And when Alan read the script, he was really interested."

The relatively low budget of £3m was found and the film was shot in Canada. Angela got to spend a week with the two stars working on the script - which had only minimal changes from her original.

"You have to get 'clearances' to make sure we don't get sued for anything. It meant a dog I called Catherine Zeta-Jones had to be re-named Marilyn," she added.

Angela was not star-struck by mixing with the movie actors. Her former punk poet husband co-owns Baby Cow productions with actor Steve Coogan, so she is used to mingling with celebrities.

She praised Sigourney Weaver for capturing the essence of autistic behaviour, after studying the condition and its traits. Although the film - named after her son's habit of eating snow - deals with autism, it was not written as a mission to explain the condition, she stressed.

Angela, who is now working on an adaptation of the novel A Patchwork Planet, hopes people will feel uplifted by Snow Cake which is "a heart-warming story, which is just about people".

Snow Cake opened the Berlin Film Festival in February, and there have been other glitzy launches in New York and Edinburgh.

This week Angela and her parents, with their gang, will watch the film in the humbler surroundings of provincial cinemas at Brighton and Norwich.

Mr and Mrs Pell, who run the Elizabeth House guest house in Sheringham's Boulevard, said they were "immensely proud" of their daughter's achievement. Her mum added: "With caring for Johnny 24/7, it was marvellous to even contem-plate writing a film."

I saw that and checked the listings to see that it was Vibert. It's been commented on many times that Ronan Vibert looks like Alan. He played a particularly nasty bearded character (a la Sheriff Of Nottingham)  in the Derek Jacobi mediaeval Cadfael series and my husband said without prompting "Is that Rickman?" He's got the nose but quite honesly I think he is really trying to to "do" an Alan rather than have his own style.

Alan fan and Sexy-snake.
He does n't replace Alan in my affections, :wink5: it's because he is so like Alan , I was immediately drawn . He went to RADA too and many critics report a true likeness to Alan Rickman not only in looks, but also in his acting method. Could be he studied at the foot of the Master !
He also did an advertising campaign for JAGUAR in 2001, and the pics resemble a younger Alan, the likeness is almost uncanny from a certain angle.

They are on 0ne of the Vibert sites. Have a look.

There will only ever be one Alan Rickman....and he's mine...mine,...mine... well, I'll share with you..ok?

Ronan Vibert does resemble AR, doesn't he?  Must be those Welsh roots showing.  I wonder sometimes if he plays on that resemblance--take a look at his work in The Buccaneers and you'll see what I mean.  

 

Happy Labor Day to those who celebrate.  I am working harder today than when I am actually at work.

Hi,
Forgive me for entering this here, but did anyone see Midsomer Murders 'Death In Chorus' last night...I almost fell off my chair... An actor called Ronan Vibert was in it and I thought it was Alan...the facial similaries are remarkable,even his mannerisms, down to the arched eyebrow were there, the hair, chin everything... I nearly had a fit of the vapours. After doing some digging, I realised I had seen him before..he is a very GOOD actor, done lots of film and tv, theatre etc and at one time was also being considered for a part in Harry potter...coincidence or what... this guy could be ALAN'S brother. He looks like a slightly younger ALAN RICKMAN, anyway, I am now a huge fan...wonder why...?:wink5:
I'll try to post a photo !

Anyways, rotten searches be darned, its good to find others who love Alan and all of his work as much as I do, and I can't wait to get to talk to everyone.

Hallo everybody, I am a bit in a hurry as I still have to pack for London. Yesterday evening was fantastic. Tom Tykwer, Jessica Schwarz (the prostitute with dog), his cameraman Ulli and his "dirt manager of Barcelona" Frank as well as his personal assistant who made the making-of were there and discussed the PERFUME for 3 hours. The film will be one of the highlights in 2006 I am sure about it. I asked TT about the reason why he chose our Man for the character of Antoine Richis. TT said it was his immediate choice. He needed an actor who manages to "fill the room", captivates the audience  so to say as he does not appear but in the middle of the film (Ali-Pat, you can count the minutes... ). He must have presence and be highly intelligent in order to create the threat and balance in this film. Alan is incredible, he said. The moment, he puts on these costumes of the 18th century he IS in the 18th century. He wears the clothes with a natural grace and elegance, his posture, attitude, demeanour is that of an 18th century noble man - there is nothing to correct. Didn't we all always KNOW THAT????? Meditate 

Well, I have to go now. Hubby took pics and a little film - end of the week when I am back I try my best to work on it....

CU all and keep your fingers cross that we are lucky on Tuesday as we were in April!

Ohhh, is our man crafty. Did you guys catch on how he diverted the Snape question to a Dogma answer. I guess thats one way of answering the question without his usual bruff " I dont talk Harry Potter". That was a good interview, Man i cant wait to see this movie ( I can wait for Purfume though) and Noble Son, i so forgot about that one.

I'm uploading my CD-quality recording of the interview to YouSendIt now but they say it will take an hour.

Meanwhile, two things he said struck me:

 

1) Talking about his late start in films he said: ". . . unless you're 19 and with fantastic cheekbones or fantastic other bits of your anatomy. . ." How about a fantasic nose? Or a fantastic mouth? (I could go on forever!)

 

2) He said he has 3 films coming out in the next 3 months! That has to be Snow Cake, Perfume, and Nobel Son, it seems to me!

Puddingdale: Do you mean the picture or the signature?

 

By the way I'm on the BBC4 Radio "The Film Programme" page. Nothing to be seen about AR. They'll cover two other themes (one with Michael Douglas ) so it's going to be a short interview with Alan.

 

About 13 minutes until the live broadcast.

My, Alan has changed - and he has lost the ability to spell his own name.

ARdent, what is rackafratz! It sounds Jiddish ?

Maybe, the guy whose review I summed up expected a kind of "porno" (the basic instinct kind of scene, perhaps?) - who knows. Naked people in a film does not mean that you see a lot and remember: still children can watch it (12 year-olds are children for me and I won't change my mind)
