DFS reports: We look forward to
seeing you tonight for the first film of our Autumn 2011 season.
Adapted from the novel La tête en
friche, Germain (Depardieu), strikes up an acquaintance in the
square of a small French town with the 95-year-old Marguerite. A giant in dungarees, with
low self-esteem and barely literate, he looks as if he could
anchor a zeppelin. She's articulate, highly intelligent, frail,
and looks as if a sharp breeze could send her floating away.
Touchingly, their growing friendship centres on books and words
– Marguerite's subtle love of them, Germain's inquiring wonder
about them – and the first text is Camus's La Peste, which she
reads to him. Gradually, his life is transformed through the
experience, and in turn he enriches the lives of the collection

Paul Reach reports: Stewart's

Talking of photography,
all our photos are usually less than ten days
old. We don't resort to "stock photography" unless we
specifically mention it. We have three
professional photographers working for us, together with a
couple of very talented people. What you see is taken
by us recently and not last month or last year.
In our quest for
Keeping Dartmouth Special we often give our photography
away, or charge a very modest fee.
