ll my adult life I have been a size 10 - until recently, when I managed to fit into a UK size zero. I have not, however, been on the celebrity maple syrup diet, eschewing carbs for a meal plan of water, lemon juice, syrup and cayenne pepper. Nor have I been transformed into a model. Instead I simply stepped through the doors of Gap and somehow the fat was trimmed right off my body. I realised in the changing rooms, as I tucked an entire hand into the excess space in a supposedly size four waistband, that I had become a victim of vanity sizing.. nplace It is now a commonplace practice of high street shops to upsize the hips, waist and bust measurements of theirr clothing umber while shrinking the number n’t on the label. If they can’t n change what you see in the mirror, they can att least change the way in which you interpret the view. Marks & Spencer, Gap, French Connection and Jaeger are just some of the stores where this slimming illusion has taken place. An M&S size 10 is now reported to be half an inch bigger on the hips than it was nine years ago. I call myselff at a “victim” because what is designed to flatter us act an into a purchase is in fact irritating con. The problem is not just that I have to heftt six sizes of every garment into er a changing room, never his shop knowing whether in this s to (or even from one dress o be the next) I am going to

Being able to buy a smaller size does not allow the overweight to be realistic about their size says JASMINE GARDNER classed as fat or super-thin. Never mind that by the time I have undressed and re-dressed multiple times, I’m not feeling body confident, just fed up. I’m left not wanting to buy anything at all. The fact is, if I am told that I’m a size four (as I am by Gap trousers, which are oddly smaller than the skirts), then a woman who usu usually wears a roomy size 18 is led to believe that she is a comfortable, below average size 12. This is a problem, because a sizeable number of women are

As big as you feel? Shouldn’t we be being a bit more realistic?

overweight. We’re doing them no favours in letting them off by letting out their waistbands. It’s clear from the current UK Channel 4 programme Secret Eaters that people in the UK are already in denial about their poor health: overweight people who are featured say they can’t understand how they got so heavy, claiming they eat no more than 2,000 ca calories a day while shovelling p pies and chips into their m mouths with unconscious a abandon. Meanwhile, high street stores are pretending that people are getting slimmer - helping n not only to ignore ex expanding waistlines but actually feel pleased with oversized bodies. When I explained to the s shop assistant in Gap that their sizi sizing is far too gene generous, he proteste tested that this is a good thing. I should be h happy! But I am a realis realist. If I’ve upsized, I’d like to know about it - and g get on a diet. The overweig overweight do not need to be flatt attered into feeling confid dent in their state of morbid obesity. They needs be told in no uncertain terms term that it’s big, fat and ugly.

Cannabis should have an age of consent too By Richard Godwin In a fascinating essay in this week’s New Yorker, the celebrated neurologist Oliver Sacks describes his experiments with psychedelic substances. He started with cannabis, in 1962. He was working in California at the time. After a few puffs, his hand seemed to grow, filling his vision until it appeared to be at once a living human hand and a cosmic hand. The hand of God, he thought. “My first pot experience was marked by a mixture of the neurological and the divine,” he notes. It was a bit like that when I first “experimented” with cannabis at 15, before repairing to my mate’s house to play Doom. I conducted still more lethargic experiments throughout my teens. Such was my commitment that by university, I felt the drug defined an important part of my identity – not a particularly helpful attitude. I have

long counted myself lucky to have emerged with a degree. Now I wonder what harm I did to my brain. The Institute of Psychiatry at King’s College has just published a decades long study, which shows that teenagers who use cannabis regularly risk adverse and irreversible damage to their intelligence. Around five per cent of a study group of 1,000 used it at least once a week as teenagers. Their IQs dropped by an average of eight points between the ages of 13 and 38. “The simple message is that substance use is not healthy for kids,” one of the study leaders said. “That’s true for tobacco, alcohol, and apparently for cannabis.” The logical response? Stop children smoking cannabis, for their own sake. After all, no one wants to become more stupid. But while the study would appear to justify our current

approach to doing this (shout “Drugs are bad!” very loudly) it’s not so simple as that. The research shows cannabis has no effect on the IQ levels of those who started smoking it at 18 or over. Would it not, therefore, make sense to regulate it for over-18s, like alcohol and tobacco? As it is, society’s hysteria makes the drug’s undeniable “cosmic touch” feel all the more thrillingly subversive. (THEY don’t WANT you to feel this way, after all). That’s one of the reasons that Rihanna appears to glamorise cannabis use, milking its rebellious appeal. It also means that teenage users are thrust into an outsider mentality, and come to think of themselves as criminals and future drop-outs. While harder to measure in IQ tests, the psychological impact of this is just as damaging as the drugs themselves. In some unhappy cases, it is irreversible.

03 DIARY by Richard Dickenson Most recently the British army was called in to help with security at the Olympic Games

UK’s dwindling armed forces T he forthcoming military cuts in UK are a great way to save money. But, while doing that, they remain an only-thinly disguised cause for great alarm. Try not to see the whole thing as an economically weak nation struggling to save a few billions. See it as a disastrous consequence in terms of its already alarming vulnerability. In about 2020, when they have finished cutting the army to 80,000 men there is unlikely to be any accompanying fall in the rhetoric that results in British troops ‘assisting’ in ‘forest fi re’ wars or in helping the governments [or the rebels] in whichever country next spawns a revolution. We can all see how difficult, in terms of men and materiel, it already is for Britain to keep troops in Iraq, Afghanistan, Belize, the Falklands, Gibraltar, Bermuda, Cyprus, and elsewhere. Imagine what a threat-

ened, fresh outburst in Northern Ireland would do. Last time it required 20,000 men to bring about a virtual stalemate right there, next door. And what about riots in the streets over unemployment, Scottish devolution or just for the sheer hell of it like last year in British cities. The combined efforts of police and the armed services simply could not cope if several of these things happened at the same time. There’ll be far too few men in the field. And make no mistake, those subversive organisations working towards that sort of end are very well aware of that fact. It is a strange characteristic of the Brits, as a people, that they seem swiftly to forget recent horrors and sink back into a sort of numbing, forgetfulness that is quite sure it can’t happen there again. Wrong. There is an ever present danger within and from without. To make matters worse, unlike

so many other countries, it has no militia. There are no significant, organised forces apart from the official armed services and TA personnel. There are no designated men who, at a signal, can emerge from their usual day to day work and become a reliable if loose local force. It is high time to reorganise things to take account of the present state of affairs, the approaching dangers and the urgent need to form a man-in-the-street selfdefence and protection system. In Israel every man of the right age group and plenty who are outside those limits, have a uniform and a sub-machine gun ready in the cupboard. In the US they have a local ‘guard’ groups. And they have far less cause to worry. In England only the criminals have weapons. The British public was disarmed for cynical and purely political reasons after a wild shooting or two. The reac-

tion to ‘Dunblane’ was shrill, disproportionate and disastrous. At one sweep the entire law-abiding sector, the vast majority, was deprived not only of its means to defend itself but even to offer token resistance to anyone wishing them ill on a personal or national scale. That, today, is more than blind weakness, it is sheer lunacy. It’s long past time when Britons must reclaim their citizen rights to own and bear arms. There will be plenty of volunteers for a new, unpaid militia. The cities may not provide many but the rural populations especially from the border counties will be ready to turn out, virtually to a man, if their homes, livelihoods and families are threatened. They’ve always been like that. I predict within a week 25,000 armed men with a car between every two could be mustered to patrol and protect. Local leaders and officers always emerge.

This is an extremely cheap method for government to finance. Compared with hi-tech equipment [when available] and a topheavy list of high-ranking officers and military bands to fund, the cost of issuing already stockpiled weapons and ammunition is trivial. But that new force would be a highly effective one. Slackness in drill, dress and discipline is quickly compensated for by keenness to get a distasteful job done and get back to real life. Echelons of parade-ground generals turning slack, overweight metropolitans into soldiers is barely successful and takes time and money. The spirit, dash and reliability of a militia would do more for a tenth of the effort and funds. As a civilised and educated man I do not care for the idea of a shotgun caucus, but we have seen the other kind and it’s not working. We’ve glimpsed the future, and it doesn’t work either.

Mari blast trial

million euro or 0.36 per cent of Gross Domestic Product was spent by industrial enterprises for environmental protection in 2010, the Statistical Service said this week. On the basis of the results of a survey, total expenditure for environmental protection activities in industry in 2009 was estimated at €67.8 million or 0.40 per cent of GDP. The corresponding expenditure in EU member-states is estimated at 0.43 per cent of GDP. By sector of economic activity, manufacturing industries reported the largest amount of expenditure, which reached €57.7 million, mining and quarrying industries €2.9 million and electricity and water supply enterprises €1.5 million.

defendants in the Mari trial knew of the danger posed by the 98 containers of confiscated weapons stored the Evangelos Florakis naval base, yet failed to take adequate measures, Attorney-general Petros Clerides told the Laranca Assizes in his opening statement at the trial this week. He was speaking of the alleged failure to act by two former government ministers, and four other army and fi re officials on trial in relation to the deaths of 13 people on July 11, 2011 when the containers exploded. “The prosecution will present its case fairly, with independence, objectivity and full respect for the principles of fair trial, with the expectation that it will prove successful,” Clerides said. The prosecution claims the six defendants were responsible for omissions or actions that contributed to the explosion.

charges concerning incidents at a Super Cup match on August 18 are being faced by Nicosia football club Omonia at the Cyprus Football Federation (KOP)’s Judiciary Committee. The club faces charges of fans spitting at the fourth referee, throwing things, shouting offensive slogans as well as those of political content (and) interruption of the match for three minutes. Team manager Michalis Kavalieris is also facing charges after being sent off the pitch due to verbal attacks, among other things, towards the fourth referee. KOP informed Omonia on Monday that the chief disciplinary prosecutor Aristos Vryonides compiled these charges. Vryonides said that if Omonia wished to respond to the charges it could do so in writing to the Committee, via KOP, by September 3.

researchers and businesses have been brought together for an international congress and exhibition this weekend at the University of Cyprus (UCY). The East meets West congress on innovation and entrepreneurship – from Saturday to Tuesday - links delegates from over 50 countries, from a plethora of scientific fields and innovative services. “The congress aims to create a strong forum where researchers and businesses using innovation and entrepreneurship can turn research results into marketable products and services,” said Dr Gregoris Makrides, chairman of the organising committee. UCY’s rector Constantinos Christofides said the way forward was to invest in innovation: “If in the next few years we invest in innovation everything will (be) better…”

Political animal Prominent lawyer Michalis Papapetrou has served in many political roles on the island. THEO PANAYIDES meets a lively footnote to Cyprus politics

“I

describe myself as a person loved very much by his friends, and hated very much by his political opponents,” says Michalis Papapetrou, leaning back in his chair with the happy air of a man telling what he knows to be a good story. “Likewise, for the fi rst half of my life I was described as an agent of Moscow, and in the second half of my life as an agent of the CIA! None of which was true, of course…” At 65, the hair is grey, but the face is still imposing – a long, narrow, tapering canvas where a small pair of bright green eyes peer out from between a long nose and handle-like ears. He’s a big man, both tall and stocky. Given his girth, his largerthan-life demeanour and slow, deep, authoritative voice, it would clearly have been a waste of talent if he hadn’t gone into law or politics; fortunately, he went into both. He’s a founding partner of Scordis, Papapetrou & Co, one of the largest law offices in Nicosia with some two dozen lawyers – and he’s also (or was) one of the most recognisable politicians on the island, his career swaying in a gentle 30-year arc from outright Communism to a position closer to the left-of-centre. He’s an expansive personality; he likes to talk, and he likes to laugh. Just a few minutes in, we’re interrupted by the phone. “Don’t disturb me, I’m in an interview,” he barks, then he hangs up and his face softens: “It wasn’t even me they wanted!” he says, and laughs delightedly at the absurdity of all. We do the interview in English, which in retrospect I regret slightly; his English is fi ne, as you’d expect from a man in his position, but it limits his rhetorical flourishes. I suspect we’d have gotten more tangents in Greek, and more hilarity. He’s no shrinking violet. You can’t be overly modest if you want to be a politician. He looks a bit disappointed when I mention that most people know him from his time as Government Spokesman to President Clerides (1999-2003) – he’d prefer them to know him from ADISOK, the party he co-founded in 1990 – but immediately brightens: “I was in the bedrooms and livingrooms of each and every family, several times a day,” he recalls happily. Later, speaking of political parties

He’s an expansive personality; he likes to talk, and he likes to laugh

and their client-based system, he recalls something else – a speech he made in Parliament two decades ago, urging fellow MPs to get serious because (as he put it in a memorable phrase) “people are saying that anyone who passes by outside the House and honks his car-horn, we give him a duty-free car! And I like that I see this phrase published, even today,” he adds proudly. A little vanity is a useful thing in politics. His life – or political life, which is almost the same thing – has two

obvious turning points: the turbulent mid-to-late 60s, when he went to Athens to study Law and “became a politically-minded person”, then the upheavals of 1989 when he clashed with Secretary-General Christofias (among others) and left AKEL, the party he’d served faithfully for over a decade. That clash was his single most momentous decision, in terms of political consequences; after all, Michalis was a big noise in AKEL. Still in his early 40s, he’d been Chairman

of youth organisation EDON and a stalwart member of the Central Committee – an 89-member group of whom, at the time, 82 were employees of the Party (“This speaks for itself,” he shrugs). He was one of the exceptions, since he had his law office and “wasn’t depending on politics, so I had the luxury to say my opinion” – and, with perestroika transforming the USSR, he felt AKEL too should transform into a more democratic party. Others disagreed; a mammoth six-day meeting of the Central Com-

mittee led to several members being expelled and Michalis resigning. He could’ve stayed on, I suggest; even behind the scenes, he might’ve been more influential than in a small party like ADISOK. “Or I should cease to be Papapetrou,” he replies gruffly, “and I should become another person.” So does he still have a relationship with President Christofias? “No.” Really? They don’t even talk? “Eh, okay…” he shrugs, as if to say some minimal contact is inevitable. “We worked for 14 years in the same office. I should say we had very strong clashes when [the other members and I] were kicked out of the Party. I even describe myself as a victim of defamation, of mud thrown against us”. After the expulsions, he heard of Party activists spreading the word in Left-leaning village clubs that Papapetrou was a crook and a thief. “In the beginning I couldn’t sleep at night. Of course, after a while, I couldn’t sleep unless I got my dose [of abuse]!” He laughs heartily. He can laugh about it, but it’s clear he still has strong views on the local dramatis personae when it comes to politics. His highest praise is reserved for Clerides, who was “a university” when it came to negotiating skills (though the skills he mentions – being patient, and slow to answer the other side – could apply just as well to all our negotiators over the years). On the other hand, despite their rivalry, he supported Christofi as’ presidential bid in 2008 “in an effort to contribute in removing from the presidency Tassos Papadopoulos, whom I considered a political disaster for our country” – though of course Christofi as himself had played a part in that disaster, fi rst in helping Papadopoulos to power then allying himself with the ‘No’ camp. “I consider that Christofi as and AKEL committed a crime in 2004 by voting against the Annan Plan, which – in my humble opinion – was the last opportunity to reunite Cyprus under the auspices of a federation.” So why was the Plan so reviled? Could it have won more support with better negotiation? “The ‘Annan III’ plan that Mr Papadopoulos received from Mr Clerides – and I was in the negotiating team of Mr Clerides at the time – was a miracle,” he insists hotly. “It was much, much better than the one Mr Papadopoulos, after strong negotiation, presented to the people to vote in the referendum. It was much better. And I’m sure that, if somebody honestly wanted to make it even better, he could negotiate further in 2003 to make it better. But my opinion is that Mr Papadopoulos was negotiating with an aim to be in a position to more easily kill it. That’s obvious.” The dream of federation ended in 2004, says Michalis – or at best a few years later, “when Mr Christofi as treated Talat as Denktash… and let things shift to Eroglu, where things are impossible”. Even after the Plan was rejected, there was hope; the National Council unanimously asked for it to be re-negotiated – but Christofi as (he says) hammered the fi nal nail in its coffi n by refusing to go to Talat with the half-dozen issues identified by the Council and insisting instead on

Close ties: Papapetrou with President Christofias

He supported Christofias’ presidential bid in 2008 ‘in an effort to contribute in removing from the presidency Tassos Papadopoulos, whom I considered a political disaster for our country’ starting from scratch, wasting valuable time. “And I want to remind you that just before the elections in the north – which Talat lost – the UN Secretary-General came to Cyprus and was begging Christofi as to sign together with Talat, in order to lock them, the issues they had agreed so far. And Christofias refused. Do you know why? Because he had one eye on the negotiations and the other eye on what the Archbishop will say, or his allies in the government – DIKO, EDEK – will say.”

e could talk like this for hours – but of course there’s one salient fact that goes unmentioned, viz. that the Annan Plan wasn’t just rejected by the Greek Cypriots; it was trounced. It seems unlikely that a slightly better version of the same Plan – or even a much better version – could’ve passed in the referendum, or (more importantly) that it could’ve proven workable, even had it passed. The sad fact is that Michalis Papapetrou is somewhat out of step with the man in the street, a fact he wryly acknowledges when I ask if he isn’t tempted to go back into politics (he retired in 2007, when he stepped down as president of the United Democrats). “You see,” he replies with a smile, “all the eggs I had for throwing against the wall have run out. So it’s obvious that, at least for the time being, the majority of the people of Cyprus do not share the way I think.” Yet he isn’t cynical. I’d expected him to be slightly bitter, but he isn’t bitter. Partly, I suspect, it’s a question of temperament. As already mentioned he comes across as extrovert and hearty, not a brooder. He reads, obviously (recently he’s been re-reading Marx, trying to see how his theories might apply to a Cyprus “where the real dilemma of the average working man is where to build his holiday home, by the sea or in the mountains”) – but when I ask what he does for fun he mentions sports, not books. He used to play football and tennis, but now mostly sits on the couch watching TV (“With a beer?” I ask; “Yes. Yes, it’s obvious,” he laughs, patting his belly). He and five friends also like to go to London – where they all studied – for a long weekend: “We watch three or four plays, we visit some exhibi-

tions, we drink a barrel of beer each, have some good food, then we come back!” I recall his description of himself: hated by enemies, but loved by his friends. He had an “excellent” relationship with his father – another staunch Leftist – and his own children, a son and a daughter, share both his profession (both are partners in the law fi rm) and, as far as he knows, his politics. Easy to imagine him being beloved and charismatic; even as a young man, he says, “I could convince people”. Then there’s his work as a lawyer, which was always (he insists) more about social justice than making money. He cites the case of a client who was fi red by Church station Logos in the 90s for being pregnant and unmarried; Michalis successfully sued for punitive damages, a victory he still relishes. The Church is one of his bugbears, as befits a proud old Marxist. That’s the key, perhaps: not just an expansive personality, but an idealistic one. Michalis Papapetrou is among the what-if men of Cyprus politics – something of a footnote, having never made it to the top of a big party – but in fact his political career wasn’t just about himself, it was about the politics. He loves the milieu, irrespective of success or failure. Even now, watching from the sidelines, “I’m a political animal. I follow developments, I follow things. From time to time – just because I want to open the valve of the pressure cooker – I intervene with articles, or some interviews in the media. So from this point of view, I’ll always be a politician.” So he doesn’t regret having wasted his time with all that? “No. I don’t regret anything I have done.” He reckons we’ll survive the current crisis, but the client-based system has to change. Parties don’t make policy in Cyprus, they’re just “offices to find jobs for the unemployed. To serve the voters, whom they deposit in the bank and every five years they collect the interest!” His white knight is the EU, in which perhaps he sees a new version of the old central planning – a vision of a federal Europe, albeit with respect for local language and culture. It’ll happen, he says. He’s optimistic. He’s a dreamer, I suggest. An idealist. “Yes,” smiles Michalis Papapetrou. “That’s why I dropped into public life. And maybe that’s why I dropped out again…”

06 FEATURE Medal moments: Victoriaa on the winners’ podium during the Olympics

Victoria’s secrets Why a silver medal means losing, and how no man prefers a woman with skinny thighs: Olympic cycling star Victoria Pendleton reveals all to JASMINE GARDNER

B

umping my way around the Hampstead Heath cricket pitch on a town bike, I’m desperately trying to catch up with the woman in front of me. It’s Victoria Pendleton, and although comparative to her usual pace she is merely moving at a trundle on a Dutch style bike of her own design, I’m falling way behind. “Ready for some sprint tactics?” I call from behind her - rather ambitiously - and she turns back to stare me out with a faux-fearsome scowl. If there’s one thing you notice about track cycling champion Victoria Pendleton on meeting her, it’s that she’s an incredibly good sport. You might think that now, after taking her final Olympic bow with a gold medal around her neck at London 2012, she’d be above this sort of messing about on bikes with lesser mortals. But if the 31-year-old is bored and fed up with my antics she disguises it very well. She laughs easily and I begin to fantasise that the two of us could become great mates. “I haven’t felt this relaxed in ages,” she says – an explanation for her demeanour. Quitting her sport has been a “massive” relief. She had been looking forward to the end of her competitive career for some time, “because of the pressure and expectation. I don’t need that in my life any more. I’ve dealt with that for a long time and it’s hard, it’s draining and it’s uncomfortable,” she says. “People have a certain level of expectation that every time I step on the bike I should win.” Of course, after a relegation and a disqualification at the Games, decisions that Pendleton “didn’t think [were] fair”, she claimed just one of the three golds expected of her. “It wasn’t the end I was hoping for, winning silver,” she says of missing out on the sprint gold to Australia’s Anna Mears. “Whichever way you put it, it’s losing.” But the pressure was not the only thing prompting Pendleton’s resignation. She “probably would have” carried on at her sport for longer, she says, but for friction caused with athletes and staff in the team because of Pendleton’s relationship with her now fiancé, Scott Gardner, who had to quit his job as the cycling team’s sports scientist because their relationship “could be seen as a confl ict of interest”. “There were times when I really dreaded going into work,” she says. “There were certain members of the team, people I’ve clashed with mainly

She had been through being with Scott, that I just can’t deal with any more… I didn’t looking commit a crime but [they] make me feel that I have and I should never be forward forgiven… There were athletes who to the were a bit annoyed that they have now missed out on Scott’s expertise end of her as a consequence of us having a relacompetitive tionship and I did get the feeling on a career for some time, ‘because of the pressure and expectation’

On to the next challenge: Victoria Pendleton has finished with competitive cycling

couple of occasions that they would prefer to have him, rather than me, there. It was said, although not in so many words.” Pendleton is startlingly honest. She has had so much practice at interviews I expected her to leak a wash of rehearsed soundbites, as so many other athletes seem to. But ask Pendleton a question and she answers it - properly. Of the fact that her old Team GB teammates Jason Kenny and Laura Trott are now in a relationship, she says: “They’re both athletes and that’s fine,” but her words are tinted with sarcasm. “I’ve had relationships with teammates before and it was really frowned upon, but it’s okay for them.” So does she feel put out? “Yeah, maybe, I do feel a little bit, because they’re not the only couple on the team and it’s just totally under the radar and nobody seems to be bothered about it. But when it was me, it was a big issue.” Pendleton laughs at the idea, but admits, “maybe I have helped them in going through that, I’ve created an environment where they can get away with it now… something positive came out of it.” Far smaller in the flesh than she appears dressed in Lycra on the track, Pendleton is hard to believe when she says, “I can deadlift two

and a half times my body weight, which is more than they [her male teammates] can do.” Her thighs, the slim kind that most women dream of, simply don’t look big enough. “I’ve tried so hard to build these bad boys up to the absolute limit where I would literally break if I lift any more,” she says. “When people see me in the gym they look at the size of me and go, ‘What?’ I’m a lot stronger than I look… I’m just naturally not a big person, which has pissed off everyone on the team, actually. They were like, ‘We want you to be heavier. We want you to be about 65 kilos of lean muscle mass’.” She is 60kg and last time she measured it before the Olympics, had just 14.9 per cent body fat. Meanwhile, for most of us, getting big thighs is surely the only downside of cycling. My 13 miles a day have helped me build up a pair of “Hoys”, I tell her. “No way,” she says. “You would be very lucky if you got big thighs and I would be very envious if that happens… You do gain muscle, but I think it’s good. Nobody wants skinny thighs with a gap in between.” Certainly, the idea that Victoria Pendleton might be envious of my leg muscles is a comfort. But then this is also a woman who says, passionately: “I love going to the gym, I love lifting weights, I love doing pull-ups and press-ups and core stability. Love it.” So she is a rare breed. On the other hand, she “won’t miss at all” drinking the protein shakes required to gain the mass expected of her. “Some of the protein shakes we bulked up to 600 calories a go and I’m drinking two of those a day in between meals… I don’t feel hungry because I’ve got 800ml of thick, gloopy liquid in my stomach and they’re like: ‘You must eat something’ … Literally to the point that I would be eating and almost gagging because I’m not hungry and I don’t need it and I’m just having to force feed it to myself.” That behind her, there has been much talk of what Pendleton will do next, but she hasn’t figured it out yet. “It’s exciting and terrifying in equal quantities,” she says. “It’s like, ‘Oh my God, will I be good at anything else?’” Meanwhile, she’s happy to pass the cycling baton over to Laura Trott. “Take it. Enjoy it, Laura,” she says with a tinge of irony, and laughs her hearty and newly relaxed laugh.

07 Brains behind the operation: Cotsios O Pikatillis

A civilisation in the middle of nowhere Join the Bananistas at a festival this coming Saturday that encourages all to think outside the box suggests ZOE CHRISTODOULIDES

H

eaps of bananas and a wild night out aren’t often a winning combination. But bring together a dedicated creative team coupled with a good dose of inspirational music and what’s considered the norm is turned on its head. Last year, hundreds flocked to the most unlikely venue as the land around the old Piccadilly restaurant out in Ayios Trimithias was transformed into a party zone for an alternative event unlike the rest. Bang in the middle of a rather arid, rural landscape, it was a sight worth savouring. And yes, the area was adorned with plenty of bananas as more than 1,000 people rejoiced in the very fi rst party of the Afro Banana Republic. Now about to stir the waters for the second year running this coming Saturday, things have been taken up a notch with an even better line up and an undeniably unconventional approach with a whole fictional story adding new dimensions to the occasion. “The key word here is ‘republic’,” proclaims the brainchild behind the occasion, Cotsios o Pikatillis. “What’s important is that the Afro Banana Republic is a community type of party inspired by community events abroad like the Burning Man and Fusion Festival. “We’re trying to create a ‘context out of context’ where people can get together and party in a different environment. It’s our own civilisation in the middle of nowhere.” Cotsios is a DJ who divides his time between Cyprus and Berlin, often spotted with his arms high in the air at some local bar or club, giving crowds the chance to listen to some lesser heard genres on the island like funk, afrobeat and gypsy jazz. Having played at a number of festivals both here and abroad, he also stands as the founder of the legendary series of after hour parties going by the name of Wintergarden in Berlin. Having joined forces with 15 freelance artists, the occasion is set to be bigger, better, and we dare say, wilder, than last year. Intent on putting together something that sets itself apart from everyday reality you may have seen the poster adorning numerous buildings around town depicting the guerrilla-faced, afrohaired El Presidente. Perhaps you’ve even seen the online video where the man himself is hailing avid fans

Afro Banana Republic International and local DJs meet live bands for an exciting line up of funk, soul, swing, afro and electronic beats. September 8.

Starts 8pm until 8am. €10. www.afrobananarepublic.com dancing to the hypnotic beat. It has now been revealed that the curious character is meant to be an ex-revolutionary and the creator of The Republic. “Last year we set up the basis of this fictional story and now we’re giving meanings behind it; El Presidente is a man who picks out elements of culture from the past and introduces them to a new world as crowds are encouraged to join the heroes of the Bananistas movement,” explains Cotsios. Fictional elements aside, what exactly can crowds expect this year? “After having more time to plan things we’ve created lots more conceptual surprises and interesting structural elements,” he lets on.

El Presidente is a man who picks out elements of culture from the past and introduces them to a new world as crowds are encouraged to join the heroes of the Bananistas movement As for the artistic group involved in bringing everything together, there’s a real mix of talents including graphic designers, architects, fi lm producers, sculptors, musicians and fashion designers. Busy with sculptures and art that will adorn the festival area, the whole thing is set to create a real visual buzz. With the music undoubtedly standing as the main highlight of the event, local and international DJs will join forces with live bands. “We’ve really paid so much attention to detail, making sure the music flows organically,” points out Cotsios. From funk and swing to jazz and afrobeat, the night will then culminate in electronic beats. There isn’t a second we haven’t thought of.” Adamant on raising the bar when it comes to quality music while aiming to provide something different to what most people hear on a regular night out, the goal is to promote re-

ally good music with a whole mix of genres. As for the specific line up, the party will start off with the local Funkystratt, to be followed by a DJ set by Koulla P Katsikoronou, topped off by the Athenian Swing Shoes playing their beats. Then come plenty of sets with special guests including Teknon Brutus, Neco and Didier Dlb from Berlin with a whole host of other familiar names on the list featuring the likes of Cotsios himself, Tony Cusack, Mr Fox and VJ Static Noise. “People in Cyprus are often sat-

isfied with very poor standards but we’re trying to show just how high these standards can be,” insists Cotsios. “This is something new and alternative. It’s about developing an internationally recognised creative scene.” With an emphasis on trying to get crowds to start the party early, there’ll be nibbles to indulge in while rumour has it that organisers have created a special cocktail exclusively for this night. “I won’t say too much but food will be a fusion of Spanish revolution mixed in with traditional Cypriot elements,” Cotsios says. With a plan for the event to take on new proportions as the years go by, last year’s occasion attracted the attention of the Nicosia Municipality, with the Afro Banana team now working on a proposal for Nicosia 2017 (European Capital of Culture) as they develop ideas within a specific five year plan to really put Cyprus on the map of European Festivals. “We believe in stimulating a greater understanding of the alternative scene among Cypriots by establishing a relationship with networks of artists abroad. A great exchange is already happening with Berlin. We’re on a really good path.” And when it comes to this specific path, it’s one that’s quite literally lined with a few home grown bananas.


08 TRAVEL

A river runs through it E HANNAH NATHANSON goes off the beaten track at a Slovenian mountain retreat

very country has a fanciful literary claim. Slovenia’s is that Dante found inspiration for The Divine Comedy’s Inferno while sitting outside a cave in the Tolminka Gorge, in the enchanting Triglav National Park. Whatever demons the exiled poet might have imagined in the gorge, he could well have pictured Paradiso not far away, on a meadowy plateau 900m up in the Prealps on the country’s Italian border. It was, at least, a vision shared by beatnik couple Katya and Bojan Roš, who reincarnated the plateau eight years ago, transforming it from an old ski resort into a mountainside retreat, calling it Nebesa, meaning heaven in Slovenian. Like most celestial settings, Nebesa has guardian angels, two bear-like Newfoundlands, Pupa and Lola, who lumbered up to greet us when we arrived on a sizzling blue-sky day. Made up of four chalets and an Lshaped communal area, which houses a wellness centre with a sauna and pool, Nebesa’s layout mirrors that of a traditional mountain hamlet. The chalets, perched neatly in a row overlooking the lush Soca Valley and

flowing local wine. We carried our booty back to our balcony and settled in against a backdrop of shooting stars and mysterious mountain sounds. However comfortable your hay house, lie-ins are for wimps in the mountains. We woke at five the next morning and began a two-hour ascent to the Planina Matajur, an alpine milking parlour. When we arrived, any sense of smugness at our early start was quickly dispelled by Rok and his three co-workers, who had already milked 54 cows and prepared the day’s fi rst batch of cheese. Rok, who at 25 is the region’s youngest cheesemonger and a local heartthrob, offered us the fi rst of many shots of schnapps: “to kill any bacteria and calm the nerves”. By midday we were part of the team, merrily scrubbing hundreds of wheels of cheese, leaving them out to dry in the blazing sun. Having made our very small mark on local cheese production, we got to sample more of it that evening. A short drive from Nebesa,

We woke at five in the morning and began a two-hour ascent to the Planina Matajur, an alpine milking parlour down into the Soca Valley, the town of Kobarid is a culinary centre and home to Hiša Franko, Slovenia’s answer to The Fat Duck. The adventurous tasting menu was an ode to local produce. We ate trout from the Soca river and roebuck fi llet from the surrounding slopes, which appeared on our plate oozing with chocolate and sage sauce. Kobarid isn’t just famous for its food. Adventure junkies love the Soca Valley; there is always a flock of colourful paragliders soaring in the sky. We chose to explore the valley from the river, which is such a bright turquoise I actually believed our canoeing guide when he joked that the colour was due to a nearby nuclear power station. Radioactive or not, the water was fast-flowing over rocky stretches, which tested our paddling skills. In gentler stretches we jumped ashore, hurling ourselves off large boulders into the refreshing water. There may be poetic licence in Dante’s visit to the ravines and plateaux of the Soca Valley, but centuries later Ernest Hemingway did spend time there as an ambulance driver during the First World War. Some of the war’s bloodiest battles were fought along the Soca Front and are described by Hemingway in A Farewell to Arms. Many of the trenches and observation posts have been preserved in outdoor museums, one of which we walked to on our last evening at Nebesa. As we looked out over the intricate network of trenches, bells echoed in the valleys below, and it was hard to fathom that a corner of earthly heaven had witnessed such bloodshed. The next day we left Nebesa and Katya wished us “happy floating” as we pulled ourselves away from the alpine paradise and, like the paragliders, drifted back to earth.

Witnessing luxury cruising up close on the Silver Wind Media representatives and guests were recently able to see the world of intimate luxury cruising leader Silversea with an onboard visit to the Silver Wind in Limassol. Silversea’s vessels house just 132 to 540 guests in all-suite accommodation, including a personal butler service in some cabins, with cuisine to match. Easily navigating tiny islands, hugging the coastline, Silversea vessels can sail up a narrow waterway into the heart of a city, and tie up right at the pier while others must anchor off shore, or venture into smaller, less travelled harbours for a more authentic glimpse beyond the glossy postcards. With voyages to over 400 ports on all continents, Silversea guests take in China, Korea and Japan or go on safari in South Africa. There’s zip-lining in Costa Rica and wine-tasting in Bordeaux. Or perhaps you would prefer the eternal glow of the midnight sun or the scenic splendours of New Zealand? The company can even position its ships to capture a fiery sunset over dinner. Silver Explorer expeditions include Antarctica, the Arctic, and some of the world’s most remote destinations in between. The Silver Wind, like most Silversea vessels, offers a private verandah with nearly all suites, which you can personalise. A queen or twin bed? Down or hypoallergenic pillow? From Bvlgari toiletries to personalised stationery, and more; a bar stocked with your favourite wines and liquors – all on the house. Dining options centre on The Restaurant, where you can dine amid sparkling crystal, fi ne porcelain, candlelight and sweeping ocean views. Continental menus including specialties by Relais & Châteaux change daily. Other options include the only slow food restaurant at sea, hot rock dining, Asian fusion and a supper club.

6 tbsp watermelon juice 1 tsp Dijon mustard 3 tbsp olive oil 2 tbsp fresh chives, chopped ½ tsp fresh red chilli, finely chopped Salt and pepper 200g watermelon, peeled, deseeded and cut into chunks 2 pink grapefruit 1 large avocado, stone removed, peeled and sliced 200g cooked and peeled prawns, thawed if frozen 145g rocket, watercress and spinach salad leaves

 In a shallow dish mix the watermelon juice with the Marsala or sherry. Line up 4 serving glasses or bowls. One by one, dip the sponge fi ngers in the liquid, soaking them for a few seconds before dividing them between the glasses or bowls, breaking them to fit. Add any remaining liquid. Scatter the fi nely chopped fresh mint over the sponge fi ngers.  Set aside some of the strawberry slices and watermelon chunks for decoration. Gently combine the rest of them with the raspberries and divide between the 4 glasses.  For the topping, beat the mascarpone with a wooden spoon until softened then mix in the watermelon juice, stirring until smooth. Spoon onto the trifles and chill until required.  Serve decorated with the reserved fruit and mint leaves.

 For the dressing, in a large jug, whisk together the watermelon juice, Dijon mustard, olive oil, chives and red chilli. Season with salt and pepper.  Put the watermelon in a large bowl then peel the grapefruit, removing all the peel and as much pith as possible. Slice into segments, removing the membrane, add to the watermelon along with the avocado and prawns. Mix together gently.  Divide the salad leaves between 4 serving plates and top with the prawn mixture. Spoon the dressing over and serve immediately.

11 WINES with George Kassianos

What’s new from Italy

C

ellar and Bottega, the wine shop in Limassol that specialises in Italian wines (although there are wines from all over the world), has some suggestions with some new recruits from the north of Italy, and a sweet one from south.

Nino Franco’s Proseccos 2009 Nino Franco Grave di Stecca, Prosecco, Abv 12% I know many people who have visited Venice and have encountered the famous wine of Prosecco. The legendary estate of Nino Franco, located in the celebrated region of Valdobbiadene, has been producing Prosecco wines for more than three generations. Primo Franco, grandson of the original founder, Nino, professionally and lovingly moved this estate in to the 21st century, setting an example to other producers. This is an outstanding Prosecco, from a small clos on the slopes of Prealpi. This ancient origin vineyard is densely planted at 5,000 vines per hectare, with a low dostting age of 10g/l residual sugar letting e apthe pure fruit shine. You may be s but proaching Champagne prices p prothis is a top cuvee from a top m the ducer of Prosecco. Made from alled grape Glera, traditionally called ant, Prosecco, this is a fi ne, elegant, e. A gentle and mouth fi lling wine. aklot of care has gone into its makle ing and it shows. Brilliant pale straw coloured with plenty off fi ne, softly rising bubbles. It has a delicious sage bouquet with fresh fruit scents. A very pleasant dry taste at the beginning, followed by a growing silky fruit bouquet. Very good and long aftertaste, it is perfect as an aperitif, but is also suitable throughout the meal especially with the best of seafood. €28

ful and incredibly structured with tons of bright, penetrating minerality. Smoke, ash, minerals and white peaches linger on the dry fi nish. This is a serious wine best enjoyed with food rather than as an aperitif. Nino Franco makes some of the fi nest Proseccos readers are likely to encounter. These wines are loaded with tons of personality, something that has become increasingly hard to fi nd with the huge booming production levels the region has seen. €17.90

N/V Nino Franco, Valdobbiadene, Prosecco, Superiore, DOCG, Abv 11% A fantastic NV sparkling wine from Italy’s Veneto region. Soft, creamy mousse, subtle apple and lemon notes flow through this lightbodied sparkler. Delicious, it is a textb textbook Prosecco - frothy, fresh, pure, delicate, delicious sparkli sparkling white, tight flavours and ta tangy while the fi nish has oodles of cleansing citrus flavours. While it may lack the stuffi n ng of a great Champagne, it is th the perfect crisp sparkler to w wash down antipasto, all man manner of fish and seafood app appetizers or enjoy as an ap aperitif. €15.80

H Hofstätter Joseph of H Hofstätter Joseph 2 Hofstätter Joseph, 2011 PPinot Grigio Südtirol Alto A Adige, Abv 13.5% Before we embark on a description of this wond derful a wine, a bit about tthe Südtirol region of IItaly. Alto Adige, known a as Südtirol (South Tyrol) b by its German-speaking p population, is a wine-pro-

ducing province of farthest northern Italy. It continues to gain worldwide recognition for its stellar white wine contributions. These wines offer outstanding varietal character - focusing on fresh, vibrant, versatile white wines that promise and deliver on consumer quality and value time and again. Though Alto Adige may be known fi rst and foremost for its white wines, keep in mind that they also put forth several striking reds sourced from native grapes, Lagrein and Schiava. Founded by Joseph Hofstätter a century ago, the estate comprises extensive vineyards with five historic manor houses located on either sides of the Adige Valley. The most important of these is Barthenau, home of the famous Vigna S Urbano Pinot Nero - a result of Paolo Foradori’s recognition of the estate’s potential for world-class Pinot Noir. Today, Joseph’s grand nephew, Martin Foradori-Hofstätter, passionately maintains a delicate balance between tradition and innovation, producing wines of exceptional character and typicity. You can feel the brisk Alpine air with this wine. It is light straw in colour with pleasant aromas of ripe melon, peach, pineapple, lemon and freshly picked apples. Then there is a touch of dried mountain herb on the fi nish. Silky, smooth texture on the palate, crisp and light with lovely pineapple, pear and apple flavours that harmoniously intermingle with orange zest and almond notes. The fi nish lingers with spicy tropical fruit. Pairs equally well with light seafood dinners and richer creambased sauces. €12.50

2011 Hofstätter Joseph, Weißburgunder Südtirol Alto Adige, Abv 13.5% Italy’s Pinot Bianco (called pinot Blanc in France and Weissburgunder in Germany) is arguably the best in the world. Aside from some excellent examples from Germany, nowhere else does the variety reach the level of purity and precision it does in north eastern Italy. A mutation of Pinot Grigio, Pinot Bianco is more floral, steely and mineral-driven than Pinot Grigio. This Pinot Bianco has a nice

straw colour to it. It also has really n nice aromatics, with a predomin nant pear fragrance complemented b by honeysuckle and melon aromas. T The palate also shows a lot of pear flavour, but there’s more to this wine tthan that. It has complexity and character. The acidity is good, makiing this wine really bright on the m mid-palate. It offers some melon flav vours too and a spiciness that really m makes it interesting. The fi nish is great too, with stone fruit and mineral flavours, plus a lingering floral n nuance. This is a really enjoyable and interesting white wine! €6.50 (37.5cl bottle)

2011 Hofstätter Joseph, Lagrein rosé, Südtirol Alto Adige, Abv 13.5% Lagrein is one of the most ren nowned red varietals of Alto Adige, and is seeing a renaissance worldw wide. This wine is deep salmon-red iin colour with exotic fruit aromas. Summery, light, fresh, a rosé to wipe tthe memory of all sceptics. At once floral and freshly fruity but herbal, curlicue and scented, this Lagrein is a dream of a rosé and all the better ffor a gentle bitter note that lends a w welcome edge to the fi nish. This is outstanding with rabbit terrine but iin the glass I’m now hatching plans tto try this with smoked fish and pâttés for a late afternoon snack. €11.80

And finally something sweet A 2 2010 Feudi del Pisciotto, Bluemarine, SSicilia IGT, Abv 16% This wine is based on Muscat grape created from late harvest and k kept in used barriques and emphasising all the rare aromatic charactteristics of this grape. This strange dessert wine shares the sweet, syru upy characteristics of a passito and tthe resiny, caramel-like intensity of M Marsala. The wine opens with a dark amber colour, aromas of butterscotch and candied chestnut, followed by a sweet, sticky mouthfeel. It would be a great pair with moderately sweet desserts such as sponge cake, biscotti or apple crumble. €19.50 Cellar 62 and La Bottega dei Sap pori wine shop, Riga Ferreou 8, Tel: 25 745566 Limassol

US author aims to bring vegan life to main street By Elaine Lies

Piece of cake: Victoria Moran

When Victoria Moran was growing up in Kansas City, then home of the second largest stockyards in the United States, the concept of eating anything but meat was so unheard of that even the first salad bars were revolutionary. “People confused yoga and yogurt, and both were just odd,” said Moran, a long-term vegan. “It was a different time... more difficult in that there simply weren’t accommodations for people who didn’t eat very traditionally.” Moran, who was a vegetarian before swearing off animal products such as milk and eggs, found that her new lifestyle brought her

numerous health benefits, such as dropping nearly 30kg. But getting there took many years and detours, an evolution she has tried to make easier for others with Main Street Vegan, a book written with her daughter, who has been a vegan from birth, that aims to help people make a change that she admits can still be a challenge. “A main street vegan is a regular person who has a sense that for the sake of their own health, or for the animals that are giving their lives for this food, or for this very deserving planet, maybe he or she needs to do something a little bit strange and change their

diet,” she said. “It’s... not usually the way things are done here.” Moran mixes anecdotes, information and recipes to break down what may seem like the daunting process of giving up animal products into baby steps that allow the aspiring vegan to move forward. Along the way she answers questions about vegetarianism, including the best sources of calcium and protein. “Protein is in everything that grows out of the ground, it’s a very ubiquitous nutrient,” she explained. “You would have to really try to be protein deficient unless

you were in a state of starvation, or were anorexic, or alcoholic and drinking all your meals, or eating only junk food.” The social aspects can also be tricky, she warns, from dealing with well-meaning people who urge you to “just eat some meat” to soothing the family who feel you’re turning your back on longterm cultural traditions. But in the end, for those who want to, making the change can be surprisingly easy. “You learned how to drive a car, programme the DVR, and use your iGadgets,” she writes. “Compared to those accomplishments, going vegan is a piece of (cake).”

All culinary proceedings can be observed by the hungry customer as the Italian chef, Enea, goes manically about his business aside the huge pizza oven - he makes his own pasta as well occupie which was surprising for occupied, a Thursday Thur evening, and slightly worry worrying as we hadn’t booked. “No problem,” says Mandor ou our waitress who seats us at a table for two and slips us the menus. The place is full of women, dining in twos, fours and sixes: there are women everywhere. Inside I spotted a family dining, the woman was remarkably tall and elegant and the child fashionably turned out: “Italian’, said the companion, and she should know - her mother w was Piedmontese. There is a com comfort in discovering the nationa tionals eating in the ethnics - it is a ge general rule that if a Chinese

restaurant is full of its natives then, okay - maybe. The menu is in Italian, Greek and English; there are little symbols to indicate whether a dish is vegetarian, spicy or healthy option (can there be an unhealthy one?). There are 12 antipasti entries ranging from Bruschetta to Parmigiana di Melanzane with half-portions being an option; seven salads, and two risotto, one with seafood and the other with wild mushrooms. Naturally, pasta, ravioli and tortellini occupy a lot of space followed by secondi piatti, starting with fi letto and ending with lobster, with salmon, shrimps and chicken and chops in between. The rest of the carte is devoted to dozens of freshly prepared pizzas with too many toppings to mention; all culinary proceeding can be observed by the hungry customer as the Italian chef, Enea, goes manically about his business aside the huge pizza oven - he makes his own pasta as well. The companion selects the Gnocchetti - potato dumplings with four cheeses - and I choose the Cannelloni fi lled with Bolognese sauce, mossarella, and garnished with parmesan. In addition we order an Insalata di Frutta, which is not a fruit salad, but a salad with fruit - it was too sweet for my taste and expensive; the Gnocchetti was excellent but too much, as was the Cannelloni: it will delight the native diner. We drink Italian beer and French sparkling water with the meal although there is a good selection of reasonably priced imported Italian wines. I have given up expecting Zampone con Lenticchie and Ossobuco Milanese in Italian restaurants on the island, but if you want to try modern cuisine, visit Tavolino, you won’t be disappointed. The establishment opens for lunch and dinner every day and can comfortably seat 120 and caters for parties.

Havoc and Bright Lights Having seduced the world with her third album, 1995’s still astonishing Jagged Little Pill (it sold more copies than her six other albums combined), Alanis Morissette then spent much of her career alienating said world. Havoc and Bright Lights, her first album with a new label and as a mother, redresses the balance. Naturally the righteous anger that fuelled Jagged Little Pill is impossible to recapture (although Woman Down is pretty chippy), but her song writing is at its sharpest and most focused in years. Lens has a gloriously insidious melody; Numb’s euphoric pop rush belies its angsty undertow and if Empathy is a rewrite of her own Thank U, it’s lyrically less toe curling. She sounds like a woman who’s come to terms with her own success. At last. By John Aizlewood

The Olympics may be over, but we still have the Paralympic Games to keep us going. After the inspiring success of the London 2012 Olympics, it is safe to assume that the Paralympics will provide another tear-jerking display of human emotion and achievement. There are various sites designed to help you get to grips with the paralympic athletes and events - but Paralympics.org.uk is the official site of the British Paralympic Association, and therefore should be pretty reliable! Here you can introduce yourself to the 2012 athletes, find out which events are happening when and where, and mug up on some Paralympic history. There are several inspirational stories to read on Paralympics.org.uk if you need a little push in the right direction! www.paralympics.org.uk

Of Monsters And Men My Head Is an Animal This is the debut LP from the Icelandic six-piece who specialise in “fairytale-infused folk”. This should not put you off. It is true there are mentions of mythical beasties and trees that can talk, but My Head Is an Animal is mostly composed of darker materials. The songs tend to start with delicate acoustic strummings and breathy vocals from him (Raggi) and her (Nanna), but the drums, bass and electric guitar soon gatecrash this fey party. This is true from the opening Dirty Paws to the closing Yellow Light, the latter a work of some beauty. In between there are highlights such as Mountain Sound, From Finner and Love Love Love, and some less imposing moments, including Six Weeks (a touch of the Proclaimers here) and Little Talks (was the accordion ever a good idea?). On balance, this

Be the laziest chef ever with Jamie Oliver’s new home cook Philips has made the lazy-man’s dream come true with a gadget that does all the cooking for you. From slicing, to boiling, braising, steaming or frying, the Home Cook will apparently do it all, stirring as it goes. The idea is you set it and forget it. The

Rita Ora Ora Born in former Yugoslavia, raised in west London and signed to Jay-Z’s New York-based Roc Nation label - Rita Ora’s CV reads more interestingly than most. Disappointingly, her debut sees her settling for that most generic of sounds: sub-Rihanna, Auto-Tuned pop. Some of the lyrics are equally unimaginative. “I wanna party and bullshit,” sings the 21-year-old on her brain dead recent single How We Do (Party). Then, seven tracks in, a different artist emerges. Uneasy is a feisty slice of funk-rock and Been Lying is a beautiful, slow-building ballad on which Ora confesses: “I’m trying to figure out who the hell I am.” She’ll need to do so, quickly. By Rick Pearson

Home Cook controls the temperature for you, all on an automated timer, and keeps it stirring while you’re slouched in front of the TV. Once it’s done you can even whack it straight into the dishwasher for cleaning-free cooking. Jamie Oliver’s apparently had a hand in this too, but whether that makes you want to buy this thing more or less, well, that’s up to you. This kind of convenience won’t come cheap though, even if you don’t go for the add-on thing that slices and dices too.

14 FILM FILM REVIEW

by Preston Wilder

Through the decades: 1952 Here’s another instalment in our summer feature, going back through film history a decade at a time 1952 facts and figures: Top 5 Money-Makers (US): The Greatest Show On Earth Quo Vadis [released 1951] Ivanhoe The Snows of Kilimanjaro Sailor Beware Best Film Oscar: The Greatest Show On Earth Best Actor Oscar: Gary Cooper, High Noon Best Actress Oscar: Shirley Booth, Come Back Little Sheba Cannes Festival ‘Golden Palm’ (tie): Othello and Two Pennyworth Of Hope Seven years after the end of the war, and things were starting to get back to normal. The year before, Western critics had marvelled at a Japanese fi lm – Rashomon, the fi rst of many 50s classics from the erstwhile enemy. One of the year’s big hits spoofed the US Navy, courtesy of Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis. And Europe was back to producing great movies – tougher and grittier than before, with Italian ‘neo-realism’ leading the way. WW2 features in two of the fi lms on our Top Ten, but Hollywood had other things on its mind – notably, television. More and more people were opting to stay at home with the idiot box, and the movie moguls tried to fi nd gimmicks that would tempt them away: Cinerama was one, 3D was another – and, when all else failed, sheer spectacle usually did the trick. The year’s Oscar-winner and biggest hit, Cecil B. DeMille’s two-and-a-half-hour tale of circus life, was appropriately titled The Greatest Show on Earth. For cinephiles, Japan was the upand-coming country, with directors like Akira Kurosawa – who followed Rashomon with Ikiru – and Kenji Mizoguchi, who made Life of O-Haru. Britain’s Ealing comedies became international hits, as did French fi lms like Casque D’Or and The Little World of Don Camillo. Generally, though, the world was still fi nding its feet after years of trauma, with America ruling the roost. Westerns were big, of course – often imaginative ones, like Rancho Notorious and Bend Of The River. John Wayne took a break from Westerns to star as The Quiet Man (director John Ford’s paean to his native Ireland), while Bob Hope spoofed Westerns in Son Of Paleface. Kirk Douglas played a ruthless fi lm director in The Bad and the Beautiful. Jose Ferrer dropped to his knees to play dwarfish genius Toulouse-Lautrec in the excellent Moulin Rouge. Charlie Chaplin was back with Limelight but fell foul of

The Crimson Pirate

anti-Red hysteria, his fi lm pilloried due to its maker’s ‘Communist sympathies’. And a young actress named Marilyn Monroe got small parts in a couple of big fi lms, Clash By Night and Monkey Business. Prestige productions included Marlon Brando in Viva Zapata!, Laurence Olivier in Carrie (based on the Theodore Dreiser novel) and Oscar-winner Shirley Booth in Come Back Little Sheba. Superior ‘B’s included Scandal Sheet, Park Row and Angel Face. And The Sound Barrier glanced at the brave new world of aeroplanes, where a trip from London to Cairo now took ‘only’ one day…

Here’s our Top 10, plus 15 other films that marked the year:

Viva Zapata

1. SINGIN’ IN THE RAIN. Actually a tie for #1 this year, with two of the best-ever fi lms in contention – but we’ll give the edge to the screen’s greatest, most hilarious musical, sadly ignored by too many (foolish) people who claim they don’t like musicals. Joyous numbers include ‘Mak ake ’Em m Laugh’, ‘Good ‘ ood Morning’ ‘G M rning’ Mo ‘Make an nd the title tiitl tle song. so ong n . And and r member: “Dignity! re “Dig “D ignity! Alremember: w ys dignity!”. wa ways 2. UMBERTO D. And speaking of dignity … An old man and his dog, both unwanted, wander sadly through a drab post-war Italy. Vittorio de Sica’s hea r tbrea k i ng drama takes this potentia l ly

Angel Face

maudlin material and never puts a foot wrong, emphasising mundane reality (and yes, dignity) over sentimentality. A flop at the time, now reappraised as a masterpiece. 3. FORBIDDEN GAMES. Go to YouTube. Do a search for Narciso Yepes’ famous guitar theme. Now imagine that heartstring-tugging music over a poignant tale of two WW2 kids starting an animal cemetery – but now add a bold, counter-intuitive layer of rustic comedy, making for a tone both unique and disorienting. The scene where our six-year-old heroine’s parents are casually strafed by an overhead plane – and the girl’s dazed reaction to their deaths – could never have been played so shockingly simply a few years later. 4. FIVE FINGERS. During WW2, the valet to the British ambassador in Ankara (a perfectly suave James Mason) is a German spy. “This is a true story” says the opening caption – but it’s also an ironic joke, a tense thriller and a tale of romantic disappointment, and it’s unlikely that real life featured dialogue as elegant as this: “Tell me, Countess, why did you leave Warsaw?” “Bombs were falling … I felt I was in the way”. 5. OTHELLO. Orson Welles was broke, so he shot a little here and a little there, papering the cracks with pure, dazzling style. The result (starring Welles himself as the noble Moor) is a reminder that Shakespeare was poetry, albeit in this case visual poetry – a pared-down, intelligent version that’s beautifully spoken, yet could also be enjoyed without the sound. 6. THE CRIMSON PIRATE. “Believe only half of what you see!” warns the titular rogue, exuberantly played by Burt Lancaster, as we launch into a rousing adventure with large dollops of humour and a stirring score. The most enjoyable pirate movie of all time (Jack Sparrow? don’t make me laugh!), though actually more a combination pirate movie, spoof, slapstick comedy and kids’ adventure. Is it true you can breathe underwater in an upside-down boat, Daddy? 7. HIGH NOON. Sheriff Gary Cooper forced to go it alone against

a gang of killers in a terse Western drama, sharp on small-town hypocrisy and racism, shot in ‘real time’, co-starring a luminous Grace Kelly (she doesn’t blink once during her Big Speech!) as the young Quaker wife. Only the action climax seems a little tame nowadays. 8. IKIRU. Minor Japanese bureaucrat, dying of cancer, tries for redemption in Akira Kurosawa’s exemplary drama, taking a bold structural leap in the second half (when we barely see our hero, just hear others talking about him). The final scene – which involves a swing, a playground and falling snow – is deeply moving. 9. THE NARROW MARGIN. Cop must protect female witness from assassins trying to kill her. Hollywood made thousands of B-thrillers; only a handful are as tight and gripping as this brilliantly worked ‘train movie’. Terrific work from a no-name cast. 10. THE GOLDEN COACH. “Have you ever been in love?” “Like everybody else, your Highness.” “And were you ever deceived in love?” “Of course, your Highness. Just like everybody else...” Anna Magnani as 18th-century actress winning the heart of a nobleman in Jean Renoir’s wistful, sophisticated comedy. Theatre, vivid colours, and the music of Vivaldi.

Boys are back in town W e first see him in an armoured vehicle emblazoned with the words “BAD ATTITUDE”, on his way to kick the ass of some warlord-type baddies in a far-flung corner of Nepal. He is, to be honest, a bit ridiculous. His name is Barney Ross, which isn’t the best name for an action hero (‘Barney’? seriously?), he wears massive goggles and a mean expression, and he’s played by Sylvester Stallone who’s something of a cartoon character these days (maybe he always was). Sly’s face is thinner than it used to be, hung with stringy facial hair that gives him the look of a seedy, smalltime Latin lover. You can picture him as a Guatemalan taxi driver, fl irting with some nubile tourist in the back seat with a plastic statue of the Madonna hanging from his rear-view mirror. Fortunately, none of this matters. The first reason why it doesn’t matter is that Stallone isn’t the star of The Expendables 2. Barney’s the main character, and Sly himself was instrumental in getting the fi lm made (he also directed the original Expendables two years ago), but Barney isn’t the point of the exercise; the point is the whole team – the Expendables, a crew of ageing mercenaries living the rootless lives of “fighting men”. The second reason why Barney’s absurdity isn’t a problem is that Barney (like the team, and the fi lm itself) embraces absurdity. As in the original, the main charm of this sequel lies in the spectacle of action-movie stars of the 80s and 90s kidding their own former fame and ageing bodies, interspersed with splatter-gory action scenes where they prove they’ve ‘still got it’. It’s a bit like the Wild West circus shows Buffalo Bill started doing after he’d run out of buffalo. Sly is one superannuated action star, of course. Dolph Lundgren is another, playing a “chemically unbalanced” Swede called Gunner. Jet Li is another, though his character (‘Yin Yang’) disappears after an impressive early scene where he fights a bunch of thugs with nothing more lethal than a frying-pan. Jean-Claude Van Damme is yet another – and he wasn’t in The

Barney and his ‘little gang of psychotic mutts’ hang out, joshing and sparring while The Wanderer plays on the soundtrack

Expendables but turns up here as a villain called Vilain, giving his opponents “respect” but taking no part in their banter. Van Damme was always more highly-strung than the other he-men, and made his own comeback in 2008 with the nakedly confessional JCVD – a more troubled, ambivalent meta-movie than the good-natured laziness of The Expendables. Good-natured laziness is the watchword here. Barney and his “little gang of psychotic mutts” hang out, joshing and sparring while ‘The Wanderer’ plays on the soundtrack.

Jason Statham is along for the ride as ‘Lee Christmas’, gamely trading banter with Stallone though the banter wouldn’t pass muster in one of Statham’s own films (witty dialogue is another thing you don’t need when you’re old and iconic). “I hate to break up the bromance,” he quips at one point – and of course that’s another little layer, all the homoerotic undertones you can tease out if you’re that way inclined. Barney’s suspicious when a girl (Nan Yu) joins the team, and needles Lee about his fiancée who (he claims) is cheating on him. Is it misogyny – or is Barney just a little bit jealous? Oh, and note the final fight between hero and villain, the two men deciding to get physical and divesting themselves of weapons (Vilain drops his knife; Barney takes off his gun-belt) like unnecessary items of clothing. The film is a lark, especially if seen with the right audience; but The Expendables was an out-of-nowhere pleasure, whereas this is just a remake of The Expendables. It’s also very low on ideas (“You got any ideas?” Lee asks Barney, and gets no reply), the laziness extending to plot and characters. Only one scene is actually tense, a safe-cracking bit that

combines a ticking bomb with a heavy door to be pried open. Most of it feels like an action-hero version of Adam Sandler’s Grown Ups – another case of plot coming second to weak jokes and a just-hanging-out vibe. More than once, the film gets its heroes out of a tight spot through the arbitrary introduction of a Very Special Guest Star, another 80s action star magically turning up to lend a hand. This is the real, deep-down attraction of The Expendables – and it’s both a blessing and a curse. On the one hand, it’s nice to feel that the action heroes of our youth still exist in a kind of unofficial fraternity, helping each other out of bad situations. On the other, there’s something insulting when actors exploit our goodwill in order to coast. When Bruce Willis tells Arnold Schwarzenegger, “You’ve been back enough; I’ll be back!” and Arnie mutters “Yippee-ki-yay” in response, it’s like our fond memories of those 80s catch-phrases are being held hostage, forced to do all the work like the poor oppressed peasants digging for plutonium in Vilain’s underground lair. By the end, The Expendables 2 has taken the franchise as far as it can go – and a little bit further. A multiplex isn’t a museum.

filmsummaries The Expendables 2 Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone), Lee Christmas (Jason Statham), Yin Yang (Jet Li), Gunnar Jensen (Dolph Lundgren), Toll Road and Hale Caesar – with newest members Billy the Kid and Maggie aboard – are reunited when Mr. Church (Bruce Willis) enlists the Expendables to take on a seemingly simple job. The task looks like an easy paycheck for Barney and his band of old-school mercenaries – at least till a villain called Vilain (Jean-Claude Van Damme) intervenes; when things go wrong and one of their own is viciously killed, the Expendables are compelled to seek revenge in hostile territory where the odds are stacked against them.

Also with the voices of Peter Dinklage and Nick Frost. Directed by Steve Martino and Mike Thurmeier. In 3D. (Kids’ cartoon, 94 mins.) Our rating:

17 4th International Pharos Contemporary Music Festival Music festival showcasing contemporary porary ‘classics’, as well as over 20 world premieres by composers. September ber 9- 29. Olive Grove, Delikipos and Shoe Factory, Nicosia. Tel. 22-663871/7000-9304 871/7000-9304 (9.30-11.30 am daily). €20/€15 www.pharostickets.org

New works have been commissioned for the Pharos International Contemporary ff next week, says Music festival kicking off ES ZOE CHRISTODOULIDES

Quartetto Prometeo

Modern music

A

s cultural life on the island moves back into full swing, the Pharos Arts Foundation is busy preparing for a whole series of concerts that will give music loving crowds the chance to indulge in a top class festival that kicks off next week. The International Pharos Contemporary Music Festival is now enjoying its fourth year. The event is dedicated to the promotion of new music: the well-established masterpieces of the contemporary music literature of the 20th century as well as a great number of premieres by leading young composers from all over the world. Rather interestingly, these young musicians have been commissioned by Pharos to write new works especially for this occasion. Aiming to provide a forum for composers and performers, it’s about advancing and developing new projects while exploring new sound worlds in chamber music settings. The upcoming festival will diversify from previous years by presenting a number of exciting events throughout a three week period from September 9 until 29. Audiences can expect a seldom-heard repertoire for strings,

winds, voice, percussion and harp while six of the finest contemporary ensembles in the world will present classical contemporary masterpieces by composers such as Schonberg, Stockhausen, Xenakis and Ligeti. Then there’ll be the world premieres by young composers with

their newly commissioned works. The whole event kicks off on Sunday with a performance by the Arirang Wind Quintet, who will be joined by Marios Nicolaou on percussion. Established ten years ago, the quintet stems from the Junge Deutsche Philharmonie – one of the leading German orchestras of our time, which has also fostered the creation of new chamber music ensembles. The orchestra encom-

passes over 1 100 of tthe best internaintern tional mu musicians, chos chosen from the 25,0 25,000 students in 24 German mus music conservatories. Having been awarded secon second prize in the International Cham Chamber Music Competition Schwer Schwerin in 2004, the Arirang-Quintet was invited on a concert tour of Vienna, Brünn and Prague (Prague Spring Festival). In 2005 the Quintet was awarded 2nd prize in the International Henri Tomasi Wind Quintet Competition in Marseille and a 2nd prize in the Osaka International Chamber Music Competi-

tion. After successful participation in the German Music Competition in 2007, the Arirang-Quintet became a scholarship-winner of the Deutscher Musikrat. The members of the Arirang-Quintet are also members of major symphony orchestras in Germany and Switzerland. The seven concerts following on from the fi rst night will include shows by the Italian Quartetto Prometeo, the German Kairos String Quartet and El Perro Andaluz, the Dutch Nieuw Ensemble, the French Aleph Ensemble. Keep in mind that there are also workshops lined up with the Kairos String Quartet and El Perro Andaluz. As for the concert venues, they include both the Olive Grove in Delikipos and the Shoe Factory in Nicosia. Those who have been to Pharos organised concerts in the past will be aware that the Olive Grove is a world-class, open-air concert venue which aims to deliver relaxed and informal events so that intimacy is developed between the artists and the audience. The venue is surrounded by the idyllic forest of Delikipos and is adorned with wooden decks, shallow pools of water, zen landscaping and uniquely atmospheric lighting. What’s really great is that you can relax on the chairs, blankets and pillows laid out with drink in hand as you enjoy the ambiance. The Shoe Factory is situated in the old part of Nicosia near the buffer zone which aims to attract a wide and diversified younger audience.

Immerse yourself in feelings of nostalgia at fado concert A night that sets itself apart from the rest is about to draw crowds into the charming Axiothea Mansion in Old Nicosia as a unique musical tradition from the western edge of the Mediterranean comes to embellish the first nights of September. Local audiences can expect to be immersed in the distinctive feelings of nostalgia, longing, pain, happiness and love that are embodied in fado music. The unique tradition of fado will be presented by the young fadista from Portugal, Cláudia Madur, with the accompaniment of Portuguese guitar and classical guitar players. As the most famous musical genre now considered the soul of Portugal, Fado has been recognised by UNESCO as part of the intangible heritage of humanity, developed in the early 19th century as a fusion between the music of African slaves and the traditional music of Portuguese sailors, enriched with some

As the summer season draws to a close, both holiday makers and locals are left with the last chance to get a taste of Ayia Napa’s unique atmosphere. While the holiday destination attracts both tourists who come for a holiday of fun and locals who come for a getaway from the usual ongoings on the rest of the island, a natural division is usually caused in regard to which places to eat and drink. However, there is one place that both parties find themselves immersed and in full agreement with. Liquid Café Bar is a bar/restaurant that has gained a reputable name for its superb food and broad range of drinks. While it is nice to try a variety of different places to eat, the majority of Liquid’s customers quickly become regulars thanks to the great food with portions that will guarantee to fill even the most demanding of customers. The kitchen offers everything from sandwiches to juicy steaks made to precision, such is the café’s pride on the quality of their food they are happy to modify your order if it is not up to scratch. The bar’s interior is extremely stylish yet unpretentious; there is plenty of space, with TV screens around the establishment, stone walls and a cozy, old-fashioned wood stove. Liquid is almost like the calm amid the Ayia Napa storm with the bar area playing soft background music as opposed to the head banging beats heard towards the main strip. As well as the almost customary range of cocktails in addition to both local and imported beers, Liquid has an envied selection of old whiskies and brandies that can be enjoyed in a tranquil atmosphere. The prices represent excellent value for money, and despite its increasing popularity you are nearly always guaranteed a spot to sit down to eat. Its friendly staff are a key reason as to why so many first-time customers become regulars, always attentive and keen to be of help. Liquid is open from 9am until 2am seven days a week serving breakfast, lunch and dinner.

As the Limassol Municipal Gardens fills with life, everyone is gathering together to enjoy what was once hailed as the mighty fruit of the Gods as the yearly Limassol Wine Festival springs to life. The event has been a regular fixture since it was first launched in 1961 and pays tribute to the island’s long winemaking tradition. Inspired by the ancient festivals dedicated to the God of wine, Dionysos, and the Goddess of beauty and love, Aphrodite, it combines fun and merrymaking with ample wine and food as a variety of performances from local and international artistic groups entertain the crowds. Luring in local residents and tourists alike, the event offers an opportunity to sample different local wines as well as a whole host of traditional Riding for the Disabled Horse riding for disabled riders from The Red Cross and Theotokos Foundation every Thursday morning 8.30am-11.30am.

FASHION 21 Gild the lily: Topman Design Hard man: Acne

Patti Smith’s memoir of her bond with Robert Mapplethorpe has inspired catwalk and high street alike, says RICHARD GODWIN

New romantics S

The Paris Review described Just Kids as the ‘greatest pick-up book of all time… because every girl has read it and they ALL want to talk about it’

eems everyone in fashion has been reading the same book. It may not be brand new, but Just Kids, Patti Smith’s memoir, which won the American National Book Award in 2010, has been slowly capturing imaginations. It’s sure to capture more when the fi lm - currently in development – reaches cinemas. It is a very beautiful book, a lyrical evocation of Smith’s indefi nable love affair and friendship with the photographer Robert Mapplethorpe. Smith met Mapplethorpe in the Summer of Love, 1967, when she was a 19-year-old runaway, obsessed with dead French poets, and he was a 19year-old artist, very into LSD. “We used to laugh at our small selves, saying that I was a bad girl trying to be good and that he was a good boy trying to be bad,” as she recalls. By 1989, when Mapplethorpe died of an Aids-related illness, he had become the most celebrated photographer of his age, while Smith was the high priestess of punk rock. What comes in between is a story of mutual rapture and shocking poverty, fondly remembered, as they led one another towards photography and music respectively. It captures New York when it was dangerous and inspiring and Allen Ginsberg might take you out to lunch because he mistook you for

Topman Design

Kindred spirits: Smith and Mapplethorpe in 1974

a boy (this happened to Smith and Ginsberg was very sweet about it). The title comes from an overheard conversation. Two tourists spotted Smith and Mapplethorpe prowling around Washington Square, hungry and wild. The woman wanted to take their photo, believing them to be artists. “Don’t - they’re just kids,” replied the man, dismissively. The Paris Review described Just Kids as the “greatest pick-up book of all time… because every girl has read it and they ALL want to talk about it”. Emma Watson and Florence Welch were both reading it when I interviewed them last year. Walk into any laundromat from Dalston to Brooklyn and you’ll fi nd at least 13 “creatives” puzzling out how to be a bit more like Robert and Patti. Now, designers are drawing from that source. The Yves Saint Laurent menswear designer, Stefano Pilati, has a defi nite New York Seventies thing going on in his autumn collection, with his monochrome palate referencing Smith, and his kinky leathers alluding to Mapplethorpe’s portraits of New York rent boys. His collection is called Sex and Money. “Every night before I rest my head/See those dollar bills go swirling ’round my bed,” as Smith once sang in Free Money, dreaming of a world without it. The influence of Just Kids on the Topman Design AW12 c collection is still more pron nounced. “We were inspired b its lyrical romanticism, her by r relationship with Robert and t their early life together in the C Chelsea Hotel,” says design dir rector Gordon Richardson. The collection is tough and s sharp, all stiff whites and thin g greys, like Patti Smith on the c cover of Horses. There are also si shirts with a print based on silk M Mapplethorpe’s famous still life

of lilies. What’s missing, perhaps, is the sense of adventure that comes wafting from those pages. (Often, you get the feeling that the enduring style muses actually care very little about fashion.) Still, there is a lot about appearances in Just Kids. It is a Persian necklace that fi rst bonds Mapplethorpe and Smith. They spend a long time trying to hone their look, as it is an integral part of their identity, no mere stance - just as they hone their art for art itself, not in order to become rich. “Robert was concerned with how to make the photograph, and I with how to be the photograph,” as Smith puts it, inimitably.

Model launches 1920s lingerie line By Josie Clarke British model and actress Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has launched a range of Twentiesstyle lingerie for Marks and Spencer. The 25-year-old, who began her career as a model for Monsoon but more recently worked for American lingerie giant Victoria’s Secret, said she drew on her experience to create the Rosie for Autograph line of 33 “vintage-inspired” pieces. The collection, which includes silk lingerie sets, cami and French knicker sets, a teddy and a kimono

style robe, “encompasses the chic and sophisticated look synonymous with the Autograph brand, combined with the expertise and inspiration drawn from Rosie’s extensive experience in the fashion industry”, the retailer said. Huntington-Whiteley said: “To find inspiration for the collection I trawled my favourite vintage shops and flea markets in London, LA and Paris where I found a treasure trove of gorgeous clothes and ornate pieces of jewellery, as well as pictures and patterns found in old design books and fashion magazines.

“I was particularly drawn to the opulent elegance of the Twenties era which really shows in my designs from the sumptuous silks I chose to the intricate deco-inspired embroidery detailing on the garments. “The palette was not only inspired by my favourite Twenties pieces, but also it was largely influenced by the rich colours of different types of roses. From the muted tones of dusky pink and green through to dramatic scarlet blooms, I wanted the palette to evoke the beauty of a gorgeous British garden in summer.”

22 BEAUTY

Beauty’s gone boozy, says EMMA MCCARTHY as cosmetics companies can’t get enough of vine fruit

The grape escape W

‘Grapes are becoming increasingly popular in many anti-ageing products as the fruit contains a high amount of antioxidants and nutritional elements’

e all know too much booze is bad for your health. But apparently a hefty slug of wine won’t harm your skincare regime. Cleopatra was defi nitely on to something when she bathed in vats of wine some 2,000 years ago, because the beauty industry has hit the bottle big time. If you were elsewhere in Europe you could bypass the pub (and the hangover) this weekend, and instead indulge in the red stuff with the beauty buff’s latest love affair - vinotherapy wine spas. Championing the trend in the UK, The Vineyard at Stockcross was quick to clock that wine was not the only good thing to come from vines. Just 40 minutes from central London, the winery, owned by California winemaker Sir Peter Michael, is probably best known for its 30,000- bottle cellar. But the five-star hotel is ticking the box for all-round R&R with its newly launched ‘Grapetherapy’ package. At the heart of the offer is the spa’s wine rejuvenation treatments, including red grape body wraps, grapeseed scrubs and juiced-up fi rming tonics, all derived from vinotherapy products created especially for the spa. “Grapes are becoming increasingly popular in many anti-ageing products as the fruit contains a high amount of antioxidants and nutritional elements,” says Zoe Cole, a therapist at the spa. “We use red grapes in the body masks and scrubs because red varieties have a heavier concentration of anti-ageing anthocyanins, while the white grapes are much better for moisturisers.”

But The Vineyard is not the only one uncorking the benefits of skincare from the cellar. More than 20 spas in the UK now use ISHI Elements, a London-based skin food company that incorporates ingredients from Tuscany’s sangiovese, chianti, chardonnay and pinot grapes, while Caudalie has been harnessing the power of the vine on the family winery in Bordeaux since 1993. The brand’s philosophy for beautiful skin centres on the famous French paradox – the belief that the French have a remarkably low rate of cardiovascular disease thanks to their tipple of choice. Now, with eight spas worldwide boasting treatments such as their crushed cabernet scrub, fresh grape pulp massages and red vine baths in oak barrels, Caudalie is the world’s leading vinotherapy brand. While the hero ingredient for Caudalie is the polyphenol-rich grape seed, the boozy benefits don’t end with the fruit itself. Caudalie also discovered the brightening agent Viniferine from grapevine sap, while its latest anti wrinkle innovation, Resveratrol-Olely, derives from the stalks and features in five new Vinexpert products due to launch next month. London’s Molton Brown also has an entire range dedicated to the Ambrusca grape leaf from the Ardèche region of France. But surely the benefits could only be doubled by enjoying a glass of wine as well? I’ll drink to that.

Married women now seeking younger studs as their illicit lovers UndercoverLovers.com, a dating website for married people seeking illicit affairs, has revealed that the majority of its female members are now looking for extra-marital lovers younger than themselves, having previously sought older men. The website researched the profiles of all of its 663,000 members to ascertain their age when they joined and stated age preference for an affair partner. Since the launch of UndercoverLovers.com in 2009, a consistent majority of its male members have predictably been searching for younger lovers, while up to the end of 2011, most women on the site wanted to hook

up with an older man. However since the beginning of 2012 this has changed, with more than 50 per cent of the site’s female members now looking for younger guys to cheat with. Undercover Lovers spokesperson Emily Pope comments: “We are surprised to note this new trend on our site. For centuries it has been an accepted fact that unfaithful married men generally chose a younger lover, while adulterous women typically opted for an older one. Middle-aged Hollywood film director Rupert Sanders and Anthea Turner’s husband Grant Bovey, both of whom are currently in the news

for their alleged indiscretions with 20 somethings, are just the latest high profile examples of the historical norm”. She continues: “The spate of ‘cougar’ media stories over recent months, such as married, 32 year old radio DJ Lucy Horobin’s conquest of teenage, One Direction band member Harry Styles, may be indicative of the new trend we’ve identified on Undercover Lovers, or may actually be inspiring our female members to seek out a younger stud when their husbands are no longer cutting it in the marital bed.” Relationship expert and psychologist Dr Amelie Duval is not

surprised by the survey results however. She says: “Men generally hit their sexual peak in their 20s, whilst with women it’s much later, in their late 30s or early 40s. It’s small wonder then that older married women, many of whom will have already had their children and seen them fly the nest, should seek sexual and emotional excitement with a younger lover if they’re not feeling fulfilled at home.” Undercover Lovers member Mary, a married 45 year old physiotherapist from Essex, is secretly dating Tom, a 34 year old City trader. She says: “My much older husband provides me with all of the safety

and security I need but none of the excitement in bed. With my young lover Tom I bring experience, wisdom and spice to the relationship whilst he brings youthful energy and sexual staying power!” The majority of UndercoverLovers.com members are in their 30s and 40s. In the years 2009-2011, 83 per cent of the site’s male members were seeking younger lovers, whilst only 36 per cent of female members expressed a preference for a younger man. Since the beginning of 2012, 52 per cent of women now wish to find partners younger than themselves while the figure for men has remained more or less consistent at 84 per cent.

Plantoftheweek BY ALEXANDER MCCOWAN

Toxic plant used by Aztecs to give sacrificial victims courage Name: Ipomoea (Ipomoea hederacea) Otherwise known as: Tlililtzin, Bindweed Habitat: A annual climbing member of the Convolvulacea family growing up to 8m in scrubland and pastureland in the Americas and south east Asia. It has three or five-lobed hairy leaves emanating from quite a delicate stem that produces a purple, trumpet-shaped flower in the axils. The seeds are hallucinogenic and toxic, which has prompted the producers to advertise on the packets that they coat them with poisonous insecticides.

Fitness experts say more is not always better and overworking a workout can sap strength and invite injury. “We have fit people and deconditioned people who overdo it,” said Geralyn Coopersmith, national director of the Equinox Fitness Training Institute. “Exercise is like a drug, if you don’t have enough, you get no benefits, if you have too much, you have problems,” she said. Shin splints, heel spurs, tendonitis are among the common overuse injuries that Coopersmith, who oversees the training of personal trainers for Equinox fitness centres, sees. “Some days should be intense, some days not so intense,” she said. “Exercise is a stressor. If it’s too much, the body can break down.” Extreme fatigue, irritability, moodiness, an elevated resting heart rate, fever, and an inability to work your earlier level are among the signs that you’ve overdone it, she said. California-based group fitness instructor Amy Dixon has broached the subject of overtraining with her clients, she said, but delicately, and only when they are ready to listen. “I had a woman come in before my (indoor) cycling class,” said Dixon, creator of the Give Me 10 DVD

series. “I’d see her on the treadmill for an hour, then she’d take my class, then after she would ride longer or go on the elliptical (trainer) for another 40 minutes.” Poke an exercise addiction, Dixon believes, and you’ll often uncover another addiction. “Maybe they’re a binge eater, or they really party on the weekend,” she said. “If you’re working out morning and night, you’re over-trained. Your body’s getting beaten up.” For Dixon and her colleagues,

France winner. He said a lot of his job involves telling clients what not to do. “I try to keep them from getting hurt,” he said. “I design programmes on a case-by-case basis but there’s always a rest day. When clients want to eliminate it I try to explain that you don’t get healthier during the workouts, but during the rest days.” Jessica Matthews, an exercise physiologist with the American Council on Exercise, said she has referred several over-trained clients to

What does it do: There are nearly a thousand species of Ipomoea and they all share the same chemical properties, the main characteristics are d-lysergic and d-isolysergic acid amines - which are one of the constituents of LSD - and ergot alkaloids such as ergometrine, ergonovine and ergine, these latter also occur in the fungus that causes ergotism, and this is why ingesting the seeds can be so dangerous. The Aztecs included extracts from the plants in their preparations to coat the bodies of sacrificial victims to give them courage and to consume as an analgesic. Traditionally, the plant has been used as an anthelmintic, a diuretic and a laxative. It has been employed by herbalists to treat mental disorders, internal parasites, oedema and chronic constipation. In the sixties, the advocates of hallucinogenic drugs, such as Timothy O’Leary, suggested that the plant could be used as a substitute for LSD, which was causing considerable problems in the student community. However, they were unaware that large-scale abuse of the plant can lead to paranoia, strokes, abortion and most interestingly, shrinkage of the male sexual organs, this relates to the vaso-constricting nature of the chemicals. There have been cases of necrosis arising from the gangrene effect on the bodily extremities caused by the ingestion of ergot alkaloids. Next dangerous plant

‘If you’re working out morning and night, you’re over-trained. Your body’s getting beaten up’ overtraining is an occupational hazard. “A lot of group fitness instructors and trainers fall into that category because it’s our job,” she said. “I know instructors who teach over 30 classes a week.” Connecticut-based exercise physiologist Tom Holland, who has coached people in everything from climbing mountains to running marathons, has actually dropped clients who wanted him to push them too hard. “I have a lot of types that think they’re Lance Armstrongs,” said Holland, author of Beat the Gym: Personal Trainer Secrets Without the Personal Trainer Price Tag, said, referring to the seven-time Tour de

psychologists. “It’s great to work with other professionals to help them (clients) recognise that they might have a problem,” said Matthews, who is based in San Diego, California. She said symptoms of overtraining can include constant headaches, sleeplessness and severe muscle soreness, as well as diminished performance. “There are so many benefits to exercise, but if they’re exercising excessively even the greatest benefits, like positive mood and better sleep, start to fall away,” she said. Coopersmith puts in another way: “We are a supersized society,” she said, “but we shouldn’t be supersizing exercise.”

A feast of a novel to be chewed over and carefully digested By Melanie McGrath “We need to talk about our children,” says prominent politician Serge Lohman to his brother Paul in this dark, biting satire on middle class mores. The two teenage cousins have committed an act of grotesque and unprovoked viciousness for which Paul’s son, in particular, remains unrepentant and the parents gather at a fancy restaurant to try to formulate a coherent response. The novel is narrated by Paul, whose splenetic, green-eyed contempt for everything, from the pretensions of the waiting staff to the holiday preferences of his brother, provides much of the book’s bleak and bone-dry humour. And for the fi rst half of the nov-

The Dinner By Herman Koch, trans Sam Garrett

el, Paul’s internal rant is indeed very funny, in the way that being stuck in a lift with a strange cousin of Alf Garnett might be funny, not least because you know it will eventually end. Which it duly does, and when the main course arrives, and we get to the meat of the story, the mood darkens and the book takes an altogether more complex turn. By pudding we are firmly in psychological thriller territory and all the better for it. If the interest in the fi rst half is all in the voice of Paul, in the final third of the book the action takes over and the novel’s build-up to its spine chillingly brilliant ending makes it easy to forgive the multiple implausibilities of the plot (among them the unlikelihood of two sets of parents, including a

prominent and widely recognised public figure, choosing to discuss a serious crime committed by their respective sons in the very exposed surroundings of a restaurant) and just go along for the ride. Like its more accomplished literary stablemates, The Slap and We Need to Talk about Kevin, The Dinner is a conversation piece as much as a novel, as designed to be chewed over among friends as it is to be read alone. Which is not to underplay its literary merits. The very peculiar toxicity of Paul’s voice and the luscious build-up of suspense towards the denouement are alone worth the price (and the reading) of the book but The Dinner is more compelling still for the questions it asks about loyalty, morality, sibling

rivalry and parental responsibility. “How far would you go to protect the ones you love?” teases the jacket, but this misses the point, because the really shocking secret of Koch’s world is that, for Paul at least, we fi nd ourselves way beyond love, in tribal territory where the unconscious narcissistic pull of genetic heritage holds sway and the phrase “like father, like son” takes on a grim, unswerving dynamic all its own. It makes for a discomforting, absorbing read. I’m confidently predicting that The Dinner will become this summer’s literary talk of the town - and the Twittersphere - in the UK, as it already is in Continental Europe, where the novel has sold more than a million copies. Order yours now.

Rendell revels in man’s appetites and absurdities By Mark Sanderson Victoria is the latest corner of the British capital to be examined by the beady eyes of Dame Ruth. She tells us in the fi rst line that it is where the Queen lives, yet most of the action occurs in the palaces of Hexam Place, a succession of mini mansions that need an army of hired help to maintain. Their brilliant white stucco may present a spotless façade but behind it both masters and servants indulge in all manner of black deeds. June, the aged retainer of an even older fake princess, founds the Saint Zita Society in a local pub to protect the neighbourhood (from dog waste and smokers) and the rights of those who live below stairs. Zita is the patron saint of domestic servants. However, it soon becomes merely a glorified gossip shop where chauffeurs, au pairs and cleaners can drink and swap tales of sin. The subjects of such tittle-tattle include a lord whose dishy driver is servicing both his wife and daughter; an insurance magnate whose wife is playing away with a soap star, and a pair of stuck-up queens. Rendell follows the lives of at least a dozen characters as they collide and divide over one winter. It is no coincidence that only one of them - an urban fox – appears on the cover. This novel is Rendell’s version of Volpone and it displays all of Jonson’s delight and disgust at the appetites and absurdities of humankind. Rendell notices how dandruff drifts onto an old woman’s toast; points out that the victims of stabbings are always portrayed as saints instead of “slimeballs”; is all too aware that luck rewards vice as much as virtue. To read her nowadays is akin to quaffi ng a glass of what the fake princess calls “TDTINW” - the drink that is never wrong - champagne. She is exhilarating, makes you giggle yet leaves you with an acidic aftertaste.

The Saint Zita Society By Ruth Rendell

Blame the rich When I met Joseph Stiglitz I remember being struck by how he was not as other economists. The ones I know tend to be benign creatures, rather jolly, able to laugh at the world and its, and their, mistakes. Not so Stiglitz. The American Nobel Prize-winner had about him a raw fury. He was livid with the state of the global economy - and equally, he appeared just as angry that his view was not widely shared. From childhood in Gary, Indiana, he’s been consumed by unfairness and cruelty, of the sort that consigns workers in his native, predominantly steel, town to unemployment. When he eventually studied economics at Amherst and MIT, he determined that “none of the conclusions of neoclassical theory seemed to make sense to me”. Firmly in his sights were the free marketeers, the Chicago school propounders of laissez-faire, minimal state intervention and pro-privatisation. In 2001, he was awarded the Nobel Prize for co-authoring a study showing that, far from being pure, the supposedly free markets are open to abuse and manipulation, resulting in harm and provoking government action. Then came Making Globalization Work, his bestselling book in which he accused wealthy nations of letting the markets work to their benefit - and

For unenlightened bankers and their super-rich friends this makes uncomfortable reading says CHRIS BLACKHURST widening the gap between the rich and poor countries. That was followed by Freefall, an attack on bankers and a system that rewards them with bonuses for, in effect, behaving badly. The balance of the economy tilted in the bankers’ favour: they were able to recruit the most talented people because they paid the most, so other industries suffered. Now in The Price of Inequality he develops his argument further. The yawning divergence between rich and poor, he maintains, is damaging those things we hold dear: society, the economy, institutions and politics. In particular he wants to explode the notion of the American dream. We’re brought up to believe in the land of opportunity. Instead, the US is the country of least equality of opportunity of any of the advanced industrial nations. By putting our faith in the mar-

kets we’ve allowed a small section of the population, one per cent, to steal a march on everybody else. The figures are stark: that one per cent has just got richer and richer, increasing their wages by 150 per cent in the past 30 years, versus growth of 15 per cent for the rest. As for opportunity, it simply rarely exists: be born poor in the US and the chances are that you will remain poor. Stiglitz accuses us, too, of complacency. We’ve been content to let the one per cent add to their wealth but what they’ve not been doing is adding to the overall size of the economy. In other words, they’ve taken a larger share at the expense of the rest of us. Finally, we’re showing signs of having had enough - the Occupy movement had a popularity far beyond the makeshift campsites in London and New York. It’s time for the markets to be used to benefit the many, not the few. That golden one per cent may have other ideas but if they’re not prepared to make concessions, then the 99 per cent will have their say. For anyone seeking capitalism with an injection of morality, Stiglitz provides accessible, clearly dissected ammunition. The more unenlightened bankers and their super-rich friends, though, may want to think twice. For them, Stiglitz is far from comfortable reading.

McEwan in his own words

PAPERBACKS By William Leith A Common Loss By Kirsten Tranter

What is the UK’s greatest literary novelist trying to say asks DAVID SEXTON

S

weet Tooth is a rum do. Yet it seems to tell quite a simple story. Back in the Seventies, Serena Frome, the beautiful daughter of an Anglican bishop, goes up to Cambridge to read maths, probably a mistake since what she really likes is reading fiction. A history don with whom she has an affair steers her towards applying to MI5 when she graduates and her fi rst assignment there, code-name Sweet Tooth, involves covert cultural patronage. At this time, the CIA was funding the anti-communist, pro-free speech magazine Encounter and supporting various other cultural organisations they believed could affect the climate of opinion for the better from their perspective. Now MI5 wants to back certain promising young individuals with personal stipends channelled through apparently independent arts bodies. Serena is required to recruit a young novelist, Tom Haley, who has so far published only some short stories and articles. She reads his fiction and is seduced by its sexuality and inventiveness. She meets the man (he’s delighted to get the money and be able to devote himself to his writing) and falls for him too. They become lovers - and now Serena has a problem. She cannot tell Tom where she works or her role in his changed fortunes: she is living a lie. Their relationship surely cannot survive its disclosure? This story is told to us by Serena herself, in the fi rst person, writing now, 40 years after the event. It is her attempt to explain how she got into such a tangle. So it is not a suspenseful forward-moving narrative. McEwan isn’t doing here that thing of witholding necessary information which he resorts to more than most literary novelists but still exploits much less than such genre masters as Lee Child. Serena’s narrative is a little peculiar in other respects, oddly generic at times. She observes, for example, “Nothing strange or terrible happened to me during my first 18 years and that is why I’ll skip them” and then similarly condenses her time as an undergraduate. She tells us, quite dismissively, that she was a compulsive reader of fiction mainly as a way of imagining her own life: “I suppose I was, in my mindless way, looking for something, a version of myself, a heroine I could slip inside as one might a pair of favourite old shoes. Or a wild silk blouse… I suppose I would not have been satisfied until I had in my hands a novel about a girl in a Camden bedsit who occupied a lowly position in MI5 and was without a man.” Again: “I was the basest of readers. All I wanted was my own world, and myself in it, given back to me in artful shapes and accessible form.”

Sweet Tooth By Ian McEwan

Sweet Tooth ends with a surprise twist about what it is exactly we are reading which must not be given away but will perhaps not come as a complete surprise to the many readers of Atonement. We are required then to go back and re-read the novel or at least revisit it, in a different light, a degree of attention that, alas, the novel doesn’t sufficiently reward. For despite the ridiculously come hitherish jacket the book has been presented in by its publisher (doubtless keen to recoup the comparative failure of McEwan’s attempt at comedy, Solar), this isn’t any sort of spy novel,

after all. It’s a book about reading and writing in which it becomes clear that it is the writer who matters. And that writer, Tom Haley, is Ian McEwan, fair and square. McEwan has admitted as much in interview, although he maintains “unfortunately a beautiful woman never came into my room and offered me a stipend”. McEwan, like Haley, was at Sussex University. Like Haley, he was taken up by Ian Hamilton and The New Review and by the publisher Tom Maschler, both depicted in Sweet Tooth. Like Haley, McEwan gave an early reading at Cambridge with Martin Amis (I was there). More importantly, several of Haley’s stories, which Serena reads with such attention and excitement, are McEwan’s own early stories, from In Between the Sheets, only a little altered. The story of a man who falls in love with a mannequin is Dead As They Come, while the short novel with which Haley wins a literary prize and launches his career, From the Somerset Levels, is based closely on Two Fragments: Saturday and Sunday, March 199-, dystopian sketches, heavily influenced by JG Ballard, depicting social breakdown in a (then) future London, from the same 1978 collection. What this open recapitulation of his early career is not true to, however, is the still shocking nastiness of McEwan’s early work. It made his name not just because it was so sexual and explicit but because it delved into real perversion and horror in a way literary fiction previously had not. The opening story of In Between the Sheets, Pornography, is about a Soho porn-merchant with VD, smelling of pus, who is abusively two-timing a couple of nurses – until they catch him out and prepare together to amputate his penis, promising to leave him “a pretty little stump to remember us by”. That’s the authentic early McEwan. Here, Haley’s story Pawnography is about an impoverished schoolteacher who learns that a theft at his home was actually faked by his wife who then pawned the items. Knowing they must part, he makes love to her one last time before confronting her, with “pleasure so focused, so pointed it was a reminder of pain”. A rather more sophisticated study in infidelity, then. McEwan’s rise to become the UK’s most successful literary novelist has depended on modulating the obscenity and horror that originally dominated his sensibility as a writer into much more respectable, sophisticated and extended fiction without, however, losing touch with that ability to shock at key points - as when Robbie says just what he wants to do to Cecilia in the miscarried letter in Atonement. That story is elided in this curious piece of autobiographical fiction. Instead, we are shown once more that it is only the novelist who can offer us the sympathetic understanding of our own lives that we all need. Novels can indeed do that and it’s why we continue to read them, including the always enjoyable novels of Ian McEwan. But it seems a little self-regarding that this should itself be the main message that this novelist now has to give us.

We’re in America. There are five guys who were at college together a few years ago. Elliott, the narrator, is an everyman. Dylan is good-looking. Brian is embarrassed by his wealthy background. And so on. Every year, they go to Las Vegas on a bonding trip. There’s a car crash. It’s close but they all survive. Cameron was driving. Dylan, who is sober, says he was. Then there’s another accident and one of them gets killed. The story, carefully unravelled, is about the aftermath. It’s a bit like a Barbara Vine novel, or Donna Tartt’s The Secret History. It’s compulsive; it sucks you in. Perlmann’s Silence By Pascal Mercier

Philipp Perlmann is a crusty academic. His wife has just died and his world is crumbling around him. Or perhaps it’s his mind. He’s no longer able to see the point of his work. Maybe he’s a little paranoid too. One day he’s asked to speak at a conference in a grand hotel on the Italian Riviera. His academic rivals will be attending and he’ll be crossing swords with them. He admires, despises and fears them, too. Mercier’s storytelling is subtle and beautiful - he gently turns up the heat. And then Perlmann cracks. And cracks some more. An engrossing, deep study of one man’s mind. Superb. Killing Cupid By Louise Voss and Mark Edwards

Alex is a stalker. He’s in someone’s flat. The occupant of the flat lies dead several storeys below. Alex bolts, remembering to leave no traces. When he sees the body, he thinks he’s going to be sick but he doesn’t want to leave his DNA at the scene. Then we go back in time, to the moment when Alex falls in love with the woman who teaches his evening class in writing. She’s 35 and attractive. She’s written a novel a tiny bit like Fifty Shades of Grey. So he hacks a computer to get her personal details, steals her key and when she leaves her house, he breaks in. He learns about her. He feeds her cat. Creepy. It won’t take you long to read.

ARIES

March 21 - April 20

There will be strong emotions swirling about this week and if you’re not very careful you could get swept away by the tide. That is probably nothing to worry about where love affairs are concerned but with family and financial issues you must anchor yourself in reality.

You will say some pretty outrageous things this week but the most outrageous thing of all is that you will get away with it. With Mercury aligned with Pluto, planet of power, you’ll express yourself with such force and conviction that no one dares disagree with you.

GEMINI

May 22 - June 21

You have been far too generous of late. You have given too much money and too much time and too much energy and now you are beginning to feel the effects. The good news is that if you call a halt now it will not be hard to build up your reserves. But it’s got to be now.

CANCER

June 22 - July 22

You may see yourself as a knight in shining armour but make sure the person you are about to rescue wants to be rescued. In fact, make sure they are genuinely in trouble. You can do good deeds without being so dramatic about it. Little things mean the most.

LEO Thierry Krumb withthe winner Nikos Charilaous July 23 - Aug 23

You will be in an extremely forceful mood this week, the kind of mood where you won’t take No for an answer no matter who may be telling you. You will either get a great deal done or fall out with someone it would have been better to stay on good terms with. Or maybe both.

VIRGO

Aug 24 - Sep 23

What you learn, both about yourself and other people, this week will stand you in good stead for years to come. If nothing else it will make you aware of how necessary it is to look out for your own interests, no matter how much you might want to believe that everyone else is as honest and straightforward as you. Don’t pay too much attention to what people say: it’s what they do that matters.

05:00 That Was The Year 06:00 Easy Going Gold 10:00 The Juke Box 17:00 That Was The Year 18:00 Oldies Overnights - Hear the greatest hits of all time playing non stop during the darkest hours.

The Tomb designed fi lm (even the font for the opening credits is unusual) that makes a virtue of its silliness; there are chase scenes, love scenes, markets in Morocco and breaks for song in Spain, a blond hitman who whistles while he works and a hilariously right-on English family whose pouty daughter becomes Hanna’s fi rst-ever friend. Flamboyant fun; made in 2011.

The Tomb (Novacinema3, 23.00) “From the twisted mind of Edgar Allan Poe,” claims the trailer - and this horror fi lm may be (loosely) based on Poe’s story ‘Ligeia’ but it also goes the special-effects route of ghosts shimmering, eyes glowing demonically red and so on. Wes Bentley is our hero, a

successful writer who falls under the spell of witchlike Ligeia (played by Russian starlet Sofya Skya); “I will do what no-one in History has accomplished,” vows the temptress, her aim being to defeat Death and her m.o. involves stealing other people’s souls, her inexorable presence slowly driving poor Wes to madness. Hard to say much about this kind of fi lm, but horror is now the new action (blame CGI, and the special-effects revolution) with straight-to-video horror fl icks as ubiquitous as their action equivalents used to be in the 80s and 90s - and we all agree this is trash but it still entertains, if you don’t mind wooden acting, grisly detail and gratuitous lashings of sex and Satanism. Poe? Oh, pooh! Made in 2009.

(eventually) in the outside world. A good film, but it’s hard to see what the wild acclaim was about; our hero doesn’t seem to stand for any lost French Muslim generation - a suggestion that he’ll ‘find himself’ as a Muslim turns out to be a red herring - and a homoerotic dream (suggesting that the kid may be repressing a gay side) is even more half-baked. Above all, it’s hard to get too enthused about this kind of crime movie when TV shows like The Wire are doing similar material so much more thoroughly - albeit not in French, and without surreal touches like the whole ‘prophet’ angle. Made in 2009.

Man Trouble (Capital TV, 21.00) “Jack is back,” crowed the trailer - and Jack Nicholson did indeed try for a comeback (he’d just sunk two years of his life in The Two Jakes, a dream project that flopped badly) in this bouncy hybrid, written and directed by the folks who’d given him his fi rst big hit 20 years earlier in Five Easy Pieces. Now in his mid-50s, Nicholson was still sexy - if a bit seedy with his gravelly voice and trim moustache, playing the proprietor of a guard-dog agency whose skills (or those of his canine colleagues) are sought after by Ellen Barkin, whose sister has been kidnapped by a gangster. Ellen’s a bit hysterical, which is part of the joke (her antics contrast with Jack’s slow-burning

The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn smoulder), on the other hand people really are trying to kill her, which curdles the comedy slightly. The result is a fi lm made by talented people which never fi nds its tone, and ends up floundering hopelessly; another flop for Jack, though he bounced back soon after with A Few Good Men. Made in 1992.

The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn (Novacinema1, 22.00) Steven Spielberg is a big Tintin fan, Tintin being the Belgian comic penned by the late great Hergé (the feeling was mutual: Hergé was a big Spielberg fan), and the love is evident in the first half-hour of this cartoon adaptation as Tintin - our blond-quiffed

young hero - finds a model of a ship called the ‘Unicorn’ and is instantly accosted by two men, both of whom insist on buying it from him. “What secret do you hold?” he muses later, perusing the ‘Unicorn’, and the stage is set for a marvellous puzzle - but instead the film goes wrong, smothered by the Spielberg style of wall-to-wall action set-pieces; once Tintin gets abducted, and finds himself a prisoner on board a ship, it’s one mad exploit, kinetic chase and nick-of-time escape after another, killing the books’ whimsical charm. Actually based on three Tintin books, cherry-picking highlights without the bits in between, which is why it’s so manic and airless; still quite exciting, in the Spielberg style. Made in 2011.

PICK OF THE DAY Fearless (LTV, 21.00) A good week for Peter Weir on local TV. ‘Who?’ asks the entire population of the world - but Mr. Weir is the Australian director who made Dead Poets Society (Picked on Tuesday) and also made this early90s drama, graced by a superb Jeff Bridges performance. Jeff gets in an air crash - a scene that should not be watched by anyone with a fear of fl ying - but is one of the few survivors, fi nding himself not just alive but seemingly reborn, afraid of nothing; his old life seems inadequate

now, much to the chagrin of devoted wife Isabella Rossellini - but there’s also Rosie Perez, a fellow survivor racked by guilt after losing her baby. Can her grief jolt Jeff out of his newfound serenity, or will he end up healing her? Starts unforgettably, with the shocked survivors walking out of the cornfield, then gradually goes a bit wrong, lapsing into clichés and Big Speeches; still a good fi lm, with a strong spiritual streak. “This movie, for me, is best viewed alone, with no distractions whatsoever,” notes a perceptive fan at the Internet Movie Database. Made in 1993.

War of the Buttons (Novacinema1, 19.10) The French really love War of the Buttons; it’s got cute kids and a portrait of long-ago village life, both things the French fi nd irresistible - though it still seemed a bit excessive when two versions of the classic French novel came out within a week of each other (it was also fi lmed in the early 60s, and there’s also an Irish version from the mid-90s). This is the more light-hearted version - the other one was set in Occupied France, and added a sub-plot about a little Jewish girl trying to hide from the Nazis - telling the tale of two children’s gangs from rival villages starting a vendetta that quickly escalates into violence; the book’s been updated slightly, with a tomboyish

War of the Buttons girl also included in the boys’ gangs, but it’s mostly nostalgia for a time when kids played outside and even formed (benign) gangs, as opposed to staying home with their computers. French audiences were bemused to see two versions coming out at the same time - apparently, the book had recently fallen in the public domain - but didn’t really mind; after all, they love War of the Buttons. Eric Elmosnino (from Gainsbourg) plays the main adult role. Made in 2011.

Jagged Edge (Capital TV, 22.40) How old is this thriller? Well, let’s just say one of the plot twists has to do with ... a typewriter! I can say no more, except to confi rm we all loved it back in the

80s (though I haven’t seen it since). Glenn Close is a lawyer, defending Jeff Bridges who’s been charged with the brutal murder of his rich wife; Jeff is innocent, of course - right? - but proving it is another matter, made even trickier when Glenn falls in love with her slippery client. Peter Coyote is the prosecutor, warning our heroine not to trust Jeff (“He is not a psychopath; he’s an ice man!”) but Coyote played the government agent who went after E.T. so we clearly can’t believe a word he says. Right? Could be slightly dated, given how outlandish Hollywood twists have become in the 27 years since (no, Jeff doesn’t turn out to be a figment of Glenn’s imagination), but I’m sure it’s still very solid. Made in 1985.

Katharine Hepburn and Elizabeth Taylor won Oscar nominations as auntie and niece, respectively. Katy’s son died while on holiday with Liz, and Liz is in shock having seen something horrible; psychiatrist Montgomery Clift tries to probe her psyche but rich bitch Katy wants the girl lobotomised, to cover up the truth. “All of us children in a vast kindergarten, trying to spell God’s name with the wrong alphabet blocks!” she laments, which is typical of the fi lm’s florid dialogue - and Time Out is right that it touches on “madness, homosexual prostitution, incest, disease

Suddenly Last Summer

and cannibalism,” but mostly it’s just sad and a little sleazy. Still a kind of classic, though. Made in 1959.

Dangerous Liaisons (LTV3, 20.00) Did someone say classics? This one counts too, though it doesn’t seem terribly old since its main actors are still well-known faces (just 24 years older). John Malkovich seemed a strange choice for Valmont, the professional heartbreaker from Choderlos de Laclos’ 18th-century novel - he doesn’t have classic Lothario looks - but there’s something hypnotic in his snake-like presence as he plots to ruin a virtuous woman (Michelle Pfeiffer, irresistible) and seduce a virginal young thing (Uma Thurman) who’s

The Hangover, Part II about to be married. He does it for the sake of Glenn Close, his ex-lover and partner in crime, a bored and sadistic aristocrat who wants revenge on Uma’s husband-to-be and plots Michelle’s seduction for no special reason, just for fun - and the fi lm is stagy but superb, a claustrophobic talk-piece about control and manipulation. Later turned into a teenpic in Cruel Intentions, which is fi ne campy fun - but this elegant quadrille is clearly the better fi lm. Made in 1988.

The Hangover, Part II (LTV, 21.00) It’s Stu, Phil and Alan (Ed Helms, Bradley Cooper and Zach Galifianakis), the hapless trio from the fi rst Hangover, once again on a wedding-related

jaunt where things go terribly wrong - and Part 2 faithfully reprises all the ‘money’ moments in Part 1, albeit changing the details slightly. Part 1 had a tiger in the room, now it’s a capuchin monkey; Stu was missing a tooth in Part 1, now his face is tattooed; Mike Tyson turned up in Part 1 - and turns up again here, belting out ‘One Night in Bangkok’ which is where the fi lm is set. Still a lively comedy, with some undisputed highlights, but the slavishness is a bit depressing - and the Galifi anakis character has been much-weakened, turned into a manchild instead of the singular weirdo he was in the original. It gets worse: The Hangover, Part III is already in production, and due for release next May. Made in 2011.

PICK OF THE DAY Seven Minutes in Heaven (LTV3, 20.00) “There are two girls in my life,” explains 15-year-old Jeff (Byron Thames) in the trailer for this 80s teen movie. “One is the girl I like, and the other is the girl I live with!”. The girl he likes is played by Maddie Corman (who?), but the girl he lives with is played by future Oscar winner Jennifer Connelly, already a beauty at 14 - though Jeff and she are ‘just friends’, our boy having run away from home after trouble with his stepfather. John Hughes was the king of 80s teen movies, which may be why this one (not written or directed by Mr. Hughes) is so unknown - but it’s actually lovely, if perhaps a touch too sweet, full of nice moments like Jen calling her friends in the mid-

Maddie is kooky, Jennifer a poised young lady, Byron is perhaps a little smug (the fi lm might’ve worked better with a more expressive male lead) - then again the fi lm was directed by a woman, so maybe she just bonded more readily with the girls. “Unless you’re an old coot, you’ll probably fi nd it likeable,” quips a fan at the Internet Movie Database - but I’m an old(ish) coot, and I found it delightful. Made in 1985.

New York Stories (LTV, 21.00) Picked before, but here it is again in a

prime slot - and Woody Allen fans can do a doublebill tonight, going from Midnight in Paris (LTV, 18.15) to Woody’s New York story, ‘Oedipus Wrecks’. Admittedly they have to wade through two other stories fi rst - though Martin Scorsese’s story ‘Life Lessons’ is a pleasure to watch (or re-watch), with middle-aged painter Nick Nolte obsessing over young assistant Rosanna Arquette as ‘Whiter Shade of Pale’ wails on the soundtrack. Alas, the same can’t be said of Francis Coppola’s te-

MONDAY-FRIDAY 05:00 That Was The Year 06:00 Easy Going Gold 10:00 The Juke Box 17:00 That Was The Year 18:00 Oldies Overnights - Hear the greatest hits of all time playing non stop during the darkest hours.

From Prada to Nada dious middle story, ‘Life Without Zoe’, the main reason why this fi lm was seen as a relative failure - but then Woody comes along with his comic tale of the ultimate Jewish mother, and all is right in the world. Or at least New York. Made in 1989.

From Prada to Nada (Novacinema1, 22.00) “From Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibility,” read the opening credits of this fluffy chick-fl ick. ‘A long way from Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibility’ might’ve been a more honest credit, though the fi lm (like the Jane Austen novel) does indeed feature two sisters, one of whom is sensible (reads books) while the other is fl ighty (likes to shop). Then again,

the girls in Jane Austen weren’t Beverly Hills Latinas so disconnected from their Mexican roots they don’t even speak Spanish, and their sudden poverty had a feminist slant (they weren’t allowed to inherit because they were women) - whereas here they just become poor and move to the barrio, at which point they meet lots of nice Mexican people and drop their snooty airs. Camilla Belle is the sensible sis, Alexa Vega (once of Spy Kids) the perky one; Adriana Barraza plays their auntie - and Ms. Barraza was Oscarnominated for Babel a few years ago, but now here she is playing small roles in bad teen movies and reading lines like “Not everything that stinks is caca”. Jane Austen was never like this. Made in 2011.

Southland (LTV2, 21.00) “We’re looking to give them the taste of Los Angeles that made the show what it is, through the eyes of the Los Angeles Police Department,” explains a director in the trailer for this cop show - and the show is now in its fi fth season (though Season 3 kicks off tonight on LTV2) so it must be doing something right, then again US television has long had a love affair with cops (we’re still waiting for the fi rst Cyprus cop show on local TV, maybe because a lot of it would involve telling people to turn their music down and show-

ing up at burgled houses to explain there’s nothing they can do). Tonight on the mean streets of LA, a cleaning lady is found murdered in an air-conditioning duct, a bank robbery goes wrong and two gang members are executed by fellow gangsters; “It’s my city,” shrugs Regina King in the trailer, and Ms. King is the show’s main asset as tough-as-nails Det. Lydia Adams - though even that doesn’t explain why a fairly generic cop series is now in its fi fth season. Didn’t people used to hate cops, back in the day? ‘Let it Snow’ is the episode title.

Dead Poets Society (Novacinema2, 22.00) The late 80s were a bad time in US movie-title punctuation: fi rst Who Framed Roger Rabbit came without a question mark, then Dead Poets Society came without an apostrophe - though this wasn’t really such a major snafu, since the Society in question didn’t actually belong to dead poets (how could it? they were dead). Instead it’s a Society of teenage boys, all very sensitive - so sensitive that one of them is played by Ethan Hawke - and terribly oppressed, stuck in a strict prep school that stifles their individuality; all that changes when Inspirational Teacher Robin Williams turns up, sparking a love of poetry (hence the Society) and urging the dazed youngsters to “seize

Storage Wars the day” - but of course the Forces of Oppression clamp down, and it all ends in tears. A touching fi lm with Williams at his least insufferable, lots of evocative detail and a climax (“O Captain, my Captain!”) that milks every possible tear. Probably as good as this rather simplistic plot can be. Made in 1989.

Storage Wars (History Channel, 22.00) ‘Storage’ and ‘war’, two words that just don’t belong together. ‘War’ is something nations do to each other, involving great suffering and loss of life; ‘storage’ is something you do to your unwanted stuff, involving stacking it as neatly as possible - yet Storage Wars is now in its second season (kicking off tonight) so

there’s clearly an audience for this tale of cutthroat auctions. “When storage units are abandoned, the treasures within are put up for auction,” explains a stentorian voice, the catch being that buyers aren’t allowed to inspect the contents before making their bid; all they get is a five-minute look from a distance, making the whole thing a bit of a gamble - and the show duly pumps up this rather banal scenario, giving its (real) people monikers like ‘The Gambler’, ‘The Mogul’, ‘The Young Gun’ and ‘The Collector’. These four buyers buy stuff, then argue about it. All quite enjoyable, but calling this ‘war’ is the biggest travesty since the act of sitting on a chair looking at a computer screen was described as ‘surfi ng’.

Shameless (LTV2, 21.55) “The craziest TV family of all time is back for a second season,” trumpet LTV with just a touch of hyperbole - and some might disagree with that assertion (those who saw the original UK Shameless, for instance) but there’s certainly fun to be had in this bad-behaviour sitcom, starring William H. Macy as the all-too-still centre around whom the mayhem revolves. Macy’s a perpetually drunk paterfamilias with six troublesome kids - and the trailer for Season 2 (starting tonight) unsurprisingly plays up

the trouble, stacking up so many girl-on-girl kisses, hot bedroom action, pole-dancing, stripping, a girl tattooing the word ‘WHORE’ on her arm, a young man admitting “You just made my boy parts get bigger” and so much uninhibited dialogue you may wonder why LTV still bother with an Adult Zone. Tonight, “Fiona gets a job in a club, while Frank loses Liam in a bet” - and Liam is a toddler, so losing him in a bet is even more shameless than the show’s other shameless behaviour; but not by much. “Shameless doesn’t escape

anything, it lives in the world it is given and every so often reminds you ... that the sweetest lemonade is almost bitter,” raves a poetic Brit at the Internet Movie Database. ‘Summertime’ is the episode title.

Outrage (Novacinema1, 22.00) It’s Takeshi Kitano, a legend in Japan, famous both as a comedian and the creator of stylish gangster fi lms with a faint tinge of deadpan humour. He’s also famous for his inexpressive face, made even more inexpressive after some of it was paralysed in a motorbike accident that nearly killed him in the mid-90s - and the 90s were his glory days (Sonatine and Hana-Bi being his best-known fi lms) but he’s

MONDAY-FRIDAY 05:00 That Was The Year 06:00 Easy Going Gold 10:00 The Juke Box 17:00 That Was The Year 18:00 Oldies Overnights - Hear the greatest hits of all time playing non stop during the darkest hours.

Outrage still going strong, now in his 60s and winning some acclaim for this violent yakuza drama (yakuza being Japan’s word for Mafi a). Various crime lieutenants compete for the attention of the big boss, especially when a henchman falls into disfavour after making a deal with a rival clan; the result is a series of killings, territorial invasions and other acts of businesslike brutality - mostly lacking the occasional humour and lyricism of Kitano’s 90s fi lms, but effective in a cool, mechanical way. In Japanese; made in 2010.

Around the World in 80 Ways (Discovery Channel, 23.00) Here are some of the 80 different forms of transpor-

tation used by Rob Mariano and professional monster-truck driver Dennis Anderson as they circle the globe in Phineas Fogg’s footsteps. Motorcycle, ferry boat, funicular, hang glider, ice-cream cart, cargo plane, hearse, steam roller, dune buggy - yes but wait a sec, what’s the point behind it all? wait, don’t interrupt, let me fi nish - long-tail boat, rickshaw, buffalo cart, sampan, “yike bike”, Model T, stilts, hot-air balloon, tractor, raft, tour bus, ox cart - no but seriously, why is this gimmick even interesting? wait, I’m almost done - safari car, road painter, combine harvester, tow truck, commercial jet, helicopter, tuk tuk, camel, elephant and ostrich. Yes, but why go around the world in this way? Because they can.
