\ Myke bartlett reviews the latest

When broken-hearted council worker Sam (Mathew Baynton) witnesses a spectacular car crash on his way to work, he is drawn into a Hitchcockian conspiracy involving a kidnapped wife, a lost phone and several mistaken identities. Sam is, clearly, out of his depth. But we get the feeling that is somewhere he is used to being – he’s the sort of appealing, somewhat gormless no-hoper the Brits do so well. When he meets the even-more-hopeless but enthusiastic Phil (James Corden), the pair embark on an unlikely mission to save a beautiful woman, probably. Inspired equally by slacker bromance Shaun of the Dead and thrillers such as Homeland, this is a funny comedy with a complex, breathless plot. Shaun is an apt comparison, I feel, because there’s a cinematic energy to the production that recalls the work of that film’s director, Edgar Wright. Baynton is immediately endearing, looking something like a hungover meerkat as he stumbles from one near-disaster to the next. His partner Corden (most recently seen in opera flick One Chance) is as engaging as always, his daft-sidekick patter reminiscent of a less-irritating Ricky Gervais. Together, the pair might just delude themselves into becoming heroes. Sharp, clever and genuinely hilarious, this is a darkly comic gem. \

FILM

The Monuments Men \ Opens March 13, Rated M, 118 min » www.monumentsmen.com

Hollywood seems to be running out of ways to tell stories about Nazis. In the wake of a limp adaptation of The Book Thief comes this tale of wartime art theft and desecration. George Clooney recruits an all-star cast of middle-aged pals in an attempt to prevent Hitler stocking his private museum with Europe’s greatest treasures. This rag-tag bunch have been left behind by the war – too old, too infirm or too drunk to be heroes. Seizing their last chance, they undertake basic training and infiltrate occupied France. The core premise should, at least, make for a fascinating tour over familiar ground. As it is, Clooney’s film feels like reheated leftovers from far finer meals. Its scattered collection of sentimental scenes never quite resolve into a coherent story. Part of the problem is the film resists its potential silliness, mistaking itself for something much worthier. This should be a more convincing version of Indiana Jones 4, with the archaeologists racing cartoon Nazis and Russians. Instead, it plays out as a lightweight Saving Private Ryan. Rife with clichés, The Monuments Men left me wondering why we’re still making World War II films. With recent examples merely recycling or renovating old tales, maybe it’s time Hollywood – and the rest of us – finally moved on. \

Some of Melbourne’s best writers, including Joanna Murray-Smith, Marieke Hardy and Tim Rogers will contribute playlets for this one-night-only theatre event. Each writer has chosen a favourite love song and written a piece inspired by it – the catch being that their playlet can only be as long as the song itself. The evening will see 13 playlets performed. Staged by the Red Stitch ensemble (and special guests) in the cosy surroundings of Kinfolk Café, PLAYlist aims to raise money to help continue the St Kilda-based company’s excellent work. \

New York pianist Kris Bowers describes himself as a musical omnivore. On listening to his debut LP, it’s hard to disagree. Musicians are forever overstating their eclecticism, but Bowers’ take on piano jazz is one fed by a love of film scores, ’70s synth-soul and ’90s hip-hop. Purists might baulk at this free-ranging approach to their genre, but there’s no doubting Bowers’ talent for jazz is immense and sincere. The 10 tracks here draw equally on Nat King Cole, Oscar Peterson and Miles Davis (with a dash of Kanye West, perhaps). The laid-back WonderLove is Sunday afternoon R&B, Drift is hypnotic and atmospheric, and #TheProtester is sprawling and chaotic – a glorious mess, evoking Bitches Brew. \

CATHOLIC Education WEEK \ Thousands of students will be in the city on St Patrick’s Day as part of Catholic Education Week, writes Jo Davy

I

n the lead up to World Youth Day celebrations in 2013, Pope Francis had one message for young people all over the world. Via Twitter, he encouraged young people to celebrate their talents as gifts and not be afraid to “dream of great things”. It was a powerful message, one that has inspired the theme of this year’s Catholic Education Week: “Entrust yourselves to God and dare to dream”. Held from March 15 to 23, Catholic Education Week invites Catholic schools from across Melbourne to celebrate their faith and identity. The Catholic Education Office hosts three big events, with 329 Catholic schools across Melbourne taking part. The largest gathering will be on St Patrick’s Day, when more than 2000 students are expected to fill St Patrick’s Cathedral for morning mass, followed by a march to the Treasury Gardens for a lunchtime concert. Catholic Education executive director Stephen Elder says the students’ procession through the streets of Melbourne displaying their school emblems has been an annual tradition since 1998. This year’s theme is perhaps best reflected in the other two major events hosted by the Catholic Education Office: the Visual Arts Exhibition and the Young Speakers Colloquium. The exhibition displays the best of Catholic student art, with prizes awarded in 14 categories across primary and secondary levels. Of the nearly 300 pieces on display to the public, four

were submitted by students in year 11 and 12 at Catholic Ladies’ College in Eltham. CLC art teacher Ann Durham says the school has contributed work to the exhibition for many years, relishing the chance to recognise students’ achievements and celebrate the school’s role in Catholic Education. “The arts give students the means and opportunity to explore, express and understand what is happening in their world, and can provide the opportunity for the expression of individual faith,” she says. PCW Melbourne has submitted five pieces to the exhibition this year, including a large self-portrait by former student Elaine Leong. Leong, who was PCW dux last year, used layers of fingerprints to create a piece illustrating a very personal struggle with an impulse control disorder known as dermatillomania. Another event that’s sure to inspire lofty ambitions in students is the Young Speakers Colloquium on March 20. Catholic secondary students will have the opportunity to hear the personal stories of three inspiring young Victorians. Brooke Parsons co-founded the Young Victorian Stroke Support Group after suffering a stroke at the age of 13. Along with landscape architect and sustainable-design advocate Lucinda Hartley and Collingwood Football Club captain Nick Maxwell, she will share her experiences and visions for the future

ast time I looked at Mitsubishi’s neat little ASX it had just one problem; the highly economical diesel engine wasn’t available with an automatic gearbox. Now it is, and the combination of generous torque and economy will win plenty of customers, even if the motor is a bit noisy. The overriding factor is that the ASX is such a sensible package for the price, and prices start at just $24,990 for the base two-wheel-drive petrol model. It’s a compact wagon that offers optional four-wheel-drive and good ground clearance for the occasional bush track or fishing spot, but has none of the traditional hallmarks of big, boofy four-wheel-drives. In other words, it looks and behaves like a regular car. This not only makes it easier to drive and park, it also saves you from the sideways looks from neighbours and friends who fret about the fate of the planet and vote Green. Pretty much the only complaint I have is the temporary spare tyre, a dumb idea on a car that could otherwise be used comfortably for a big round-Australia trip. Bringing an automatic together with a diesel engine is never straightforward and that may be why Mitsubishi took its time doing it, but this combination works well. The changes are smooth and fuss free in normal driving. Only one thing to watch; the gearbox is calibrated for maximum fuel economy and that means it changes down at the earliest

possible opportunity, even when it means it’s grumbling along at 1200rpm, on the verge of labouring. But, given the generous torque available, this mostly works OK and is not something you notice until you floor the accelerator, when it takes a moment to sort itself out and get down to a lower gear. This is something to bear in mind when overtaking on the highway. While the ASX is not a car that enjoys being chucked into corners, its handling is adequate

for the bulk of drivers and the ride is pretty good. The tyres can get a bit noisy on coarse bitumen at freeway speeds, otherwise this is a very comfortable package, and well specified. There’s good cargo space and reasonable rear seat room. The most attractive thing about it is its pricing; it presents top-class value along with excellent economy, and the warranty is among the best in the industry. \ reasdown@theweeklyreview.com.au

or 20 years, Bluetrain café has been a favoured meeting place for Melburnians and tourists visiting the Southgate precinct. With its Aussie fusion cuisine, informal atmosphere, bustling interior and views across the Yarra to the city skyline, the café has become a popular Melbourne institution. So moving Bluetrain to a new home was a leap of faith. It happened when a refit was called for to freshen the venue and help grow the business. When Studio Equator design studio was engaged to create a new look, founder and creative director Carlos Flores says it was clear Bluetrain needed a bigger space. Eight months later, work began on a Southgate space that is the new home of Bluetrain. The restaurant’s designers had to create a vibrant space without losing the buzz Bluetrain was known for. “It was vitally important that the old atmosphere was kept in this new place,” Studio Equator interior architect Ben Fretard says. “It took confidence to make this move but customers are happy and say they feel this place has the same Bluetrain atmosphere. The place is packed and people are spending more time and money at the venue, so I think it’s been a very successful project.” The new-look Bluetrain has been divided into separate spaces. A red, yellow and blue colour palette, graffiti art and geometric graphics integrate each area. “The previous Bluetrain was a large open space, like a big open cafeteria. But big spaces don’t work any more; people prefer smaller spaces,” Flores says. Fretard adds: “The different zones mean you can have people watching football on the TV in the sports bar, other people having dinner in the main area, or people enjoying a coffee in the lounge area, and there’s a different ambience in each of these zones.’’ The sports bar has a large flat-screen TV, stools and high tables, and custom-designed geometric flooring. Lattice steelwork throughout the bar area reflects the geometric patterns throughout the restaurant. “We wanted to create a space where you know you’re inside the sports bar area,” Fretard says. “The ceiling is exposed and it’s a more blokey and industrial look.” A casual lounge area adjoins the sports bar. It has low couches overhung by Meccano-style light fittings. Each light fixture is shaped to form an outline of the Melbourne train map. The main dining room capitalises on river and city

But it has an “industrial chic” influence, Flores says. Large pillars in the main dining area feature graffiti art from Melbourne’s leading street artists, but the colours pick up on the standard Bluetrain palette. The dining area also has custom-made light fittings made of Lucky Beer bottles transformed into chandeliers. When lit, the luminous green lighting can be seen from across the river. “We have everything from graffiti to traditional architecture and modern architecture. It’s very textural,” Flores says. “We wanted the whole space to be very visual and surprising, so you get different views when you sit in different places.” The designers also created shipping “it took containers using roofing materials that were confidence stencilled and painted to look like genuine to make this containers.

For the first time, Bluetrain also has a 60- to (supplied) 70-person function space that can be part of the main dining area or curtained off for a private function. “The concept of this room was the lanes of Melbourne,” Flores says.

“We put the banquette seating high and used reclaimed vinyl floor tiles on the wall. They’ve been hand-stencilled to continue the geometric graphics. The lighting was custom-made using old bike wheels because there are a lot of bikes and cyclists in Melbourne.” Across from the main entrance, the new Bluetrain also has an outdoor dining area and kiosk that opens at 7am for anyone seeking an early caffeine hit. Fretard nominates fitting all elements into the space as the biggest challenge of the project. “Before we even started in here we spent a couple of months on the layout, figuring out the size of the kitchen and the dining area and what would go where,’’ he says. “At first the kitchen filled nearly half the restaurant – it’s still a good size but obviously had to be smaller than that.” The venue and its eclectic design have attracted old customers and new, and garnered attention from the design world from as far afield as Russia, the Ukraine, Turkey and the US. “It has personality, it’s interesting and it’s the kind of thing happening in New York, Berlin, Barcelona and LA,” says Flores. “Bluetrain now has a particular atmosphere – industrial chic – that people really like, and it’s still the people’s café and Melbourne’s meeting place.” \ smarinos@theweeklyreview.com.au » www.studioequator.com » www.bluetrain.com.au

media \ the power of print Hello, fellow Linkedinarians and property gurus. Today’s rant is about property newspaper advertising. Over the past few years, a lot of clients (and their agents) think that an online listing is all it takes to sell property. They’re probably right if it’s a one-off property in the right location, and at the right price. But what about 80 properties to be sold under the hammer in one afternoon? The location was the The Metung Hotel, the properties were in Metung and Paynesville. That was the assignment for agent John Castran and the team here at Tomorrow. The campaign was back to the good old days. The auction was an event and it needed to be announced with full page ads in The Age and local papers. The result – 1500 people attended with 60 per cent pre-registered to bid. Every property sold without a vendor bid at an average of 20 per cent over reserve. The auction commenced at noon and the last contract was exchanged before 6pm. It was probably the largest auction ever to take place in Australia. This is a classic example of bringing buyers into a market, and unless they were already looking, online just won’t do it. LONG LIVE PRINT MEDIA! Ian Hickey \ Managing Director, Tomorrow Agency
