The theme over at Hannah's place this week is Directors. Who is our favourite director and why.
There are many great directors but my vote is going with the great
Completely home grown here in the U.K. Danny was born in Manchester in 1956 and is one of only 7 Directors to win the Golden Globe, Directors Guild, BAFTA and Oscar for the same movie.
His list of movies I adore...
A Life Less Ordinary
The Beach (even though the end was different to the book)
28 Days Later
But the one film I love more than all of these is, of course, Slumdog Millionaire. The one that swept up all the awards!
You have all probably seen it but Slumdog is filmed in India and follows the story of the young Jamal Malik who grew up in the slums of Mumbai and appears on the Indian version of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? When he exceeds in answers the questions, suspicions are raised and he's investigated.
The film is simply beautiful, funny and heart-warming - with a great soundtrack to boot! Naturally my love of toilet humour will always bring back fond memories of the 'poo scene'.
