Olivier Assayas's film on the aftermath of May 1968 is infantile ultra-leftism
JOE GLENTON explains his need to respond to a world that is unsustainably divided
ENO's production of La Boheme is a triumph,
If you don't know Kahlil Gibran's poetic world, this is an unmissable opportunity.
The Prophet, the most popular of Gibran's books, was first published in 1923 and the philosophical and poetic essay became highly popular in the 1960s counterculture.
The original text, a profound meditation on peaceful coexistence, is narrated affectingly by Thandie Newton and is accompanied by beautiful images.
Gary Tarn's direction perfectly blends with the poetry and the images never disturb or invade Gibran's world.
It is 75 minutes of sublime reflection, an endlessly fascinating visual lecture and a significant social commentary too in which images and poetry combine to create a memorably lyrical film.
