. THE PIANO ********** Year: 1993 Director, Producer, Screenwriter - Jane Campion Cast - Holly Hunter, Harvey Keitel, Sam Neill, Anna Paquin. Music - Michael Nyman Cinematography - Stuart Dryburgh Running Time - 117 mins Language - English, Maori, BSL Genre - Drama, Melodrama ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ TRIVIA Director Jane Campion was the first woman to win the Palme d'Or award at the 1993 Cannes Film Festival and also the first New Zealand filmmaker to achieve this. She shared the prestigious honour with Chen Kaige's 'Farewell My Concubine'. . Seven Oscar nominations were given to women: Screenwriter and Director Jane Campion, Producer Jan Chapman, Costume Designer Janet Patterson, Editor Veronica Jenet and actresses Holly Hunter and Anna Paquin. Cinematographer Stuart Dryburgh was the only man to get a nomination. . Holly Hunter played most of the piano sequences herself. . Sigourney Weaver was initially considered for the role but declined. Holly Hunter had to fight for the part because Campion had in mind 'a tall European exotic beauty'. Later Campion would say 'her gaze was stupendous'. . QUOTE Ada (Holly Hunter): "The voice you hear is not my speaking voice - but my mind's voice. I have not spoken since I was six years old. No one knows why - not even me. My father says it is a dark talent... Today he married me to a man I have not yet met. Soon my daughter and I shall join him in his own country... I don't think myself silent. That is because of my piano. I shall miss it on the journey." . "At night I think of my piano in its ocean grave, and sometimes of myself floating above it. Down there everything is so still and silent that it lulls me to sleep. It is a weird lullaby and so it is; it is mine." ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ #thepiano #janecampion #hollyhunter #harveykeitel #annapaquin #samneill #newzealandcinema #worldcinema #cinephile

#MovieMonday Miracles do

#MovieMonday Miracles do exist in this world, because BROADCAST NEWS (1987) is now on Netflix. For once I can recommend a movie that you can find without resorting to illegal activity. (Speaking of, Talented Mr Ripley is also now on Netflix). Broadcast News is simply one of the smartest, funniest, most compelling and entertaining movies ever made. It concerns the lives of 3 people who work for a television news program: Holly Hunter is the workaholic producer, Albert Brooks is the neurotic reporter whos desperate for camera-time, and William Hurt is the hunky anchor who looks good reading the news but isnt smart enough to understand it. These three complex, beautifully drawn characters are involved in an epic love triangle that plays out over the backdrop of a fast-paced national news program, where breaking stories are always threatening to interrupt the romance (but never the laughs). Ultimately, Hollys character must choose between two men who are in love with her and hate each other: Hurt, whos handsome and charming but vain and empty, and Brooks, whos funny and deep but a sweaty, anxious mess. This is a film about what it means to dedicate your life to your career (for one, you end up dating your co-workers), and about staying true to your principles in the face of love. Its hysterical, its heart-breaking, its profound. What do you do when real life exceeds your dreams? Keep it to yourself #broadcastnews #jameslbrooks #hollyhunter #albertbrooks #williamhurt #1987 #movienight #moviebuff #movielover #greatmovie #classicmovie #cinema #film #filmlover #filmbuff #greatfilm

An extract on #hollyhunter

In the late 20th Century, an estimated $2 billion was spent annually in North America on roadway winter maintenance, owing to snow and other winter weather events, according to a 1994 report by Kuemmel. The study surveyed the practices of jurisdictions within 44 US states and nine Canadian provinces. It assessed the policies, practices, and equipment used for winter maintenance. It found similar practices and progress to be prevalent in Europe. The dominant effect of snow on vehicle contact with the road is diminished friction. This can be improved with the use of snow tires, which have a tread designed to compact snow in a manner that enhances traction. However, the key to maintaining a roadway that can accommodate traffic during and after a snow event is an effective anti-icing program that employs both chemicals and plowing. The FHWA Manual of Practice for an Effective Anti-icing Program emphasizes "anti-icing" procedures that prevent the bonding of snow and ice to the road. Key aspects of the practice include: understanding anti-icing in light of the level of service to be achieved on a given roadway, the climatic conditions to be encountered, and the different roles of deicing, anti-icing, and abrasive materials and applications, and employing anti-icing "toolboxes", one for operations, one for decision-making and another for personnel. The elements to the toolboxes are: Operations Addresses the application of solid and liquid chemicals, using various techniques, including prewetting of chloride-salts. It also addresses plowing capability, including types of snowplows and blades used. Decision-making Combines weather forecast information with road information to assess the upcoming needs for application of assets and the evaluation of treatment effectiveness with operations underway. Personnel Addresses training and deployment of staff to effectively execute the anti-icing program, using the appropriate materials, equipment and procedures. The manual offers matrices that address different types of snow and the rate of snowfall to tailor applications appropriately and efficiently. Snow fences, constructed upwind of roadways control snow drifting by causing windblown, drifting snow to accumulate in a desired place. They are also used on railways. Additionally, farmers and ranchers use snow fences to create drifts in basins for a ready supply of water in the spring.

Both plant and animal life endemic to snow-bound areas develop ways to adapt. Among the adaptive mechanisms for plants are dormancy, seasonal dieback, survival of seeds; and for animals are hibernation, insulation, anti-freeze chemistry, storing food, drawing on reserves from within the body, and clustering for mutual heat.
