A bit last minute for this one as I only spotted it was on last night on the way back from the pub.

The East Finchley Phoenix is showing the Studio Ghibli production of Tales From Earthsea this week at 11am only! As tomorrow (Monday) is a bank holiday I'm going to try and catch that showing. The other bonus is that tickets are only £3!!!

I love art house cinemas :)

Anyway, I know most people probably won't catch this until it's too late (being that many people don't check LJ at weekends...) but if anyone is up for joining me it's be great to have you along! I'm aiming at meeting up with anyone at about 10.45am outside the cinema.

Tales from Earthsea (PG) 1hr 55mins. Japan 2007. In English.

From Studio Ghibli, the team that brought you SPIRITED AWAY and HOWL’S MOVING CASTLE, comes TALES FROM EATHSEA, which marks the directorial debut of Goro Miyazaki, son of the legendary Hayao Miyazaki. Based on the unique series of books by Ursula Le Guin, this enchanting story takes place in a fantasy world of dragons and wizards. A ship is being tossed by a raging sea and two dragons appear from the storm clouds, only to devour each other. This is seen to be a terrible omen that the balance of the world is collapsing. The wizard Sparrowhawk sets out on a quest to find the source of the evil forces that are shaking the world.

I've seen somewhere that Le Guin had great hopes for this and was hugely disappointed at how much it ended up mangling her story.

Unlikely to be worse than the live-action mini-series though...

I saw it at the local film festival about a month ago - not too bad. I'm not going to rave on about it, I really think the other big movies by Studio Ghibli were far finer (for gorgeous visual content and ability to communicate a story with emotion).

Prepare to be disappointed.
