Notes:
'Still Life' is a beautiful, big-hearted, richly tapestried story of people brought together by love, war, art, flood - and the ghost of E.M. Forster. We just need to know what the heart's capable of, Evelyn. And do you know what it's capable of? I do. Grace and fury. It's 1944 and in the ruined wine cellar of a Tuscan villa, as the Allied troops advance and bombs fall around them, two strangers meet and share an extraordinary evening together. Ulysses Temper is a young British solider and one-time globe-maker, Evelyn Skinner is a sexagenarian art historian and possible spy. She has come to Italy to salvage paintings from the ruins and relive her memories of the time she encountered E.M. Forster and had her heart stolen by an Italian maid in a particular Florentine room with a view.

Part one is good. It goes downhill thereafter alas. Moronic and repetitive so-called dialogue. A shame. Quit half way.
