Just watched this film again tonight with my kids. I forgot how much I enjoyed it last time… Jim Carrey is genius. BUT lo’ and behold! Yes! There is mosaic in this film. Check out the scene of Uncle Monty’s yard – a couple large mosaiced snake sculptures… 🙂

Thank you to Susan Walden for pointing out the Chagall Mosaic in Chicago in the classic film Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. Love that movie and this scene made it!!
Hoping that this will be screened here in Australia at some point in the near future… Australia has a thing for being really behind.
I have to say I’m not a big Woody Allen fan, but I quite enjoyed this film – an interesting look at love I suppose, without all the happily-ever-after necessarily. Set in Barcelona, so of course Parc Guell and some of the gorgeous mosaics are featured… Will get there some day soon again. Am plotting my mosaic-world trip 🙂 Anyway, good movie but easy a DVD one.
Yes… it has been a while! I’ve been somewhat inundated of late and this here blog just seems to go to the wayside in moments of anxiety 😉
Anyway, I’ve been meaning to add this film for ages – Charlie Wilson’s War. In my opinion, not the best movie ever made (that’s an understatement) and really only worth watching for Hoffman’s performance (that man is a genius!). The other two main actors really do nothing – I mean NOTHING – for me. But there is mosaic aplenty 🙂
So I was really surprised to get to the end of this movie and find that David Schwimmer, of all people, directed this film. OK that and the intimation that a woman would EVER get back together with a fella that left her standing, pregnant, at the altar all because he was too skeered! Not likely mate. BUT it was a good watch overall and there was a scene with walls of gorgeous mosaics!!! I am told by one of my English friends that they could be the mosaics at Portobello Road, but I couldn’t say for sure. I’ve only managed to find one mosaic mural from Portobello Road – it’s amazing, but definitely not the ones in this film.
Anyway, a good DV’ to watch at home and … okay, okay I’ll admit I got all teary at the end! 😉
If any one of you know where those mosaics are, who they were made by etc… please leave a comment and let me know!!! 🙂
