    There's a bunch of polish artists who make Shakespeare themed posters and some are quite interesting.

    This one is a bit distasteful but in its defence the subject matter is Shakey's goriest and bloodiest play on the bill.

    Recently I watched Henry V starring Kenneth Branagh. He is trully a talented actor who played quite a few roles in movies based on Shakespeare's plays. I think people who enjoy Shakespeare's plays will find that movie interesting.

    His acting sometimes has a reputation for being a bit wooden but I disagree. If ever you get the opportunity, listen to his audio adaption (archangel series) of Hamlet. It's quite brilliant.

    Sad to hear some don't fully appreciate him as an actor (I think he is one of the last contemporary british actors who can actually act)

    In my opinion Henry V deserves more recognition and respect (just for the sake of motivational speeches)


    Laurence Olivier (1944) - magnificent

    Nothing to do with the above but what country do you live in, Adrian? If you don't mind me asking. I've been meaning to ask since we've began talking is all.

    Ahh, I speak polish (a bit) to poles on my run but I've now lost my polish mate as he's changed jobs and went with him my daily lessons on the basics. I've now deteriorated a bit over the last month or so.

    There's a polish secretary on another run that I sometimes work and she enjoys bantering, correcting and complimenting my polish but it's too few and far between that I work that run. There's other lads like a chap called Rahuta but he's busy a lot as he runs a unit so I don't push it.

    I fear we may have spoken about this before but I'd not remembered it was you until now. I thought bitmap but he's german so I'm guessing it was you. Apologies if it was.

    I thought Adrian lived in Spain. I thought he was a native Spanish speaker.
