I'm a huge fan of the small but exquisite oeuvre of spanish writer/director Julio Medem, so I was a bit pissed off to find out this week that his latest movie, Caotica Ana, doesn't seem to be getting a UK release. It's been released in Spain in August 07 and in various countries since (Germany due for November), but the IMDB has no release date for the UK. :(
Looks like this country is getting more insular by the minute ... When Le Clezio got the Nobel prize for literature a couple of weeks ago, it emerged that none of his books are in print in the UK at the moment. We've got American TV on 900 channels, what do we need European books and movies for ?
