Beginners and Cocolat
Merkel & Myrtle saw the movie "Beginners" recently. This was a melancholy film. The depiction of the relationships between the various characters in general was excellent but the themes of sadness put a dampner on the relationship between the two main characters. The relationship between the main character, played by Ewen McGregor and his dog had more electricity than his relationship with the character played by the georgious Melanie Laurent, which seemed inexplicable. This is a senstive and enjoyable film but a little slow in patches.
Merkel had the chilli hot chocolate in Cocolat at Rundle Street afterwards. This packed a good punch and went well with the jaffa chocolate cake.
