This, We'd Like To See

British director Michael Winterbottom has just made a film about a film about a novel without a plot.

In other words, he's adapted Laurence Sterne's Tristram Shandy for the screen.

For those who're aware of that novel's form-defying, loopy, elliptical and experimental nature, this might be seen as impossible. But Winterbottom says: "(It) has a deliberate lack of shape or form; it has no coherence and it's full of diversions. But underneath all that, it's really just a daft but heart-warming story about a bunch of people living in a house and behaving idiotically in their own way."

Heavens, that makes it sound like Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham.


  • Daft and heartwarming... ahh, how I wish I could forward this to my English Prof!
