Wednesday 3 December - Mr. Turner

We went to see the new movie Mr. Turner at the Balzac Theatre just off the Champs Élysées. It is a well appointed cinema similar to the Bytowne. The seating is very comfortable and there were flowers on the stage. It was introduced by the owner. The movie was quite good . It showed the well known British painter,  J.W.M. Turner as an eccentric who had a formal house as well as a mistress in another house. The movie could have explored in more depth some of the paintings, the only ones shown in any detail were the Fighting Temeraire and Rain, Steam and Speed.
