The Sun (2014)The great man was spoilt for choice over who made the final cut. The Sun (2010)We hoped to spoil the party and we did. Times, Sunday Times (2012)Why spoil it now with secrets and lies? Times, Sunday Times (2006)She added that she would be spoiling her ballot in protest.

Già a me il Mac food fa schifo (e non per motivi ideologici, semplicemente perchè lo ritengo di livello poco sopra al cibo per cani), ma a volte quando si dice “adesso facciamo veramente la maialata”, per amicizia mi faccio fregare. E stamattina mi è sembrato di avere un macigno nello stomaco. Stasera in palestra mi ammazzo..

Of course, the whole thing is a set up by the mother who, having recognised one of the sailors the father of the child, takes the money before declaring who she is! Gavin Greig, the assiduous Scottish song collector found nine versions, which he titled The Foundling Baby, though singers throughout England and Scotland have preferred to use another broadside title The Basket of Eggs. In the late 1950s Ken Stubbs collected a version from a Gypsy called Frank Smith and a recording of the song, sung by Frank wife Minty Smith, can be heard on the CD My Father the King of the Gypsies. (tratto da qui).

The glen is a comparatively short one, and consists of two parts, the upper and the lower glens. The trap formation at the top of the upper glen which separates it from the hollow meadow land beyond and to the west of it, bears evidence of having been worn down by the overflow of water, probably from a lake formed there by the ponded back water of the Capellie burn that now flows past the old mill and under the bridge on the Capellie road. The upper reach of the glen is short but picturesque, and the descent from the trap which separates it from the lower glen is rapidly made by a series of broken rocks, and as the water plunges over them a succession of foaming white falls is produced, which, when the burn is in flow, have a grand appearance, especially when viewed from below.

A priori, sembrava buona anche l’ idea di dare alla storia un andamento picaresco: però il regista ha premuto troppo sul tasto della fiaba, e questa era un’ idea meno buona. L’ Elias di Scamarcio, che arriva in Europa credendola l’ Eden e si ritrova protagonista di un calvario, è una figurina troppo astratta, un naif (anche se alle prese con una cultura diversa dalla sua, e perciò incomprensibile) troppo lunare perché riusciamo a credergli.Con tanti drammi, melodrammi e docu drammi, nessuno aveva ancora visto l’immigrato come un novello Candide. Ci pensa a sorpresa (e un po’ in ritardo) Costa Gavras in questa saga cucita addosso al fascino adolescenziale di Scamarcio.
