The Berlin Film Festival is over and ‘Hallam Foe’ has been received very well! The various German and English reviews I’ve read unanimously praise the performances, especially of leading actor Jamie Bell. Some also call the film itself a film jewel. I’ve added some english reviews to this site’s press archive. The film was a favourite with both the critics and the audience making it a likely contender for the main prize. However, the winners of the Berlin Film Festival were all rather unexpected and unpredictable. Read more about it in the messageboard.
Still, director David Mackenzie won a SILVER BEAR FOR THE BEST MUSIC for the use of music in Hallam Foe! Congratulations!!

After all the tiresome problems I recently encountered with my previous host I moved the site to GoDaddy.Com. All the information is here already. But please bear with me while I’m working on getting all the over 8,000 pictures and videos on the new server. There might also be some other minor temporary problems, but rest assured I’m working on it!
I’ve corrected the name of Sophia’s new role in ‘Outlander’: it’s Freya. And welcome our new affiliate: a site for Sophia’s new costar Jim Caviezel.
Don’t forget! ‘Tristan & Isolde’ is available on DVD in the UK as of coming Monday!
‘Resonance’ – the site about Sophia’s ‘Colditz’-costar Tom Hardy is open again! And visit our other new affiliates:

The latest UK release information (I hope this is definite) for ‘Hallam Foe’ is January 26, 2007.
When you visit the film’s blog you’ll see that they’re trying to build up great mouth-to-mouth-publicity. Part of the strategy are also MySpace accounts for the film characters. Visit the ones for Hallam Foe (Jamie Bell) and Kate Breck (Sophia Myles). Remember, these accounts are for fictive movie characters and the people managing are not the actors but the movie’s publicity people!!
