a proper use portrait of cure a is warts and all for achievements or segments the nucular destruction her discoveries will unleash peace and leave my love for actress rosamund pike place curious headstrong bordering on erica. little body would say open castle with one with women with us and she genius is ok but as it comes to women women they always have to be perfect they always have to be sweet and they have to be nice and. i don't know in any sweet woman. trap easy on screen curry is definitely not sweet radioactive is a portrait of a complex contradictory woman whose ideas transformed our world. and scott writes for joins me now very true what she just said that as you mentioned in the report when i korea double nobel prize winner alleged great figure in science so does this fill do her justice my feet in unfortunately not quite i mean it's a perfectly decent film and of course. really is. a strawberry woman did an
11:47 pm
extraordinary things but this for me is a bit too much of an ordinary biopic for such an amazing woman i mean it's quite sort of by the numbers by the book style film that we've seen numerous times with with male protagonist what i find interesting though toppy she originally was a graphic artist she was originally a cartoonist and just incredible visual style and this film is also very impressive visually and i think it's most interesting when she sort of breaks away from the traditional bio pic and she does include interesting things visually and and connects cories achievements in science with what will come after and links it to the disasters that will come afterwards including the nuclear bomb which probably wouldn't be possible that some of this coverage she made and what she does that sort of breaks the balance of the traditional biopic i think really really works unfortunately she does it too doesn't do it too often and usually it's a fairly by the numbers job there seems to be a trend for biopics about famous women a moment yeah very much so in fact it's interesting that even called the subject
11:48 pm
author of feminist bio pics you have a series of films which are about famous women who were very influential in inventing the cause of women so we have this film we have a ruth bader ginsburg there was a great documentary on her the supreme court justice now there's a biopic out on her you have harriet tubman the african-american abolitionist even even helen reddy the australian singer who created the feminist anthem i am woman she has a new a new film about her interesting though or sadly i think with the 1st wave of feminist biopics what seems to unite them is that they're all kind of conventional and not really that good none of them are horrible i've seen all of them but they're they're a bit too too conventional too too safe and it seems almost as if these directors and they're all female directors have made these films are a bit too respect full of their of their subjects and are really taking taking our chances in my pic but still talking about my picks the director is this directors 1st film was was almost flat wasn't it. yes interesting her. as i said she was
11:49 pm
a cartoonist a graphic artist and she had a great graphic novel persepolis which she dropped it herself as her 1st try as a director and this is her own story it's a story of her a growing up in iran she was born just after the iranian revolution she lived through the rain around iraq war and then she emigrated to europe where she experienced some cultural and sexual liberation but also a new forms of prejudice and oppression an amazing film an amazing debut and it was won the jury prize in cannes when it debuted it was nominated for an oscar really really impressive work i remember i remember through chemo and i shall remember the film we can see from those films that from those pictures that really innovative is this what's lacking in such a new movie yeah i think so i mean i remember seeing persepolis it just blew me away also because it was such an interesting new story but the way she told it i mean she took so much from her own work as a graphic artist and put was able to tell incredible scenes with just
11:50 pm
a simple squiggle or a certain line really taking the cartoon a static and bringing it into film which i'd never seen before and you see glimpses of that in radioactive some of the visual elements that she brings into the film but the film for me is far too conventional really wish you'd she was able to break loose ok now you interviewed some length in spite of your problems with the new film is she going to be a name to watch out for i think so yeah i don't think she's ever lived up to the last couple of films that she's made hasn't lived up to early promise but we see with this film that she can do a sort of by the numbers biopic she can sort of make a bigger picture with bigger stars i hope that means hollywood have the confidence to give her more money to tell her own stories and to take more risks meeting her she's a force of nature i definitely think the new and better things are to come for ok scott as always a mine of information thanks very much. all this year there are various exhibitions and events taking place around the world celebrating the genius

of a an art adventurer who died 500 years ago the last 3 years of his life spent in the valley in france now we joined today in our experts who introduced us to some of the amazing ideas he dreamt up as well as some architectural influences leonardo left behind in the region. the most beautiful castles in the one family completely in the style of leonardo da vinci. the italian renaissance man spent the final years of his life at the chateau duke loulou see him on the wall at the invitation of king francis the 1st now 2 experts from france and germany have come to follow in their nice geniuses footsteps the basement of the palace exhibits machines fashioned after some of the vinci sketches the principle behind his designs was always the same he and lies what he saw broke it down and rearrange them into something new.
11:52 pm
i think the lesson we can take from you know not have to be capable of challenging ideas that have been carried on for 4 years thin cerys and even 1000000 the reefer in some 50 kilometers away. everything centers around the vinci as an engineer trying contraptions based on theoretical designs by the renaissance artist his idea started with a pair of wings that acumen could power when that didn't work the arts is simply thought up something else. this is very very close to what a modern hang glider is the man is here on his feet out here so with his hands so he can control the peach. this way of the entire machine and with his feet and he's
11:53 pm
sweet he can control the role this way. the paying to da vinci has a large exhibition dedicated to him in the gardens of truly say you can also see a tapestry of devon she's fresco the last supper on loan from the vatican. she's lost large scale projects in france was the chateau de shamble many of his earlier. from italy were incorporated in the construction. we are not trying to mix different knowledge is and knowledge is coming from different places and you know there was a master and i think this is the biggest lesson we should take now just right now from the. even 500 years ago leonardo da vinci was a morton european his drive to reinvent the world created some of the most impressive morning rounds that will continue to delight generations to come.

coincidence is. someone. that when you work in the water when you are right there at the water and using the term allies it's movement then you synchronize your internal clock with that of the water and they train a kind of unison on the art class to. china a ship where the harvest of. giant l.b. . on its way to the floating villages. in. the loop verde so play can believe we are the salt in the air attacks the photographer like a sandblaster. rudy sebastiano photographic journey has taken him all over the group planets capturing more in all its beauty and diversity.
