ITopperRetums (U) (Roy del Ruth. US. 1941) Roland Young. Joan Blondell. Eddie Anderson. Dennis O'Keefe. Carole Landis. 87 mins. Slicker than the original. but with Blondell and O'Keefe asthe supernatural couple this time. A well-paced spoof on murder mysteries. with Topper (Young) solving the murder of a girl. helped out by her ghost. Edinburgh: Filmhouse. I True Identity (15) (Charles Lane. US. 1991) Lenny Henry. Frank Langella.J.T. Walsh. Anne-Marie Johnson.Andreas Katsulas. 95 mins. See review. Glasgow: Odeon. Edinburgh: Odeon. UCl. Strathclyde: Odeon Ayr. Odeon Hamilton. UCl Clydebank. UCI East Kilbride. I Truly, Madly, Deeply (PG) (Anthony Minghella. UK. 1990) Juliet Stevenson. Alan Rickman. Bill Paterson. 103 mins. Nina. a young translator. thinks her life is falling apart when her lover dies. But when he returns. albeit with a cold and looking a little paler. she begins to question her previous notions of happiness. A wonderfully literate screenplay by first-time director Minghella and a faultless performance by Stevenson raise Truly. Madly. Deeply above the level of its American counterpart. Ghost. Edinburgh: Filmhouse. lTrust(15) (Hal Hartley. US. 1990) Adrienne Shelly. Martin Donovan. Merritt Nelson. 90mins. Sec preview. Glasgow: GFT. Edinburgh: Filmhouse. I Uncle Buck (12) (John Hughes. US. 1989) John Candy. Amy Madigan. Gaby Hoffman. 100 mins. Hughes' prolific career as maestro of teenage angst continues unabated in this latest comic outpouring on the traumas and trivialities of growing up. Candy's Buck initially appears to be an overweight. clumsy. tactless slob. the last person you'd ask to look after your kids. but here he gets the chance to look after three of his brother's kids for the weekend. A carefully plotted and well scripted moral fable living upto the standards expected from the director of The Breakfast Club. Edinburgh: Filmhouse. I The ValiantDnes (15) (King Hu. Hong Kong. 1974) Roy Chiao. Pai Ying. Hsu Feng. Zhao Lei. 106 mins. Simultaneously a piece of Ming Dynasty historiography and an innovative. fast-paced adventure story that reunites the writer/director and three of the stars from A Touch ()fZert. A team of peasants and intellectuals is assembled by a Chinese official to wage a war of strategy. not confrontation. with Sino-Japanese pirates. But the plot is really no more than an excuse for some stunning martial arts set pieces that are derived from the more abstract Peking Opera tradition. Glasgow: GFT. I Watership Down (U) (Martin Rosen. UK. 1978) With the voices ofJohn Hurt. Richard Briers. Ralph Richardson. Roy Kinnear. 92 mins. Richard Adam‘s best-seller is transformed into this pretty animation adventure that lacks most of the tension and unique viewpoint of the book. When their warren is threatened by man . a group of rabbits decide to find a new home many miles away. Remembered (unfortunately) for Art Garfunkel‘s Number One hit. ‘Bright Eyes‘. Central: MacRobert Arts Centre. I Willow (PG) (Ron Howard. US. 1988) Warwick Davis, Val Kilmer. Joanne Whalley, Jean Marsh. 126 mins. A mystery baby turns up in the land ofthe little Nelwyn people. and one of their number has to return it to the adult-sized land ofthe Daikini. but the kid turns out to be someone special. Would-be blockbusting fairtytale epic offers producer George Lucas an opportunity to refashion Star Wars in a setting straight from Tolkien. The result is not unentertaining, but we've seen it too many times before. Strathclyde: UCl East Kilbride.
