The Village

by Doc M (PG)

Noah & Ivy in happy times

M Night Shyamalan's off-beat Hardy-esque drama The Village captured my imagination thanks to a gorgeous soundtrack, exquisite photography, the spirited and appealing heroine Ivy (Bryce Dallas Howard) and the tragic waif Noah (Adrien Brody). Somehow it has collided in my mind with Werner Herzog's Kaspar Hauser: Every Man for Himself and God Against All , which I saw about 20 years ago at the German Film Society in St Andrews. I began to develop this slightly odd notion of Noah as a kind of Kaspar Hauser figure in 'The Towns'. However, my intention is to give the lad a happier ending...
