A place you saw when you were a child, and that made its mark on you We went on a family holiday to Mauritius when I was about 10 or 11. We hired a house on a beach and a VW beetle. I remember the hills and the feeling of your heart jumping as the car raced down the other side. I remember the wonderful mix of cultures, Indian, Chinese, Creole & French, the markets filled with colours and exotic smells, the coloured earths, the coral reef and the white sand beaches. It was a magical holiday
The place you love near your home Our back garden, it’s big and spacious and completely self contained – almost like a park and it’s filled with kids in the afternoons and on weekends…
Where do you dream to go for your next family holiday Back to Venice in September 2012 – and Paris for a few days with Anya.
A film that you saw recently and that staid with you? The Iranian film ‘the separation’ is an extraordinary film. One can empathize with all the characters and it’s such a precarious and culturally sensitive situation. It is exquisitely written, acted & directed with a sense of honesty about it.
The film that you love to see with the whole family? Hugo
