Michael Palins Hemingway Adventure (DVD)
Monty Python’s Michael Palin follows up the success of his travel shows, treading in the far-flung footsteps of one of the 20th century’s most celebrated writers, and Palin’s hero, Ernest Hemingway.
Depressive, disaster-prone, alcoholic and much married, Hemingway is viewed through the various locations he visited and wrote about in his novels. Comparing modern-day locations with rare archive footage featuring Hemingway, Palin follows him through Cuba, Spain, Kenya and many other places. Palin’s brand of light-hearted curiosity is very much in evidence as he looks at the novelist’s obsession with the bullfight, passion for reckless driving and, of course, his literature.
