sorry, cari, i didn't mean to say that the film: 'our
daily bread' was upsetting'... freya said that she was
in a mood in which she would find it upsetting (or
that is what i read)... i took that to mean that she
was in a mood in which she might be more easily upset
than on other days... i know i certainly have days
when things upset me more easily than on other
days.... and i was simply suggesting something else
to watch in case she wasn't in the mood for that one.
i didn't mean to call the film upsetting.
in fact, i haven't seen it yet... it's on the shelf
right now waiting for me to watch it tonight or

film will always have the same emotional impact on
every viewer... upsetting, uplifting, irritating,
exciting.... i think that those sort of reactions
really depend on the viewer and what he or she is
going through and experiencing during the moment of
sorry if i accidentally labelled a film according to
an emotional reaction it might incite in a particular
viewer... i should have replied to freya off list i
