I seem to be wanting humour that has some warmth and compassion for its characters.
when I need a warm, comfy smile or laugh I look for Judi Dench - As Time Goes By or my fav
which was a blink and you've missed it series. So gently funny.
There must have been something about 1981 for me, because one of my favourite sweet and tangy comedies came out that year as well.
. Most of the Bill Forsyth films have that kind of feeling for me.
The original version of The Producers will always be a favourite, partly because of its wonderful scenes of New York.
is kinda special. Definitely got the warmth and compassion factor working.
mmm Cold Comfort Farm
's a lovely choice. Give it 2 or 3 minutes. Stephen Fry's in here as well.
My Favorite Year
I could easily do a happy run through some of Johnny Depp's films - Chocolat, Finding Neverland (not a comedy, but it has gently funny moments that are lovely), Edward Scissorhands, Ed Wood ...
or Nicolas Cage
or Jack Lemmon
There are some actors whose choices I'll usually at least consider. Judi Dench first of all.
