12 The Guardian Monday August 13 2001 Reviews Edinburgh film festival overdoses on saccharin U2's guts and humanity O An orgy at the Royal Albert Hall Edinburgh: film Amelie UGC MegaplexEdinburgh The 55th Edinburgh international film festival began last night with Jean-Pierre Jeimet's Amelie. Starting with this piece of lavish comic whimsy was a bit like going to Maxim's, ignoring the starters and entrees, and gorging on the richest, gooicst dessert possible. Audrey Tantou is Amelie Poulain, an innoeent gamine employed as a waitress at a Parisian eafe. She has carried over the gorgeously vivid fantasy world of her sheltered childhood into adult life. Full of impish yet benign mischief, she sets about secretly improving the lives of those around her. But these comforting games are interrupted by the grown-up shock of falling in love with u handsome and mysterious stranger, played by Mathieu Kassovitz. The most remarkable fantasy of this movie is the Paris that Jennet conjures up. It is supposed to the Paris of 1)()7. but what with the cafes and the accordion music, it could be half a century before. You almost expect to see a Nazi staff car cruise past- It is a sumptuous confection of a city, a sort of virtual-reality Paris heaven, conceived on similar lines to Woody Allen's New York or Richard Curtis's London, where the realities of poverty and racism are temporarily magicked away. (The presence of Kassovitz and Jamel Debbnu.e may in part preempt objection of this sort.) It's a lovable movie, right enough, but most lovable in the first reel when Amelie is a child, and all its wacky inventions and hyperactive Baz I-uhrmann-ish direction have a child's licence. Once in the grown-up world, it is a little wearing, and all the sucrose reaches saturation point and beyond. But it has charm, fluency and style. Buoyant and tasty an Ueflotttmte of romantic fun.

Now it is dwarfed bv giants of a new practical demonstration of the magic of audio technology. Like Yamaha home organ maestro John Shuttleworth, Graham Fellows's latest creation mines a rich vein of nerdy obsessiveness and low-horizon provinciality. Appleton is a subtle, darkly compelling invention. If anything he is too authentic. There are points at which Fellows so indulges Apple-ton's pedantry', delivered in a blocked-sinus drone, that the act threatens to become as boring as the character. But, in a desert of knob gags and everyman observation, Appieton's symposium offers a glimpse of a more idiosyncratic world. He shares with us bathetic tales of his love life. He showcases several hilarious musical pastiches, including the number he claims spawned prog rock ("Lucv. vou're in the wrong wardrobe . . . Asian is waiting i for you").

Pop U2 Manchester Arena U'J. are leaving behind the technology and irony overdoses of their past two tours. Gone are the 40 foot lemons, Trabants and phone calls to world leaders. Now Dublin's finest face Manchester in in the unforgiving glare of the house lights. This is a deliriously arrogant gesture from a band who, as Bono recently put it. are "reapplying for the job as best band in the world". Halfway through Klevation. amid scenes of increasing hysteria, the point has been rammed home with the subtlety of a sledgehammer. Down go the lights and the audience erupt. If the album All That You Can't Leave Behind sees Ui2 rediscovering the art of writing simple, great songs, this stripped down show sees them relying on old-fashioned stagecraft. Whether Bono is writhing in the front row, or seemingly staring out each member of the 11,000-plus audience, the band is on a mission to entertain. However, it becomes clear that this is not a regular performance; Bonosoons sounds hoarse and emotional. In a defining moment, he dedicates Kite to his father Bob Hewson, who "has only days left in this world". Thereafter, things take a darker turn, and every' song seems laden with almost unbearable poignancy. Once, U2 gigs were about political ire and celebration. This has both, with Bono indignant on behalf of third world debt campaigning organisation Drop the Debt, while Sunday Nat.oral Astronomjcal Observatory of Japan generation of telescopes that have mushroomed there like : nowhere else on liarth. Gemini North, with an aperture of R.l-m and an identical twin in Chile, is an international collaboration involving the USA, the UK. and others. Japan runs the 8.2-m Subaru telescope while private funds have built the two io-m Keck telescopes, currently the world's largest optical-infrared telescopes. Indeed, there are plans to link them with a battery of smaller telescopes to match the light-grasp of a H-ni mirror and the resolving power of a 95-m telescope. Although Mauna Kea leads in telescopic fire-power, Cerro Paranal in Chile comes a close second. There the liuropean Southern Observatory (liSOj has the Very Uirge Telescope (VI.T), four H.'2-m telescopes with the combined punch of a lfi. 1-m. KSO, a liuropean intergovernmental i irgania-tion, operates other southern telescopes, too, but has never counted Britain amongst its members. That should change net year when British astronomers hope to join, paying part of our joining fee in the form of a new 1-m visual and infrared survey telescope, VISTA, to be sited alongside the VI.T. Alan Pickup r Unbearably poignant . . . U2's Bloody Sunday features mass participation. But death repeatedly looms large on the singer's mind. He speaks movingly about Frank Sinatra and lan Curtis ("We robbed a few bits off Joy Division . . . wish he was still here"), and croaks I.ennon's tearfully retrospective In My Life. I lis "prayers" for peace in Ireland seem more impassioned than ever. L'2's unassailable rise to greatness has not been at the expense of sincerity. But as the band somehow haul themselves through a two-hour set and Bono's voice takes up residency at the last chance saloon, the gig becomes a testament to the man's Herculean determination to go on with the show. No classic, but a triumph for guts, honour and humanity over rock's pretence and plastic soni. Dave Simpson V2 phiy Xl'C, Birmingham (0121-780 tVi.il tumitrrou-and Wednesday, then tour.

Last season saw the world premiere of Mark-Anthony Turnage's Fractured Lines, and this year Poul Ruders's Studium received its first British performance. Glennic was partnered by Gert Mortensen and the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra under Thomas Dausgaard. Studium is an unusual concerto. It is a 15-minute movement that begins as a ch.ios of tiny fragments, but turns into an obsessive crescendo. The percussionists are the engine-room of the piece. They drive the orchestra lorwards with a vast array of metal instruments and huge suspended drums. The orchestral writing is an intricate web of superimposed patterns. Individual lines, such as a lush horn melody, emerge from the texture, only to (li.sappear again beneath the teeming surface. The most striking music in Studium happen after its brutally noiy climax. Above a procession of quiet chords, the soloists start to caress pairs of cymbals. Tliey meet in the centre of the stage, and their instruments touch, creating a shimmer of cymbal sound. It's like a distant echo of the huge energy of the rest of the piece. Glennic and Mortensen performed Ruders's mysterious drama with compelling phsicalit. fa'i rrr .. ... .

Lutoslawski's Fourth : Symphony next to ; Studium. The symphony, which is Lutoslawski's last work, ends with another musical aftershock. In the wake of an enormous peroration, a solo violin floats above a clarinet and viola chord. But where Ruders's coda is theatrical. Lutoslawski's is part of an impressively integrated structure. From the opening, the piece is fuelled by contrast: slow, lyrical music is juxtaposed with wild ; chromatic energy. The two extremes are synthesised in the dense second move- ' ment. hut the piece is full of surprises. Dausgaard was alive to every twist and turn of the symphony's : supple argument, and : the orchestra played with vivid directness. Sibelius's Second ' Symphony is one of the composer's best-loved works. But Dausgaard made it seem as fresh and radical as the modern pieces on the programme. The second movement veered between violence and lyricism, while the finale moved towards its final fanfare with inexorable momentum. Tom Service The concert is rehnuidcast tin Radio 3 on Thursday.

It needs an ensemble of superlumuin dimensions and commanding virtuosity, and is enough to give the most seasoned professional players sleepless nights. For a youth orchestra. Turangalila would seem to present almost impossible difficulties. But then the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain is no ordinary youth hand. The HiO members, conducted by Andrew Davis, hail totally mastered the technical problems of Hie piece. Far from being overawed by the symphony's scale, they plaed with a dedication and commitment that would have put many pioi'es-sional ensembles to sli.une. From the u nod wind and brass soloists to the back desks of the strings, the musicians gave it all their energy and concentration. Yet there was no hint of youthful impetuosity or inexperience. Instead, there was a perfectly polished balance between the sections, and an acute .sensitivity in their phrasing. They Sun hrs Ram TempC Weather in H L Idayl ". " 2z Tl ' n.; " dL't" lu r. "j..

And there was much more to this performance than technical excellence. Davis shaped his interpretation magnificently. The 10 n l ove me n ts o f Tu ra ngal i 1 a can sound like an indulgent chaos of orgiastic passion. But he made the piece seem properly symphonic as well as genuinely dioinsian. The first four movements built up a huge swell of tension which was released in the glorious fifth movement. The Joy of the Blood of the Stars. The NYO launched into this cosmic scherzo with total abandon. The slow sixth movement was a necessary come-down after this sensual bliss. Davis emphasised the musical contrasts between each movement - such as the clockwork rigour of the ninth and the thrilling dance of the finale and revealed how much more there is toTuran-g.ilila than orgasmic excess. For all the NYO's brilliance. l'ierre-Laurent Aimard's performance of the solo piano part as perhaps even more impressive.

But the Pinocchio scampering about the Open Air Theatre is almost shockingly impish. He is a. self-styled "clever-clogs smarty-pants" who calls his father Geppetto "wiggy-bum" and denounces his fairy guardian as a "boring old bitch", liven when a bout of particularly fruity fibbing causes his nose to sprout into an 18 inch baguette, he is more interested in nibbling the crust than expressing remorse. Such flagrant misbehaving not only thrills all the children in the audience but instils in them the spirit of mischief: there is a lot of audience participation, and most of it contradicts the actors' expectations. It is testament to Dale Superville's charming exuberance as the jelly-limbed puppet that not even a heavy shower could distract his captivated young viewers. His performance is certainly the great strength of Unicorn theatre company's imperfect production. Much of the problem lies in Michael Rosen's spry adaptation of the Italian fairy tale, which j is like its little wooden i hero a little too fond of i its own wit and playfulness, i There are some fine passages ; of clowning, a puppet-show j is cleverly incorporated, i and the songs are fun, but a j good quarter of the two-hour I running time is padded with ! reiterated gags. ! There is little in the way of i visual invention: Sophia ; Lovell Smith's set converts , easily enough into Geppetto's : little home, a stage for a 1 puppet show and a Gypsy's 1 caravan, but it isn't until a wave shifts in a wink to create j shark's teeth that you feel theatrical magic is being cre-l ated.
