Favorite Movies My favourite film is “The Mission”. Partly because of the superb acting by Jeremy Irons, partly the brilliant music and partly the glories of the Igwasu Falls in Argentina which I went to visit as a result of the film.
Favorite Books My favourite book is “Brideshead Revisited” by Evelyn Waugh.
