Café Fellini on Victoria

After watching Little Fish on Sunday, Lucy and I spent too long talking about it in the car afterwards. So by the time we left to have dinner, it was already quite late. We decided to head to Fish Face at Darlinghurst — except they don’t do Sundays. Alright, then how about our favourite restaurant, Wasavie, in Paddington? Ah, they close a bit earlier on Sundays.

So by now we were desperate, petrified at the though of having to starve to death (in Sydney city no less). So we ended up at Café Fellini on Victoria St, Darlinghurst. Luciky, the kitchen was still open!

It’s a little place, open out the front, coolly lit. I had the Penne Calabrese, which was way too salty and Lucy had the Salmon Ravioli (with white sauce), which was miserable all-round. Oh, and we had garlic bread. What can I say? We were hungry. The service was cold and uncaring, but I must admit passable.

I give it 1.5 out of 5 — stay away unless you’re desperate.

Little Fish — had potential

'Little Fish' posterSorry for not having updated for a while, I’ve been a bit busy over the weekend an the following few days.

On Sunday Lucy and I went and watched the new Australian film Little Fish starring Cate Blanchett, Sam Neill, Hugo Weaving, Dustin Nguyen and Noni Hazelhurst — really, an all-star Australian cast.

Exerpt from the official synopsis:

How do you learn to love again when the pain of the past won’t let you go? When you’re 32 with a troubled history and a doubtful future, it’s a question that isn’t so easy to answer. And for Tracy Heart (Cate Blanchett), it’s a question she can no longer ignore. A story about families. About lies. And about learning to love again.

The film is beautifully shot and the acting is unbelievably real. However, I left Little Fish feeling terribly disappointed. It had so much potential to be the quintessential Australian film we’ve been waiting years for, yet it just couldn’t follow through.
