and in our series planet berlin we need a self-taught fermentation expert from japan for supplying the unique flavor twists to some of the men's finest restaurants. it's the most successful horror film of all time believe it it a chilling funhouse romp that centers around a sinister clown that loves to eat children based on stephen king's $986.00 novel of the same name it was the 2nd adaptation of the book following a successful mini series back in 1990 and so expectations were very high for the continuation of the tale. yes. i used to live here. is it like you remember cleaner we have you feel free to look around while i get the water boiling. or.

tail he asked a music. critic do. the cats so very hot here time of year. when you feel like you could just do. it you know what they say about jerry. no one who dies here ever really need dives. maybe know. just where. it is and dad.
8:47 am
if it ever comes back. or come back. here only. ghastly stuff and my colleague melissa holroyd has joined me in the studio after putting herself through that incredible wringer symbolism pennywise the killer clown is back whether i like it or not but. the story begins with a day couple getting brutally beaten by a gang of thugs in a small town called derry and one of them is thrown off the bridge and then the evil pennywise shapeshifting clown is awoken and is ready for a feeding session happens every 27 months what happens every 27 years although we don't see many lies that much he just has of munch here and there but we don't really see him sort of feasting on people so all of the cost of the original film

they get cold upon to return to the town and take on the the clown ok so horror really is definitely not my eyes on rock and i've heard that this one lasts for 3 hours so it sounds like absolute torture to me is it any good. there's certainly a lot that's good about it it's very choppy film particularly in the middle of it there are long stretches where you see a lot of there are a lot of scenes and they all end up in the end in the jumps and it gets a little bit repetitive and also through that you lose the arch of the film you lose the sort of ongoing tension of the film and you lose a little bit of interest i have to say. yeah so also you learn pretty quickly that that pennywise doesn't people who have small parts. you know he only it's people who he doesn't the main character is only meeting people. so you can so i'm

assuming that it's nothing to compare with chapter one which was such an incredible success at the box office yet chapter one was certainly a better film i think but i think it also had the advantage in that the setting was very good the adults in derry don't care about the children the adults the adults are indifferent to the children suffering. and you know in a lot of stephen king stephen king books and stories you have this sort of didn't element is too blue and here it's that some parents don't like their kids and some adults don't like children which is a terrific setting for a film because the audience is really invested in what happens to those kids because those kids are already up against it so the 2nd chapter doesn't have this claustrophobic effect that it still suggests that the whole town is infected in a way by pennywise. it is not a shame really because it's such a terrific cast just quickly yet so great cast yes got jessica chest day and

then there's james mcavoy and there's of course bill's zog i think one of the big stands out is james ransom who plays the adult he really captures this intense neurotic wound energy that. soul that the child had definitely something for aficionados it chapter 2 perhaps not delivering quite the bang for the buck that the predecessor did but nevertheless. thank you very much for bringing us back to town thanks melissa. well if all those scary images are not your thing then our next topic should make you feel all warm and fuzzy garden gnomes are the benevolent neverland little people that have populated german garden plot since the 19th century so much so that they're really considered a fixture on germany's cultural landscape but as one of the last manufacturers prepares for retirement their future looks uncertain. pointy red hat.

shovels and aprons 1st began appearing in private gardens in the middle of the last century 1st in germany and later around the globe they symbolized industriousness although they never helped with the yard work. the production of garden gnomes in craven hoarder has changed a little over the last century the figures are made from ronnie clay which must drive for several hours before the scenes can be sponged clean. then the clay figures are fired in a kiln at more than $1000.00 degrees celcius. afterwards they're painted by hand with lots of patience and love. and i know it could be both still has lots of orders for garden gnomes some even come from france and sweden. still griebel is set to retire soon. does

taught himself how to make tasty for mental foods like me saw. in japan life revolves around food people like to go out to eat and to eat well. is this mentality is still in its infancy in germany if it ever fully develops at all. marco she needs to have specialized in traditional fermentation methods and make his products by hand in his store here he mixes soy beans with rice and then sprinkles the mixture with cody fungus which produces a tasty mold during storage. one in japan there are great machines which do this and you can use koji to make something savory like soy sauce. so we have those.

1st products can be used in a variety of ways we currently use the beef place we use really strong beef broth and then we are dismissal to it which gives it a really great aroma and then we take these fermented lentils we use them as a side dish to create a little taste explosion. employing japanese traditions as his ticket to success in berlin was never part of marcus's plans. this is sure it's nice to introduce people to things from your homeland and it's something that's not very well known so that makes me happy that i'm doing this mainly because it comes so naturally. the name mimi furman's is a play on the japanese characters for taste and beauty and that great combination has proved the secret to marcus she meets to success.
