Review of the week
'The film starts quite well. It shows us how much technology impacts on our everyday modern lives. However the concept of falling in love with a cyberspace PC entity is just taken too far for anyone to be taken in. If it had more humour then the ridiculous could be taken at face value. The plot descends into such sloppy romantic slush that I found several scenes embarrassing. In fact, the long repetitive scenes of out right maudlin sentiments coupled with endless romantic piano music in the background were just so cringeworthy that it was extreme even for an American film.'

Mamounia Lounge Mayfair
An Arabic restaurant and bar situated in Mayfair, just a short stroll from Buckingham Palace, Hyde Park and Piccadilly Circus. Deep purples and reds surround the venue to give the vibe of a shisha lounge, which is what Mamounia is. The Middle Eastern menu features traditional Moroccan and Lebanese dishes, with plenty of charcoal-grilled meats, including tagine with half a chicken, and spiced lamb couscous. Baklava tops the dessert menu, plus saffron cheesecake and briouat (filo pastry filled with mixed nuts). At this Mayfair branch visitors can enjoy live music every weekend, plus belly dancers and DJs.
Venue says: “Find us in Mayfair for Lebanese and Moroccan cuisine, signature cocktails and weekend live music. Great spot for shisha in London.”
