FOR WEEK BEGINNING

Until May 1 Arian natives will be preoccupied
with financial planning, work activities
and daily schedules. April 19-23 activate
these potentials in your life. Arian natives
are restless to achieve all those things on
their agenda at the moment. Despite your
impulsiveness, everything seems to work out
the way you want it.
Over the sixteen days between April 15 and

attending to personal plans, money matters,
children's activities or recreational pursuits.
There is plenty of activity around the home
and with family members during April 16-19.
Whilst things are disorganised, you are happy.
Gemini's mind will be directed to the attention
of extremely private matters until May
1; there may be concerns over domestic
arrangements or health issues. The Gemini
mind naturally moves at a rapid pace, and the
stellar aspects that are operational during

Your mind is increasingly stimulated by
regular personal affairs and business during
the sixteen days from April 15. Use this time

during April 16-19, but out of the chaos will
come order. Appearances can be deceiving:
you are on top of the situation.
Finances, specifically loans, insurance and
taxation issues, require your attention in a
detailed way over the sixteen days from April
15, especially during April 19-23. April 16-19

business partnerships will be the focus
of your attention until May 1, with many
discussions revolving around common

patterns, responsibilities and interaction
with those in your working sphere during
the sixteen days from April 15. You are in a
positive frame of mind during April 16-19,

Recreational activities will be one of many
themes in your life until May 1, with many
Capricorn individuals likely to become
more involved with work mates in socially
orientated activities. There is a tendency to
exorbitance during April 16-19, but you have
a plan in mind. You are in control of these
budgetary considerations, despite these
allowances that must be made.
You will become more engrossed in
domestic routine and or daily management
of children until May 1. This can be quite an
enjoyable time when shared with family
members. April 16-19 will see good fortune
bestowed upon your partner, making both

changes that would previously have been
Life moves at a hectic pace until May 1, when
you will be busied by letters, phone calls and
trips. Make sure you are organised, to avoid
falling behind in your usual schedules. You
are a real time-waster during April 16-19, but
then you feel you can afford this little luxury
at the moment. There is a lot going for you:
you've earned a break.

FILM REVIEW -- SAMBA
Humour lightens dramatic flick
Omar Sy plays the titular
character in Samba.
The big screen
Samba is a Senegalese man who has
been living in Paris for 10 years. He
keeps a low profile and works menial
jobs because he entered the country
without the proper work documents.
Alice is a French woman who has,
as she puts it, blown a fuse. Job stress
causes her to have a breakdown.
She undertakes work at a refugee
centre to get her emotional bearings
and refocus her life.
Samba and Alice meet at the
refugee centre and immediately strike
a bond. Alice gives Samba her phone
number within minutes of meeting
Samba handles the vexed question
of refugees and their legal status.
When it s convenient, the French
authorities look the other way.
It is also made clear that refugees
are essential to the French economy as
they are used by temporary
employment agencies to do lowly paid
jobs in the construction industry.
Without them, many projects would
not be completed.
It is a mutually beneficial situation.
Family is crucial in Samba s life.
Samba s family in Senegal depends on
him for the money he sends in order
for them to live better. Samba s uncle
Lamouna, who has lived and worked
as a chef in Paris for decades, assists
Samba, which puts his status at risk.
Despite the seriousness of the topic,
directors Olivier Coulin and Muriel
Coulin inject humour into the film. In
this case, drama and comedy make
unusual yet compatible bedfellows.
The window washing sequence
featuring Samba and his French
Algerian mate Wilson is hilarious.
The film could have been tighter
with judicious editing but the slow and
gentle pace is appropriate to both the
wider issues linked to immigration and
the relationship between Alice and
Different perspective provides story depth
Canberra s Teatro Vivaldi presents The
Last Five Years, featuring two superb
casts of Vanessa de Jager and Fraser
Findlay and Josie Dunham and
The show follows the story of a
five-year relationship from the outset,
through marriage and eventually
The story is brought to life with
beautiful and stirring music and
toe-tapping jams from a live band of
Canberra s leading performers.

Last Five Years follows a format where

of the relationship back to the
beginning, while the man tells his
story from start to finish. The Last Five
Years will be showing at Teatro Vivaldi
at the ANU Arts Centre this month
from Friday, April 24, to Saturday,
