Salmon Fishing in the Yemen at Tarbert Film Club tomorrow

This romantic comedy,  starring Ewan McGregor and Emily Blunt is showing on Saturday 13th October at 8:00 pm in the Templar Arts & Leisure Centre in Tarbert. Doors open 7:30pm for complimentary refreshments.

Salmon Fishing in the Yemen is a 2011 romcom where  a visionary sheik believes his passion for the peaceful pastime of salmon fishing can enrich the lives of his people, and he dreams of bringing the sport to the not so fish-friendly desert.

Willing to spare no expense, he instructs his representative to turn the dream into reality, an extraordinary feat that will require the involvement of Britain’s leading fisheries expert who happens to think the project both absurd and unachievable.

That is, until the Prime Minister’s overzealous press secretary latches on to it as a ‘good will’ story.

The Mirror’s film critic said: ‘With such polished performers as McGregor, Blunt and that acting jewel in the crown Kristin Scott Thomas on board, its odd-couple love story (and stunning locations) delivers the right balance between laughs and romance.

  1. It’s absolute rubbish and requires the total suspension of disbelief – so it’s a bit like For Argyll in that respect….

  2. Having read the book a few years back while working in the Yemen…I was looking forward to seeing the film. I watched it last week while flying out to Iraq. Though entertaining, the actual film is based on a romantic relationship…rather than the original context of hope and mans ability (though somewhat misguided) to control nature.
    I still feel that reading the book in the Yemen was a coupe…and that the film is a flop.
