shielding him from the bullets. he watched the gunman walk round the mosque, hunting down the living. this is my wife. but he tells me the legacy of that day will be love, not hate. if the shooter could imagine that this will happen, he will never shoot us. we became more of a unified and the community is one. you feel that christchurch is our one city. new zealand one country. and by the way, i am sure it will change the world. the al noor mosque has now been reclaimed as a place of worship, rather than fear. but armed police officers still stand guard over this city, as it tries to recover, to heal. hywel griffith, bbc news, christchurch. now on bbc news, a look ahead to sportsday at 6.30 tonight. coming up, the premier league returns after the international break but tackling racism in

5:48 pm
magic dust. you can see it doesn't skimp on visual spectacle. the cast include danny devito and michael keaton, it's a tim burton michael gove destroy so in every corner there is stuff going on. here is the strange
5:49 pm
thing, although it is fairly impressive to see you know, a flying elephant brought to life through the miracle of cg what the film doesn't haveis miracle of cg what the film doesn't have is the simplicity that the cartoon had, and it also doesn't are is is emotional cloud clout of it. i spent time thinking this is visually impressive, a whole section of the film plays out in this future land funfair, and film plays out in this future land fun fair, and you are looking at the design, thinking that is really designed to within an inch of its life, what i didn't get was the thing which you usually get, the fa ct thing which you usually get, the fact it grabs your heart string t cartoon is dark, it is about separation and anxious issues and it makes you cry, when you wash watch it it makes you cry. i don't doubt for one minute lit find an audience and it will be perfectly fine, holiday fare but it doesn't have anything like the classic quality of the original. and the reason is it's it weirdly lacks that emotional engagement. there was something
5:50 pm
about the original cartoon that just, you know you watch it, it is like et you immediately start cry, you can't resist it. in the case of think found it engaging, for all the things that were 0k and impressive, it never gets off the ground in the way it should do. do you any that is a trend then that, the original animation actually has more heart and soulo? animation actually has more heart and soul o? not just animation actually has more heart and soul o? notjust in this film but other things that have been remade? i thought the jungle book was extraordinary but the fact of the matter is that to all intents and pups was an animated film. i don't think, there is no reason you can't take anything and redo it in a different format and add. this doesn't add. out of blue common 3 which is an unconventional kind of investigation of a murder, of a renowned astro physicist, it sounds intriguing. i loved it. it is made by carol morley. it is a radical
5:51 pm
reinvention of marty amis‘s novel. carol said she set out to rescue the characters. there is a murder investigated by a detective and because it is an astro physicist she interviewing people who are interested in particle legal universes who are interesting the conundrum of schrodingers cat. it becomes more cosmic and excel existential. the film starts in outer space, you know that film a matter of life—and—death, it begins with what looks like an homage to that. then it kind of turns into this collidescopic meditation on dual reality, i have seen the film now three times and every time i see more in it. there is this central tension between two characters, two colour, two realities, and it is one of those films that the more you look at it, the more you see. do you need to see it three times to understand it? i loved it the first
5:52 pm
time round. i thought this works as a murder mystery. the second time i thought there is more going on, by the third time i had like gone down the third time i had like gone down the rabbit hole. i was stanning to obsess about the details. it has a fantastic score. carol morley is a visionary film—maker. if you get it, it is just brilliant and i really advice to you give it a go. it is so great to see a film—maker with such am by, it was shot 23428 days, but every frame is filmed with clues and details and i, i thought it was great. it is called out of blue, not out of the blue. why is that? because, because, you have to see the film to understand why. it is 0ut the film to understand why. it is out of blue. it is between separate
5:53 pm
universes because i could go on about it all night. looking forward to that one. at eternity‘s gate. which is another film about the life of vincent van gogh. of which there have been many, most recently we had that brilliant animation loving vincent, described as the first oil painted animated film, that was breathtaking, this is willem dafoe, 0scar—nominated willem dafoe, as we discovered vincent van gogh towards the later period of his life. i went to the music in amsterdam. i said vincent van gogh? so we get his real life and his tussles with madness and with incarceration but also julian schnabel is attempting to show us the world he saw through his paintings visually represented. here isa paintings visually represented. here is a clip. i'm telling you you have to look
5:54 pm
inside. you keep saying look inside, i get it, i do. you keep repeating yourself. what do you think i'm doing? i don't invent the picture. i don't need to invent the picture. i find it already in nature. ijust have to free it. all right. i'm just saying first think about your surface and how the paint will sit on it. get control over what you're doing. maybe you should work inside more. i spent all my life alone in a room. i need to go out, and work, to forget myself. i want to be out of control. i need to be in a feverish state. it is called the act of painting for a reason. all right, calm down. i don't want to calm down. the faster i paint, the better i feel. i can't stay here vincent. what are you saying? so that line
5:55 pm
when he says it is called the act of painting for a reason. this is like the act of the act of painting and you could see from ta clip that what julian schnabel is trying to do is put you within the mind of vincent van gogh and to see the world through his eye, i think willem dafoe's performance is terrific, there was mohammeds i did believe he was the artist, schnabel is interesting because what he has done there is things like the diving bell and the butterfly. the first, so he has done biographies because he is an artist who turned to film—making, i think there are occasions when the drama meanders a bit, when it becomes a series of conversations that kind of attempt to explain how it is that the artist is seeing the world, but at its best it is, a film, a cinematic experience and i think you saw from that clip schnabel is trying to put you in the mind of the artist and say this is
5:56 pm
how he saw the world. not entirely successful but it's a good how he saw the world. not entirely successful but it's 6 of »od how he saw the world. not entirely successful but it's 6 of ad how he saw the world. not entirely successful but it's 6 of a family modern day parody of a family terrified by doppelgangers. very interesting film about nuer rev‘s deflection to the west and very well directed by ralph fiennes, are you a oi’ directed by ralph fiennes, are you a or orfilm directed by ralph fiennes, are you a or or film fan? yes, and i love get 0ut we are in complete agreement on white you. best dvd? shoplifters. it isa white you. best dvd? shoplifters. it is a story about a family on the margins of society, it may be be a thriller, a crime thriller, it may beafamily
5:57 pm
thriller, a crime thriller, it may be a family drama, it is lots of different things all mashed together. it is touching, moving and mysterious, i really liked it. don't need to see it three times to understand it. no, i got it the first time. that is is a relief. that is it from us. thank you for watching. goodbye from hello, there is more sunshine on the way this weekend but the weather will look and feel just a way this weekend but the weather will look and feeljust a bit different. beautiful day though, in the sunshine today. most of us had that sunshine. we had the highest temperatures here in sheffield and south yorkshire, 19 degrees today. but we are going to replace those gentle but warmer south—westerly breezes with something much colder, this is colder air that will sweep down across the whole of the country this weekend. now the colder air arrives to bring temperatures on sunday to typically ten degrees or so sunday to typically ten degrees or so in the afternoon. some places
5:58 pm
warmer than that, others colder, there is the colder air to the north of that band of cloud. that band of cloud is running its way slowly southwards, in across scotland. eventually arriving later in the night to northern ireland. it is bringing a bit of rain and drizzle early on. south of that we will have clearer sky afters the sunshine, it will turn chilly, there will be mist and fog as well especially to the west cou ntry and fog as well especially to the west country and temperatures in rural areas may get just west country and temperatures in rural areas may getjust below freezing again. head into the morning then, a chilly start but warming up quickfully the sunshine. there will be some areas of cloud round and it could be grey still in the morning 9.00 through the west country in across parts of the midlands as well, some low cloud coming into the north—west. there is the main band of cloud in central southern scotland, northern ireland. sunshine already coming in across northern scotland but showers, and those could u—turn wintry in shetland later on as it gets colder. we will follow that band of thicker cloud. away into northern england
5:59 pm
later on to north wales. still a little drizzle over the hills. south sunny spells and the warmth gets pushed away. 18 or 19 again. colder to the north even with sunshine temperatures struggling to make double figure, we all see the clocks changes, an hour less in bed, an hour less sleep as we move into british summer time but ironically it is getting colder, we are going to find more in the way of cloud in southern england and wales on sunday. sunny start, chilly start further north. a dry day, light winds, spells of sunshine but cooler everywhere, chilly down the eastern side of england and scotland. high pressure is going to get pushed away early next week. signs of change. it isa early next week. signs of change. it is a strange sort of change though, some uncertainties but weather fronts bringing rain to scotland and northern ireland on monday and then we change the wind direction, draw down a northerly wind. it may get even colder. bye for now.
6:00 pm
the prime minister's brexit divorce plan is rejected by parliament yet again — on the very day that the united kingdom was supposed to leave the european union. the ayes to the right 286, the noes to the left, 344. theresa may lost by 58 votes — the defeat narrower than last time — but still it is a major setback for her and for brexit. the implications of the house's decision are grave. the legal default now is that the united kingdom is due to leave the european union on the 12th of april. injust 14 days' time. that is not enough time to agree, legislate for and ratify a deal. there has to be an alternative found. and if the prime minister can't accept that, then she must go,
