Anotace
TOO MANY GHOSTS

Directed, filmed and edited by Ian Woodward.

Cast: Petros Koukoulomatis, David Sutherland, Mandy Carr, Eva Woodward.

Screenplay and Verse by Ian Woodward.

Music by Sir Edward Elgar.

Narrated by Beth Mayoh.

“Too Many Ghosts” is a fictionalised commentary on the folly of war set in Europe between the last five days of the Second World War and a few days after the end of hostilities.

Joe Franklin, a young corporal in Britain’s illustrious 350-year-old East Yorkshire Regiment, is reminiscing about the horrors of war and the mental scars it inflicts on the physically and mentally injured.

He is filled with remorse at the memories of those very close to his heart that have perished. Many are missing but some have been returned home to be buried in towns and villages up and down the British Isles.

Joe’s story is told against the musical backdrop of England’s great national composer, Sir Edward Elgar (1857-1934), Master of the King’s Musick, with poetry by some of the country’s great war poets, including Rupert Brooke and Laurence Binyon, and specially-composed verse by the film-maker.

REVIEWS


THE INSTITUTE OF AMATEUR CINEMATOGRAPHERS, UK, WRITES:
"The International Film Festival 'Love a Man' takes place in Oswiecim (better known under its WW2 German name Auschwitz), in Poland, which means the festival’s title is not implying what you might otherwise have thought. It deals with the way people deal with other people. Only one British film was selected for screening, Ian Woodward’s 'Too Many Ghosts'. This film has had success at several festivals and is being shown 13 times between 5 December and 24 February at the Imperial War Museum in London. Ian commented: 'Never in a million years, when I was making the film, did I expect that audiences would be watching it in both a London war museum and in the former Auschwitz. The thought of it is quite spine-numbing."

DAVID ROBERTS, EDITOR, THE WAR POETRY WEBSITE, WRITES:
"I found 'Too Many Ghosts' very interesting to watch. The early montages of warfare were particularly well done, very professional. Another highlight was the reading of the poem with the film-maker’s granddaughter, Eva, as the Child of Hope. The cast did very well."

MAXINE KENDALL, ENGLISH-BORN, CANADA-BASED POET WHOSE POEM, A WISH, FEATURES IN THE FILM, WRITES:
"'Too Many Ghosts' is a truly wonderful film. So creative and well thought out. I love how the colour film is interspersed with old black-and-white footage. Ian Woodward has given us a look at war in quite a unique way. I love everything about the film: the actors, the voice-overs, the music, the cinematography. The way everything has been woven together with poetry too is beautiful – as is the film-maker’s little show-stealer of a granddaughter, Eva, who plays my Child of Hope just as I imagined her when writing my poem A Wish. That Eva actually looks at her hand when those words of the poem referring to hands are spoken gave me goosebumps. Bravo!"

UK NEWS REPORT, 26 JANUARY 2012:
"On the very day that German chancellor Angela Merkel was seen on worldwide TV laying a wreath at a ceremony in Berlin to commemorate the closing of the Nazi death- camp Auschwitz, Ian Woodward’s film 'Too Many Ghosts' was being screened at the Imperial War Museum in London and at Auschwitz in Poland to commemorate the very same thing."

DAVID ROBERTS, EDITOR, THE WAR POETRY WEBSITE, WRITES:
"Congratulations on 'Too Many Ghosts' receiving its London and UK premiere last Monday, 5 December, at the 11th Annual Imperial War Museum Film Festival. That’s fantastic success. To be shown at the Imperial War Museum is a real honour. It must make producing films even more irresistible."
