'Rise of the Planet of the Apes'

I'm really looking forward to watching the new film 'Rise of the Planet of the Apes'.  I remember watching the original series which starred Roddy McDowell. I loved the programme.

The new film stars James Franco, Andy Serkis and Freida Pinto.  It's definitely going to be one I'll be watching out for. :)

Where does Freido Pinto come from. I liked her in Slumdog Millionaire.

I think Pinto is a Portuguese name, however Freida Pinto comes from India. She was great in Slumdog Millionaire. :)

Debs said...

yes you get quite a few Portuguese folk in India.

Frances R A Napper (SmileyRose) said...

Most of the Portuguese folk settled in Goa. It is supposed to be an absolutely beautiful place to visit. :)

There were a lot of English folk who settled in India also.

Frances R A Napper (SmileyRose) said...

Yes there are. There are many Anglo Indian folk who either came to live in England or they all settled in India. Cliff Richard is Anglo Indian. :)

I guess everywhere you go these days there's a Briish connection. There are lots of Anglo's living here in the UK.

Frances R A Napper (SmileyRose) said...

Yes indeed there are. :)

They're my favourite kinds of folk because they have a good understanding of the British culture as many have been brought up as English but who have parents who come from somewhere else.

Frances R A Napper (SmileyRose) said...

The one's who have been brought up in England have a very good understanding of the English culture because that is the way in which they have been brought up. They're really no different to anyone else born in England because one of their parents/grandparents was from the United Kingdom to begin with. :)

Yeah i guess it's because one of their parents/grandparents were from either England, Scotland, Wales or Ireland to begin with.

Frances R A Napper (SmileyRose) said...

That is very true, but only if they have been brought up and schooled here in the United Kingdom would they have a true understanding of the language and they'd perhaps be more appreciative of everything we love about being British. :)

Most Anglo's who are brought up here in England treat England as their only home because it has been the only home they know. ;)

Frances R A Napper (SmileyRose) said...

Although most Anglo's can appreciate their English upbringing, they can also have some appreciation for the other country which their parent/s or grandparents originate from too. Some may not have visited the country of their ancestors/forefathers however they can still have a strong emotional tie to it purely because it's in their blood somewhere down their family line. ;)

True. :)

Some folk would have us believe that we all evolve from the apes anyway. ;)

Carr said...

Yeah the anglo's brought up in Enland are just just like any other person brought up in England. They have a proper English/United Kingdom accent and don't sound foreign. The only difference is their skin colour may look a little different to being white sometimes but they are just as English as anyone else brought up in England.

Frances R A Napper (SmileyRose) said...

Yes that is correct Carr and it is mainly because one or both parents were brought up speaking English only because their roots originate from England irrespective of their colour.

They would usually 'only' speak English in the home as well as in public and they tend not to speak any other language unless they were taught a little school girl French as I was taught but that does not count as it's not their mother tongue. ;)

Anglo's brought up in England tend to speak English as their mother tongue. :)
