Have suddenly realised that this is based on the book A 'Long Way Down' by Nick Hornby - it was waiting for me to read in our PP apt for a while. Then one of my son's friends 'borrowed it' & it finally came home to me in the UK. I keep meaning to read it but am addicted to my Kindle now... Anyway, it's meant to be a very good book but I think about suicide ... available from Amazon of course

"Can I explain why I wanted to jump off the top of a tower block?'

For disgraced TV presenter Martin Sharp the answer's pretty simple: he has, in his own words, 'pissed his life away'. And on New Year's Eve, he's going to end it all ... But not, as it happens, alone. Because first single-mum Maureen, then eighteen-year-old Jess and lastly American rock-god JJ turn up and crash Martin's private party. They've stolen his idea - but brought their own reasons.

Yet it's hard to jump when you've got an audience queuing impatiently behind you. A few heated words and some slices of cold pizza later and these four strangers are suddenly allies. But is their unlikely friendship a good enough reason to carry on living?"

So presumably this wasnt the filming that was going on outside Lidl opposite Eroskis last week - we had just been in Eroskis and were driving away when we saw the cameras etc and it seemed like a bridal scene as if the bride was dashing into Lidl????

Yes this is in the UH today :-

Camp de Mar is prepared to receive, as of today, the team of A Long Way Down , a film starring British actor Pierce Brosnan. Directed by Frenchman Pascal Chaumeill has among other scenarios that beach in the municipality of Andratx and Ciutat airport, which begins filming today between large "security measures", according German said Traver, local production of Palm Pictures. It seems that working hours will be marathon.
The surroundings of Camp de Mar boiled activity yesterday. On one hand, the local police came to traffic court in the pedestrian area, the closure of the public car parks, and also to the transfer of the taxi. Some posters announced restricted access to these places until February 27, when it is scheduled to finish shooting scenes that happen in Mallorca. Following the Son Sant Joan, the team will move to Camp de Mar on Monday and Tuesday, where scenarios have been chosen as the snack Illeta and Hotel La Playa.

An article and some pics courtesy of the UH here ¡Bienvenido, míster Brosnan! » Cultura » Noticias » Ultima Hora Mallorca.


Welcome Mr. Brosnan, Pierce Brosnan. The presence of the former agent 007 in the Island for the filming of A Long Way Down guessed fifty curious and would approach tourists wait outside a hotel in Camp de Mar, where the producer of the film has installed one of its bases on the fourth floor. First thing in the morning, the actor went to the set mounted in the area to which maquillaran and then came out with a black eye. Given the number of onlookers hoping to see the Hollywood star, the former agent 007 was evacuated by the rear of the hotel disillusioned the public who had waited at least for a couple of hours camera in hand.
But even there had offseason faithful tourists waiting to immortalize a stellar memory Majorcan holiday. Finally, before leaving the parking lot, the actor down the window of the black BMW in which he was traveling to Palma and greeted fans. Even got a lady fondling one of his glamorous hands.

Around 12.00 arrived at the airport with one of those smiles that captivated seductive Halle Berry in Die Another Day. In the coach park, another base of operations of the shooting, he waited a few followers who shouted "Mr. Brosnan! ", To which he replied happily raising thumb. In another fourth floor, in this case in the parking lot of Son Sant Joan, in addition to the boarding area, recorded some of the scenes from the film directed by Pascal Chaumeil. The tape costars Toni Collette (Little Miss Sunshine) and Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad), who also sported a black eye, appeared in the wake of the Irish interpreter. It appears that both gentlemen measured their fists in the set, but not with much violence.

More from the UH today.

The good weather and clear waters of Camp de Mar, Andratx, yesterday were not favorite attraction of tourists and onlookers. Throughout the day, the focus fell on the filming of the British film A Long Way Down , starring Pierce Brosnan, Aaron Paul, Toni Collette and Imogen Potts, and that started yesterday to settle in the area in the coming days. An intense day of work for the team of this film directed by Pascal Chamueil, although the cast seemed you having fun with laughter and bathrooms on the beach included.
The shooting day started early in the interiors of the Hotel Playa, in the dining room or in rooms where, as has been told this newspaper, was shot a torrid sex scene. Out on the beach of Camp de Mar, were filmed some sequences in which the characters who embody Brosnan, Paul and water Poots launched a surprised Toni Collette. Everything happened under the gaze of tourists, some taking pictures with underwater cameras. A revolution.

Default Pierce Brosnan Shiner

There is a photograph of Pierce Brosnan in Mallorca in the Daily Telegraph to day. He is displaying a lovely black eye.

I was going to post this in the recent 'Safety' thread, then spotted this one about the filming.
