Nothing mourns and consoles like Latin. Although Donald Trump would probably call it "music for losers,"
Branagh did get Oscar nominations for Best Director and Best Actor, but didn't win either. Yep, he's a loser. Which may have facilitated his ability to appreciate this song.
Note, Oliver Stone beat him out for Best Director with Born on the Fourth of July (my tribute to which is here).
Daniel Day Lewis beat him out for Best Actor in My Left Foot.
MY SHOULDER TRUMP: This guy Branagh? He couldn't beat a guy who was acting with one foot. You call him masterful? Gimme a break. I've seen better acting in foot powder commercials.
