seen... Big Night (Stanley Tucci/Campbell Scott, 1995, US). A rare opportunity to see this beautifully acted and moving film about two gorgeous Italian brothers who come to 50s America and set up a restaurant.

At 2.30pm, National Film Theatre, South Bank, pounds 5.75 (pounds 4.35 concs). Box office: 0171 928 3232

been... to the Bristol Old Vic to see Pete Postlethwaite (The Lost World, In the Name of the Father) in Macbeth.

King Street, Bristol, BS1 4ED. 7.30pm. Box Office: 0117 949 4901

heard... about the new Muji; the extra-large London store which opened last Friday to accommodate an increasing number of fans devoted to its simply-chic Japanese style. 187 Oxford Street, W1 (0171 437 7503)

tried... honey and garlic ice-cream (better than you might think) at unique Swedish restaurant, Garlic and Shots. There's no getting away from the potent aroma of garlic in this place where everything goes with it, including the cocktails. Surprisingly good. Just make sure everyone you know eats there too! 14 Frith Street, London W1 (0171 734 9505)
