I was very distracted during this scene by the way he was holding his spoon. I’m sorry, it made me cringe.

Me too! The whole time I kept thinking his table manners were atrocious! Hopefully he is doing it because he is eating with a child?? But still….it’s quite off putting, it would drive me crazy.

I was hoping that too. I’ve never noticed them as bad before. The only real example that comes to mind is Mulligan. He used a fork tines down, which would be right in Britain. That spoon did drive me crazy. I had to rewind a few times to listen to the conversation. I doubt that those are his manners, but if they were, he would probably be the only man living that I would manage to see past them.

However, why would you hold a spoon that way, especially with a child? You would want to set the proper example. I wouldn’t do it under any circumstances.

Ah, I thought of another example. When Thornton was eating Mary’s stew, I’m pretty sure he held the spoon correctly (will have to check). I would be really surprised if Richard’s mum hadn’t thought him proper table manners.

It’s really interesting why he holds a spoon that way in that scene. They talkes about a family, he thought of his mother, maybe he wanted to be a child again that moment..

That’s a thoughtful insight.

I was thinking if it’s an Eis-café, it’s probably not even a real spoon, it’s one of those little “shovels” that cafes use as spoons for ice cream. Will look again later.

See, what would we do without you for these little tidbits of personal experience? 😃

Ask a German 🙂
This is what they look like. They’re usually made out of very cheap, thin, stamped metal, I assume b/c most ice cream cafés have a low profit margin.

Well, here you might get plastic.

Shades of Francis Dolarhyde eating pie at Reba’s house.

Well we know Francis wasn’t nurtured though.

The way he holds his spoon made me cringe too ! However it seems to me that RA is right-handed, whereas in this scene he eats with his left hand. Maybe that could explain it ? ;)))

I’m always impressed by the ambidextrousness of people from the UK with their utensils, but I’m fairly sure they eat spoon / right. So, no idea.
Those ice cream spoons are also awfully small.

You all must be CRAZY! I think I like him holding a spoon like that! To me, it’s cute and endearing and as we all know by now, Our Richard with any ice cream is like a five-year-old child at times. Don’t care about the table manners too much, since I have worse ones on my best days!
