Some films are hard for me to talk about. Not because they’re bad, but because they touch my heart in such a way that it’s simply hard to put it into words. It took me 2 weeks to be able to start writing this blog. But I’m so happy I’m finally here, because you do need to hear this story and you do need to see this film – a film, which might just be one of the most beautiful films I’ve ever seen. And the fact that it’s actually a true story makes it all the more powerful.

My latest picks for the ‘1001 Movies Challenge’ sparked a completely new interest in these films for me. A spark, that was in a great need of being ignited again, as some of the previously chosen films has failed to deliver for me. But that’s not the case of these 3 films.
This year marks the 50th anniversary of In the Heat of the Night’s release and I couldn’t help but think how relevant the film still is today, which is kinda sad. 50 years later and we are still discussing equality.
La Mallorquina, Madrid’s most famous bakery gets incredibly busy! Remember that scene from Eat Pray Love where Julia Roberts tries to order some coffee in the busy café in Rome? Yep. That sort of busy. You have been warned.
Spain has been one of my oldest dreams, and inspired by watching The Limits of Control where the Lone Man wanders through Madrid and later on through Seville, I thought ‘hey! I want to do that, too!’ Sadly, Seville didn’t fit into the plans this time, but there’s always the next time, right?
…or maybe you were not, but just prefered not to know.. Whatever the case, I just thought I’ll give you a few fun facts about the person behind all this, should you be interested (or maybe more than a few…) So, if you’re brave enough and decide to carry on reading – nice to meet you!!! And welcome to my crazy mind.
I Am Not Your Negro excels at storytelling. Plus it paints a picture of America you were probably never supposed to see and which you’re most likely not gonna like.. Nevertheless a picture you absolutely need to see.
I was absolutely sure that the new version of Beauty and the Beast will not just turn out to be bad (real bad, actually) but that it will also prove itself as a completely unnecessary film. Could it possibly be any good? Well, now that I have finally seen it, I am happy to report that yes, it could! In fact, I was totally enchanted.
I know what you’re thinking. That I’m being careful not to challenge myself too much. The fact is none of the ‘challenge’ movies I watched in the past 30 days has inspired me very much. So, I thought, I’ll just give you a quick sum-up of what I have seen, so you know I’m not a total loser. And also so you know what films you don’t have to stress about if you feel like your final day is coming 😉
I looked at him and was overcome by affection. His big green eyes fixed on me. His pleading look making me feel like I was the only one that could save him. Like I was the only one in his world. Like I was his only chance to be happy. His look almost reliant. I realized there’s nothing I wouldn’t do for him. I was too much in love to deny him anything.
Naomi Kawase has created a truly inspiring movie which will leave you stunned and feeling empowered. Empowered to make changes in your life right that minute. That is – if you make it till the end of the film as An really is a very slow-paced movie.
Never give up on your dreams. Don’t we all need to be reminded that from time to time? And that’s why a movie with a message like that can never hurt, right? Nor there will ever be enough of them, cause hell, we need to be reminded constantly! Cause chances are, Kevin Costner might not be coming to save you.
Paterson is one of the most beautiful movies I have ever seen. A movie, that truly is one of a kind and which you should definitely put on your list and watch it as soon as you can if you haven’t yet. Because it’s not only beautiful, it’s good for your soul, too.
A lot has been written and said about Olivier Assayas’ latest movie Personal Shopper. I’ve read it all. And since it had Kristen Stewart in the lead, whom I hated since the Twilight days, I was hoping it was the people at Cannes that booed the film, that were actually right. But man, was I wrong. I absolutely loved this film and I owe a huge apology to Ms. Stewart.
Oh, sweet Vienna. You truly are sweet. If you’re anything like me, and you enjoy getting to know the culture throughout its food, here are my 5 favorite things you should not miss while in Vienna. But be warned and get your taste buds ready for a lot of cakes and sweets.
