Wow, three nights in a row that I just watch movies. Well, at least they were pretty good ones, and I am not complaining I love watching movies. Anyways, wednesday I went out to watch a French film with my parents. The name? Dans la Mansion. The story is about a literature teacher and a particular student in who he takes notice on due to the kids story about a house. Not just any house, a home he´s been observing for over a year and has finally gotten into with the pretenses of helping the child of the family living there with math. The story is set basically inside the house, with him telling the story and the teacher making his remarks about it. Dans la Mansion is pretty remarcable, the dialogues are really good and there is a play between reality and imagination that makes it all deeper.
The other movie, I watched on TV yesterday, I had seen it before, but it is a film you can watch a hundred times (nah, maybe thats just a bit much) and never get tired of it. The Help, with the beautiful Emma Stone playing Skeeter, a writer who wants to portary the side of the black maids that worked for white families in the 60s, when being black was, lets say, a crime. The movie was indicated for Best Picture for the Gloden Globes and won Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture for Octavia Spencer, who won the Oscar for the movie also.
“In the early morning, a yellow taxi pulls up at Tiffany & Co. on Fifth Avenue in New York City, and Holly Golightly emerges”. Yes, that is the start od Breakfast at Tiffany´s. And, yes, it is an old movie. Old, but gold. The romantic comedy won Oscars and its impossible not to fall in love with Audrey Hepburn´s charm and her mischivious smile and with the beatiful George Peppard. And the movie is in NYC. The New York Times called the film a “completely unbelievable but wholly captivating flight into fancy composed of unequal dollops of comedy, romance, poignancy, funny colloquialisms and Manhattan’s swankiest East Side areas captured in the loveliest of colors”, cant disagree with them 🙂
