Das Leben der Anderen (The Lives of Others - German)

Loved it, even though the subs I got were a bit iffy. I liked how the film tackles an oppressive government and how people make use of this adversity they face as "inspiration" to do great things be it in writing or through more violent means. (The theme's reminiscent of V for Vendetta, which is one of my recent favorites. Maybe it's because in my country it is somewhat similar.)

I loved the shot where the Stasi guy went into a bookstore named after Karl Marx (though it can be seen as cheesy as well )

ONDSKAN (EVIL) Sweden - 2003



I give it 4 out of 5 stars. The title is misleading. Excellent drama based on true story.

Synopsis: Adapted from a best-selling novel, this Swedish drama follows rebellious teenager Erik (Andreas Wilson) as he's expelled from high school for fighting and sent to the prestigious Stjärsnberg Academy. Having endured many beatings from his step-father, Erik is dismayed to face a similar threat from the academy's senior students, who bully the younger ones mercilessly. But this time, Erik is determined not to crack and lash out in violence.

DE ZAAK ALZHEIMER (The Memory of a Killer) - Belgium (2003)


3.5 out of 5.

This mmovie started out strong but fell apart for me at the end. It is still worth viewing. I love this actor Jan Decleir. His presence is so powerful.

Synopsis:
Hardened hit man Angelo Ledda (Jan Decleir) finds his career threatened by the onset of Alzheimer's in this Belgian crime thriller. As Ledda struggles to complete his contracts, he must also contend with two detectives (Koen De Bouw and Werner De Smedt) who are hot on his trail for recent murders. Soon, the pressure of it all prompts Ledda to turn on his own employers. Erik Van Looy directs from a script based on Jef Geeraerts's novel.

The Science of Sleep - 7/10

This was my type of movie, artistically done, very abstract...but too abstract even for me. I'm still not quite sure I understood what all happened, but I found myself relating to Stephané's emotions a lot of the time.

Vaya con dios - German movie from 2002 10/10



The obviously very low-budget production describes the adventures of three monks of an imaginary, extremely musical order, who, after having to close down their small monastery in the north of Germany for lack of funds and people, are picking their way south towards the only other branch of the order left. On the way they have to cope with the modern world quite strange to them, as well as with their own back stories and desires (thus the tagline 'and lead us into temptation'). They get mixed up in church politics and make the acquaintance of a charming and crafty young journalist, a romantic yet disturbing meeting both for her an for the youngest monk. Somehow they manage to sing many a beautiful medieval or renaissance hymn on the way, and in the end it is the mysticism of their music that carries them through. The cast does an excellent job in portraying the quaint protagonists, the locations have been chosen lovingly and fit right into the story, and the whole cinematography is very solid work.

The movie really deserves it's six awards: 3 Bavarian Film Awards (Best Direction - Zoltan Spirandelli, Best Young Actor - Daniel Brühl, Best Young Actress - Chiara Schoras)
German Film Award in Gold and German Film Critics association Awards for actor Daniel Brühl

Das muss man einfach gesehen haben!

I really want to see the Iranian movie "Offsides". It opens this weekend, and is getting great reviews. Has anybody around here seen it?

It is, but I'm still convinced that there was a mistake made with the whole first part coming after the other two. There's a scene in which you see the English woman looking at some pictures she took of the boy mourning over the dead girl, but that's impossible, seeing the girl has yet to die when she looks at the pictures.

Am I making any sense? Anyway, besides that, it's a great film.
