"Jamacian lesbians wrestling in raspberry jam vol. 4". Great plot and plenty of twists and turns to keep you involved right through to the last frame.

What about the Vol. 3? wasn't that creative, was it?

Concern Toni Takitani's film:

Тони Такитани художник и страшно одинок, а его единственная любовь маниакально одержима одеждой. Однажды ее настигнет нелепая смерть от консюмеризма, и Тони попробует нанять девушку, похожую на жену, чтобы она носила вещи покойной, а та вдруг сядь на пол и расплачься.

Фильм Итикавы — первая и на редкость адекватная экранизация Харуки Мураками; по таким простым историям только и снимать, что диафильмы: папа саксофонист, мама умерла. Медленно и медитативно: несколько застывших огоньков в окне и один, двигающийся горизонтально, — машина поехала; закадровый голос замирает — и герой договаривает за него фразу; еще долго после титров звучит одинокая фортепианная мелодия, будто кто-то случайно касается клавиш.

Архитектурно прекрасное и абсолютно нежилое кино, где главная роль, по сути, досталась комнате, а эпизодические — туфлям, небу и кактусу; комната, надо сказать, виртуозно перевоплощается из маленького рая, изгнавшего хозяйку, в заброшенный чердак или тюремную камеру памяти — в зависимости от того, плачет ли в ней хрупкая девушка, потрясенная количеством дорогой одежды, свалены ли в ней старые отцовские пластинки или Тони Такитани лежит в ней на полу, отдав решительно все воспоминания секонд-хендам.

Итикава по ниточке выплетает кино из графичности раннего Одзу, из молчания Фейерверка Китано, из щемящей наивности Чункинского экспресса Кар Вая и шьет прохладного, шелкового Мураками. Чувствуешь себя той девушкой, которой дали примерить дизайнерские вещи погибшей красавицы: и неловкость, и печаль, и тихое детское ликование.

damn The Birds was scary!

two constant favourites: Point Break (Keanu Reeves playing someone completely dumb, oh how fitting, and flaunting his nipples) and A Few Good Men (for the script, and the fact that Tom Cruise and Demi Moore hate each other for a good half of the film)

This is another movie with Jean Paul Belmondo I suppose... but still very good :)

Oceans 12, the terminal, Finding Neverland were all very entertaining.

As for comedy, Meet the Fockers and Team America: World Police

Hi All!

Please share here what the best last film you have seen:)

Tonka

The last movie I have seen was "Life as a house" with Kevin Kline, Kristin Scott Thomas, Hayden Christiansen and Jena Malone.
It usally takes much before a movie is touching me but this one really startled me, because it remembered me of my own dreams of a house by the sea - in fact, I lived not far away from the area, where the movie was shot.
(LA).
The story:
George Monroe is facing the sadness of his lonely life: his wife has long left him, his son has turned into a complete stranger. As he finds out that he has not many months still to life, he decide to build his dreamhouse. Will he make it before he dies?

:stop: Big confusion! :eek:

The Professional in the US is known as Leon in Russian and in the UK (originally called Leon in French too). Jean reno

Le Professionnel with Belmondo was never released in the US. Don't know about the UK.

You would really not regret. Most of the time people go to movies to escape the reality of life. If it's a real needs the movie? In this case it is that reality that is used as a diversion. You find yourself routing and cringing from it all the characters. If you've been around anybody who's dying or the people they've been around that person than you could really recognize them in this movie. This is the story of an old curmudgeon who you'd like to like but he just won't let you. Realizing his own mortality he attempts to make amends. This takes the form of building a house and rebuilding relationships that parallel. I don't mean for this movie to sound like some philosophical artsy type film. It is just people being people.

Thanks a lot for your description. I like when the film could see not only "for fun" but also to find out something new, interesting for you.
As I mentioned before I was really impressed by "American Beauty".

Now I'm reading Roal Dal, the American author of short stories.
It's very exciting because many of producers use his short stories as their scenario later as Tarantino or Walt Disney studio.

Yesterday I talked with my friend and we discussed that sometimes the movie could be very good, then the book on it apprared but really not good and vice versa.

It's close to me because I'm Korean but never been there. And my impressions are just double.

It's Roald Dahl and he wasn't American - he was British - Come on Olga, get with the programme!

I can't remember what she did - Can't even remember what the English Title is, but i know in Russian it is Perevodchitsa!

I have seen yesterday the film "Toni Takitani" under Murakami's story.
I dodn't read the story but I decided to go to see the movie.
It's very short, 1 hour + several minutes as I see. My mind has used to see the other films that continue more than 1.30 hour.

I won't describe the whole subject but as I understand the main idea is people have things (people, events etc) that could drive them mad.
When they lost things, people, events what they got used to, they become empty inside.
