My March Film List – Before and After Kosmorama

One of the reasons I joined the film festival in town last March was that I could get the chance to see many films with film festival quality. For free, oh yeah! ๐Ÿ™‚

Whenever I start making the report of films I have watched the previous month, I always remember my Bits and Pieces of New Year Resolutions. If you happen to read that post (again), haven’t I told you that I finally decided to buy sleeping bag from the giftcard I got? Oh well, I just did (tell you, I bought it a while ago)! ๐Ÿ™‚

And I haven’t succeeded with the literature books yet, I have to say. Well, in February I read Kardemome By (Norwegian children book) and Ulovlig Norsk (a story of a Caucasian girl who moved to Norway and was illegal for many years).

Back to films. I will divide this into two parts, Before and After Kosmorama and During The Festival. It will take a while, just hang on to this!

1. Beauty and The Briefcase (US, 2010) – Oh yes, I started the month with this easy romantic comedy, which I liked, surprisingly. Yeah, why not? ๐Ÿ™‚

2. New York Stories (US, 1989) – Three short films in one DVD with 3 greatest American directors, Scorsese, Allen and Coppola. Not the sort of my favourite unfortunately, well the one from Allen was probably I liked the most.

3. The Grocer’s son/Le fils de l’รฉpicier (France, 2007) – Easy film to understand with good country view of France.

4. Grbvica (Bosnia/Croatia, 2006) – I liked this film, which shows how a woman has to deal with life after the war in the region. I read in one review that tells : “It’s moving and touching, but also very truthful to the post-war events”. I heard the Serbs claimed that this film was an Anti-Serb propaganda, which I think not true at all.

5. Miss Congeniality (US, 2000) – No need to comment, eh?

6. Meet Bill (US, 2007) – The film might not be my most favourite one, but this is when I spotted Logan Lerman the first time, see how correct I was, he was good, eh? (I wouldn’t say he’s so cute here, although I know he is, well, I just did, is it possible to avoid any distracting comments now?ahahaha… oh well ๐Ÿ™‚ I started googling him and sure, youtubeing as well, and here is one of the funniest video I could find. When he was at Busan International Film festival in South Korea. I hope you have a good laugh! ๐Ÿ™‚

7. Linas Kveldsbok (Sweden, 2007) – It’s a teenager film, that is why I was intrigued to borrow it ๐Ÿ™‚

8. Die Blechtrommel/The Tin Drum (German, 1979) – I had watched this when I was student (yeah, remember I was studying German literature, eh? Well, yeah ages ago… ). I tried once to read the book, written by Guenter Grass, I think he got the Nobel Prize for Literature for this book, but as you can guess, I wasn’t finished reading it (it was in German! :P). And the film itself, directed by Volker Schloendorff – got Oscar for best foreign film. I always remembered this film, because I like the idea of this little Oskar, who decides not to grow up as he sees how complicated adult life is (agree and bless you!). I used to like films with World War 2 (Nazi stuff), hmm not too sure about it now, well, sometimes. It depends, as long as it is not too violent.

I will continue with the films during Kosmorama. Wait for it! ๐Ÿ™‚

Snowyย  greeting! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚
