Today is the 10th anniversary of the passing of an exceptional personality, someone who could have changed it all. There are no words that could describe her or that could ease the pain, not even now.
Princess Diana, rest in peace.


Cinemafest 2007, Hungary

In Hungary we have a 4 day event called Cinemafest. During this festival, you can watch a movie (a kinda new one, there even pre-premiere flicks being screened) for about 1,5. That means you can watch 3 movies for the price of one...
So I chose to live with the chance and went to the movies today.
I watched Fracture, Ocean's Thirteen and Evan Almighty (usually, movies come to Hungary a bit later than they are premiered in the UK or the States).
So, Ocean's Thirteen was no surprise, with the wonderful cast (along with Clooney, Pitt, Damon, Garcia and so on, Al Pacino and Ellen Barkin), the story was great and the tricks were no exception. I like it about these Ocean's films that they are a bit extraordinary and quirky.

Evan Almighty... I was told it was worse than Bruce Almighty but seriously, it was not since the two can not be compared. They have different stories, since Bruce has the opportunity to BE almighty, to change things and all, but Evan is the tiny little mortal who has a divine mission. Both movies are funny, of course, they are comedies, but Bruce Almighty was about understanding something (actually, he had to understand and accept that being God is not easy and being selfish isn't either), Evan Almighty was a bit lighter. Of course it had the 'deeper layer' (his relationship with his family and the world itself), but still, it was lighter.

And last but not least, Fracture. It was the best of the day, Anthony Hopkins is brilliant as always, Ryan Gosling was a pleasant disappointment and story, oh, the story. It cannot be described, it's too complicated but believe me, it's one of the best movies of the year so far. Excellent and perfect. AQnd the humour of Sir Hopkins (okay, of his character) and his facial acting is absolutely a must-see. Sorry, must-experience.


64th Venice International Film Festival

I always look forward fall and winter. Not only because in my opinion fashion is the most exciting in this period (layering, after all, is extremely sophisticated and I adore matching clothes) but because of awards season.
64th Venice International Film Festival starts today (and it lasts until September 8) and at first glimpse, it will be overwhelming. The list of films includes many that are created by my idols and/or have my favourites on the cast list.
First, there is Woody Allen's out of competition Cassandra's Dream. His latest creations like Scoop or Hollywood Ending are amongst my fave movies of all time (just like his older ones. His only film I can say I do not like is Celebrity...) so I hope and guess this one will be a wonderful one as well.
And then, the in competition movies...
The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford starring Brad Pitt, Michael Clayton with George Clooney, Brian De Palma's Redacted, Kenneth Branagh's Sleuth, Il dolce e l'amaro by Andrea Porporati, Ang Lee's Se, jie (Lust, Caution) and Todd Haynes's I'm not there, starring different actors (amongst them Cate Blanchett) as Bob Dylan... And I haven't even mentioned all.
But the one I'm looking forward the most is Wes Anderson's The Darjeeling Limited starring Adrien Brody, Jason Schwartzman and Adrien Brody, but Bill Murray, Anjelica Huston and Natalie Portman also show up... I love the movie's mood, the picturesque scenes, the lines, everything. Can't wait 'til it hits cinemas in November...
