English Title: Revanche
Gotz Spielmann, Austria, 2008, imdb
Review: 4.0 Uchuvas
Comment: I wish, I really wish I could say something about this film but if I do all the emotion for you will be gone. So just have a look. It's super great! The acting is superb! the photography amazing.


English Title: Tsotsi
Gavin Hood, UK - South Africa, 2005, imdb
Review: 4.5 Uchuvas
Comment: A super touching film! I saw it ages ago and don't remember details. I just remember the super tough story and great acting.

Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels

English Title: Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels
Guy Ritchie, UK, 1998, imdb
Review: 4.5 Uchuvas
Comment: This was my first Ritchie's film and totally loved it! I keep watching it and still enjoy every part of it. Very similar to his master peace Snatch but still good enough to be a great one on it's own.  I love mess films that ends some where! edition was superb!

Abre los ojos

English Title: Open your Eyes
Alejandro Amenabar, Spain, 1997, imdb
Review: 4.0 Uchuvas
Comment: I saw this film long long long ago and I liked it a lot. I recently saw it again and still liked it a lot especially after watching the horrible American version... which made me think, why! why they have to re-made films!! WHY!! especially WHY if the first one was soo good!... W H Y ! ! ? But anyway, this Amenabar film was superb, edition was super good, acting was good and the story kind of too crazy to be understood the first time (well, in my case!... although even the third time I saw it I thought: "what?!")

Why not FF posting

(FF=Festival Fims)
I had an idea of posting FF news and winners in the blog. I started doing it but suddenly I realized that:
1. There are more FF in the word than mosquitos in the air!
2. There are more unknown films than unknown clouds types. 
3. If I wanted to post about the FF I had to dedicated more than:
a. 90% of my posting talking about them.
b. 80% of my time looking for info about them.
4. If I was reading so much about the FF I new which films are around and which ones I would like to see, which is not bad at all BUT:
1. I have to wait for months to see the films which make my expectations go higher and higher with time and:
a. I feel disappointed most of the time after having such a high expectations (case: Gomorra)
b. After reading so much about the film I knew everything (plot), which I don't like at all!
After realizing this, I felt sick and decided:
1. I won't post about FF in the blog.
2. I won't look for information in the web about the FF.  I will only (and this is my advice) create a list of films that has been shown in IMPORTANT FF.  Just keep them in mind to see them without reading too much about them.
I will create a post with my list... if you want to have a look...
In the mid time and because I don't post too many US films, I want to suggest this great film: "Away we go" ...Super nice!
