Cedric Klapisch, France, 2008, imdb
Review: 2.0 Uchuvas
Comment: What a super boring film!  (Can I leave this comment up to here? ok, thanks)

In the Loop

English Title: In the Loop
Armando Lannucci, UK, 2009, imdb
Review: 3.0 Uchuvas
Comment: I just have to say that whoever likes politics and/or it's familiar with British politicians, must see this film.  I didn't like it as I didn't get most of the jokes BUT there were a lot of good laughs around, so, have a go!


English Title: Lion's Den
Pablo Trapero, Argentina, 2008, imdb
Review: 4.0 Uchuvas
Comment: I don't know what is better in this film: the super sad story, the great actress or the effects! One of the saddest films I've seen and also one of the toughest! After you've seen it you will need a couple of hours to recover.

Anonyma-Eine Frau in Berlin

English Title: A Woman in Berlin
Max Farberbock, Germany, 2009, imdb
Review: 3.5 Uchuvas
Comment: I think is a bit low the number of Uchuvas but I really can't give more to a film that made me feel bored in the middle of it. I just kept thinking: "ok, move on.... what else are you going to show".  The film become very repetitive at some point. The story is really good but a bit too long.


English Title: Malena
Giuseppe Tornatore, Italy, 2000, imdb
Review: 4.0 Uchuvas
Comment: Another great Tornatore's film. I loved they way he pictures Italy's towns and specially the way kids are educated (or were... not sure). The story is sad but also full of funny moments that make a good balance. The cinematography is really good. I need to keep an eye on his new film La porta del vento that hasn't been realized yet; I'm starting to become his fan.
