Joyeux Noel

English Title: Happy Christmas
Christian Carion, France+others, 2005, imdb
Review: 2.5 Uchuvas

It's just too long! and the last hour difficult to digest peacefully. It's a pity that a nice true event film became a totally "chick flick".


English Title: Zelary
Ondrej Trojan, Czech Republic+others, 2003, imdb
Review: 3.5 Uchuvas

It is a good film with very nice cinematography and good acting in general. A story that turns upside down nicely.

Flickan som Lekte Med Elden

English Title: The Girl who Played with Fire
Daniel Alfredson, Sweden+others, 2009, imdb
Review: 2.5 Uchuvas

As I told you guys not to waste your time watching any film of this trilogy, I also won't waste mine reviewing this film that it is the worst of the three!!
BTW, I just realized that the first film (the less worst of the three) has a different director... maybe that's why it was less worst ;/

Lufslottet som Sprangdes

English Title: The Girl who Kicked the Hornet's Nest
Daniel Alfredson, Sweden+others, 2009, imdb
Review: 3.0 Uchuvas

Ok, the film is not that bad... I just got super tired with the very first film of the trilogy (the girl with the dragon tattoo) and then the worst came out (the girl who played with fire) and then this disaster!! How a boring trilogy!! Im soooo pleased that it's all finished!! Don't waist your time with any of the three, although if you want to have a go, try the number... Oh well... whatever... all are really crappy!!
(I just realized that I didn't review the second film... so here it comes next...)


English Title: Beautiful
Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, Mexico+Spain, 2010, imdb
Review: 4.5 Uchuvas

Im starting this year with the expected Biutiful! (title my sister, I'll guess, is hating for the lack of orthography). Without any doubt Bardem is just made for Inarritu's film! Some how I felt that all the sadness, stress and difficult times that most of Inarritu's films has shown, are all compressed in this film and who better to performance such a sad feelings that Bardem him self (especially after showing what he did in Old Country for Old Men). Im only giving 4.5 Uchuvas as the film didn't reach me as much as expected. It's well worth watching it though... do not miss it!
