what movie move you? - Page 2

post #31 of 58
xiu xiu crushing....well done, very emotionally draining for me. the actress was amazing, what dramatic changes she made from virgin to slut. I'm amazed also that China even let this movie be made.

Eight Days was another difficult one for me because I have a child with autism. Well done but hit too close to home.

There was an Indian movie about a a bride and her mother in law falling in love....Fire
(hmmmmm can't remember the name) is very realistic in the way I've seen Indian women treated.

I just finished watching A Chef In Love and I was really moved by this film. What a passion for food, such a dedication to his restaurant Pascal had. I also loved how the kitchen was laid out with the different work stations sectioned off, and the bed against the wall. Imagine a bed to rest on in your kitchen! The health inspector would never go for that.

Thanks for all the great suggestions! Here is one for you, Island on Bird Street. Another holocaust film, but with a really great Robinson Curosoe twist.
Thanks,

SISI xiu xiu ....during Mao teenagers were sent into the remote areas to work. This child (13-14) was sent to live with a horse herder and it detailed her demise in trying to get home.
Nicko...Chef in Love is absolutely one of my favorites, it is one of the few I've watched more than once. It's true, great chefs make great lovers....passion and attention to detail.

I would have to say Shindlers List, I was scared to see it in the movies because of how I would react, I rented it and watched it with my wife, I am Jewish,And lost many Members of my family in auszwvitz and sobebor.I was filled with so much emoution during that film. I will never forget the little girl In the red dress

I saw Billy Elliott yesterday. Wonderful British film about a young boy discovering ballet. The editing is particularly brilliant.


I saw Dr T and the women too. By the end of it I couldn't stand all those bickering women. If that was the goal of the movie Altman succeed…


One film I can't wait to see is Vatel with Gérard Depardieu. I know the film was presented at Cannes but hasn't come out here yet.

Vatel was made by Roland Joffé, best known for The Mission. It stars Gérard Depardieu, Uma Thurman and Tim Roth. The film was presented at the last Festival de Cannes.


Loosely based on a true story set in April of 1671, the film focus on the preparation of a three days banquet that was being prepared by Vatel for his master the Prince de Condé who wanted to get back in the good grace of King Louis XIV and his Court.

Sounds like a great movie!

On the lighter side, we saw Best of Show last night. Full of zingy one liners and quirky characters. It was fun but not at all what I expected. We laughed heartily and enjoyed a wonderful Thai meal. A wonderful evening.
Sweet Dreams!!

Good news, I've just learned Vatel is scheduled to open on Christmas day. Bad news, it opens only in New York and Los Angeles. Everybody else will have to wait a few more weeks to see it.

They use boom cranes to prepel through the air very steadily, on a separate screen and then add to an additional type screen. (computer graphted) It was a very cool movie!

2 of my favorite movies (completely different from one another) are "This is Spinal Tap" and "Shine". They're both about music, but that is the only similarity. Spinal Tap is one of the funniest movies on the planet.

I just saw "Oh Brother, Where Are Thou?" yesterday. It was funny and pretty good- George Cloony was very good, I have to say. Given the gritty tough guy parts he's been playing for years, this was a pleasant surprise. I'd give it 2.75 out of 4 stars. The music isn't my favorite, but I did like "Man of Constant Sorrow".

Somebody I know just saw that and recommended it too. I guess I'll have to see it. Last night, we saw the movie "Snatch" (you have to say the words 'the movie' before you say the title). If you liked Pulp Fiction, you will probably like this one. But it's pretty bloody. Brad Pitt pulls off his accent pretty well.

What about "Cold dog soup"?, I am a huge fan of dark comedies. Clerks and Mallrats, whew, I might be stretching it a little but I really liked those two. Swimming with Sharks is good too. Has anyone ever seen "fishing with John" on IFC? And if anyone happens to have recorded the fishing with John marathon.... sure would like to get a copy, they never show it anynmore. Thanks.
