Bad weddings 2

Bad weddings 2 - read reviews before you watch it

An elderly couple living in a French province (beautiful landscapes) has four daughters and four sons in law. Every young man has different roots, culture, faith, skin colour etc. Even they are so different, one day they make the same decision - to quite France and start a new, better life elsewhere. Madame and Monsieur Verneuil do their best to keep the big family close. Do their best? Well, that is the question. 

We decided quite spontaneously to watch this film which is a sequel of a movie released 2014 (Bad wedding). We were in a mood for a comedy. But if we had read some reviews before, we would have decided otherwise. “Slapstick combined with uninspired flat jokes” and similar commentaries would have changed our mind or at least decrease our hope. And so we decided to watch this movie with some expectations. And we came out disappointed. C’est la vie.

Ghost Mountaineer (Must Alpinist)

Must Alpininst - Ghost Mountaineer   How to get surprised by good films from distant places? The easiest way is asking locals for tips when you are there. This wasn’t possible this time, but a friend of us happened to be in Tallinn for few days. “There is a good DVD department, go there - Paul told   him after having written down his want-list. - And then ask the shop assistant what he/she would suggest in addition to that list”. “And you really will pay for that all, not knowing what he'll suggest?" - our friend asked puzzled. “Yes, don’t worry! - Paul said. This is how we got Ghost Mountaineer (Must Alpinist - in Estonian).  That film was an excellent choice. Thanks to that unknown shop assistant!  And to our friend! Film from Estonia about Siberia in the 80. The film starts with some brownish amateur pictures and a women voice from the off. First we were not sure whether it's a documentary or a feature film. It turned out to be a mix, with the most pa

DAU. Natasha - the most controversial film project at Berlinale 2020

DAU. Natasha - film works in Kharkiv, Ukraine - fot. Wikipedia.org   I have to confess I wasn’t aware of all the controversy the film DAU. Natasha had provoked when I decided to go for a screening of this film. The controversy had circled around the production of the DAU project - shot as 700 hours raw material from 2008 to 2011 on set in Kharkiv/Ukraine - as well as in particular the torture scene of the DAU.Natasha installment depicting a women forced to insert a bottle into her vagina. I’d dare to guess that Russian main regisseur  Ilya Khrzhanovsky deliberately choose to scandalize his DAU-films and its production on set as a kind of shock advertisement. Khrzhanovsky might have followed a trick often used by Vladimir Sorokin , the Russian playwright initially involved into his DAU project but parting soon over differences. However it was, let me write down, why I (dis)liked that film. DAU. Natasha - grandest cinematic experiment in Russia The film deals wit

Wolkenbruch – a successful Swiss comedy among the Jewish minority

Wolkenbruch - a successful Swiss  comedy When Paul was a boy his parents often drove via Zurich to Bern. The quickest way coming from the South passed through the so called Kreis 3. Especially on Saturdays this calm and seemingly boring part of Zurich turned into a different place. Bearded men with long black coats and big hats were walking around. – Who are they? – Paul asked his parents. – They are going to their church service – explained his mother. – Church, on Saturday? – Paul wondered.  Wolkenbruch - best Swiss film 2018 Almost forty years later, during our visit to Switzerland, the biggest cinema hit is called “Wolkenbruch”. The film staged exactly in this part of the city is a love story. A young orthodox Jew, Motti (Mordechai), feels attracted by his fellow student Laura, while his energetic and dominant mother tries her matchmaking skills within the Jewish community. After many fruitless attempts, upon a Rabbi suggestion, Motti’s parents send him to Isra
