"The imitation game"....


Keira Knightley, Matthew Beard, Benedict Cumberbatch, Matthew Goode and Allen Leech

British acting at its best and a story with a sad end....and one should wonder who is crucified right now in the name of whatever. The official public apology that arrived more than fifty years after his suicide, was indeed a great demonstration of state hypocrisy.

A film by Morten Tyldum, IMDB

Henry Moore....


Göteborg, Slottsskogen, "Vilande figur", 1963 - 2012. Interesting but I never got the impression of a "reclining figure", during its time in the park.



..with a small adjustment in position suddenly the "reclining figure" is crystal clear !!

Removed from Slottsskogen on permanent basis to prevent future thefts and awaiting for conservation works. Its future placement is not decided.

"Os Maias - Cenas da Vida Romântica"....








Uma tragédia burguesa empacotada em belas imagens e uma delicia de diálogos a atarem o presente. Sinceramente....gostei daquela cenografia que mostra pouco, mas liberta ainda mais. Quanto ao papel de Pedro Inês (joão da Ega)....soberbo. Duas horas e meia muito bem passadas no escuro do Fonte Nova.  

Um filme de João Botelho
