Ana Moura...


With a new record and on the road again. "Desamparo" is a brilliant song....and she can really sing from the heart.

Long before #metoo....

Tippi Hedren and daughter Melanie Griffith in 1966

..the price of refusal was a destroyed career.

The portuguese destructive methodology for classified areas....


The gardens of palacete Mendonça in Lisbon, April 2017


..and today.

The gardens are classified (protected by law), yet the trees were mutilated by the converging incompetence of authorities, owners, builders, etc. Unfortunately, not an isolated example, but more or less the "modus operandi" that slowly (but firmly) is destroying the character and authenticity of the city of Lisbon.

Viskningar och rop....


Nykvist, Bergman, Thulin and Ullmann

Whispers and shouts and not "Cries and Whispers" 
Sussurros e gritos e não "Lágrimas e suspiros"

Another goodbye among Lisbon's historic shops....


The bookshop Aillaud & Lellos at Rua do Carmo, 82, opened the doors in 1931 and closed definitely in december 2017. New attractions for tourists are to be expected.

He sold one (!) painting....

Arles, 1888

..during his lifetime !?

Björn Ehrling....


Frihetens Legender

A Swedish singer hardly remembered in his native country. This pearl was recorded in May 1978 and became a rare blend of Portuguese traditional music, fado, and Swedish "vistradition".

The Square....


With all the respect for Ruben Östlund I wonder were the Palme d'Or came from ? Fingers pointed in different directions but the feeling after the credits is no more then....empty. Not a bad film, but not so much more than that. To the memory files I take that scene with Elisabeth Moss and the "condom". A great actress for many years to come.

Tidningshuset som Gud glömde....


En Göteborgs historia klurigt skriven av Gertrud Larsson om girighet och inkompetens i den övre divisionen. Iscensatt i form av dröm (eller var det mardröm ?), och med en utmärkt ensemble. Mest minnesvärt blev karaktärerna Döden (Fredrik Lundin) och Teodorescu (Victoria Dyrstad). De två unga skådespelare kommer vi att se mycket av i framtiden.
