The broken circle breakdown....


Johan Heldenbergh and Veerle Baetens

Enjoy while it lasts. Life can change direction without a choice, and one day we have to face the rear of the train while it disappears in the horizon....to never come back. Great performances from the two above, and that last scene is heartbreaking....but unforgettable.

A film by Felix van Groeningen, IMDB

Clouds of Sils Maria....



Madame Binoche acts like a cameleont and gets the right color everywhere - anytime. Her performance overshadows the story....but that is a price worth to pay. Kristen Stewart does a great supporting role, and it was ages ago I saw Angela Winkler on the screen. Aging is a tough task, the sense of loss is a constant companion....but what are the alternatives ?

A film by Olivier Assayas, IMDB

Roma, Roma....

The National - Trouble will find me....


This album is a pearl from the beginning to the end. There is an aura of sadness, a dark cloud suspended in the sound - mixed with a clear string of hope in Matt Berninger's voice. Sometimes I can hear the influences of Joy Division, and that is another exquisite attribute of this CD.

A very good film by Solveig Nordlund, about a devastating reality that harvested so many young lives in four decades, here



After a book by António Lobo Antunes, which i presume once lived in this house in Benfica where a few scenes were recorded.
