Metropolis and Göteborgs Symfoniker at Scandinavium....

Scandinavium, January, 29

Fritz Lang's restored and extended film with the missing scenes that were found 2008 in Buenos Aires. Gustav Frölihch and Brigitte Helm are immortal in their roles. The original music played by Sweden's national orchestra (Maestro Frank Strobel) was the cherry to this absolute masterpiece....

Walking home....


..Rooney Mara and Cate Blanchett

In  "Far from heaven" Todd Haynes got to the core of "morality" and prejudices. Haynes approach to homosexuality is made with the most sensitive "hands", and he is a master in doing so. Once again, he shows that many choices in life....are made (or avoided) according to the consequences. Blanchett and Mara are superb in their acting. When eyes say so much more than words....the evening has come to perfection.

David Bowie, 1947 - 2016

"The Outside Tour" at Scandinavium, January 20, 1996

In a few words....Bowie was a genius and his legacy is gigantic. Like the best, he invented and reinvented his music and career throughout six decades. I'll keep in memory the last time I saw Bowie live in January 1996 at the Scandinavium arena. Pity life does not have rewind buttons. We will miss you, David....
