Movie recommendation

Watched this one a few days ago. I came across it because it won the 'Palme d'Or' and several European film awards. The trailer really hooked me and I was very happy when I found out that it's currently on Netflix.

Man on wire

I just saw the great documentary man on wire about the fascinating Philippe Petit who walked on a tightrope between the former towers of the World Trade Center in 400 meter altitude!

Mio fratello è un figlio unico

Tonight I went to the cinema. I watched "Mein Bruder ist ein Einzelkind" (Mio fratello è un figlio unico) - a really good movie about the political situation and especially the relationship of two brothers in Southern Italy around the sixties. Because everyone else watched the football game between Germany and Austria I was the only one in the whole auditorium!

new year, new blog

My provider had some server problems some weeks ago. There were also problems with the backup (of the database), so I have lost my blog entries. That means I will start from scratch. Tomorrow a new year begins and before I start my first entry I wish everyone a happy and peaceful new year. Because the year is almost over I will give my personal "playlist" of 2007. I have attended only three concerts in 2007, but all three were really good:

  1. Wooven Hand (06/07 in Budapest)
  2. Bohren und der Club of Gore (01/07 in Budapest)
  3. Ortega (11/07 in Berlin)

I have been in cinemas in Budapest regularly and saw some good movies. To be honest I do not remember all the names because they generally were in Hungarian. Here are three movies I liked:

  1. Az álom tudománya (The science of sleep)
  2. The fountain
  3. 4 Monate, 3 Wochen, 2 Tage This is only an extract. There were other good ones like Zodiac, The wind that shakes the barley, Babel,...

And here are my three discoveries concerning music! I won't state records only the composer/bands: My greatest discovery this year were the records of Nicholas Lens. My second discovery this year was Wooven Hand. I knew 16 Horsepower for years, but somehow I didn't check out Woven Hand until this year. And during the last weeks I got to know and listened often to Choir Of Young Believers.
