February 25 marks the start of a year in the words and feelings of the silver screen: a year in movies.
12. The Curious Case of Benjamin Button - The fantastic mr Fincher has succeeded in turning the horrid Forrest Gump script into something actually watchable, while Brad Pitt has enough charisma to keep us interested until the end. You might occasionally get involved with the characters, but after nearly three hours, this no-substance film will leave you with a curious case of hollowness.
6. The French Lieutenant’s Woman - With its unforgettable scenes (Meryl Streep at the cobb of Lyme Regis, waves crushing against her dark silhouette), breath-taking landscapes and the mysterious charm, this film has a plenty to offer despite its weak script and disappoint second half.
3. Vicky Cristina Barcelona - Put two beautiful ladies, a fantastic city in my favorite country and some terrific Spanish music together and you get this. A film about life, love & experiences that for a change doesn’t try to find the meaning of it all. Maybe it’s because I experienced a summer in Barcelona myself, but I find it hard not to love Vicky Cristina Barcelona.
