>Lazy Thursday Evening Post

>

I can’t really believe the news these days… It’s been a while I have followed as less of daily news as possible. But sometimes you can’t help it, the news come to you no matter what. Especially big tragic news. As it’s clear for everyone else at this point, school massacres are no longer a north american issue. It’s been happening all over the world now. No matter which were the cases, I just can’t really understand why. I guess I never will. Changing the subject drastically, has anyone gone to H&M this morning? I haven’t. I’m not quite sure if the collection designed by Cavalli has arrived here where i live. I’ve taken a look in some of the clothes on net and there was nothing so appealing. Maybe because the only animal print articles I’d like to possess someday would be leopard printed peep-toe pumps and a leopard printed winter coat. For the rest, no, thanks. I guess I’m alone in these matters. Just look at the photo above taken today in one of the swedish brand stores located in Amsterdam. So funny.


Is she happy or is she sad?

It’s been a while I don’t go to the movies. I’ve missed Stardust, I haven’t seen Evening and today it’s the last Rendition day in Randers theater after only a week. 9h15pm session, rainy cold autumn night. The film got some pretty bad reviews, though what critics say doesn’t really matter to me. Oh, I’m so lazy tonight. I’ve seen Melinda & Melinda a couple of days ago, and it was one of the best Woody Allen films I’ve seen in a while (Match Point is obviously included here). The story has a very creative and original plot. A couple of writers are sitting on a cafe while discussing about Melinda, a woman who suddenly arrived in a dinner party. Some of the writers will see a drama in her life story whereas some other person will see nothing but elements for a great comedy. The film narrates two different stories about the same character and the only aspect both stories have in common is the fact Melinda is trying to rebuild her emotional life after her divorce. Radha Mitchell, who plays Melinda, is amazing and I can’t believe she didn’t get award nominations by the time the film was released. The comic Melinda is much more colorful, and she makes an equally comic character, played by Will Ferrell (I like this guy more and more!), to fall in love with her. Many scenes played by Will are hilarious, especially an incident where he’s trying to hear from the apartment’s door what his beloved one and another man are saying in an intimacy moment. Will’s character is so deliciously neurotic that could have been played by Woody himself in his younger years. Tragic Melinda is almost always in a bad hair day. She’s an avid drinker and smoker, besides mixing it up with pills. The best in the films happens when Allen intertwines the tragic and the comedy, as it can’t be always tragedy or always laughing. There’s humour elements in the drama segment as there’s not only laughing in the comic one. And as in many Allen films, Manhattan has never looked so charming and sophisticated, always breathing culture and good taste.

Finishing this fast post, two lovely pictures of sweet Audrey Hepburn, both taken during 1950s. How gorgeous she looks.
