The Devil Wears Prada (2006)

A young ambitious woman, who wants to become a journalist, achieves to become the 2nd assistand of Miranda Priestly (Meryl Streep), the editor of the biggest magazine in New York... a job that many girls would kill for. But the job to kill for comes with a killing boss! Andy Sachs (Anne Hathaway) will try to satisfy all of her boss's demands and day by day will gain her trust, but at what cost?

The plot has no intrest, since it is another cinderella alike story. There is nothing to expect and nothing you can't predict before the end of the movie.But there is a bright side of this movie though. Meryl Streep acting was very convincing in the role of the boss with that bitchy and demanding attitude, Stanley Tucciis also one of these bright moments of the film. The music is not bad too. I would like to make a notice that in a scene appeared Valentino and the supermodel Gisele. I am not expert to say but the costumes and the clothes were nice too.

If you are fan of M.Streep, or you are interested in the new collection of Prada then you should see this film. Hardly i would classify this movie as a comedy, but if those were the intentions of the writer... oh what a strange sense of humor!!! We are anticipating the sequel of this film "The Angel Wears Gucci" guess!!!

Thank You For Smoking - 2006

Nick Naylor (Aaron Eckhart) is the spokesman of the Tobacco Industry. He is the guy that everyone hates. Words like immoral, unhesitating and modern Mephistopheles accompany his name. Although he is clever, witty and he can convince you that smoking is not bad for your health. Together with his friends, the spokesmen of alchohol and firearms, The Merchants of Death as they called, Nick will assert that he is selling a freedom of choice and not cigarettes.

Director Jason Reitman comment on such a heavy subject with smart humor and satire. Robert Duvall is the Captain of the smoking industry while Rob Lowe is a workaholic agent from Hollywood and Katie Holmes is a "I'll do everything for a story" reporter. Crazy characters, that "defend" or "attack" smoking industry... just to pay the mortgage.

In the end I realy enjoyed the film.

Fight Club - 1999

How could I ever start writing about movies and not set off with 'Fight Club'...

Fight Club is one of my favourite movies not only for the excellent acting of all three main actors (Brad Pitt - Edward Norton and of course last but not least by far Helena Bonham Carter) but also because I believe that this film combines everything. Deep social meaning (are we truly by-products of an overconsuming society?) as well as political (is anarchy the answer to all modern man's problems?) but also great sound track, acting and of course direction by the overwhelming David Fincher.

What I enjoy most about this movie is the depressing and simultaneously comforting sense of loneliness one feels (at least I do) when I see it. You see a world in front of your eyes with a lot of strangers trying to relief their pain by subjecting it to someone else. When all the frustration is finally pumped out the idea of social change evolves and everyone is happy...

I believe that this is a "must see" movie and everyone should not only watch it but also think about it carefully. Till next time...

Le fabuleux destin d'Amelie Poulain - 2001

This is my first time i write for this site, so i would like to start with a movie, which is very special to me. And since the site is new i would like to give you a warm welcome with this movie...

"Le fabuleux destin d'Amelie Poulain"

The movie is about a very cute girl (Aundrey Tautou) which lives in Paris and she is a waitress in a cafe. She lives peacefully until some day a minor event will give her another purpose in her life. She decides to change the world around her with a funny way and through this change she happens to find love in a young, weird guy, Nino (Mathieu Kassovitz).

The role of Amelie Poulain comes natural to Andrey Tautou and with her childish cuteness gives us a memorable performance. The same goes for Mathieu Kassovitz. Jean-Pierre Jeunet's shots are great he does a magnificent work espesially with the alleys of Montmartre and giving us the flavor of a boem side of life in Paris which are perfectly combined with the "magical" music, composed by Yann Tiersen, giving us a fairy tale result!!!

The film is about the iron will of a girl after all, which she definately will change your life... Enjoy!!!
