Red Cliff I & II

I just love this movie. The scale of the battles and the characters are great. Would love to see more like this.

Lukas Moodysson's new film We are the Best, based on his wife's graphic novel, about three teenage girls starting a punk band in 80's Sweden. It's a massive return to form for Moodysson to the funny and bright uplifting films of his first two efforts Show Me Love and Together. The three leads are fantastic and the Swedish punk music is catchy as hell. I seen Empire's 4 star review I agree in it and well worth catching it in the cinema.

Norwegian Wood (director's cut)

Couldn't get into this one. Didn't get the point of it all (never read the book btw, maybe that's why). Acting was good but that didn't save the film for me. 5/10

Watched Big Bad Wolves last night, brilliant film tho they could have made the subtitles clearer as there were a few times when the white writing on light image meant you missed half a sentence.

Le Clan des Siciliens 8,5/10


One of my favourite French gangster films. Brilliant performances from Jean Gabin and Alain Delon.

Last foreign films watched - Les Diaboliques and Le Corbeau.

It is indeed a great film and so is Les Diaboliques. I was always sceptic about French cinema but my father advised me to watch the old gangster classics and there are some true gems among them. I can also recommend these two movies I have recently watched:

Mélodie en Sous-sol 9/10

Touchez pas au Grisbi 8/10

The last scene of Mélodie en Sous-sol is definitely on of the best movie ends I have seen.

Persona
"A film that isn`t made to understand but to experience." says Bergman in one of the extra`s on the Criterion release. He certainly succeeded there. The film as a whole as well as some of the seperate scenes can be explained in many different ways. And an experience it sure is. With strong lighting, a lot of close-ups and wonderfull acting this is a real experience.
To say too much about it will, for those who haven`t seen it yet, only take away from the viewing.
Best thing is to just watch it and undergo without knowing too much about it up front.
A great work from Bergman that can and will be re-wachted often.

8,5/10

Liv & Ingmar
A feature length documentary that is an extra on the Criterion blu-ray and dvd. It tells the story of the meeting, the collaborations and relation that Liv Ullmann and Ingmar Bergman (who met on the set of Persona) had.
The story is told from Ullmann`s point of view and it uses archival material, pieces from both their biographies and personal letters that Bergman wrote Ullmann over the years. We get an impression of the often tough and hard relationship they had. Ullmann speaks with respect but sometimes with some sort of disgust about her ex-husband, with whom she often had a difficult time.
A beautiful and emotional documentary that is well worth watching if you have the Criterion release of Persona.

7,5/10

Höstsonaten (Autumn Sonata)
Ingrid Bergman and Liv Ullmann play a mother and daughter who haven`t seen each other for seven years. Accepting Eva`s (Ullmann) invitation, the busy concert pianist Charlotte (Bergman) visits her daughter. It doesn`t really go according to her plan: stories of why the two haven`t seen each other for so long are brought up and talked about extensively.
Wrapped in soft pastel shades, this is a really intens drama that as the film goes on only gets more painful and intense with the climax being the discussion the two have about Eva`s youth. The result is one of the strongest best acted scenes I`ve seen over the last few years. It gives you a lump in your throat and as the viewer you get ever more uncomfortable. Like Eva`s husband, you feel you`re a voyeur that really shouldn`t be seeing this and shouldn`t be a part of their discussion. It`s gripping and moving, as is the film as a whole.
Maybe this is a bit of a lesser known Bergman film but it is one of the best I`ve seen so far. A masterpiece.

9,0/10
