I saw an interesting movie yesterday, called Good Bye, Lenin!. It's about a German family and their life after fall of DDR. In the middle of everything there is a woman who wakes up after 8 months being in a coma, and her son, who tries to protect her fragile health by trying to prevent her from knowing about the faith of her beloved nation of East Germany.



oh and by the way
I find Alex (the main character) pretty cute  :blush:

Hey! I saw that movie a few years ago, and it's indeed pretty good. I loved the way of presenting the re-unification from a different perspective. :thumbup:

I'm sure it can be downloaded dubbed in Spanish. I know... a terrible crime for most of you, but we're used to hear movies in Spanish (or Catalan)  ¬¬

Well, Luth this only applies to kid's movies or movies that are planned to be a total commercial hit. And even in that case, you can probably find a subtitled version playing in the cinema at the same time. Otherwise, we're all limited to subtitles only. :whistle:
Well, that's at least how it works in Latin America.

Hi One,

if you use eMule or Lphant or any other P2P software to get the movie, you can have that movie dubbed in Spain very easily  :insane:

Well TheOne, unfortunately that's not the way it works in this side of pond. Most (all?) movies are doubled... even those for adults. It's a real challenge to find a movie in it's original version with subtitles. So, you better look for a Latin American version.
Oh!.... and when I say doubled movies, I say doubled in Spanish from Spain (with the vosotros and the z's and everything!)... try to imagine Darth Vader or the last Joker speaking like that :blink: .

Although I would prefer the German version, of course. :shifty:

Well than I'm lucky coz I never watch movies that are not in english and have no subtitles in english.. usually I watch only movies in english with no subtitles.. or like I was watching movie 300 (speaking english, subtitles  in french..haha..  and I understoos it both :P )

@Misti: Good Bye, Lenin! Is a great movie. I've watched it at least 4 times on national tv (with slovenian subtitles) and I could watch it over and over again.

There's also another movie I find interesting. it's in french..and in german.. talks about how two armies - german and french spend their Christmas together..like there was no war going on.. it really moved me.  :blush: I think it's called Joeux Noël ( Marry Christmas).
It can't rain all the time so put a smile on your face and proudly take another step.

Yesterday evening I went to the cinema to watch ”Reprise”, a Norwegian movie. The cinema itself was that old fashioned one with small rooms and the soft continuous sound of the projecting machine in the background... I enjoyed that a lot. :)

It’s hard to say anything about it... One of the obvious things is that I liked the sound of the language a lot. (It was in original language, with Hungarian subtitles.) They even say in the movie, when they are in Paris, that Norwegian must sound like some hissing incomprehensible language to the foreigners. Well, this is only partly true for me, You know that I’m very much into languages, so I’ve been listening to the ”hissing” more than interested. :)

The story seems to be very simple. Two great friends, with ambitions to become great writers. It would be funny to have a linear story-telling, from the beginning to the end, like ”this and this and that happened and they lived happily ever after.” Life isn’t like this – so the film, as if it was the parody of the very same film itself, showed some variations to the same story, and sometimes didn’t even told us which one is real. (How strange, I’m reading a similar book right now.)

I liked the fact that the film was so real (in one sense). All this could have happened to me as well, and I felt like this mostly because I too wanted to write. But in the same time, I liked that the film was full of events that we are used to call ”miracles”, some everyday inexplicable mysteries. (For example the two guys like a lot a Norwegian writer, who is living alone, and never talks to anyone. They know that every attempt to get close to him is in vain, and they even fail during the one and only possibility to talk to him. And then, after a series of coincidences, one of the men suddenly finds himself in his very home, and they begin to talk.)

I do believe that this is how life is in real indeed. :)

I was a bit afraid to go to see the film, because I read that it’s a drama, and I didn’t want to feel down. As usual, my curiosity was stronger. Strangely the movie helped my slightly depressed mood of nowadays, when I was walking home in the rain, I clearly felt some kind of relief. :blink:

exactly  :biggrin:

my recommendation is to watch it in German ;) but it's your call, Jorge

@Lucy: I haven't heard of the movie you're talking about, but I must admit that it sounds pretty interesting. I'll try to get my hands on it some time and watch it :)

Well, I've heard both characters dubbed to (our very own and Latin) Spanish and with their original speech in their original language. So, those aren't hard to imagine... :biggrin: But I know what you mean. I see it in every video game that is translated to Spanish. That's why I always set the language in them to be in English.

Most (all?) movies are doubled... even those for adults. It's a real challenge to find a movie in it's original version with subtitles.
... and three days later Madrid proved me wrong :biggrin: . Yesterday, I went to see the last Woody Allen's movie: Vicky, Cristina, Barcelona. It turned out to be the original version with Spanish subtitles for the English parts (i.e. 80% of the movie) and... to my big surprise the cinema was crowed as hell, and there were no complains about subtitles or anything. Things seem to be changing and that's good :thumbup: .

Anyway, on topic: the film is very, very good. It's not the "typical" Woody Allen movie with lots of ridiculous situations taken to the extreme. It is far more subtle... it shows a couple of opposite stereotypes at the beginnig, shakes them up in a quiet torrid way and then makes fun of them for the rest of the film. It's so good, that I'll have to see it again to gather more details about the characters, the way art is shown and of course ... the city. Barcelona is almost everywhere in the film (it's a character of the film!). Highly recomended :thumbup:

Eya Alu!

I saw that movie on Saturday...as it could not be another way living where I live  :ninja:

I have to explain that this is not the normal thing, having more original versions than dubbed ones... in fact, I can't remember any other movie in which that fact happened  -_-   The version I saw was the only one I had in my own city (small city... remember...): dubbed to Catalan. Well, being dubbed to Catalan instead of Spanish is already a strange fact, I may say :insane:  Of course it's not the good option, but better than having it dubbed to Spanish: how the hell can you know where are the characters speaking in Spanish and when in English if all the movie is spoken in Spanish? At least I could knew that Catalan=English and Spanish=Spanish  :nana:

I can't fully agree with Al about the goodness of the movie: I liked it a lot, really, and I enjoyed the viewing... but I don't think it's an art work as so many people says... I'm sure that there are a lot of Woody Allen movies better than that. Despite that I really like the movie, the dialogs and the characters (and the place where all they happen, of course  :ninja: ). I don't like too much Penélope Cruz as an actress, but I think that her work is perfect: in fact, I'm sure that the character has been written according to the actress  :biggrin: Simply brilliant.

About Barcelona... yes, it's another character of the movie, and an important one, I have to say. The first half hour is a touristic guide of the city; but it could have been Paris, NY or Hong Kong, if Woody Allen has decided that. Of course, having "my" city in such important movie, made by such a genius (the director), is a proud motive....  :evil2:

Summarizing: a very good movie, more important to us because of the city, but not the best one of the director.

A movie to enjoy  :whistle:

Saw The Marsh over the weekend.

Kinda weird, this movie was released in 2006 and up to now showing in theaters  :wacko:

Anyways, I liked it! It's a scary movie and manages to scare the hell out of you in many scenes ( I like it when scary movies to that to me).  :thumbup:

8/10. Great movie. No wonder it was nominated for an Oscar. It's a nice watch after the disappointment with "Wanted."
