Harel Skaat - Je Suis Malade

Another cute song from Harel. Am a fan!
Is it his voice or that he reminds me Meine Hare? Saves my day either way :)

grr... I need some inspiration! For last week I have tried to write something about pearl what fits to Dr. Caligari movie, but it all sounds so lame. Am so close to finish up everything I need to do for my application for master studies... And nothing, nix, ei yhtikäs mitään!
I hope I will have inspiring day tomorrow, when I will be helping O and G to print shirts.
I hate this so close and still so far away thing...

I have some problems with my blogs layout. It drives me crazy that it does not work how it used to. So that's why it looks little messy. Hope to fix it soon.

Freyja is a goddess associated with love, beauty, fertility, gold, war, and death. And rides a chariot driven by two cats.

Merle Oberon was just wonderful as George in A song to remember. Whole movie was really good old school Hollywood. Would love to see this movie once more and something more from her too!

Maybe I post something about her later this week :)


UK 1991 / 107 min
Dir: James Lapine, cast: Hugh Grant (Chopin), Judy Davis, Julian Sands

Novelist George Sand (Judy Davis) falls in love with composer Frederic Chopin (Hugh Grant). She tries to profess her love for him at a weekend hosted by a pretentious, artistically minded duchess for famous musicians, artists, and writers of the day. The gentle and sickly Chopin is wary of the outspoken Sand, but finds himself strangely drawn to her, as well.

USA 1944 / 113 min

Dir: Charles Vidor, cast: Cornel Wilde (Chopin), Paul Muni, Merle Oberon

Plot (from a story by Ernst Marischka) introduces Chopin as a prodigy at 11, with Paul Muni playing the old music master who easily recognizes his genius. When 22, the student and teacher flee to Paris after Chopin refuses to perform for the Russian governor. Young Franz Liszt befriends the newcomer and is directly responsible in getting him recognition.

Cornel Wilde career took off after he played Chopin in this movie (1944), for which he received a Best Actor Oscar nomination. So, looking promising.

Czeslaw Wollejko, as Chopin from yesterday, did good job. The movie itself would been better without the unnatural policy, what could been so easily cut out.

This I have been waiting for all year! I love those mini film festivals! Usually they are connected to Germany like last year theme was "after war, before wall" and before that movies made by Ernst Lubitsch. This year it is about Chopin, but selection is still very interesting for me.

Poland 1952 / 121 min

This Polish-made biofilm of composer Frederic Chopin (Czeslaw Wollejko) centers on the life of the young artist in 1825-31, as he becomes caught up in the nation's rising tide of revolutionary spirit.
Katariina Church at Vene street is just right place were to show old movies, don't you think?
