Maybe this one will be better--I believe that it's the first time a virtuoso violinist has been played by a virtuoso violinist.  Charlotte Watson was real; her father intercepted her in Boulogne during her elopement attempt and took her to America to marry somebody named Bailey.

But this aria was evidently written for the movie:

Pienso en ti, amor,
cuando el resplandor del sol
brilla sobre el mar ...

Actually, not. It turns out the melody is the 2nd movement of Paganini's 4th violin concerto.

btw, whoever doubts the truth of the story needs only to consider this 1833 London cartoon, in which Paganini says something like:

"Great Caesar's ghost [or words to that effect]--there is another performer on one string who draws his bow with more effect than mine!"

I am told that the must-see movie right now is called "Leviyafan."

Like all Russian movies, it's sort of based on the book of Job.

They say this is where it all began. Smile

[This will be after Leviathan, of course]

They say that "Short Circuit" has been remade with Slumdog Millionaire playing the Indian guy.

Even if only the Patels go, it will be well attended.

FYI, we do already have a Blompkamp Topic, but I guess it's OK to put that here.  

Blompkamp says that what he likes to do is take an absurd concept ( like a Robotic Police Officer who wants to be a ballerina) and treat it realistically to the point of mundane-ness, ( underlined by a South African sense of kookiness ).  This is known as The Blompkamp Effect.

Are we all going to turn out for this, or not so much?

I've been looking for a realistic movie about the spy business, but mostly they just make stuff up. Rolling Eyes

This one looks more realistic than any in recent memory.

i saw the traler for The Hunger Games 4 : Mockingjay Part II, and once again, Jennnifer Lawrenc's face is more plastic surgeried than befor.  I m starting to worry that she has Michael Jackson Syndrome Shocked

the reason i was making such a rumpus about spoilers is because here on this internet site, both a sexy alien movie was spoiled, and a sexy robot movie was spoiled - and those are the only types of movies i get excited to see, i don't really care if other kinds of movies are spoiled, like ones with Colin Friths or Timofey Mozgov

That explains german Al Pacino https://youtu.be/OTY_Fq5SBgk?t=6m37s


The other day I saw Donnie Brasco, maybe it was too straight in the way of suggesting the evolution of Johnny Depp towards him- and that worked against the veracity of the progress of an underlying tie that would finally emerge to stay, but I think Al Pacino's acting, especially to the end, made it possible, especially since I decided to activate the subtitles

Possibly when Donnie Brasco was produced, it might not have been intended to suggest the evolution of Johnny Depp.

Al Pacino might speak German, but nothing beats Natasha Romanoff speaking Russian. I love you I love you I love you
