In one of the lessons in my school we choose a musical instrument to learn.There are many options, just like piano, guitar, violin and other classical instruments.Actually telling the truth we can learn from bagpipes to drums.So when it was my turn to choose,I chose greek traditional "drums" just like toumpeleki, daire, mpentir, rek, ntaouli and other...... Just for your information all of them except toumpeleki, are greek traditional instruments, that actually exist from Ancient Greece.As for toumbeleki we know the arabian toumbeleki and the egyptian one.In Greece something similar to these is dabla that is an instrument usually played in Greek islands.
A slice of heaven right here on earth, "Amelie" is a joy to behold, and has some of the most gorgeous cinematography I've ever seen in a movie.
Audrey Tatou is perfection as the title character. A combination of Audrey Hepburn, DollyLevi and Roger Rabbit, she involves herself in the world surrounding her as a means of really enjoying living. There are moments when she finds complete and total joy just walking down the street. Some of it is hilarious, too..like when her pet goldfish habitually tries to commit suicide, or when she is on the telephone with the man at the porno shop, or when a character is asked "Are you a congenital shmuck"?But for the most part, its a human comedy, aboutlove, of course.Just beautiful. 10/10.
SKY CAPTAIN: A COMIC BOOK STORY THAT COMES TO LIFE....review
This is a comic book story that truly comes to life. The entire movie has an surreal color tint. A mix of Indiana Jones, James Bond and a little Ernest P. Worrell blended into an action packed flick that plays well as a Saturday matinée or as a late night goodie. The entireproduction is CG with the actors seemingly superimposed. There are scenes that are obviously meant to be comic book gender whereas other scenes are quite realistic in appearance andintent.Gwyneth Palrowas Polly Perkins andJude Lawas Sky Captain play off each other extremely well. Anjelina Jolieis just OK in her role.
This is an atypical 'save the world from disaster' film which takes SKY and Pretty Polly to far away places with strange sounding names beautiful and eerie. I believe the Disney production 'Tron' was the first film that used CG in a way never seen before but this little treat transforms CG into an entirely new art form. The film presents as if it were a pleasing dream which one would like to remember after awakening.
